Blue Protocol has become an instant sensation in Japan since its release on June 20, 2023. Of course, it was preceded by a widely acknowledged Blue Protocol beta version, where you could check out the character creation model and the overall gaming experience of this new title.
Since then, the game has been released exclusively to Japanese audiences, with plans to come to the Western markets in 2024. Currently, people worldwide are swarming the servers hoping to find out the best online gaming experience they can have. But, unfortunately, it’s not all beds of roses, and some thorns are on their way. Specifically – lags, dropped packets, and latency issues.
In this article, we will go over all the elements that can cause gaming performance to drop down, how to reduce lag in Blue Protocol, and we may even have some windows opened for you to sneak into the Japanese servers from, well, a secured location, let’s just say. So, without further ado, let’s dive in!
What Is Blue Protocol?
Blue Protocol is the latest Capcom online action RPG with a beautifully anime-stylized world, incredible character creation, and a story on par with some of the best Japanese plots from recent years.
The game heavily focuses on the anime aspect, as there is a lot of dialogue and cut scenes. It’s essentially a modern novel in the form of a video game. The basic concept is simple – you travel around many different worlds, meet new friends, and try to find out the truth about who you truly are. Your destiny awaits you, and so does the fate of planet Regnas. Interested? Well, we are, for sure!
The game has five classes available, each with different skills and customization options: Blade Warden, Twin Striker, Keen Strider, Spell Weaver, and Foe Breaker. Regarding the gameplay aspect, it follows the old-and-gold MMO hack-and-slash kind of combat, with some Dark Souls-inspired dodging system. Essentially, you need to move constantly, as the enemies will get to you pretty fast if you are not careful enough.
Do You Need VPN to Play Blue Protocol in Europe/America?
The main question still stands – do you need a VPN kind of service to play this game in Europe/Americas or anywhere else in the world apart from Japan? Well – no, but it’s complicated. The official standing of the BANDAI NAMCO is that anyone who tries to play this game with or without VPN services – will be banned.
It’s expressly against the Terms of Service for the game. That will also include all the tries to go around it, creating multiple accounts or using VPN services for that reason. The reasoning is that the Japanese servers will be unable to keep up with so many login requests. During the game's launch, there were so many requests that the servers needed to be shut down to process them. To combat that problem, developers decided to close the game for Japan and make the global release in 2024.
Of course, you can still try to create an account with a VPN service and hope that the “security” will not catch you, but you will do it at your own risk. At the time of writing this article, the game is restricted to the Japanese region, and anyone who tries to install it or plays it outside of Japan will have to worry about the potential consequences.
How to Fix Blue Protocol Lag?
So, now that we know more about the title, let’s go over some key issues regarding Blue Protocol lags that you may have experienced while playing the game in Japan. As usual, we recommend getting our NoPing subscription as the best solution for any network-related issues you may encounter with your gaming experience (more on that – later in the article). Still, there are some additional homemade solutions to the most common problems.
Game lags usually prevent you from enjoying the smooth performance of the game, lower the Frames-Per-Second ratio, and negatively influence the gameplay. It’s the most annoying in massively multiplayer online games, like Blue Protocol, where you can just lose control of your character, even for a second, and die a miserable death. Here are some of the most common issues to look out for when it comes to lagging.
One of the most common reasons for lags is the internet connection. Whether it’s unstable or slow, it can cause some damage to the overall performance. Here are some solutions you can try:
Disconnect your router from the power source, wait 60 seconds, and plug it in.
Disconnect the devices connected to your network to create a more stable connection.
Try switching channels of your Wi-Fi network to less crowded ones.
Contact your Internet service provider to ask about potential clogging.
Avoid internet rush hours if possible.
Connect the router to your device via an Ethernet cable rather than Wi-Fi.
Clean up your DNS cache by typing this into the Command Prompt:
netsh winsock reset
Sometimes it’s not about the internet but your hardware. Check out your Nvidia Control Panel or your AMD Ryzen settings to see if you can run this game. Here are the minimum requirements to run Blue Protocol:
OS: Windows 10（64-bit）
CPU: Intel Core_i3-4340.
Memory: 8GB RAM.
Graphics Card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX660（2GB）/ AMD Radeon R7 370（2GB）
HDD/SSD capacity: HDD 40GB.
Display monitor resolution: 1280 x 720.
DirectX: DirectX 11 or 12.
Game Server Problems
Additionally, there can be some issues with the game servers, so check out the developer's/game's social media to see if everything is running correctly.
Sometimes the issue can be with the firewall protection you have on your computer. Malware can be problematic when it comes to game performance. On the other hand, you should always check if the firewall is not limiting your game performance. If necessary, exempt it from your firewall protection.
