I searched the forums and did not find a post regarding gaming over VPN. If there already is a post on the subject, forgive me and provide a link, please. I am experiencing some latency (lag) when playing “Call of Duty: Ghosts” multiplayer online game. I am connecting to airvpn's (Kuma) server via a DD-WRT router and the connection is very stable. I have an xbox 360 connected via Ethernet cable to the router with UPNP turned on (NAT open). On average my connection stats via VPN are: ping: 54, DL: 3.83 Mbps, UL: 0.60 Mbps. On average my connection stats without VPN are: ping: 14, DL: 6 Mbps, UL: 1.3 Mbps Am I just being paranoid for wanting to hide my real IP address when playing online games on a console, or is there a real concern with vengeful players finding out my IP address? I don’t know how another player would be able to get that info, but I have heard stories of players initiating denial of service (DOS) attacks and such on other players. Are there any tricks or tips that you might be able to share that would improve my overall gaming experience over VPN? Hourly, the VPN connection re-authorizes, or whatever it is called. I have the router set to only all connections through the VPN, to prevent IP leakage. Would this cause lag spikes and/or loss of connection to the game host server? What would be the best airvpn server for me to use for Call of Duty or other first person shooter games? I live in southeast Alabama and I don’t have any idea where the game host servers are located for Call of Duty. I have tried a couple different servers and the Kuma server seems to provide a fast and stable connection. However, I still experience lag most of the time.Thanks!
