If your computer meets or exceeds the minimum requirements to run the game, it is your connection not the computer.

Satellite ISP has high latency (ping) by it's nature and many games do not work well with that. Once you use all of your data allowance for the month, your overall connection speed is slowed and, games that are not installed on your computer may not load at all.

What Data Plan do you have with Exede?  If you are over your priority data and have the Liberty Plan you will probably not be able to use your online games between 5:00 PM and 2:00 AM,  but they should likely work outside of those hours.

If you are on one of their classic plans and are out of Priority Data, then you should be able to use those games between 12:00 AM and 5:00 AM, however they will likely not work outside of those hours.

If you still have Priority Data and are having these issues, then either the game servers have updated or changed something or you are experiencing problems with your service,

If you can let us know what plan you are on and if you still have Priority Data left, that will go a long way towards providing an explanation as to what is occurring.
