Screen resolution and Gameplay



  • Does it have an influence over how much you can see? Does a low screen resolution gives you a disadvantage over your opponents?

    Does screen resolution has an influence over game play or is it just eyecandy?



  • Typically a wider aspect ratio (like for a widescreen monitor) will give you a wider fielder of view (you have more peripheral vision). If the aspect ratios are the same, a higher resolution will just look more clear, but otherwise no real advantage. A higher resolution may tax your computer more and slow down your frame rates causing worse performance or degraded gameplay.

    Yeah so basically how does it work in this game? Does a higher resolution gives you a wider field of view?



  • No, just the ratio does (16:9,4:3) if i’m not mistaking

    So it doesn’t influence how well you play?
