News Comments > Battlefield 4 Rubber Banding Fixes and Server Upgrades Planned
9. Re: Battlefield 4 Rubber Banding Fixes and Server Upgrades Planned Apr 2, 2014, 11:29 LittleMe
 
they are "unhappy with our server performance," as they promise to look into issues causing rubber-banding (players repeatedly snapping back to a previous position on the map due to Internet lag) issues in Battlefield 4,

Blue the rubber banding in this case isn't caused by 'internet lag' but instead by the server not keeping up with client position updates, thus the server performance issue DICE is trying to address. The server gets out-of-sync with the player's PC or console if, for example, the server's CPU is over utilized.

Yes people think it's Internet lag but it's not, it's often server lag. As a player, it can be hard to tell what is causing rubber banding (or lag).

Most online games, to hide Internet latency, allow the client to go ahead and move even if the server doesn't process the movement information due to insufficient resources. This introduces rubber banding as a possibility since the client and server can get out-of-sync. The server will then warp the player back to where it thinks he/she is. That's the rubber banding..

The myriad of DLC for this has stomped on my interest in the game.

Is Redwood doing the PR? /duck

So where are Robs and Esses these days? I remember Esses from IRC back in '96 in the qtest days. They both had so much enthusiasm for Quake and it was highly contagious. I guess Robs often had that cool+dazed look on his face. Blue sorry you didn't get to play in the little tourney! I didn't know you were there to... um... actually play.

At the QW launch party someone mentioned you were there but at the time I didn't even know about your site. I would have wanted to say hi. You and your site here are a big influence on my life and I want to thank you for that, very much. I'm having a broment here.

After seven years, exactly one person gets off the govít no-fly list.

I'm sure the list is correct, and everyone who is on there deserves to be on there. I'm surprised that one person got taken off. Besides, they don't HAVE to fly. There are plenty of other ways to travel. For example, by foot.

That's so right! Just wait for the 'No Breathe List' we have coming!

Of course you're anti-gun, you don't want the crime syndicates facing armed citizens.

+1. And without guns, the feeling of helplessness and demoralization is amplified while being subjected to the ever expanding criminal elite.

Just curious, but why do you rate it as overpriced and average?

Well I can try to speak for the overpriced part at least. There are much better PC games for a lot less. It's priced like a console game. New PC games of late seem to be selling best on Steam in the $30-$40 range. DayZ is a good example of that.

News Comments > The Elder Scrolls Online Next Week: Early Access Details
18. Re: The Elder Scrolls Online Next Week: Early Access Details Mar 26, 2014, 13:14 LittleMe
 
I like reading the positive comments on the game and I want to like it but the beta didn't inspire me. I'll watch gameplay vids to see if it's better. The world felt too MMOish to me. Specifically the world felt like generic window dressings designed to run on a low-end machine. Now I understand it's expensive to create a dense and immersive world but I think that's what I want. Also the hordes of other players in the game subtracted from the experience because they were just annoying. I hope I'm wrong about the game and after several patches they've made a kick ass mmo.

It might be good news in disguise. If it were treated as a currency, the Secret Servce might effectively shut it down in this country. I don't know the specifics of their authority to do so but I know they do shut down competing currencies to the Dollar, by showing up with as many gun-toting thugs as possible.

I'm surprised these currencies aren't illegal already considering how desperate the authorities are to maintain the house of cards that are Dollars (through all sort of financial manipulation). There's hope for financial freedom.

Honestly I still don't think that that poll is anything more than a joke. I mean saying that a game company with, at worst, a capitalistic mentality is worse than banks screwing people over out of their homes, large-scale companies foregoing safety and dumping millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf, and then the multitude of other companies out there that are actually causing physical harm on people is rather stupid.

This. It's more a statement of ignorance as to where are the important issues. The socialist central banks are vastly worse.

Nice. Barely pay any taxes at all and bilk the taxpayers for several hundred thousand a year more.

Right this is Microsoft's fault, but not the fault of an ultra-paranoid police state that goes far and beyond Microsoft?

Cutter wrote on Mar 22, 2014, 17:32:
Why doesn't the gubment just say 'Comply or we revoke your corporate charter?' Oh right, for the same reason they let them get away paying virtually no tax. Silly me.

The answer is simple. They want a cooperative corporate partner in their criminal surveillance state. Since the gubment doesn't earn the money they spend, they don't care if they spend that money as long as it helps them toward their ends.

Yeah I was upset about no jumping too. First started with Pac-Man and not being able to jump over fucking Inky and his multi-raced brethren. Wasn't quite so bad with Ms. Pac man since everyone knows women can't jump.

No problem there are other ways to get games that are no longer for sale. It's a fun SP game and the campaign felt like it went on and on...

The game doesn't really start until you are 60 and have all your abilities, in my opinion.(or 70 in the expansion) At that point, currently, the wizard starts to really pull away from the other classes.

Thanks good to know this info. I guess wizard will be my next char.

Except for that time they were found guilty of violating net-neutrality by the FCC.

The FCC has a lot to gain with net neutrality regulations because they are the ones who'd enforce it. They are going to paint the Internet as something that needs their regulatory authority. That's a conflict of interest, so take their words with skepticism.

I agree it's shitty, but the duopoly creates this problem. There's a lack of competition in wired Internet service. Net Neutrality as it is being advocated won't solve the problem. An open competitive market that strives to serve the consumer will. Further legislation and regulation could make the problem worse.

Bring back UT99 with Threewave CTF and Hook and it'd effing rock!

Threewave! It's sad how the grapple was ignored by developers. It was a fantastic game mechanic that rewarded skill and it was fun.

I'd be happy with an improved UT3 as long as they got rid of Titan mode win-button. The mini free expansion (black edition) they did consoleized UT3 far too much.

Devil's advocate but seeing that TOR is successful enough to get an expansion and rustling so many jimmies here is pretty entertaining.

This. It's a fun casual mmo. I like the radio voiceovers in it. Not so much the cutscenes.
