…but then I sussed out what was going on and spoiled what has been a fun week playing gears.
Story ahead, sorry.
The past week gears has been playing actually alright. Shots seemed good, hits where mostly hits, misses didn’t get me too may odd gibs.
Movement felt fluid, if slow, but it seemed to let me bounce pretty well. Even bouncing big slides that usually end with me humping one wall worked pretty consistently
Had an odd outlier game that played like trash, where 3 players joined with ping in the hundreds. That game was back to low ping hell., but the game after, with even more crappy connections, played OK again.I really started to think maybe tc have stealth fixed some netcode or system and the game might finally be playing like it should.
Tonight I sussed it out.
My phone line very briefly cut out and weirdly didn’t kick my internet.
After checking I was still online, I remebered my dowload speeds had been a bit slow and i’d seen my server pings for other games be a bit higher than normal. So after checking I was correct , download and upload were nearly half my normal speed. I jumped on sky’s site and got them to run a basic line test.
Yep, you guessed it. There is a frackin’ line fault, a line fault! FFS gears.
The game has played the best it has since launch and it is while my connection is faulty!!!
What kind of hellish logic do these damnned severs work under when my ailing connection seems to be the key reason that the game has played well!
I know we low pingers complain about this a lot, but I need outlet for my frustration with this ridiculous situation.
