It's not about the frames. Sure you WANT low frames, but you play with what you can get.Actually play on server? So you'd play on the server with more frames instead of the LA server? The LA server is empty, and the TX server will share the same fate. I know how the server dynamic works. I've hosted servers before after all. One thing I've learned is that this community is too small to have that many servers. Like I told Matts, by having more servers, you are dividing an already small userbase. I've hosted a server in Texas and it was hardly used. People will only play in Chicago or NY because that's the area where mostly everyone lives. (i.e. east coast)
I voted for Chicago, but I wouldn't mind NY if there's no packet dropping if your ping is above a certain threshold. Aka the WC gets ****ed.
Since I mostly p2p nowadays, and now that DCT is actually populated because FU is down, I've been getting some games in; I totally forgot how annoying that 18.5 min lagout is. If we can't remake kaillera, can we at least fix that?
You don't say.LA server is empty because no one plays on it, and there is no one to play. East coast server is played because people are there to play.
Nope. No one from the EC is going to go out of their way to play you in another server where they get higher frames. It's like when I would ask on FU if anyone wanted to play at DCT. No one replied to me. People are going to go to the server that they want to be on. They're not going to hang around on a server where they get higher frames. I've hosted a server in Texas before while I also hosted one in NY. The Texas server was always empty. The only time it wasn't empty was when the NY one would go down.If there was a Texas server, the small amount of wc people that wanted to play can play EC, broadening the user base, and mid coast people can have low ping.
The only reason why DCT has people right now is because FU is down. Once that's back up, DCT will be empty again. It's not dividing anything. I'm pretty sure pablito has said already that we aren't in control of DCT. It could go down tomorrow for all we know. But then you have the argument that you can just make a server if DCT goes down. Here's where my experience of hosting servers come into play. You lose people when you change IP addresses. They think the server is down and it's GG NO RE. You can't keep changing IP addresses like that because you lose players. Obviously the core players or the players who have some understanding of this are going to come back, but this is not the case for the rest of the people. Those people will eventually find it, but it's going to take some time.The only thing a NY server will do is divide the fanbase that uses the chicago server and the NY server, which is exactly the point your making. There is literally only a 1 frame difference between ny and chicago for most people, IF ANY (I'm in GA and I get 2 frames in both (actually 3 sometimes in fu now because of weird routing, even more reason to have only dct)).
You make an argument for splitting a user base and vote to split the user base, congrats.
This has no relevance because I wasn't talking about p2p. I was talking about having people go to DCT from FU.Near. A lot of people would actually want to play you if they didn't get **** frames from your ****ty location.
I would get 3 or 4 frames.I could get 3 frames easily to texas, and im sure you'd get 4-5. That's not BAD (not good) but playable, and I would definately play you more, and I'm sure a few others too.
Yeah, because I LOVE SMASH didn't want to pay anymore or something. We were able to do something about it though, as evidenced by KnitePhox's initiative to host a server. If something happens to KP's server, we can do something to keep it up whether it's donations or a new server. Anyway, the new server is up now, so just watch until DCT is empty again.Yes, dct can be removed at any time, but it hasn't. You know what DID go down? Smash fu.
