Hello. I play from New Zealand, and my average ping is usually 240 to 270.
I see a lot of VPN usage in games that I play; it seems to be a new fad currently. Particularly from OCE players in Pubg, and WoW.
Can I use VPN for guild wars 2, 1)without being at risk of ban or punishment from a net, and 2) to effectively reduce my latency? VPN costs a few dollars a month which I wouldn't mind paying as long as it shaves off a chunk of ping.
I play on Sea of Sorrows server.
Any help or advice would be appreciated, particularly from fellow OCE players who have experimented with this. As stated above my 2 concerns are effectiveness of the VPN, and potentially being banned or something.
Thanks in advance.
