High ping is something that players always hate when playing online games. This is also very true in online competitive fighting games like MultiVersus, where even a split-second can determine who wins and loses.

Player First Games, developer of the popular MultiVersus fighting game, knows this and so the company begins fixing it in the recent update.

In the Season 2 Patch, Multi-Path Traffic Acceleration has been implemented. This is a feature that optimizes the routing of your connection to the game’s data center, which may result in improved ping. It works similarly to third-party services like WTFast and Exitlag, only this requires no other software. Player First Games has put some network traffic optimizations in place that might further reduce lag as well.

Aside from improving network connectivity, the Season 2 Update also brought some map and balancing changes.

The no-roof version of Scooby’s Mansion has the size of its blastbox increased by 10%. Furthermore, the size of the Ringouts is increased slightly because, according to the dev team, they were coming “a bit too fast.”

For character changes, Batman’s Aerial Down Special is nerfed in that it can no longer combo back into itself, thus preventing the move to be chained indefinitely. Additionally, Finn’s Weight is reduced to 49, while the block buff provided by his Armored Buns move is no longer consumed by Light Projectile attacks.
