    Lag is just when the internet (or internet connection gets slow). It can happen for a number of reasons. One of these is through a DDoS attack. This is when the group/person sends data to your computer asking for a reply. This is done either from an extremely fast connection (which therefore overloads your slower one), or it is done from multiple connections (i.e. lots of computers on different connections directed at your one computer).

    Lag is the term used to describe the connection (or the amount of time it takes for packets to arrive at your computer) state. If it's lagging, then the "packets*" take longer to arrive.


    *Packets are simply bundles of data that are transferred from server > computer and back again.
