Night/Day

Post by leonakeve1 » 17 Oct 2019, 04:49

Why my gaming experience in CSGO is better at night and worse at day? i feel like even the fps are lower at day, already tried electricity solutions( grounding my house and my outlets driving freaking rods and even Calling 2 Electrician that did the same job (ground the main panel) and its the same. This does change something in the mouse feel, but the wrong feeling of the game its still there, why would my game run better at night? its not temp problem i have liquid cooling.

Hey man, I've experienced something similar in the past and can tell you it's more likely due to your biology than any physical changes w/r/t your hardware. Some people "feel it" more during the day; some people "feel it" more at night. My case improved a lot after I went to my doctor about it. Turns out I have a very manageable sleep disorder. Based on my experience, I'd recommend you set up an appointment to talk about it with a doctor before spending any more time/money on electricians :)

It's definitely you and not the hardware changing properties. You probably have more focus when it's night time and there is less ambient light around the monitor.

Unless the temperature in your room changes enough to cause throttling, I don't see it having an impact.

I've felt this as well. Not only in csgo but most fps games.I think it's because the internet is more stable during the night. Or maybe its because Im more focused?

Network lag can be time dependent, due to network load. Though that shouldn't change how the mouse behaves.

its your internet connection if youre willing to pay (video games in general + discord + spotify is only like 15 mbps) you can get a dedicated internet access line at 30 mbps symmetric for like 300/month overkill ik but the only other solution is to move and pray you have no issues at the new location it is a network configuration related to load and usage when youre game feels better it is because network usage in your area/city is lower (shit infrastructure that cant handle the usage without bs bandaid fix configurations that make gaming a hellish experience) you can switch isps if you have another option, if youre on dsl then likely the other isp is just leasing the main isps lines
