I noticed this on only minecraft , I know its not my internet , I can easily surf the web , play browser games , quickly load youtube videos in 1080p no problem everything else is perfectly fine but when I go to my server list all my servers say over 250ms when i would normaly get around 50 or 60 ms
not only that but its also extremely laggy . lag spikes from 5 to 10 seconds makes it almost impossible to enjoy any games , I already reinstalled minecraft and scanned for any virus on my computer . It was working fine yesterday then all of a sudden it started getting really laggy i though i just might be having internet issues so I tryed again the next day (today) and its still really laggy can anyone help me ?
I doubt it's your internet for the lag part. It may just be your computer. This mod will solve the lag problem... but as for the connectivity problem.. it may be your internet modem. Since you can surf the internet fine, I'm not exactly sure as to what would cause the internet issue for Minecraft.
I had the same issue lag-wise, and I asked around and found OptiFine.
It basically reduces lag and raises your FPS, as long as you turn off particles that you can find when you download OptiFine, and this mod is accepted in mostly all MP servers.
