Static vs Dynamic WAN IP - Gaming Performance/Differences

Hi so,

 

 

When I was jsut on a normal dynamic IP with plusnet certain games wouldn't connect to servers (dedis, other peoples connections) but as soon as i change to a static ip from plusnet it instantly connects. 

 

Can anyone tell me the differences between the 2 are, obviously apart from one of them being static. Is a static IP less strict? Different gateways, DNS?

 

I also had this issue with BT, but they dont have an option for a static IP, plusnet static IP seems to revolve all issues connecting to servers/dedis. thanks
