    TrayDay reacted to Kirneill in Hey I'm Kirneill! I Optimize Pro Players/Streamers. Ask Me Anything!   
    Lets break this down. I'll explain to you most misconceptions as this is very common. This is how a pro player/coach would analyze what you said as well.
     
    "nearly every encounter is me taking damage the moment the enemy appears on my screen without having any time to ADS or with me shooting first but they end up killing me,"
    - You should be already ADS. you aren't suppose to win gunfights if your enemy has peak advantage or if they are ready before you. Bad Fundamentals
    "Killcam shows them barely getting damaged/shooting me first? " - Kill cams are not an accurate representation of what happened.
    "More importantly, do you know how I can be one of those players that can out run bullets or shoots first and kills first? "- You need to learn how to camera correctly and how to analyze good angles. But you shouldn't rely on it. 
    Ex: I optimized shotzzy and he doesn't rely on cameras. He is just technically gifted and his reaction time is low. This is why he "Jokes" People. The router isn't going to do it for you.
    " I don't think optimising your connection to be the best it can be is the way to go. it feels like it has the opposite effect tbh." - False. All Top Players want the lowest latency possible. Don't try to rely on inconsistency. Rely on fundamentals. This is what happens when you listen to "I feel that its better" post instead of statistical analysis.
    "I have fibre direct to my premises (100Mbps), dumaos shows I ping the servers 6-7ms and in-game it's anywhere from 18-30ms yet it feels like how a 100ms+ match would feel it previous titles."- This is due to bad fundamentals. You are 100 ms behind because you are sprinting into gunfights not centering. The router can't fix things like this. You have to learn and play to improve.
    "DumaOS and OpenWRT" - It's similar if you have an R2. Based off the same platform. Duma is WAY more user friendly.
    "My console is hardwired, play on a 1ms monitor, have the necessary ports forwarded and have an open NAT. Even when I'm the only one using my network I still get a poor gaming experience but other users shouldn't matter as I have my console traffic prioritised above all else." - You only tried to optimize up to the router. There is the modem/gateway -> Node -> Aggregator -> ISP -> Backbone -> How your traffic routes (Least expensive route or lowest cost?). There is way more to it.
    For the netduma, listen to everything Frazer says and the Netduma Staff.
    Trust me
    DON'T GO BASED OFF "It Feels Better Post"
    This will lead to more inconsistency and you will be even more frustrated.
    Remember, Pro Players never blame their tech. They take personal responsibility. Learn to do this and improve. 
    We all think we are the best at what we do and let ego get in the way. Professionals know they aren't the best and put in hard work to compensate for it. This is what makes them great.
    Practice, Improve, Follow the Guides, have fun.
    Netduma didn't make the router to cheat the system. It's to provide you consistency. You aren't suppose to be sprinting and win gunfights. That only works for low skilled opponents. At the highest level, your fundamentals will cost you a tremendous amount of gunfights.
    Hope this helps!
    I hope I don't come off harsh or anything. This is not to criticize you but actually tell you the truth and help you improve.

    TrayDay reacted to Netduma Jack B in ANNOUNCEMENT: New R2 Firmware! (3.0.179)   
    Hi everyone,
    We know what you’re thinking, and we get it.
    We said R2 updates would be frequent (and they will be), but this update ended up enveloping a lot more than we initially expected. That’s frustrating for you and for us too.
    However, we hope you’ll find the wait was worth it – this is a huge update with fixes and changes across the board. Feedback on the R2 has been great, helping us to improve everyone’s experience while fixing specific problems too. The changelog below shows just much work has gone into this update.
    This is the latest in DumaOS and it sets the stage for new features we’ll reveal in the near future. From all of us at Netduma, thanks for your patience, and for caring enough about DumaOS to stay vocal. We hope you enjoy the latest firmware!

    TrayDay got a reaction from Warrior in Connection benchmark test results   
    What I normally do, I have two tabs open. One for QoS and the other for Connection bench mark. If I change QoS, I would personally change the Connection benchmark tab to Device Manager and then click back to Connection Bench mark to refresh the page. But you're more than welcome to refresh the page with either F5 or however you refresh your browser. Again, I used "Set Bandwidth Speeds" method. By, changing my overall bandwidth and not touching the sliders(leaving them at 100%) but I have "ALWAYS" ticked for the congestion controls.
    This is just the method I used, personally. But you could also obtain this with the sliders (as everyone connection is different), but the 'set bandwidth speeds' method worked for me. As stated, my connection is 1gigabyte for both download and upload. But I dropped my overall speed to 860 mbps download and ALL the way to 10 mbps upload. If I used the sliders, it would be 86% for download and 1% for upload if I put my 'set bandwidth speeds' to 1000/1000. 
    I would advise on working on stabilizing one at a time. For example, get the download to be stable for as straight of a line for " Ping Test (Under Load) " as possible then begin working on the upload second. But in my case as seen in the photos, my download wasn't the problem and only the upload, so focused was put there.

    Just to give you an idea of what @scoobypreza were referring to. You could try to get your 'idle' ping as stable as possible.
    Here's a takeaway of what I've done with stabilizing Apex Legends.
    My bandwidth is 1Gigabit download and upload and look at the IDLE on the far right(seen in photo 1). You want to get that as stable as you possibly can

     
    What I did was just reduce my "set bandwidth speeds" to 800mbps download and 10mbps upload and you can see that it stabilized a bit in the IDLE to the right.

    I believe you have the same connection as I do.
    It's always hit or miss with the gateway from ATT.
    As I'm using an alternative method BUT you can use this method to make it simple below.
    Simply log into your ATT gateway router and go to the "firewall" settings and then click "IP Passthrough"
    pretty much copy everything from the picture below and when you get to "Passthrough Fixed Mac Address" choose the mac address under the "Device List" of the R2 router that should be located at the bottom of the router. Once you've choosen the R2 router Mac Address. Click the save. Then restart the ATT gateway first then the R2 second.

    TrayDay reacted to Netduma Adrian in Ping Heatmap suggestion/issue thread   
    Hi everyone, its Adrian from the Dev team again.
    We have just pushed a cloud update for Ping Heatmap, adding Fifa 20 to the list of supported games. It contains only 7 servers, because unfortunately we haven't been able to find more on our internal testing. If someone notices a server that could be added to that category, please let us know and we'll try to add it.
    As always, this is a cloud update, no new firmwares are needed to get it. If you want to get it now, force a cloud update from the hamburger menu on Ping Heatmap. If not, the router will download it automatically over the next 24 hours.
    By the way, we are working on supporting Overwatch, but that game is somewhat tricky and we cannot give you an estimate on where it will be added. Probably will take some weeks.

    Hello R2 users,
    Ping Heatmap is a feature which we will be constantly expanding and improving, and in this thread we'll be taking suggestions for how the feature can be improved.
    If there are any games missing from Ping Heatmap that you feel should be added, please suggest them here. We will do our best to add them to the list! Bear in mind that some games will be easier to add than others.
    Also, if any of the current games on the list appear to be failing to connect, or are producing many mislocated servers, please report that as well. By reporting mislocated servers, you will also help us to improve Geo-Filter.
    Thanks for using DumaOS 3.0!

    I believe it's just my windows 10 on my desktop, actually. Because I've been having complications with the W10 build. Then again,  it could also be the motherboard since it have all the bells and whistle features maximus viii hero. But, good news is, used both phone and laptop and made changes to QOS. All worked immediately when making the changes. So everything is working as intended.

    Netduma know what we want and like. As I can't stress enough to others when telling them about Netduma Team. That they ARE gamers, too. They do, the best they can with the amount of workload. They are not a corporation like netgear. But they are still a business and team none the less and provide the best service they can, professionally. That's why I believe in the Netduma Team.

    I'm still getting set up. I had a few hiccups with not being able to do my usual "dumb switch bypass method" on mitigating the use of my ISP provided gateway. Tried both using the DHCP with MAC of my gateway and also trying Static IP given from ISP. Both failed' to obtain IP. So, I opted in just using the "IP Passthrough" from my ISP Gateway firewall. Possibly just my ISP being  the usual pain in these situations. But, The results, so far so good.
    I've been able to pull a my bandwidth package Download 1000 and Upload 800-950+ on the few speeds tests I've ran so far. Now going to get into giving the router a good go. Update later. But loving how fluid everything is from the GUI and overall performance.
