Still having problems? Try a few of these tips!

  • Have you updated your drivers recently? Try rolling back to an old driver.
  • Don't know your machine specifications? Run "dxdiag" from a command prompt. There's also an option to save all information if you want to send your dxdiag file to us.
  • Do you run antivirus software? If you need a recommendation on free antivirus software that is good for gaming, ask us.
  • Run an internet speed test. Are you streaming while you play? WiFi far away from the access point? Is your router using a QoS or traffic management setting to limit bandwith?
  • Run a "tracert " with the server's IP address following the command. That will run a trace route of your connection to the server. This can sometimes help identify a problem.
