Lag Time Hurts the Gaming Experience
No matter where they play in the world, online gamers react swiftly and negatively to poor web performance. Their ultra-high sensitivity to slow frame rates or lags in the gaming experience makes them quick to abandon a slow gaming site, in favor of competitive game offerings that are just a click away. As such, game developers cannot afford to offer a gaming experience that is less than perfect. Just milliseconds of unwanted lag time can lead to significant losses in player volume and revenue.
