How to Reduce Lag & Disconnection Problem In DotA - Garena

Advertisements:



Garena Lag Problem
Lag in online gaming is a very common and annoying problem which is faced by almost every online Gamer. This changes the gaming experience significantly and sometimes causes anger in an individual. In Garena DotA, this problem is even worst. Nowadays, A lot of players are facing lag, delay and disconnection issues which easily ruins the game and thus results a remake. Here are some tips which might help you in reducing lag while playing DotA on Garena.

Reduce Lag, Delay Problems in Garena - DotA:

• Make sure that you have a stable broadband internet connection with at least 512kbps download and 128kbps upload. Avoid using Wireless internet as it is considered bad for online gaming due to it's instability and higher latencies.

• It is recommended to play in your country rooms, you will experience low pings there so, there are less chances of lag.

• Close other all programs while playing that are using your internet bandwidth which includes: uTorrent, Anti-virus Update, Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Download Managers etc.

• Try not join host with "X" pings, you may start lagging or get disconnected during game, sooner or later.

• If you see many X pings in game room, It's because Garena servers are overloaded. Try rejoining game room, change servers and re-login Garena. If it still doesn't help it means your port is not forwarded from your Modem/Router. Search Port Forwarding guides for your modem on Portforward.com

• If you are disconnecting during a game, You must rejoin room and ask host to do the same. If you do this, There is a big chance that you may comeback.

This can be done by doing the following:
1. Switch to Garena by pressing ALT+TAB.
2. On the right bottom of Garena, Click Menu > My Recent Room > Noobs DotA Room.
• If you want to host your own server, Make sure you have a good PC and uploading speed, around 512Kbps to 1Mbps in order provide lag-less experience to other players.

• Using Garena Tunnel option while playing a game does not reduce lag/delay problem. Tunnel only works when a player can't see game server of other player in Warcraft 3.

• Add Garena and Warcraft 3 in your Network Firewall safelist so it does not block any port which Garena or Warcraft 3 uses.

Lastly, I hope this guide helps you in improving your DotA gaming experience on Garena. If you have any problem or you have any other tips or tricks you would like to share, please post a comment.

uTorrent produces delay.
if anyone is connected to your internet (wireless)
while they have uTorrent on, ask them to close it.

^ utorrent uses mass uploading speed if your torrent status is on seeding.. you will lag like hell

Ok it says Tunnel function does not reduce delay/lag but why sometimes when asked to tunnel when the player is getting delay it reduces the delay and lag is no more?

tip : if you want to know the real ping of a host, try the "ping" ( just under tunnel ) then wait 2-3secs, and you will see the real stable ping of the host in the room users list

Anonymous said...

And one more thing host doesnt need to rejoin an room he can just simple tunel the guy who reconected the room.

people should consider the PC that they are using low end PC can cause lags and delay so their is no need to be angry to other players but to the antique PC that they use :) we have try this on LAN games it has the same result no other programs are running aside from the game :)

tunnel works..cuz there are chances that u lost connection from the host and ur getting high ping even u have a low ping before the game start,,thats when tunnel works cuz it help ur connection from the game host to become stable..its better not only the host make tunnel but also the player before he DC..common sense lng s room ping X at d mu mkita un host nya pero nbbasa mu un message nya n magjoin s kanya ibig svhin my connection kau d mu lng mkita host nya kc high ping xa kya mu itunnel tas lalabas un gamehost nya s message board so in the sense nagwowork un tunnel mga bubu even during gameplay lalo s mga maDDC,,s lag namn mga bubu pag broadband kau tas nka router at my iba p nagnenet un bandwith nyu tumataas in the sense n maglalag tlga lalo s comshop.,ska dpende p yan s network traffic pro s gabi low an network traffic lalo madaling araw..

one thing to be clear tunnel helps s mga maDDC lang...pero s naglalag its either un pc nyu mabagal or network nyu..kya its better n tunnel nyu muna un host bgo magstart un game kun low ping..pag 80 pababa un mas mataas un chances n stable un game unless if other player are only playing dota at wla nkabukas n application kya wag nyu sisihin un host or pc nyu kz un ibang player mbilis un network nila khit my ibang apllication n nkabukas..

lastly pra s mga bobo check ping before you join pag 100 pataas un ping wag n kau sumali ng d kau nagrereklamu n laggy or delay mga bubu..kya nga my ping s garena
