Reduce The Lag is a service designed to reduce the latency for several massively multiplayer online games
We bounce your game data via our network of servers before finally sending it onto the real game servers. The result is more stable network communications for your game, with up to a half in latency.
Install RTL and just play, lag free!
No programs to run every time, no usernames and passwords, no game crashes and no overloaded servers. Once RTL is installed you never need to think about it again. Just open World of Warcraft (Wow), Aion, Tibia, Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) or Tera, and play lag free.
Both the RTL client and our server software has been custom written for the task.
Utilizing geodns server allocation with automatic load balancing and failover of over 40 servers you will never have to worry about which server has the best lag and least load for you.
Why is low latency important?
Online games are designed to be fun, entertaining, and to look great!
Unfortunately the net code is often given a back seat and the designers simply don’t have as much experience with online networks.
The effects of this are not normally noticed because the game is written, tested, and played by gamers usually less than a few hours away. Every spell they cast, every action they take, every little thing they do gets to the game servers faster than 1/10th the blink of an eye.
For players further away this delay can become a full half second!
We’ve been significantly disadvantaged.
By reducing your latency with Reduce The Lag (RTL) you can even the odds. Every action gets to the game servers almost twice as quick! Attacking, Casting, Moving, Jumping, Looting, Dueling … every action!
With a heap of servers, private networks and employees proficient in network programming at our disposal, we decided we should do something about it.
We are confident you will be very impressed with our solution.
