How bad is minecraft with slow Internet?

#1 Posted by SexyToad (2760 posts) -

I have pretty slow Internet. That's why I don't play online games much. But is minecraft different? If I play how would it feel like? I can't test it out right now. So I ask you duders. My ping average around 800-1000ms.

thats some bad ping....... to be honest i have no clue it might run okay if you had nothing else accessing the internet.

Multiplayer Minecraft can be squirly even with good internet. Give it a shot, but don't expect much.

It depends, I guess. If you were doing creative or on a build server, it might be alright. But on a PVP server, it would be terrible.

Man an entire second of latency? Are you on Mars?

That's not slow.  It's glacial.

If you can avoid monsters, you should be fine. That seems to be the only *real* problem with bad internet in my experience.

Don't be silly. His ISP is on Mars, duh.

Also, yeah, that's pretty bad. Don't expect much. Better yet, don't even try it...

Just tried it. Pretty terrible, anyone know how much data online gaming use? To see if I could possibly get Internet provided by a cellphone company, seeing how my phones work great where I live. But it's to my understanding the max gb you can get from a cellphone company is 5.
