I have a suggestion.  Can we by ANY way start restricting people with bad internet and bad computers to COOP?  Seriously, losing matches because people don't load in for 5 minutes or ever all the time is really turning me off.  Losing match after match because you are down 2-3 ships every game is not any fun.

Nope. The servers are open 24hr a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. No one is restricted access to the servers ever...

Now your ISP on the other hand... They fall under Federal Regulations... From 2016 to 2020, There was no incentive to improve telecom infrastructure..

These next 4 years, we have seen a change in getting reliable service to everyone...


The world is blazing faster then the Northern or Southern Hemisphere of the Americas... If you want faster service of your peers...The SEA server is where you're better off...

I have a better suggestion... You could buy everyone the best of the best computers and internet providers.

This way your poor play can't be blamed on other players.

This does happen to repeat offenders.

This, no load often enough and they have a bunch of required co-op games before going back to other modes.

If this is Ranked, Brawl, CB, or another competitive mode, then yes. Otherwise, no can do.

I run a fast machine, sufficiently fast to load any game off the SSD raid array in a short time. Used to be you were loaded first and moving first in conquest attack maps without a 30 second wait timer. Take two bases before the Red Team has loaded in off the old spinner hard drive.

The internet is off fiber, but ethernet cable to the computer router. ISP is in the process of replacing that with straight fiber optic. I already have access to that by tethering USB smart phone and gain up and down speeds equal to fiber off one of the towers (Plural) The backbone is two miles from me. And there are about 14 datacenters in my region able to handle fiber optic traffic supporting that backbone.

Once in a while tornado shows up and rips a few poles or someone drunk cuts the one pole near the ISP's local Net Center. Takes about 3 hours to replace the pole and another 30 to 40 hours to reboot the 1500 or so customers (University is one customer, they may have 10,000 computers to connect on fiber) and get their net going again. We had a tornado emergency last night that dissipated before it reached me. The phone went nuts when the law enforcement locally alerted me while I was in game with Wows. So that worked out.

The next machine in which I already have additional parts being acquired will feature 14 SSD's in Raid 5 supported by 20 Barracuda Blacks in a Array. I go to yard sales and buy throw away dish or other receivers that contain a 2 terabyte black hard drive in them for 50 cents. Cut the drive out, format to factory and add to array. Cheap. None of that 100 dollar retailing. So my data storage capacity is endless. As the arrays get bigger, the up and download read/writes become faster. Unnecessarily fast as the connection is already maxed out unless in fiber optic. (Again those two words.)

Where i was raised on the east coast my family thinks they are fast with local Cable Internet. The problem is the entire subdivision has to share that same connection. So they fight each other for it. Their internet service is actually crappier than mine in the deep south. Being so close to DC and cannot watch a basic you tube video without stutters and pauses.

Shameful. Such is 'Merica.

WOWS doesn't require a very fast Internet connection. I live in the "boonies," far from any fiber optic lines. My data comes to me over decades'-old phone lines. However, I've never had a problem loading or playing the game. One problem may be related to the home network. Default router settings usually give priority to phone and mobile device connections. If you play games on a PC that is connected to a home network then you should go into your router settings and give your gaming PC the highest priority.

If you want a solution, then you're willing to pay for it, right?

Otherwise, talk is cheap.
Money talks and bovine excrement walks.

Internet glitches happen.  People enjoying the game with older or budget-friendly computers might still buy stuff from the premium shop.
Why would WG/WOWs ever want to restrict people from the opportunity to buy WG/WOWs products, eh?

I tried playing ranked on 486 with 1MB VRAM SVGA card, AOL dialup, and this was the result....

Got a new unit this year. Well, actually last year, but installed it this year. My old unit had the old style HDD hard drive. It sounded like a Push mower running near the end. 
 

It worked fine but was on its last leg. A new unit does help. Keep in mind though, everyone’s situation is different. I’m sure people are playing with what they have. Playing with challenges is just part of the game sometimes.

The poor shlubs playing on boat anchor PC's  with a 56 Kbps Hayes modem dial-up connection are just as likely to be on the other team as yours.

Yeah, the United States of America is a terrible place to live.  Have you ever spent time in a foreign country (and no, ports on a cruise ship do not count)?

They can't really tell a persons PC is "bad"  or the internet without grabbing data most people won't allow or can easily prevent.

^ This.

Random distribution of players in MM means the red team will have the proud crapbox owner just as often as the green.

I've played WOWS on cafeteria internet without problems. I've played the NA server on rural hotel internet from Australia without problems.

The majority of the offenders I've seen in-game recently are from South and Central America, based on their clan tags and Spanish- or Portuguese-flavoured usernames. Sad to say it's their infrastructure which is screwing them over, and it's a thing over which they have very little control. I'm inclined to give them a pass on that.

Because clearly people who may not be able to afford better should be punished for matters often beyond their control /s

What next?  Limit players to monitors to screen with <1ms response time?   Mechanical keyboards?  Gaming mouse? 

CW is for those players.  Randoms are random.  deal with it.

Memories. Surfing the BBS scene on my Hayes V-Series Ultra Smartmodem 9600. Screeching modem tones and VGA Planets. :cap_cool:
