I understand many factors contribute to lag but I am only wanting to talk about the mysterious continental lag. If I call someone on the phone while they are in France and I am in the United States I do not expect to get lag. What causes international mmorpg lag? Will there ever come a day when I in the USA can play with people in Britain, Australia, Philippines, and Japan without it making my character stagger like an insane drunk?
What's the hold up with this tech?
