Assalamualikum people of the world,
I have an issue with csgo and ingame ping (lag spikes). When i play causal matches on the official csgo servers and sometimes in MM, I lag at random times for no apparent reasons. My ping will go from 90-120 to 300 and beyond and be back to normal the next second or so. I have tried lots of solutions i found online and none have managed to fix the lag. So now i look to you guys to help me solve this problem. If you need any info about my laptop or any thing i need to run in the game tell me, give instructions and i will happily provide you the info needed.

Thank you in-advance.

Seems like a ping issue more than anything else. What ISP do you have, and are there people besides yourself that use your internet? Downloads, streaming etc can cause ping spikes.

I use PTCL, now don't go saying it's PTCL's fault because i have been using it for my entire gaming life and it has had it's ups and downs but it is a good enough ISP and also the ping spikes happen only in CSGO (i play LoL and PoE as well). The internet is my families internet as well they use it to do what ever they want to do. It is an 8mb connection and most of the time i get full speed.

Literally can't help you if you don't want help dude. And it is PTCL's fault, one of my friends reports lag spikes too with a PTCL connection in Siege and CS:GO. The only solution here is probably change your ISP, or maybe get another connection solely for gaming purposes. Otherwise I guess you gotta live with it.

If you think it's a fault with your PC or game settings, take your PC to a friend's house and game on his/her internet. Then let us know if the lag spikes persist.

here's the thing... problem you are having i had same because my line's weren't Fiber they were non-fiber... so after i'm on fiber i'm getting stable pings 95-100.
and the issue i raised above happened like 2 days ago and its fixed now.
I get 95-100 ping on dubai as well on this 8mb PTCL connection. My problem is not about continuous lag it is about lag spikes like one moment my ping is going from 100 to 300 and back the next second.

You mentioned playing on wi-fi on a laptop? Try using an ethernet instead, or try my suggestion above, take your laptop to a friend's place and play on their connection. If it's a problem with your internet, you shouldn't get lag spikes. If it's a problem with game settings or OS, you'll still get them. It will help us narrow the issue down.

it probably still can be your wifi card causing probelm.... i had a HP laptop it used to drop signals while i was in game so my ping spiked maybe that might be an issue for you... try using ether net...

It is an issue with my laptop. I guess I will have to live with it until I can afford a better laptop or gaming PC.

    Pyra being a quasi-sports game kinda threw me off, not the kind of game i wanted to play

    Transistor's worth it imo. Didn't like Pyre, though. They aren't related, so you could just play Hades directly

    ive never played transistor, worth it ? or just jump into hades

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Yeah, it's similar to their previous games. Isometric roguelike ARPG.
