Lowering game latency with WTFast tunneling
Before jumping into the results it is important to note I have always tweaked my TCP/IP TCPAckFrequency setting within Windows registry. The normal results below will demonstrate while comparing WTFast’s results. Adjusting the TCPAckFrequency within the Windows registry is not necessary if using WTFast’s software, as this can be turned on within the application.
Giving WTFast a great way to shine was testing Aion’s connection from Hawaii — dropping latency from 589 to 212:
If you’re asking if WTFast is for every gammer, the answer is: Yes and No. For example, if you’re one of the lucky few who live directly near a games server (those who have 10-30 latency connections) then WTFast is not for you. Whether you need WTFast tunneling to lower your latency will greatly determine on your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and connection distance to your favorite online game(s), and WTFast offers up its trial software to find out. Keep in mind that not everyone will have the same results I found. ISP’s, distance and congestions are going to be the main factors in determining what your overall latency will be. While WTFast can make bad ISP’s look good, don’t expect it to work a total miracle for you — your gaming skills are something they can’t fix *wink*.
In all of my experience with WTFast I have found its capabilities to provide an extra edge with horrible ISP’s (or simply lowering the amount of hops it takes to get to the game server) and distance issues to my favorite games. This software nearly eliminates latency connection issues and gives my in-game characters better response times when critically needed — especially if battling it out in PVP. WTFast certainly deserves ipKonfig’s Editors choice award — it has saved countless deaths in WoW’s Arena’s and Battle Grounds, as well as other games. And let’s face it: we’re not living in S-Korea where the worlds fastest internet lives, so I’ll take all the latency assurance I can get!
