Netword Latency or LAG - Imperian Online Help
19.15 Netword Latency or LAG
Lag (also known as latency) is an unfortunate part of all mudding experiences. When you connect to Imperian from your ISP (internet service provider), your connection will be routed by many (perhaps as many as 15 or 20) different computers on different connecting networks. So, unfortunately, if any of those computers on those networks are having problems or are just overloaded, you will experience lag. This isn't a feature of Imperian. This is the way the internet works. All we can really recommend in the case of internet lag is to suffer through it, or come back later.
