Teleporting with good ping

(23OO23) #1


I will say it straight away: my flatmates keep p2p programs on pretty much all the time, even if only for seeding their filthy p**n. They keep it up even after a talk, thus the reason I still try even though I teleport all the time.

Usually when I have lags, it is at least shown on scoreboard. Alas for two days already my shown ping is a stable 30-40. But - I teleport every 10-20s or so, and it is for me - with lags I did not see it but others did, here I can see it.

For a few games it was alright - no one said anything, so I kept playing. But at some point I was best scorer and that made them notice my teleporting. I probably got reported, I do not mind it that much - at least until I get a perma ban or something. Which is why I am writing this.

I wanted to learn if DB servers are currently in any way affected by something that would cause mini lags. I’ve heard from one person that even with good ping he/she teleported occasionally, so I thought it is probably worse for me in some way - but sadly I am unable to get better internet in a shared flat, and I love Dirty Bomb and do wish to play it even with, what seemed to be, small lags.

The biggest problem for me is that ping ingame is perfect and I am not surprised people will see this as a hack of some sorts. I use cmd with ping command for EU server for Dota 2 as I consider it to mirror DB connection well - and it does show lag spikes.

Again: I do wish to play Dirty Bomb, I already did not play for quite some time. So it would be great to hear that something like this will not get me banned, albeit I would not be surprised if it did.

Best Regards

If your flatmate doesn’t mind, you could put some restrictions in router settings. I don’t have teleporting issue, but it certainly feels sometimes that there is some minor lag issue with server. From time to time, random short glimpse of lag in 2 minutes? Sometimes there is no problem.

Well for now it is better - a lot better, so I presume more talk helped. Also - our router does not have an option to put restriction other than simply cut off access to internet - and that sadly will not do :confounded:

Yeah, I hear you; unfortunately, the only solution known to give your game experience a reasonable ease, is to use network monitoring and limiting/firmware which is currently black listed for the use of DB.

The other solution is, get your own exclusive line, which is more expensive but exclusive.

Oh well, will be changing houses, hopefully I will not get such considerate flatmates again. So far did not see any “You got banned, go away. Shoo.” so I guess it’s alright.
