    The game is peer to peer, so the lag may not be your fault. I find having just one player with a red connection light (ping over 200ms) will significantly effect the response of the game. Also, turn off all the graphics choices, even the ones under advanced. Just putting the slider to the minimums won't turn off all graphic effects.

    You should not lag in Multiplayer, at all. You have some setting or something on that lags you.

    1. Always use Dx 11. NEVER 12!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    2. Check Civ logs so civ isnt using windows GPU software driver. INSTEAD of your GPU! This is not a rare problem.

    When you enter the Multiplayer menu, and create your own MP game. Does it lag in that lobby?
