We recommend at least a 6Mbps bandwidth to play Rogue Assault with minimal connectivity issues. To check this performance, we recommend using an independent speed test (not run by your service provider). One that we recommend is Testmy.net. Here are instructions for accessing it:
- Head to http://testmy.net/
- Click the black button that says: "Test My Internet +" and then the 'Combined' option.
- Allow the test to fully complete.
Once the test's results are loaded, check them out. Does your Download speed indicate that it's less than 6Mbps at any point? If so, there may be a problem with the strength of your connection and you should reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to share these results with them.
In addition to these Internet speed requirements, the game requires your computer to be able to communicate efficiently with our servers. Many game activities are resolved on our servers, so if your connection experiences interruptions, this can seriously affect game performance. You can check for problems in this department by performing a test called a traceroute. This is the route your signal takes to reach our servers and return to you. When these server-to-server "hops" have ping times over 100ms, players start experiencing performance issues; above 150ms, players can expect significant lag and disconnections. Dropped data in the test results (indicated in the test window by * or **) will also affect performance.
In order to run a trace route search your App Store for, "traceroute," and select an app of your choice. Please use directory-productiontools.wcra.kixeye.com as your destination website in place of "example."
