Some individuals may have a competitive advantage in Fortnite due to their ability to perceive action at a higher frame rate, according to science.

Can We Game at Different Speeds? New Study Suggests Temporal Resolution May Determine Our Perception of the FPS Event Horizon

A recent study published by the Guardian has shed new light on the FPS event horizon, suggesting that people may perceive life at different frame rates. This could explain why some individuals excel at fast-paced games while others struggle. The concept of ‘temporal resolution’ refers to how quickly our brains process visual information, and individuals with high temporal resolution can react faster to stimuli than those with lower temporal resolution.

A test conducted on a group of 18-35 year olds revealed significant variation in how they could detect the flickering of a light, with some participants seeing it at speeds over 60 flashes per second while others could only detect it at 35 flashes per second. It is important to note that human biology plays a role in perception, as each person’s perception is influenced by factors such as age and physical activity. Studies have shown that temporal resolution declines as individuals get older or after intense exercise.

Knowing your own temporal resolution score could potentially impact your gaming experience, as individuals with lower scores may not benefit from investing in high refresh rate monitors. In a hypothetical scenario suggested by a podcast colleague, players seeking to compete professionally in esports may even be required to provide proof of their temporal resolution in order to qualify. Understanding how individuals perceive visual information at different speeds could revolutionize how we approach gaming and competitive esports in the future.
