How much lag is acceptable in Guildwars 2?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I live in Kuwait, and there's not many gamers around here, so I usually play on European servers on other games. I average about, 170ms to <230ms I'd say. On an fps that's unplayable. But what about this game? Would it be playable with a 170ms-230ms ping? If yes, is it passable, barely passable, okay....etc?

I live in South Africa and playing on international servers always gets me 300+ latency. In a mmo or a game of Starcraft 2, it's not a big deal.

GW2 is very playable for me. You just have to be more predictive with the mobs abilities to dodge/block/deflect etc in time. smile.gif PVP I can't say, not that into it, but I always struggled in other MMOs with that latency in PVP.

So I'd say you are in the clear with >230 latency.
