It shouldn’t be like that otherwise my pings would be going up and down regardless time of day and nationality, but it seems to remain at consistent 180-200 ping despite players logging off or on during certain times of the days.
Also to answer the 144 fps, it’s what makes the game look new. Stutter stepping, microing alot more easier, and obviously beautiful smooth game-play. Try to imagine the current up-to-date games of how smooth it is and apply it to WC 3 fighting animations. Also to those that invest in their PC’s, it does allow you to see 30-40 frame-rates ahead of your opponents and giving you the ability to act on it if you got the reflex and keen eye for it. Finally, be sure to follow it up with new mouse or keyboard, or take really good care of your current ones.
However there’s a few things at play to achieve such a 144 fps state:
- The game and its graphics need to be coded to actually be 144 fps.
- The configurations and hardware of your PC must not be able to bottle-neck it, so above average or good GPU, memory and processors required.
- You need a monitor that can show 144 fps and have a 144 hz monitor with Gsync. Vsyncs usually default with most monitors.
- good Internet/good ping!!! This one’s obvious.
These 4 things bottle-neck each other if you’re playing any game so it’s important to know what’s going on when updating your PC. For example, imagine spending $1400 on a PC and you got an average monitor? Hell internet’s can be the worse as that’s out of your control. They do detract skill and quality.
I’d like to believe upgrading the animation on WC 3 Reforged fps requires a bit of work, but it shouldn’t be too hard nor company level expensive. The pay-out would be huge! It’d be an art form within an art form. Surely they could speed up the frame-rates on each animation to make it move faster without increasing the speed on the unit, so it looks so smooth, no-one would notice the choppiness. If it doesn’t work like that, maybe copy and paste the unit’s frame by frames lol.
I had a recent experience where I got top tier GPU, intel processors and motherboard, but my monitor broke, so I had to borrow a lesser older monitor. Let me put it this way, I couldn’t micro properly and went on a losing streak. The deceptive thing about that is, it makes it feel like it’s you that’s lacking in skill, it makes it feel like you literally can’t do more and that’s how it “normally” is- however I knew that wasn’t the case and was aware of it. Recently I got the LG 27 inch Ultra Gear monitor, and now I can use 5 hotkeys instantly in battle, taking revenge stomps on players that smacked me around, going on winning-express, micro much more while the game-play feels smoother. This applies to Heroes of the Storm especially. It’s a world of a difference. So because my theory’s correct, this then connects to another theory. If I can get 20-100 ping and after some practice with low ping, I’d be able to rival top tier players easy. :d
