for us brits playing with 80-100 ping is horrible, simply because we are used to playing with 15-30 ping. It seriously affects gameplay when you are used to playing with an extremely low ping

I find that pings under 120 play absolutely fine, however under 80 is required to get yourself playing properly Razz If you find it difficult to play on servers with 60-80 ping, then you should not be playing on servers with 15-30 ping, seeing as you need to train yourself to play against this disadvantage. Over 45 ping and you have unlagged code ffs, it shouldn't get any worse. Wink

What switcher said. 150 to Oblacek is rarely a problem, although the 170-200 to L@P can be horrible if some prick's gone and added little ridges and crevices to the flooring. The rockets tend to take a pretty noticeable hit after about 140, and you're more likely to dispatch yourself against an errant pillar than your opponent.

I don't see how it could ever be a bad thing for someone to want to host servers... I'd rather have too many than too few....

well go back to my first post in this thread. in theory it's all good but servers seem to be seen as ZD's biggest blinging status symbol. ie, it's not what you put on them but how many you have.

so yeah Beast it'd be nice to look forward to something like a US L@P going up but we all know by now how unlikely that is to happen.
i'm not gonna do a count-up of all the DW5s and ZDCTFs out there at this time. don't have to to tell you it's pretty fucking ridiculous.
the problem is you have like 10 ZDCTFs to one of every other WAD of the same gametype. now even if more players showed the initiative to join some server other than what's currently active then how are the other WADs supposed to compete with 4 pages of ZDCTF on the masterlist? ditto for DW5M1, etc.

and as many folks have agreed with how spoiled players are, then you really do not need to have identical servers in every single state of the US just for some perceived 5ms ping advantage.

so add more servers, just do it for the community and not for egos.

It's not the quantity that counts, but the quality. So what's wrong with having more quality servers? Out of all the server hosts out there, people only ever play on a select few (3 tops in the USA). I'll let you in on a little secret: The way servers are run makes a huge difference Wink. The low-quality servers are those where you get banned for scoring or celebrating your prowess. WAD and game mode diversity also helps of course.

Whiteknight has succeeded in having a decent variety on Platinum. Say, Primey, did you ever switch to FreeBSD?

BTW, people are so spoiled. 10-15 ping?...What are you, Czech? Laughing
