BlackShot uses Peer to Peer Connection System (Also known as P2P). Everyone in the game is connected to a Game Host (See below), which will host the game. If the host is having connection problems, the other players that is in the game will suffer lag or disconnection. This also means that Mio is not 100% the cause of disconnections in-game.Types of Servers - All you need to know about it
Centralized Server Connection System means everyone connects to the server and this minimize the chances of getting disconnected. The servers will also require a lot of money and resources to keep it working.

Sometimes there will be problems with the Servers like e.g. Server Crash, Server Lag (All lag is caused by the Server, not the host) e.t.c. Mostly players will get disconnected or lag when playing the game. Just a side note on what I observed. Frequently after Server Crashes, players would spam the chat. Even thought this will not cause another Server Crash, but it would be irritating. Also note that all spammers will be dealt with by the GMs for Misbehavior - Spamming the Chat and causing a nuisance to the BlackShot Community (I will not explain more of it as you will get tired )
Q: Why I keep get disconnected from the Server?BlackShot Servers - FAQ
A: It might be due to Server Problems, High Login Rate (If there are many players online at that time, the Server might crash as it cannot hold too many players at one time) , Game Host if you get disconnected from a game or your Connection. If your connection is weak, you will not be able to connect to the Game Host and eventually disconnect from the Game and Server. If you frequently get Server Disconnections, call up with your Internet Service Provider to conduct a check on your connection or create a new thread in the Technical Support Channel and an appropriate GM/ Tech Staff will address your problem if stated clearly

Q: What is the difference between P2P Connection System and Centralized Server Connection System?
A: P2P Connection is cheaper to maintain but there will be more lag and disconnections as compared to Centralized Server Connection. Centralized Server Connection means less lag and disconnections, but it is more expensive to create and maintain
Q: Why can't BlackShot use Centralized Server Connection System but instead used P2P Connection System?
A: As mentioned above, Centralized Server Connection System will require a lot of money to maintain. Most companies that have games that have a Centralized Server mostly generate a lot of money a year
Room Host or Room Master, can be identified in-game with the Star beside the Player's Status/ Ping Information. They do not host the game or they are the ones that are responsible for the lag or disconnection, they are just the creator of the room.Room Host
