That is lag. When the ball approaches the other side, it needs to recieve data from the opponent in order to tell the game what is happening and which angle and speed the ball is going. Sometimes slow connections cause signal losses.

Yep, unfortunately because things happen so quickly in RBT it's even more sensitive to the reliability of your connection than even some of the most demanding first person shooter games.
