Lost count of how many times I died due to lag because of my high latency (on fibre no less too) because of how far I am from their West Coast servers.
That's not the answer either since producers tend to cheap out by using an off-the-shelf p2p protocol which is then flagged and throttled by ISPs unless producers also offer the chance to easily opt out of being the host.
