Introducing Haste BADGES, a new feature Haste has added to your gaming arsenal!
Haste Badges are a way to see how your network performed in your most recent game session. When your Overwatch or League of Legends game ends, a notification slides out from the right side of the screen with the Badges you won for having low ping, low jitter and/or low packet loss. If you get all three, your connection was really rockin’!
What is ping, jitter, and packet loss?
Ping is the amount of time it takes to send a packet (piece of data) and receive a response, such as from your PC to a game server or vice-versa.
Jitter, sometimes called ping spikes, is the fluctuation of ping over time (standard deviation).
Packet loss is the percentage of packets that do not arrive at their destination within a certain amount of time.
For the best experience, all of these metrics should be as low as possible.
