There are many ways in which a VPN can improve your life and if you are a passionate online gamer, CyberGhost can help your gameplay more than you had probably imagined. Here are some examples – 9 of them, to be more precise:

  1. If you enjoy online gaming, then you are probably familiar with DDoS attacks (short for “Distributed Denial of Service”). In plain words, what these attacks do is enable other users to remove you from a server and make the game inaccessible to you. With CyberGhost VPN, however, your real IP will be hidden and no one will be able to discover your real one so as to target you with a DDoS attack, which will now be attacking our DDoS-protected servers.
  1. When playing online, Internet speed can be a real advantage. If you connect to CyberGhost VPN while enjoying your favorite online game such as DOTA, LOL, CS:Go or many others, you may be able to lower your ping rate by connecting to the CyberGhost server closest to the gaming server. Thus your Internet speed and gaming experience will visibly improve.
  1. As a gamer, you will probably have to make an online payment at a certain point, in order to purchase a new game or a token. This can make you prone to certain risks, such as cyberfraud. By forcing HTTPS, CyberGhost will enable you to place safe online payments.

  1. The accounts that you create on gaming platforms such as Steam, Battle.net, Origin or many others can expose you to identity theft attempts. CyberGhost VPN will hide your IP and make it impossible for others to steal your real one. Please note, however, that if your account has been broken into or if someone has your password, they can still access your personal details, but your real IP will still be private thanks to Cyberghost.

  1. Even when you’re traveling, you will still have to connect to your favorite game and take care of some game-related aspects. Due to data costs, you might have to access public WiFis, which is never recommended, since you thus become very vulnerable to hacks. CyberGhost VPN will automatically protect your WiFi connection by encrypting all your internet traffic with the 256-bit AES algorithm.

  1. If you’re an avid gamer, then you might be familiar with certain forums or websites where you can get in touch with other aficionados and get useful advice. However, here you are also vulnerable to so-called “trolls”. If you use CyberGhost VPN, your IP will be hidden and online harassers will never be able to track you. Thus, you will be able to get rid of their unwanted attention a lot easier.
  1. Another aspect familiar to connoisseurs is that some games are known to work better or are only available if you connect from a certain country. CyberGhost VPN has 690 servers across the world and you can pick a favorite to improve your gaming experience.
  1. Speaking of which, some games are known only to launch in certain locations. With CyberGhost VPN, you can forget about geo-restrictions and get a first-hand experience of games that are only released in Asia or the United States.

  • Cyberghost doesn’t work with any of the games from wargaming.net. I contacted cyberghost support as I have their premium account and here’s what they replied with.

    Hello Ghostie,

    thank you for your reply.

    We really haven’t tested any online game.

    Please use the steps we provided and let us know if it works. If not, send us screenshots of your steps and results, also with the error message.

    Best regards

    Freundliche Grüsse

    • Hello! Yes, that is correct. We cannot test every game out there. That being said, we also have no limitations when it comes to online games. The limitation can only come from the game producers. We would recommend contacting them and checking if they block vpn connections, if the game needs a specific port and so on. If they don’t specifically block VPN’s, they should be able to help you out. Thanks for your message!
