PWNed by Lag in SWTOR?
In Star Wars the Old Republic when you are raiding or you are in battlegrounds, missing your moves really sucks. Most gamers look at the in-game ping meter, assuming that will tell them how their game connection is doing. The reality is that it will show a real-time or average estimate of what your connection is like, but it doesn't really tell you what is happening to your connection.
One thing that a typical in-game ping meter doesn't tell you is the reason why you lost that important move, resulting in your entire group getting wiped out! An average game connection can vary greatly from time to time, from user to user and from game to game. One of the things that WTFast does is help to smooth out your game connection, to help ensure you are always good to go during clutch moments. Nobody wants to be blamed for a total wipeout, you don't want to be THAT guy!
Some key examples of lag in SWTOR include being unable to actually loot your enemies, false character animations, i.e. you "think" you are doing something, but in reality nothing is actually getting to the game server, running on the spot and not actually moving anywhere (we all like exercise right?) and spell/ability delays.
All it takes is one moment like this during a key play and you could be toast! WTFast will smooth out your game connection, literally making the difference between a winning and losing move in online games!
