I'm serious,Things got tough financially with all the bad patches and they had to cut costs and this was the only way.

Majority of players are experiencing packet loss and you have to cut cost somewhere and this was the only way.

The tutorial on when to shoot a rocket or shoot accordingly when PL is low on your end will be coming soon.

It's all in the timing along with watching the red pl thing.

I just played a few matches....brutal,packet loss for everyone according to the chat....why wont they listen to us and fix this?

Phone your hosting company WG(I even offered them the phone numbers)and tell them to fix it,switching or what ever.

400 on tonight,half are having problems with packet loss.

4 of the servers they use show packet loss according to ping plotter which they encourage us to use but dont know how to work it.

Amazing.

I hear WG is in deep negotiations with Canada in the hopes to get a dog sled team to replace the hamster

The games pretty well hooped right now,not even 300 players on a saturday night.

On the other hand if you utilize when others have packet loss and you dont then you can get 4 kills.

An ace eluded me tonight but I had many 4 kill battles.

In my opinion the title of this thread is probably pretty accurate.  I did some searching on the web and it is quite possible that WG is trying to save $ by reducing their bandwidth.  Bandwidth costs money and based on their fairly recent history of closing offices and shutting down games, well......   the writing might be on the wall.  

 

The lack of responsiveness from support for this very issue across all regions and all games is also a big red flag.  GP should probably polish his resume and update his Linked In profile.  

 

Just sayin'....

 

[Edit] And by the way, where in the heck do the times come from when they tag these posts with the date and time?  Sometimes I post at 9PM and it shows as 6AM, other times it's an hour off like now.  I mean, WTH?  

/end rant

Too bad WG doesn't understand that in order to make money you have to spend some in certain cases

 

Sure you can go garbage picking, whoring yourself out on the streets, or pull internet scams (oh wait) 

 

 

Tell you what though, Ghostprime does indeed have a great resume and he can put all of us down as references

Shirley you are not referring to me in the "pull internet scams".  As for garbage picking and whoring, well.... I was young once.....

I'm beginning to wonder if my 11-kill game is tied to packet loss of others............

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

i think they simply let the game get over loaded with players. suspect that server investment is geared toward tanks, but now warplanes is gaining popularity and they haven't got the infrastructure in place.
