For the past couple of years I have had very different results vs my 2 different setups....and I am not sure why.
Setup 1: Los Angeles, California:
Hard Wired network connection about 400mbps.
27 inch 4k ASUS gaming monitor.
I have been around 80-40 in online games (events, BR, RS) with around a 2.40 average.
Best BR/Event streak was about 7 games.
It is always very difficult to catch up to high fastballs or react quick enough to the breaking stuff most of the time.
Setup 2: Atlanta, GA:
Wireless connection around 40 mbps..
24 inch 1080p ASUS gaming monitor.
I have been around 100-20 in online BR/Events/RS games with over a. 320 average.
My best streak was 11 games in events and went around 19-2 in a previous Event run. My best BR run was 12-1 with 11 straight wins.
In this setting, I usually crush high fastballs and am even usually too early....It seems like I can wait a bit longer on a pitch, and react to breaking stuff better.
So, there is no doubt that my ATL online gaming experience is substantially better, over a 2 year sample size.
My possible guess why includes either the monitor or geographic location? The competition seems similar, I think, but I do so much better in ATL. The ATL network connection is not quite as good as the LA one, so that is weird.
So I am thinking that the bigger 4k monitor is worse for online RS somehow? (I keep that setting on fastest mode, not the high graphic 4k setting, so that cannot be it).
Both monitors are basically using the exact same game mode settings.
Does anyone have an idea why my ATL online experience is better? Could the 24" monitor be that better for online gaming over the 27"? It's a noticeable difference, and it seems to me that my LA setup would be better, but it's not.
