Packet loss issues

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The problem I'm having is in BF4. I thought it was a lag issue before but after upgrading components software and tweaking everything I could think of I still get pretty much the same experience when playing. The problem is when engaged in a shootout even if I know I hit the other player in the head I still end up dead. The problem is when I'm in a tank the enemy can come out from behind rocks or buildings get a rocket off and score on me before I ever see them and I'd be looking right in their direction. The problem is when I'm trying to take cover, or when I use ECM while flying. I'm always to late. I've done performance tests while in game and it telling me the servers that have packet loss. I guess there is nothing I can do about that since it's coming from the internet side of the modem. Would a VPN service help? I've heard VPN's are better at routing traffic for faster and cleaner data transfers.

It sounds to me like you're encountering one of the gazillion bugs in the game/servers. VPN adds overhead and latency, which won't help your game.
