I am experiencing lag, what can I do?

If you are experiencing graphical frame rate drops (where you do not see a “poor network connection” message), a device restart will help.

If you are experiencing network lag, try these:

  • Check your in-game profile page to confirm that you are on the right server. (You’ll see REGION listed in the upper right)
  • Try turning off any bluetooth devices in your vicinity. Certain bluetooth devices can interfere with wireless signals.
  • Experiment with turning off streaming services for music, movies, etc. A family member’s reality TV show might be stealing all your thunder.
  • Make sure no cloud services are syncing or working in the background.
  • If you are playing over WiFi, restart your router. If you have a cable connection, also restart your cable modem. This can be easily done by unplugging the devices, waiting 30 seconds, then plugging them back in. It could take up to a few minutes for the devices to properly start up again.
  • Try playing closer to your router or changing your WiFi channel on your router to 5GHz to reduce network interference
  • Power off and reboot your device

If none of the above is any help, check that your network connection is not blocked by a firewall. This could certainly be an issue if you are playing from a public place such as from a school or workplace. For reference, all of the ports in ranges 7000~8020 are required for Vainglory to function properly.
