How to improve your ping in Fortnite
The best ping in Fortnite is crucial for smooth and responsive gameplay. Following Epic Games’ new announcement that NA West and NA East will be merged into NA Central, there will be more players struggling with their ping. Unoptimized internet connection settings can result in poorer input lag, ping, and latency. The first thing you need to make sure is that you have a reliable Ethernet connection. Wi-Fi can be good too, but it’s more inconsistent and not as reliable.
