My Internet Speed is 100.0 Mbps - Is this enough for Rvr?

    Are you kidding? 8 Mbps are sufficient for MMORPGs! What is more important is your ping or more pecisely the "round trip time" (RTT). It determines how long a data package needs to travel from the source to the server. Sorry to tell you this, but you won't have too much influence on this parameter.

    It isn't your system that's the issue, it's server side. Hopefully they fix the lag issues before the next beta.

    1)  It's unlikely that you get 100 Mbps to actual online stuff.  You may be looking at your LAN speed, i.e., the bandwidth between your computer and a router sitting a few feet away from your computer.

    2)  If a steady 1 Mbps isn't a fast enough Internet connection, they're going to find the market for their game rather smaller than they hoped.

    Yeah that's pleanty.  I think you meant kb/s.    Almost all MMORPG's are around 5-10 kb/s actually.

    It's not that bad for some. Here 100mb internet package costs you 110$ month. Granted you rarely ever see above 20mb/s speeds because most people aren't pushing 100mb uploads

    I'm not bragging.  I'm playing in china.  it costs me like 15 bucks a month.  but I don't know how to find the exact amount.  what is the normal figure I would need to play this game?  I see a screenshot that say:

    Broadband connection status

    ipv4 connectivity

    ipv6 connectivity

    Media STate

    Duration

    Speed:  100 mbps

     

     

    So how do I find the real speed if its not 100mbps.  I doubt it is cuz im paying 15 bucks.  the most I've been able to down load online has been like 1 - 1.4 mb's on torrents.  how much is needed for this game?

     

     

    EDIT: mind you this was in Chinese: but the lady at the internet shop said my connect was 1.5 mb. So should I get 3 MB? Is that fast enough? Some guy above mentioned 8 MBs??? whats the proper amount to have sufficient speed to play? don't laugh at my 1.5 mb connection haha

    I wonder if he got the M and the K mixed up?

     

    and as a side note, your transfer rate has very little to do with latency. Its all about the ping and less about transfer speeds.

    that being said, the real question is can you RvR from China connecting to a NA or EU server?  To that, I have to ask what is your ping/latency to the server you connect to?

    oooookkkkk then.  my 1.5 mb connection sucks.  no wonder its 15 bucks a month!!!!!!! i'm upgrading this to the highest they got, under 30 bucks.  I hope 3 - 5mb will do for ESO.

    Cyrodill is unplayable this beta. I had anywhere between 3-30 seconds lag almost all the time. I gave up, its not for me.

    EDIT: For reference, im on 60mbit connection

    100 mbps is your local area network speed to the switch and/or router.

    Bandwidth isn't really that important. If you have enough bandwidth to download and update in a reasonable amount of time then you have enough to play. DSL or cable will be fine. 1.5Mbps is enough.

    What is important for pvp is quality of connection, that is latency and packet loss. You want the lowest ping times possible with the least amount of packet loss. Both are mostly out of your control. If you have a choice of service providers then you might be able to choose a better option, but usually most people in the US only have one or two practical choices. You want DSL or cable, not satellite or dial-up.

    You could have the best connection and provider in the world, but if your path to the servers goes through some crappy routers on the way then you're hosed and not much to do. You could try a vpn tunneling service as an option, but I see very mixed reports on results with that.

    Centuries ago, in primitive times, before the dawn of civilization, there were things that would be inconceivable to us today; such things as poverty, disease, violence, senility, and love.

    Overhere in Jolland i have 120 mbps and pay like €20 a month... No max dowload limit..

     

    bandwith however is not the problem...  I played eq just fine on a 28.8 kbps connection from the caribean..  

     

    More important is your pins to the servers, and your ISPs QOS settings... Good ISPs give your game packages a higher priority then other stuff they route..
