    I think it has to do with how often the server updates it self. I could be wrong though.

    During each tick, the server processes incoming user commands, runs a physical simulation step, checks the game rules, and updates all object states. After simulating a tick, the server decides if any client needs a world update and takes a snapshot of the current world state if necessary. A higher tickrate increases the simulation precision, but also requires more CPU power and available bandwidth on both server and client.
    Google is your friend, don't ask here if you can simply google it.

    Press F10 and it'll tell you. jk. Tick rate means how many times per second the server updates your client... or something like that.

    Posted by Falcon Google is your friend, don't ask here if you can simply google it.
    So why are you here? The whole point of this thread is to get an answer with a personal response. If the solution to everything was google, this site wouldnt exist.

    Hmm, I didn't know what tickrate meant until this. And Falcon, yes, Google is a good way to find out things, but you can ask at sites where you might get a better answer. Oh and Quicksilver, you're right. And the word boogie is used by me, not only by song guys.
