    The OP hit the nail on the head with ping..... it is irrelevant if they are not going to look at the problem and fix it! Dedicated servers are needed to support the player base, as it is now it just fits in with the P2P bracket. Dedicated servers are a MUST for this game to make it an even playing field, if they don't then PGI might as well say "we don't care about others except our own country base".

    I thought it was IGP that came out and said we don't care about our player base.

    No I am not making this up they did come out and say that. And not just their player base but their "founders" player base.

    As for dedicated servers. The player base is so low already dedicated servers will just show this number for that it is. That is why the company has been hiding it for such a long time. All units in this game are a mere shadow of what they once were.

    Dedicated servers will also cause massive problems with the regular update system and allow cheating/hacks etc into the game in a major way.

    I have to say that they responded to the South African's to say that they had been chatting to the major ISP's to prioritise traffic. They also asked who our ISP's were so that they can contact them.......which is pretty darn impressive.

    Wouldn't it be nice if they did that type of thing automatically!

    this made me think a bit and realise i stopped playing much when my pjng jumped up to 300+. depressing shooting stuff in the face only to have no hit register.

    i now get on solo for a couple of matches check my ping and close it down again.
    posted and fingers crossed for an improvement.

    Sounds exactly what I do, mine hovers around 400+ though due to being stuck on 3G in the sticks.

    Download patch using up precious bandwidth, play a couple of matches, get frustrated with not hitting anything. Leave until enough time has passed that the need to stomp around in a giant mech has outweighed my memory of crap ping.

    rinse, repeat.

    Bugger, hard to play like that. Was going to compete for the griffin giveaway but I'd not use it till I can hit things.

    Trust me you want to get this mech. Even with a ping time in the 400's I am able to do over 300 damage consistently.

    Running 2xSRM6, 2xSRM4 and Medium Lasers
