No, it depends on where the server you are connected to is located. Your internet can be fine and working near perfectly, but your connection to that server may not be so good. The result is often high latency measured in milliseconds. If it takes you 0.2 seconds to see a reacting from your units then you have about 200ms.
There isn't much you can do about this on your end, other than checking the ms to your router and improving that. You have no control of your connection beyond that. Sometimes, the net becomes clogged in places and this may explain your bumps up to 4 000 ms.
Thanks for all the praise guys. I really appreciate it. If all goes as intended I will be facing a lot of mean hard-boiled opponents in the comming months and get a taste of my own medicine
But this really couldn't have come to pass without a lot of help from the community.
A by no means complete list of notable mentions are:
- The amazing artwork from RitaRush. - The rough and tough editing by FichtenMoped.
- The finishing touches, pictures with text.
- Some expert feedback and reflections by JaeforJett.
*Coughs* You forgot the edit that came after his, and then the final edit by Major and I where we sat on Skype for four hours. *Coughs*
This is rude of you, Cobra. I doubt Relic would call themselves a Ministry of Truth or even claim to be one. That's your opinion. That's okay, what's not okay is how you have worded it. Also, you haven't linked to an offical statement from Relic, but from an article from PC Gamer. The author of which thinks this is okay. Something you seem to have taken issue with.
Now, that's not a problem. You can disagree with whoever you want, but please, you are on staff, and this sort of wording is unfitting. Keep the language polite. It is okay to disagree or disapprove of something, but doing so in a rude and rough manner is not okay.
It is not to say that you can't express your opinions, but do spend time on the wording of your opinions. Say clearly what you disaprove of, in the best polite language you can muster.
I'll leave you with something to think about.
Who made those skins?
Imagine yourself in their shoes and look at your post again. Imagine working with Relic on these skins for... maybe a month, maybe a lot more.
Now, consider whether Relic had anything to do with this decision or not. These types of decisions are usually done by the marketing department or something similar. Not the studio. Or so I believe.
All things considered, it's very shallow to have all this focus on whale charity (read PR) when this studio has not made a solid game hit for the past 10 years.
If Relic doesn't get their act together, it'll be them going extinct not whales. Also don't forget the irony here. Relic is owned by a Japanese corporation, which as a country are whales, nr.1 enemy.
You have to keep in mind that SEGA has different branches. The Japanese HQ may not have anything to do with this charity, or even know about it. Not to say I know how SEGA operates of course.
Next after that, is the fact that SEGA has nothing to do with the whale hunts. It is a game company. Not a fishing company. A quick google search didn't bring up anything. So, if you feel like digging around, you can do that, but I doubt you'll find a connection.
Another thing, make a new thread next time. Please don't necro old threads like this, Cobra. I'll be locking this one now. If you would like continue this conversation, we can do so in PMs.
