This is my first time posting on this forum! :)
I have an odd problem. I play a few games on Shadow, but my main game is Apex Legends (the others are also FPS games with the same problem). My issue is major input lag. When I first launch the game, for 30-45 seconds, no input lag, but after that, when I move my mouse, about 400ms after, the cross hair moves. The weird part is that if I tab out of the game (it’s still running) and reopen it, the lag goes away for another 30-45 seconds. Happens every time to all the games I tried (R6, Fortnite, GTA V even an aim trainer I found on Steam).
It has started since I first got shadow. I’m told that it’s the influx of people overloading their servers, but I’m hoping there’s another explanation/fix.
To make this more interesting, I also used GeforceNow. ZERO issues. No input lag or any problems.
On my end, I’m connected via Ethernet; 700-1000mb/s up and down. I have a laptop with intel core i7 and integrated graphics
If anyone can help me, that would be amazing!

Are you using IPv4 or IPv6 connection?
GeforceNow and other services support both, while Shadow still after years doesn’t support IPv6.
I’m pretty sure I’m using an IPv4 connection
I hope that helps, good luck.
I will try all of this, thank you!
