LAG - Imperian Online Help

19.7 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.
