Your contract specifically states that offering any ISP grade services without a specific business contract gets you insta canned. Unless it's an really old contract or a really really small ISP who doesn't care.

The difference is that you can only put so much technology in the nodes before you reach a physical limit. And I dunno what their calculations are, but imagine you have a 1 gbit line in a region with 50000 subscribers, and 500 use it to the max while 5000 use it 50%,and 10000 use it 25%. That congests a fiber based node easily, heck most actual country backbones are not handling more than 2000gbit/s and you expect a SINGLE node in your backyard to handle that load?

They oversell the bandwidth not by a tiny margin with 1gbit lines. The global infrastructure for that kind of speed even if it's only used by 1% of the US population does not exist.

The largest digital country in the EU (Germany) http://www.de-cix.net/about/statistics has only 2tbit/s load on the international backbone and a load max of 12tbit/s. You can saturate that with just 12000 1gbit lines that are used anywhere on the planet at full potential. Just think about that for a second.

20 people (in 1 area) using a gbit connection fully can already saturate an entire gateway node if it's underequipped.

10 TB per month? Jeez, what are these guys downloading? The entire Times-Warner catalog in hi def? You'd have to be spending $400 per month or hard drives just to store all that data.

The highest number was 77TB in one month. I'm completely against this bullshit "Well, we say unlimited but we really don't mind unlimited" crap that's going on, but 77TB is just fucking retarded. My entire company of 1200 people doesn't download 77TB a month, and we're on a 300Mbps pipe. (funny enough, we upload around 300TB a month, but that's because of the backups.)

It says nowhere in that article that it was download only... in fact it says USAGE meaning both up/down. Likely people running small scale ISP's or hosting services from their FIOS line, which I gotta admit is a kinda dickish move.

Overall I think the game is great. The 2nd to last patch screwed up people's frame rate. However I haven't really noticed probably because I got a beefy rig. Since release if the game they have released over 50 patches. Not quite Team Fortress 2 territory but commendable. I think they will address the frame rate issue that people are complaining about. Also I have dine the tutorials and they have been working fine for me.

Maybe addressing these issues should have been done before the free weekend, NS2 is never again gonna get this much attention for free. Anyhow, for me the Tutorial never proceeded past the "move into the blue shizzle to join marines"

Ps.: NWN is still nice to play even now.... and so is BG2. Although I wouldn't play BG2 without some "ease of use" mods anymore... like removing locked chests and traps, everything Identified, stackable stuff... more carry weight, etc.
Ahh we're spoiled now. Makes me wonder how PE or PS:N are going to fair in some peoples minds if they have those in them.

Heh yeah After 9 complete playthroughs, 3 heavily modded, there is not much allure to playing Native again, if I'd play BG2 it'd be for the combat and companion reasons.

I don't mind it being there on the first few playthroughs. and it remains to be seen whether PE is something that is worth playing through more than once.

By the way, I remove traps and locks because these are essentially just free XP for no challenge. I don't walk into rooms like they show in that trailer, always stealthed rogue first ,p Gets boring after the 9th time... also just like in NWN1 there is no way to boost your disarm trap roll with an item.... and that is one of these things I don't like either. It to some extend limits your character development

What you list there is correct, and is why nobody wanted to play Commander in BF2.... you had to read 5 pages of rules near the end-life of BF2 just so you don't get kicked, and by then the commander was so gimped you might as well just drive that tank instead, and do more good.

Blackthorne?

or do you mean Another World / Out of this world?

Besides those 2 I can't think of anything else ;p

The performance was abysmal

Primary reason I stopped playing after only a few weeks. You CANNOT suffer framerate issues in a game this focused on precision aiming.

So this isn't just because the new expansion just released? Nmhhh.... anyway, for a First Impression this one was an epic fail. For me the non working Tutorial was worse, because the game seems to have become even more opaque for a new player.

Gonna be a real pretty sight once people who didn't buy it yet start playing this.. So I tried the free weekend thingy.. was a """"great"""" experience. Can't even put enough "'s there.

I must be misunderstanding the point of free weekends.... also if that is "dramatically improved performance" then either they introduced a major rendering bug in the last patch or they speak a different language. The performance was abysmal and especially for someone who never played NS2 a real kicker, the tutorial didn't work....

While I am all for bringing the best RPG ever made to a greater audience, that trailer is not a particular good representation of what BG2 is about or how it plays. And one thing is for sure, there will be 0 3D camera motions in BG2.. ever. So wonder why they show them...

And walking through traps like they show is the fastest way to the reload screen there is.... ^^

Yeah, hence why I am so sad Hellgate: London turned out the way it did, had that game be given proper love and mod support we'd have the best first persion action RPG ever made on our hands. Instead all there is, is literally Borderlands.. and I am no fan of forced COOP games like that.

Well I pledged for Star Citizen already so the real question is whether my hopes got the better of me in this case. I have very little interest in the MP aspect of this game ;/ For Rebirth I am simply waiting for proper reviews before buying it. The game looks greats, but the scope and immersion of SP is what sells it for me or not.

I agree with you Prez, but he is just troll baiting you... ignore him. They really need to offer more info on the SP portion. If it's just a linear story romp ala Wing Commander.. then I think X Rebirth might be the superior game after all.
