  1. half joking. Also, fixed your pic
  2. PUBG Deep Rock Galactic - this game is like left for dead meets Minecraft meets starship troopers. Candy crush
  3. If they make Godzilla it's basically the same game. Wonder if Tom Savini would make a "Savini Godzilla" skin.
  4. The getting connected to foreign server is probably on the aws end unless google fiber super screwed their routing which is plausible but unlikely because their network doesn't extended very far right now. But they could have terrible peering agreements which routes their traffic god knows where. It's more likely a mix of the two networks. The fact you are getting high latency within thin the US means they are routing you through multiple hubs which increases transit time. This is probably happening on both ends. The traffic is taking indirect routes on both networks and there is nothing you can do about this. This is all up to the isps routing engineers. The article about google fiber shows how their engineers are continually changing their data routes and how it is less than optimized. You just have to wait for them to get it all worked out. This goes both ways. The aws isps also has to have optimal routes to ensure the best connection. It's probably not solely your ISP but they are part of it. The aws can become overloaded to like @Kaelum said and this can increase latency or shunt you to another server further away. This is probably why you end up on a foreign server. That is something on their end they need to work out though. Without knowing all the details it's nearly impossible to say for sure but it's most likely a combination between the two providers. Or multiple providers aws servers aren't all on the same network either. Edit: tagged wrong person
  5. I'll try to explain. The links below may help. Your bandwidth doesn't determine your speed, even though it is advertised that way. Your bandwidth determines the amount of data that can be sent acrossed the network. Think of it as a road. The higher the bandwidth the wider the road and the more traffic that can flow through it. Latency is the the length of the road and route of the traffic. The further the traffic(bandwidth) has to travel the longer it takes to get to where it's going(latency). Now google fiber built these really wide roads so they can allow lots of traffic to flow at once. However, their routes aren't from point a to point b right now when you are traveling a far distance. It's more of a point a to b to c and maybe even more. The further you go the longer your route due to the routing structure. This won't always be the case their network isn't finished being built yet, basically some of their roads are under construction and you are taking a detour until then. As long as you are traveling with your networks roads you should arrive at your destination relatively quickly even with the extra stops because the number routing hubs is relatively low but the further you go the higher the latency will be currently. Ok, so that was a little on bandwidth, latency and Google's network, now on to the rest of the internet. As we know not all data exists on the same network so usually at some point you have to leave your networks road and use another networks infrastructure (road). This road may not be up-to the same standards as your networks roads. They could be smaller or bigger and have more direct routes or take scenic routes. So, now all your traffic can be forced to drive on a smaller road with many rerouting stops along the way. This increases latency and the amount of data that can be recieved at once. AaThe two networks have to come up with agreements with each other on how to handle each others traffic. Worst case scenario all routes are blocked and you can't access the other networks roads. This happens from time to time when two companies are angling for better agreements so the cut each other off. Each network wants their traffic to receive the fastest and widest route on the other network so it is important for them to reciprocate but not all networks are equal and thus sometimes you may end up getting routed to the dirty road because of lacking infrastructure or disputes between networks. Your network can only really offer you high speeds and large bandwidth within their network. It's kind of deceptive. But, usually it carries over to some degree to other networks. It's still with having the best connection on your network though for obvious reasons. Right now google fiber is new, it is still building it's infrastructure(roads) and optimizing it's routes and forging agreements with other providers. Even when that all gets worked out though you still are dependent on the networks for overall performance. So while your network might expand and give you faster access to more content eventually you will have to leave your networks road and use another and bottlenecks are going to happen.

  6. Question

    You should try "Desert Bus" on steam. Riveting gameplay.
  7. It kind of is your ISP but that's probably not the only reason. The patch could have messed up their server routing but your ISP is part of the issue. You are getting great speeds within your network but connecting outside your network depends on the networks backbone you are connecting to. Also you are doing a speed test within your network and to a server that is really close to you. I can almost guarantee that Gun isn't using Google Fiber as their backbone. I don't know for sure but I would say that they are probably using a second or third party connected to Cognet or Level 3 for us/euro servers. So it would depend on the peering/transfer agreement between google and those companies that determine your connection to those servers. If for some reason in the future they decide to not work with each other you would literally lose access to parts of the internet. For the internet to be used fully these companies have to cooperate with each other so your connection isn't solely based of your ISP. Then there is the issue of what the backbone of the server you are connecting to is built on. South American infrastructure probably isn't running on top notch fiber or whatever the highest standard is right now. I would suggest running a test on your network to a server far away but still in your network. If you are in Kansas test a new york server. Then run a test outside your network something not using Google Fiber. I think you'll be surprised by both results. From what I understand google fiber hasn't optimized their routing yet so testing on a local server in your network is a poor test.
  8. That would depend on what options are available to him/her. It could be the best option in the area. It would require research on their part. Google fiber might offer the fastest connection speeds in their area but another provider could give better results at slower speeds depending on the ISPs backbone. Until google gets their infrastructure up to speed the connection will probably be erratic.
  9. @Alkavian did someone summon me. For future reference I come faster if tagged three times. Unfortunately having a good connection is only half the battle. Well, maybe a quarter of the battle. There are lots of factors that intimately determine your connection and most of them are beyond your control. First your ISP is the main point in your connect so depending on their infrastructure and how they are connected to the rest of the world is most important. They might offer great connections in your area but if their backbone is shut it's not gonna mean much in the grand scheme. The next big thing is what you are connecting to. Pretty much the same as what I just said in reverse. You obviously are gonna get the best connections with systems that are closest to you. Connecting to the other side of the world expect some lag, unless the backbone of both providers is top notch. For best results use a hardline. Wi-Fi will always give sub-par results. Edit: I did a quick search on Google Fibers backbone and it seems like it's currently a mess. Probably because they are building it from scratch. Until they get it all laid out and it communicating with the other networks properly it is probably going to give erratic results. This will probably take years building a worldwide infrastructure is no easy task. On the infrastructure they have laid the routing is a jumble mess currently, often routing through multiple hubs that are nowhere near the destination of what you are connecting to. As I said its mostly out of your control.
  10. @ShiftySamurai With no updates coming for a minimum of 2 months it would be a great time for a contest or giveaway. The prize doesn't even have to be anything extraordinary. A clothing or kill pack or even just player recognition would probably suffice. This section is completely under utilized. Give the fans something to look forward to while they wait for this long off update. You could do a giveaway or a contest of some sort with a prize to the winner. A contest would get the community involved more rather than a random drawing of submitted names. Example fan art contest: Members submit their best fan art privately to a gun email account. Gun chooses their top 3 and posts a poll with the 3 pieces displayed for the members to vote on. Winner gets prize. There's like a ton of contest ideas you could run with in addition to random drawings. Would like to see this section get some action in the near future.

  12. Maybe not so much getting new players but keeping their current players. The current strategy is "population getting low let's have a sale". Probably keep some people interested and playing and have to have less sales to up the player base if they kept the base interested with contests, competitions, giveaways, etc.
  13. A working one. But, let's be honest, the current game engine works fine. It's the games implementation on it that's causing the issues. Upgrading the engine amounts to nothing if it's the same people programming it. I'm doubtful that the programmers gained some great knowledge that will allow them to program better on an upgraded engine that is probably world's different from the old engine. They've had years of experience with the current engine and the game still is pretty buggy. Thinking moving to a new engine they have limited knowledge on is gonna somehow fix everything would be rather naive.
  14. Reporting of jason helper's/cheater's

    That's not going to happen. Outing griefers is against the forums rules. They suck and if you have evidence of cheating submit it directly to them via email at f13game@fearthegun.com or through http://www.jasonkillsbugs.com. unfortunately you can't call them out here and an in game report/avoid system still doesn't exist and I'm doubtful it ever will. So if you want them gone you have to do all the leg work. Good luck.
  15. Bad game, I come to the forums and read about people still arguing to get "savini" Jason re-released. It reminds me that even with a bad round at least I didn't miss out on the longest selling once in a life time opportunity. lol jk, I load next match and try again.
  16. Found this image while perusing the web today. Any thoughts?

  20. Jason is no longer a marshmallow but he is still rather easy to kill due to the single kill scenario. Everyone knows the kill procedure at this point so even with Jason being a tough guy again he is still rather easy to defeat. This is where alternate kill scenarios would come in. I would like to see a few but even one alternate scenario could give counselors pause before going straight for the kill. I was trying to think of a scenario that wasn't location dependent, like the boat kill would be, and settled on a Jason goes to Hell kill scenario. I would be up for a boat kill but i have a feeling it would be a difficult task to pull of for both developers and players. So here it is. JgtH Kill (Voorhees Dagger) In this scenario there would be no sweater. Instead, in a random cabin the miniature movie scene from virtual cabin would spawn on top of a locked drawer. Players must collect the three little figurines hidden around the map and place them in the correct positions in the set to unlock the drawer and get the Voorhees Dagger. You would still need Tommy and to remove the mask. After getting the dagger you would have to normal stun Jason before the dagger can be used. While he's stunned activate the dagger to stab Jason. At this point Jason Gets his QTE to try and remove the dagger before Tommy finishes him off by pushing the dagger all the way in. If performed successfully the scene plays out like it did in the movie and Jason is dragged to Hell. If not the dagger is removed and unusable again. This scenario can be altered a bit but the general idea I believe is sound. They could add a different hero instead of Tommy. I would be fine with that but it makes little difference and would be faster to integrate with just using him. The main thing is that an alternate kill scenario means the counselor's don't immediately know what they need to do to kill Jason. They would have to explore a bit and see what's what before taking appropriate action. They wouldn't just be going straight for the kill because they wouldn't know if they need to go get the sweater or not. It might also force some communication because if someone goes for the sweater and it's not there it could be because someone picked it up already or because it's not there due to the scenario being played out. This scenario has the added benefit of incorporating movie knowledge into the game. Because even though it's the simple 3 figurine lock puzzle knowing the order increases your chances of winning. They could even add different miniature scenes so even with only two kill scenarios there could be multiple ways for it to play out. Movie knowledge would come in to play if that was the case. Plus, most of the assets and some of the mechanics to pull off this particular kill are already in the game thanks to virtual cabin. I think adding alternative kill scenarios would really give the game some replay value and keep the gameplay interesting. I would like to see at least one additional if not more added to the game. The mystery of not knowing the kill procedure right off the bat would definitely make for better gameplay in my opinion. For Your Viewing Pleasure Hopefully you read it before the reward. Had to get you in here somehow.
  21. Probably be easier to find the figurines than demask Jason. You have to search drawers already anyway so they are bound to be found. Might take a little cooperation but same is usually true with demasking. Can it be done solo? Sure, but easier with help. Also, less empty drawers. That's always a plus. Probably same difficulty. Cooperation is key and with randoms both would be difficult. The only thing is they would have to the figurines to map if dropped to stop trolls from hidding them in the woods or elsewhere.
  22. Share Your Experiences

    Yeah, Alk and I might be in remote locations but the problem isn't entirety on our end. This game needs some network upgrades(dedicated servers for one). I can play PUBG in a lobby of 100 on the other side of the world with minimal lag but play in an eight man lobby here and the lobby closes higher than the Dow Jones. It makes playing Jason nearly impossible and forget about driving as a counselor.
