RANT : Connection Quality

Recommended Posts

Damn stupid mofo thing.

 

My broadband is 2mbps down, 0.5 up with a nice stable ping. Everything works, games are fast providing people are local(ish) and the world is a happy place.

 

What hacks me off is randomly I get everything from 'very bad' to 'very good' with no logic at all. This also hacks others off as they assume I'm going to be a lagger. Then you get a game where everyone has a 'very good' connection and it lags like a water pipe in the artic.

 

So the question is, what the 'f' does it do other than generate a random outcome to pyass me off. It certainly has nothing to do with connection quality.

With such a slow connection it could very well jump from very bad to very good just by opening a website

 

Make sure you close all programs that access the internet if you like to avoid the very bad message :)

 

All the connection test does is a ping test, if your ping is unstable then it would show very bad as result

TBH I've tried everything. The main issue is that people kick you for having a 'very bad' connection when the game then work fine at top speed.

 

I guess I'll just have to endure it :(

The ping test tests your connection to Google, if I remember correctly.

 

It would be more logical if it tried to contact the cncnet server, or something...

Kicked from 3 games for having a 'bad conn'... Maybe I should just roll the dice a few more times to get a very good one.
