2. Adjust PC for best performance

Control Panel --> System --> Advanced system settings --> System properties Advanced tab --> Performance settings --> Visual effects --> Select "Adjust for best performance" and click "Apply".

3. Disable Nagle's Algorithm

Although Nagle's algorithm is good for efficient data transfer, it can slow down the internet connection which can influence playing online games. Follow the steps to disable it.

  • Press "win + R" and type "Regedit".
  • Find: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces
  • Find the one which contains your IP address
  • After you find the required file, in the empty space, right click on it and create two new DWORD. Name of them as TcpAckFrequency and TcpNoDelay. After creating both simply double-click on it and set their parameters as "1".
