Gameplay Issues with Among Us
I have played the game on PC and Android device both, during my testing I haven’t witnessed any issue with the game on the smartphone, but on PC there’s a bit of server problem. As per my experience, I have witnessed very high ping and in most of the gameplay, the servers were not that supportive. Most of the time I was returning the main menu at the starting of the game.
This might be because of too many users playing the same game. Initially, I thought that it’s my bad internet connection so I tried different internet connection to play the game, however, didn’t see any difference.
