I was having a meet up with my friends, and one of them kept on saying that they were lagging, and left the game, but I'm not convinced because they literally used that excuse to play bedwars on hypixel, which is probably even more lag-prone. How do I check the connection of someone in minecraft, if it is good or not?

    Well I am not good in internals of minecraft, but on pressing tab usually if the connection strength is low, it is likely that they are lagging. I think however the only reliable way is for your friends to screen record their lag and send it to you.

    I believe the badlion client does have a way to see another player's ping. Although I have not done any research on it or have tested it out myself. May 18, 2021 at 16:09

Ask for their ping, and if it is over 100ms then they are most likely lagging, but anything close to that is also laggy.

  • I'd say that over 100ms is pretty normal on Hypixel, and it's totally playable. I wouldn't consider that lagging, it's just not the best. Feb 13, 2022 at 10:29
