Just out of curiosity, why is it absolutely imperative that you use a VPN?

Really?? Honestly ever since the new map I've been having lower ping and higher fps. Doubt the vpn would do much either.

You probably live close to new server 

For me its constantly freezing and teleporting and not playable it might be better if i could route my uploads to get to the server and back faster

You don’t need VPN on all the time, turn it off and see if that makes a difference.

No, turning on a vpn will not help with getting a lower ping. You have a higher chance of dcing and lagging with the vpn enabled from my experience with using one.
