    I can't play any game in shotbow without vpn or proxy because of my trash ping(usually 600+ and sometimes get disconnected immediately ) , but I like this game and I'm a regular player of shotbow minez . What can I do ? Help !

    Using a VPN won't affect your ping. Your internet is still being routed through your initial IP. If anything, it may make it worse.

    Thanks for replying, but nevertheless I beg to differ .
    The fact is that when I use VPN my ping is often 170ms, but without VPN I has 200ms+ and it always hits 300ms or even higher .
    Imagine living somewhere (not Chinese Mainland), having a better ping and saying VPN has no effect on ping .
    Many Chinese players are facing this issue . Hope staff can take action to help .

    They won't let you because hackers use them to avoid being banned by IP.

    Maybe it could be a option for premium players though.

    After I used it, it was reduced from 800ms to 250ms, but I was not banned either:stuck_out_tongue:

    Have you tried connecting with jp.shotbow.net rather than play.shotbow.net? Perhaps that might help, let us know.
