The Performance Monitor

The Performance Monitor is a small circle that appears by default in the bottom right corner of the user interface. It displays information about the game's performance:

  • FPS: Frames per second. An indication of the performance of the graphical engine of the game. This is affected by computational power, memory capacity and the graphics card on the user's machine.
  • Last Ping: Displays the last ping time to the server in milliseconds. The Performance Monitor changes colors depending on this value:

Indicator color is based on Last Ping.
