During the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic, many people had to stay in their homes and this led to having to find new ways to have fun to stop thinking about the real world problems, as always, which led to the discovery of independent games that had little or no popularity, and among these games there is one that has swept the world of online streaming and gaming videos , and this was the infamous Among Us, created by the InnerSloth studio.

Among Us is essentially a very simple game to start playing, similar to games like Mafia and Clue, where players have to guess or have to deduce which of the playmates, or in most cases guess, is he a normal partner or is he a killer , operating with a simple voting system, but adding tasks that must be completed by the players, or the crew in this case, to win the game before the killer, or impostor, kills everyone, hence the name "Among us "which translates to" Between us ".

    Why is there lag in video games?

    While it is not possible to alter the connection of the servers, it is always possible to try and check how well the quality of the game can go.

    It should be understood that the Lag can be due to the high amount of pings or more, which is basically the time in milliseconds it takes for information to travel from the local server to the original server of the game or service, being a lower latency or Ping. so that the time is shorter, the general consensus is a ping of less than 100 ms .

    Another reason why there may be lag is the physical lag of the device, both on the mobile phone and on the computer, which can happen due to the lack of RAM memory that the device has or the overload of the internal memory, causing the fps, or the frames to the second, they are very small, so even if there is little ping they could there are problems with the fps , or viceversa.

    Strategies to improve performance and reduce game lag

    When playing, the application is normally in English, as the Spanish versions did not take priority today like the English ones, so to understand what it says you need to switch Among Us to the Spanish language.

    Having already understood this, it is necessary to admit that although the game can be better understood in Spanish, there is not much that can be done in it to solve the delay, but to recognize problems , it is necessary to understand if the delay is due to latency or memory .

    Solved the doubt, it is necessary to select which direction to take, if it is a Latency problem the possible solutions are to connect to a better Wi-Fi signal or to a server near the user's location , considering that for the Spanish country the server of "Europa" is the best option. Another option is to use a VPN to change the IP address and connect to a server located in one of the 3 regions.

    When the error is system memory, it is preferable free up the space of the device , speed up the device and repair the RAM so that the fps improves while in turn it is a good option to free up memory to improve the performance of the system.

    Lag, the weak point of the game Among Us

    Remember that the popularity of these games, as is the case with Among Us, is arrived from one day to another , with a monthly base of at least a few thousand players to millions of active players every day, and that is still increasing as there are many ways to download the game, even for free.

    This has led to server overload as a common problem, still a major problem in many places and times. The game servers, despite being functional, they couldn't keep up with the constant number of massive players that the game has enjoyed since its heyday.

    As only 3 different servers can be selected in the game: "North America", "Asia" and "Europe", leaving many players out of the reach of the servers and thus affecting the performance of these players.
