    man, lemme tell ya...

    i am a lpb...or was that is...

    until bellsouth cut my adsl by mistake. i know most of ya have heard me whine about it a BILLION times, but hopefully by next week it will be fixed...(they just got the new cables ran for my phone...those pricks)...

    so anyway, i get my modem in my machine today, and i decide to jump online and play a few games just to see what the HPB's feel like...

    man...it SUCKS!!! i couldn't hit the broadside of a barn, and got whacked everytime i turned around...and then right when i would get someone in my sights...BOOM...they vanish. The lowest ping i could get was 350!!! i was on one server and all of a sudden i was at 1500!

    all i have to say is this...

    next time i am playing anyone online with a ping of greater than 250...man, i won't shoot you if i can help it...

    it's a completely different game and man, it opened my eyes...

    HEHE! :) I'm a modem user, but through patients and research and a bunch of tweeking (many hours of it) I get as low as 110 to 280 with an average ping of about 200!Take a look NgUid 1510970 {COS}Evil_LarrE !

    AND I just came off a DM 421 server (only found one, but a bunch of CTF 421's)and my ping was registering between 325 to 550 and guess what, It was playable and I was able to use shock rifle, Normally if my ping isn't less than 190 its worthless for combo fire ! I took a look at the maps I played on this server and my ping was registered on map as 165 !!!!
    Take a look : http://www2.ut.ngworldstats.com/fcgi-bin/DisplayGame?gt=UT&gm=dm&ip=193.215.199.13&port=7877&ts=962239029483

    WOOOHOO Give me 421!

    Jing has entered the ranks of HPBism. I don't particularly like it...but who would after two years of T1? 56k (52 right now) is a joke.

    But you know? I'm doing surprisingly well. And not as much flak flinging as I thought I would. I played a few games today with Harm and some randoms (viewable on my Ng... I think they might have been newbies. I really felt like it) and held my own... I also Played with Mrukk, Boom, and Dopefish, and did (in my opinion) very well there also. Just wait until i can play at night and there isn't glare on my monitor and i can actually see things (I couldn't see walls or anything in conveyor...pretty bad).
    Avg ping is 300's... but it feels a lot worse... because i would get htat kinda ping when I was on T1 playing with PuFs, but it was a helluva lot smoother/faster connect...no jumpiness.

    I wouldn't like to play without some lag. I'm trained to play with it. Gameplay seems to be best at about 200-250ms, with no packet loss.

    I have cable modem myself and I ping under 100 to a lot of servers. Still, I play on a lot of servers that I ping 200-270 ms to just to keep my lag shooting skills up.

    I have to admit that I miss my 300+ ping im used to. I cant hit crap anymore with this sub 200 ping i've been playing with, and im suffering a lot from it.. Boom would probably wipe the floor with me.... ok I aint that bad yet but I probably will be soon :).

    Ping never lower than 350? Welcome to my world D_O :(

    You can play at those pings (just look at LK- the guy's a HPB shock-whore FFS), it takes getting used to, but you can do it. :)

    You just gotta practice with high pings, and get used to what weapons are usefull, and which arent. As a HPB you now have the right to bĂ­tch about pings with reason, and as a general rule HPB's can take a joke more. Cos their connection is such a joke anyway :)

    Oh yeah, as a HPB, you have to hate LPB's :)

    Yep, Ruff, when I switched to ISDN (don't laugh...it's all they have here :() I had trouble with the sub 200 ping too. I was so used to 400 ping that the game was too fast. I used to lead targets by a mile...but now, I can actually aim and shoot. It took awhile to get used too, but I finally adapted. Now, if I get on my modem again...I play like LordKhaine...can't hit crap. :)

    well...i have hopefully just a week more until i get my adsl at my new place, so being an HPB will just be like a bad memory. see, i had never played with a sub 200 ping, and my primary weapon was the sniper...OH WELL>>>not no more! i would have someone right in my site and they were gone in a blink! i fired off six rockets, the server dropped my connection, then it picked up (ya know the red box)...and i got smacked down by my own friggen rockets!!!

    then i promptly excused myself from the server after that horrible display (i was laughing too uncontrollably).

    anyways, just dropping in here to sympathize with you guys. it's kinda unfair...never really realized it...

    I am surprised that so many PuFfers are HPB's. For a while there I thought I was the only 56Ker that played UT!! I tweaked modem strings and so on till I'm usually in the low 200's and high 100's. When I get on a server (everyonce in a while) that I get a steady 150 or so, man, I'm happier than a pig in mud!! But even in the 280's I'm still a shock whore!!

    HPB'S UNITE! :)

    I was playing a game yesterday, almost all of the players had similar ping to mine, 200+. The other team had one guy at 91. This guy, I could not touch. The rest of his team, I took out pretty easy, but this guy owned me the entire game. Once this guy got the flag, we just couldn't get it back. We still wound up winning the game though.

    I HATE LPB's, (Present company not included, of course)

    I've got cable modem and when my ping is between 200 and 300 (on MANY servers) I can play almost as well as when it's sub 200, sometimes better. Course on the very very few servers I have sub 100 pings, I feel l337 ;-)

    But for the past week, I've been playing where I'd have spurts of sub 200 pings, and then steady 500-900 pings, sometimes spiking into the 2000's. I'm not playing UT, but chess at this point. I have to anticipate the enemy's next 5 moves while I'm trying for 3 minutes to pick up the rocket launcher I'm gonna use to kill him. Oh yeah, combine that with 20-30% packetloss during the high ping moments and you get torture. &lt;sarcasm&gt;I think it's fun to spawn, run to the rl and pick it up, then go half-way to the enemy base... and then find yourself in some remote parts BEHIND your base, weaponless, staring at a wall. This is one of the things about UT I dont like. In fact, I think I'm going to start a thread about this... (see thread)

    Oh, and that's a pretty fresh skin Lamb!

    It takes lots and lots of practice with a modem to be good at it. I've been playing with a modem since Quake 1, and I'm pretty much used to it.

    If I had a ping of under 300 I think I'd die of shock and not be able to hit anything.

    Currently, I have a 56k that'll only dialup at 44, and my packet loss actually went to 150% the other day.

    I never knew that it could go over 100%.

    Don't ever yell at HPB campers, because they are probably just standing in one spot until their ping drops back down from 1500.
