The wifi where I live is absolutely shocking, so for the past few months I’ve been using my phone as a tethering source. It works perfectly in every game, getting less than 100 ping on average in all multiplayer games (LOL, COD, etc.). However, in Borderlands 2 and Battleborn I get less than 1 fps, which is completely unrelated to the connection speed (or so one would think…) - it is impossible for me to even navigate the menu. One thing I tried was to use a VPN, which seemed to solve the issue, however it does slow down the network speed, as well as having a few other problems (expensive, keeps dropping out randomly etc.). I’m getting the exact same issue with Borderlands 2, which is also a gearbox game, however when I disconnect my phone from my pc I get 100+ fps. How can I fix this issue permanently? I can’t even play the bloody game, and I’m really itching for a refund as it is - I feel as if I should have waited 2 days for the upcoming Overwatch game instead.
TLDR: Using phone tethering, getting less than 1fps on Battleborn, using a VPN fixes it to 60fps+ but that is not an option. Solutions?
