What is Rubber Banding and High Latency?
Rubber Banding means you go back to the place where you came from. It is like someone just tied you to one end of a rubber band and once you make a move you come back to the same exact spot.
Imagine this; you just got started with Diablo 4, moving the mouse and character around and after some time you end up at the same spot without progressing.
Yes, this is Rubber Banding – the greatest enemy of a gamer. The High Latecy is sometimes followed along with the Rubber Banding. Actually, Rubber Banding is caused by high latency, when the internet isn’t working well and the progression isn’t caught up.
Latency is a measure of time and how much data is being progressed in that specific frame. When latency increases, the data progressed in a specific time increases, causing the game to malfunction because your data isn’t recorded.
This in return causes Rubber Banding. So both of them are parallel to each other.
