Phil and online

Recommended Posts

Every online game Phil plays has bad online, bad connection, bad netcode. A bunch of his most disappointing games of the year were on the list just because the online was bad.

You would think Phil would realize by now that the problem might be his business Internet.

You would think the Internet would be full of these complaints if the online was so bad. But guess what, the only one I see complaining about bad online is Phil.

COD even told him he has moderate NAT but he insisted he doesn't even though he probably never checked it.

He says he was able to play online games just fine in the past so that means the online for new games must suck. But was it when he was in CT? Did the complaining about online started when he moved to Washington?

I remember he mentioned that he can't use his 2nd Internet line because it's too far away, that Kat uses it. Does it mean he's streaming, watches his Twitch stream and plays online on the same connection? What could possibly go wrong.

I don't have enough information about the quality of his Internet line/s, or how he manages them, but if what you're saying is accurate, what would you propose to him to fix/lessen the problem?

switch to open nat

use the 2nd line for online

don't use wifi for online or get a high speed wifi

ask a technician what could be improved or at least get a confirmation your connection sucks

or stop complaining about online in every game and deal with it that your setup sucks

even if his connection is fast it doesn't mean he can't have a big lag on it when he runs 2 video streams

or maybe the internet is his area simply sucks

Business internet is meant for reliability and low to zero downtime. It has nothing to do with speed. He's paying hundreds of extra dollars just so the internet works, not so it works well.

Being mad at game devs for your NAT type being wrong is just silly. If your Network isnt open to the right ports for the game of course it will show the NAT as closed or moderate. Theres no interpretation there. It's fact.

As mentioned, Business class internet rarely if ever relates to overall speed/latency quality. It's more about how quickly you can get issues resolved (outages, low speeds, packet loss, etc.,) removal of caps and (sometimes) higher upload bandwidth. Even with high bandwidth, you can still have latency issues which will cause lag in games. So yeah, Business class internet isn't necessarily better. It's like assuming because you bought a first class plane ticket you won't have turbulence. 

I'm not saying the issue is or isn't his internet, just corroborating what others have said. There are other factors as well such as display lag, other player's connection, server connection, etc.  There's also just good ol' human reaction time getting worse as you get older.

One of his complain about bad netcode in COD is that he sees something else than what happens in the other guy's killcam

This could be simply a latency issue, maybe combined with the moderate NAT. It's not like Phil knows how online programming and netcode work. He thinks that because he sees something different than the other guy it means the game is automatically shit and it can't possibly be his business Internet. He doesn't have the option to go to someone's else house and try it out there or enough free time to try the online while not streaming.
