  1. It smells similar to MW2 days with lots of key developers moving over to Respawn Entertainment. Condrey got a taste of Activision HQ, left a few months later, setup his own developer studio and core developers are jumping ship. Activision's micro management (and greed?) is slowly but surely killing the franchise. I wonder what games 2K Studio will bring to the market? Remember the whole outspokeness from Condrey about Treyarchs $20 skin (or was if $40?). Anyway interesting times ahead, and hopefully for the benefit of all gamers.
  2. I had some serious attempts at logging on to the vigor 130 via router. It works when pppoe connection not established. However, as soon as you are connected to the internet, the vigor no longer recognises/responses to tcp/ip traffic and thus you cannot see stats whilst pppoe connection is active.
  3. I am always going to game on local hardware for FPS games. I can see them pushing cloud gaming for those who want to buy cheap consoles (dumb devices) knowing that all the hardware upgrading is happening in the cloud, so you don't need to keep upgrading hardware. However, you are going to need a serious internet package, a decent ISP, and money to pay for the service. Long term costs are ouch for cloud based, until backbone and ISPs step-up, especially the larger common household ISPs.
  4. I love my One X. Hook it up with an external SSD, and it flies. PS4 is generally off gathering dust. Online services just not up to par. And it looks like Sony has recognised that and will be doing something for next gen only, by working with Microsoft. https://news.microsoft.com/2019/05/16/sony-and-microsoft-to-explore-strategic-partnership/
  5. Oh and additionally there may be a fancy way of connecting to the modem provided your ISP uses vlan tagging ethernet side wise. Requires one to use a tagged and untagged. Will investigate later this week, as that will be real handy.
  6. I use the Draytek Vigor 130, and it gets me 2-3ms lower latency compared to the OpenReach bg612 (standard, not unlocked). I can see all the line stats but only when directly connected to the modem, which is a drawback, when one has line issues (faults), as you have to unplug router. They (draytek) have a feature that will publish info to other draytek routers, haven't checked to see if other public plugins available for other routers to get that info. When my line has been stable (no rain) its stayed in fastpath with 7ms latency for 4wks. The firmware gets regularly updated too. Minor fixes generally.
  7. Well as the beta played well, I bought the black pass edition if we can call it that for both consoles. 😢
  8. I do not normally post this kind of video, but... What do you think?
  9. OH yes this would occur whilst I was streaming... and a rare thing occurred. Sim swore.... Naughty. No longer family friendly.
  10. For those of you who have not seen this video, you may find it helpful. An additional tip is to turn off aim assist (not the auto rotate). I've one many more gunfights since, and lots of other subs have confirmed this tip has helped them. Sim
  11. Wow I'm jealous of your connection. That is some serious bandwidth. The XR500 has two possible reasons why it harder to get good ping. (1) Advanced DPI (2) Quad core processor: 2 at network level, and 2 exposed to user and utilised my higher level OS. This may cause threading issues (multiple tasks running on different processors/cores) that could impact performance. The R1 is a single core CPU.
  12. Merci beaucoup! DPI (deep packet inspection). I believe the R1 does have some DPI, but not as advanced as the XR500 due to the R1 being less powerful hardware. When I had the XR500 (I no longer have one) the best result I could get with the XR500 was 80ms under load using dslreports.com back in Jan/Feb 2018. So it appears you have experienced the same difficulty of not being able to get good low ping with the XR500 (if I understand the written french, as I am very rusty {have not spoken french for years}). The R1 DumaOS, 20ms or less using DSLreports.com. Very happy about that!
  13. I know most of you will not be interested in watching the below video. 😉 But for those of you who are, here it is. Sim
