Simulates a local area network thus allowing people from all over the world to play games without an online component in multiplayer mode. Embeds social features such as friend lists, chats or emojis and works with a wide variety of games.
Garena Plus is an online gaming platform which supports multiple games. It works by simulating a Local Area Network where people from all around the world can chat and play together. It is the enhanced version of the Garena client, being much more stable and having more functions. Also users logging through Garena Plus have more advantages.
Its design is simple and very effective. It is divided in two parts : a messenger and the actual games platform. Through the messenger you chat with friends, clan members and you can also find friends with the use of Facebook. The games platform is the part where you choose which game you want to play. After that you will enter a lobby where you will have to select an area. Selecting the area closest to you is important because there will be less lag. After that you can choose any room you want. I liked the fact that the room capacity is higher for Garena plus users.
I have used Garena Plus for quite some time now and I was pleased with its performance. It rarely lags, although sometimes it does very badly. It supports voice chat with people from the buddy list. This is useful because you can organize better while playing together. Right now it shows somewhere around 600.000 users online, so the player base is absolutely huge. It only takes up around 50 MB of RAM so the performance of games won't decrease while using it.
