    I feel the need to clear up this misconception that VPN's somehow boost ping or improve lag when playing AL.

    When information flows around the internet, your ping is determined by the amount of time it takes for the information from your device to reach the nearest STS server (Amazon-Linux Servers I believe). If my understanding of sts servers are correct you can find the server location nearest to you by just googling the location of the amazon linux servers around the world. When you normally play AL, information is sent directly from your device directly to the server and resultingly how good your ping is, is determined based on how close you are geographicaly to a server.

    Using a VPN severs this direct connection and sends your information to the VPN servers before sending your information to the STS servers, as opposed to directly sending to sts. Thus, your information is traveling around the internet longer then as opposed to if you just sent your information directly to STS servers which resultingly INCREASES your ping. While it is possible in some cases your ping will remain unchanged (when a VPN server is essentially next to or on an STS server), using a VPN will only in extremely rare cases help your ping. Virtual Private Networks were initially designed to bypass firewalls. By sending your data through a different country's server you can get around those firewalls.

    I've tried to break down what I know in the simplest way possible. :/

    The only real reason to use a VPN in AL would be if you are bypassing a firewall or platinum farming....
