Decrease Latency in Counter Strike

Big question that pulls all the gamers away from Online gaming , especially counter strike is.

"How can i decrease my latency.?"

The Simple answer is "Practically You cannot".

There are two types of connections.
1. Dial Up
2. Cable.

Dial Up- Forget Online Gaming.

Coming to Cable connection.The famous myths..

Myth 1:

"Higher the Speed lower the latency"

As a matter of fact, speed has nothing to do with latencies. I was using 2 MBPS connection and downgraded to 256 kbps connection. the Latencies did not change.

Myth 2:

"Downloading something in the background while playing will affect the latency"

I always play counter strike while downloading something in the background.I never found even a small difference in my latency.


1. Distance is a first factor that affect the latency. Higher the distance , higher the latency.So always select a server from your country or adjacent countries.

2. Routing is the second factor. This depends on the ISP. The routing in BSNL differs from Airtel. Airtel users experience good latency when compared to BSNL users.

3. System configuration is the third factor. When satisfying all the above conditions, your system might be a reason for latency change. Drastic change in speed of the game(latency) can be experienced when more players come in a single screen or when smoke grenades has been used. make sure that you wont lag in these cases too.

Difference Between Cloudy Vision and Blurred Vision

Blurred Vision:

If the Sharpness of the Image goes of, its blurred Vision. The image appears like its is not Clear and details wont be clear enough to analyze what is what. In the worst case, the Shape of the Image goes blurred, even a Cow appear as an ATM Machine

Cloudy Vision:

Cloudy vision means
Consider a glass of water , add a drop of Milk in it.
Then see how it looks.
That is how you would see the world. The whole thing is clear but you would see a Mild Screen.
