PC Spec - Gaming Survey IMPORTANT

Ok i thought id take the bull by the horns and post this to get some good feedback for PN.

As we know, the lag encountered playing games such as WoW sometimes makes the game unplayable. Several things could account for this including :

PN connection and network they own
WoW servers

also

User pc spec.

So, please answer the following small survey :

1. Did you encounter less lag before the 27th October 2005?
2. ADSL speed?
3. Computer Processor Speed
4. Graphics Card
5. RAM
6. Do you get similar lag on other games?
7. Do you feel its only PN users who get the high amount of lag?
8. Do you feel you are being ignored by PN?
9. Also answer the poll question

my answers :

1. Yes, definately
2. 2meg
3. 3gig
4. NVDIA GeForce 6600 with updated driver
5. 1 gig
6. Yes
7. Yes, based on asking players in my party.

PC Spec - Gaming Survey IMPORTANT

Hi,

As you might have seen on the WoW thread, earlier today we've implemented some changes that should hopefully inprove the current connection issues that some gamers are seeing. Any feedback on the situation over the next couple of days would be appreciated.

PC Spec - Gaming Survey IMPORTANT

1. Did you encounter less lag before the 27th October 2005?

I wouldn't know! I've only just started using the PC for gaming since.... well just at that date actually. I ocassionally encounter some clunkiness but I have tended to blame that on a shoddy server or the delights of wireless connectivity. On the whole, things run well on Day Of Defeat so far. Not tried Xbox Live yet (this will be done via DIRECT connection though).

2. ADSL speed?

2mb

3. Computer Processor Speed

754 Newcastle 3000+ 64bit

4. Graphics Card

Sapphire ATi x800GTO2 unclocked

5. RAM

1GB

6. Do you get similar lag on other games?

I only play DoD! Yet to branch out onto any RTS games.

7. Do you feel its only PN users who get the high amount of lag?

Since I only get the opinion of PN users, I'd say YES.

8. Do you feel you are being ignored by PN?

Not voiced anything to ignore. Although the fact that for £3 more, Be are going to be hooking up my area and I should be able to get about 15-18mb, I can't ignore that. Leaving fee will be £47 due to no hardware too Wink

9. Also answer the poll question

A hefty 'Unsure' mainly due to waiting to see what the future holds. But its not going to be TOO hard to sway me away, some lovely carrots need to be dangled in retaliation to the competition!
