    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    To my knowledge the net Duma team are a U.K. based company and market all over the world including the EU. Look I’m not suggesting anything however when reading about false advertising the practice we’ve endured as consumers are within the realms of false advertising. Especially with the dead silence recently. For anyone who is interested: In particular this Act protects consumers from misleading advertisements and ensures that trade is fair. Under the Act it is an offence for an advertiser/trader to make false claims about goods, services or prices. ... EU laws also ensure that misleading advertising is forbidden in all Member States... Careful guys people could have claims...

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    To the people who are saying buy the netgear, this was my plan I had decided to drop the R1 a while back. Then the devs changed my mind when they announced anti jitter and other features would be available exclusively to the R1. But even that seems like a lie, panic response to an angry fan base. It’s typical netduma at this point uncertain to say the least. This could all be over if they come out with an honest answer and make it clear where we stand with the R1 if they say it’s not happening then the wait is over I’d happily go out and buy the netgear. I’m not willing to spend £270 on a router which isn’t getting the features that were advertised 3 years ago. If the netgear gets exactly the same planned/promised updates I’d buy it tomorrow however from what we were told before this isn’t the case. We need more transparency and then people can make their minds up! This is one of this companies major shortcomings.

    In light of him being a spammer yes that is acceptable, however, if you’re going to remove every comment which may put off potential customers you need to remove thousands of comments and ban 100s of people. I believe as customers we reserve the right to review the product on how we deem fit. Some people like something others don’t that’s life. What’s dangerous is when people with links to the company start muddying the water and removing “legitimate” negative comments about the product in order to boost or maintain sales... That diminishes the credibility of the company and causes doubts about the product. I’ve blasted virgin media and EE for years and not once were my comments removed or hidden. Also naming alternative products to people shouldn’t merit a ban either, I won’t name the router that was mentioned in the removed post but the guy had a point the brand he mentioned does do what he said. Instead of banning people out of fear of losing customers win them back by delivering on promises is what I say but that’s just me.

    It should be pretty obvious how to post without getting suspended / deleted, if people think "I wonder if I'll get suspended" then they're probably at risk of getting suspended. I can sympathise with you on the abusive comments part however this isn’t always the case there have been times when I read someone’s comment while traveling and when I came back to quote it at a later time the comments had already been removed. The most recent example being yesterday, a guy commented saying after reading the forum comments he’s decided to not buy the R1 until the update situation was resolved. That was it he didn’t swear, nor was he aggressive it was a reasonable post. I come back on this morning and what do you know his comment and 2 other peoples comments have been removed. Either the rules are unclear or somone is abusing his or her power. Why not shed light onto what’s acceptable and what isn’t?

    Thnx for locking the previous post Big_dog, I politely posted in off topics to avoid pissing you mods off but whatever, I’ll post it here instead then. As everyone already knows the R1 update controversy surrounding a netgear product. After reading pages and pages of people going at it, it’s become clear some people do not understand why other members were so annoyed. I was actually happy the deal with netgear went live as it meant more experience for the Duma team and a better product for the rest of us in the future this was never the issue! The problem was that we were kept in the dark about the R1’s update. Had someone came out earlier and explained there would be delays none of this would have happened. Or a second scenario had the update come live maybe a month after the net gear news I’m sure people would have been more understanding. However to suggest April 17th and then not deliver, plus to announce more delays on the day of the deadline was a terrible move and the silence since has pushed people over the edge. Some people might say so what? Use what you have now, and that’s fair to an extent what these people do not understand is under what circumstances was the R1 bought? Well myself and for many other (I’ve read) the R1 was bought on the back of this update being announced in late 2016 or early 2017. I bought into the idea of anti jitter/spike which we’ve had no news on since. So when you advertise these sorts of things and get people excited into buying your equipment and not deliver on time (in fact over a year late) you’re going to get backlash... but the worst out of the lot is how people have been getting banned when they voiced their frustration on the matter. In my case I used to be a sky customer and the sky wouldn’t let me use a new router and when I finally worked out how to get around it, I suffered nat issues so I decided to ditch sky and turn to virgin media where I was free to use what ever I wanted, then I realised the speed I was paying for was not supported by the Duma unless I turn some features off which defeated the purpose of having the Duma so I cancelled virgin and switched to BT. I wanted the very best online experience (which is why I bought the netduma in the first place) so I decided to splash out on a reliable modem. Which cost me £80 at the time. A few months passed and family started complaining about the wireless. Kept dropping out and speeds weren’t great and I came back to the forum to saw people complaining of similar things. So again I went out of my way to buy the very best on the market at the time to get family off my back and I bought the asus-88u cost £330. So in total I’ve spent a lot to have the Duma on. The Duma it’s self wasn’t perfect nor was it cheap and the hardware for that price was laughable but we all know that but I tried to accommodate it as much as I could as I was seeing the team on Facebook and Twitter were responsive and kept updating us about the new features. Only to find out a year down the line this is what I was looking forward to... Edit : Other biggest selling point was the geo filter I’ve found out recently that I may not have even needed it as call of duty seem to place me on local servers 90% of the time with geo filter turned off. (Not off but open all the way as fortnite was giving me issues a few weeks back) which made the whole experience feel like a huge waste of money and time. I hope this sheds some light on to be devs who have been non exsistsnt since April and the forum mods who delete comments and ban people. This is why we are pissed off.

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    Sal 09 Jan 2018 I really don’t know what to make of this... Clearly netgear are now calling all the shots whenever people mentioned the update they got shut down with arrogant comments like “it will be ready when it’s ready” we’ve been fed silly pictures with click bait titles and then this is announced looool someone called it earlier in the post “this is EA level evil” and I agree. Nice way to s**t on your loyal fan base, I can see now the netduma is going to be shafted and I’m certain netgear will call all the shots...This post takes me back... I was bitterly disappointed back then however, even I hadn’t imagined it would be this bad... BTW it’s not cool to block people for voicing their opinions.. warning do not post anything about R1 on their Facebook page it’s an instant ban as I have found out...

Nice way to s**t on your loyal fan base, I can see now the netduma is going to be shafted and I’m certain netgear will call all the shots I can see certain features being netgear exclusive and netgear will most likely get first pick in updates just look at the current situation as an example, before anyone from Duma disagrees all I’m going to say is “it’s ready when it’s ready” which translates to; it’s ready for netgear but yeah you guys have to wait until April... whatever man on the bright side I can finally drop this trash router and get something with decent specs like the netgear.

    WW2 on WiFi

    It’s not your connection dude I wouldn’t change anything if I’m honest. Just play an older cod you’ll see the difference I go back to iw get like 9kd as an average over 5 games.... constantly dropping nukes it’s a similar situation on bops3 as well minus the nukes but I am getting like a 4 kd average. Come back to ww2 it’s like 15-2 one game then same lobby with 2 or 3 players change and I’m going 13-15 the next. It flip flops until I say f*** it and go play a game that works.
  11. If I’m paying £50 for this I will call out the crap that needs to be changed, people like you are the reason developers are taking people for a ride you can sit back and enjoy I will keep calling the bull shit out. The days of being a fan boy are long gone grow up. Didn’t mean to hurt your feelings by insulting your game
  12. As if there weren’t enough reasons to hate this game here’s another... Apart from the terrible lag, inconsistent guns, piss poor maps just to name a few but the sheer laziness and the awful lack content in this game has me wondering how on earth people actually consider this garbage good? We thought the number of maps was a joke (clearly quality over quantity... lol nope) was bad but hasn’t anyone noticed that half of the emotes are the same under different name? The armour skins are the same with more dirt on it and labelled epic and let’s not talk about the 1000000 pistol grips yet people are going out of their way to thank SHG?? How??? I have a good amount of epic and heroic guns, the issue is they are exactly the same as the base variant with a bonus xp patch they didn’t even bother to change the iron sights or give it a fresher look so what exactly is the point?? Well it disrupts the statistics and prevents people from bringing up the argument of “you have little to no chance of getting variants” by flooding the loots with useless bullshit and labelling them as epics or heroics they have given themselves a platform to deny the statement above as well as giving you the feeling that you can get the dlc guns too so you just spend more. I mean yesterday I opened a few winter drop and rare drops, got the usual bs a few grips and the odd emote, go into emotes to check it out and I find a huge list of around 20+ I went through the list i kid you not, 50% of them were exactly the same emote with a different name and branded epic... it’s the same story with the armour skins, you get the same skin but with a different colour belt (barely visible) that qualifies it to be an epic lol... btw can any of you actually see your pistol grips or see an enemy’s pistol grip? So what exactly is the point from the players perspective what use does it have? It’s just another way of them making useless shit to flood the loot system and give players the brief joy getting an epic item which will serve no purpose and something that no one will see. I’d rather them flood the loots with camos at this point at least the camos would be more useful. It’s time we look past the boots on the ground skin, this game is among the worst cod titles to date and I’m already done with it... IW shits all over this trash...

    WW2 strict mode

    Ok so I don’t know about any updates or anything new but last night the game ran amazingly! I didn’t change any setting or touch anything, finally completed that damn 25 kills contract I’ve had since launch lol. Every game +20 and average kd over 5 games (when i bothered to check was +6) best kd being 38-1 other one death being my fault as I thought I was close to a nuke decided to rush. But here is the strange part the friend I usually play with who loves the game and said he had never seen the connection play this badly he couldn’t even bring himself to play after 4 tries.(This seemed to be consistent with other friends experience few complained it had completely changed on them and the 3 who have been suffering with me yesterday said the game felt like something new). Another great indication I have which shows I subconsciously felt the connection being good as I started rushing more my spm went from my usual 250s to averaging around 390 yesterday with the odd 500+s So I have no idea what is going on all I can suggest is less populated servers as I hear on the news that many people are still without power due to snow in the U.K. which probably isn’t the cause but can’t wait to try again tonight.
  14. Why don’t you use flat Ethernets? They can be run under carpets and are trip hazard free (or greatly reduce risks)
  15. The bottom 2 links are how my games play 95% of the time can’t take this game seriously anymore.
