I realized something while the maintenance went on...ALOT of you seemed to not be able to get in through the browser even after i was back on Pirates so i'm interested to know which you are using
I would never use a browser for any online game. I see a big difference in graphics & overall speed between them. The launcher wins hands down. You also need to remember, everything really depends on the configuration of your system,"Whats inside". Then your ISP "Internet Service Provider" plays the second important role. Full broadband service is the only way to go with online gaming. DSL "High speed phone line" is only half as fast as full broadband. Then you have the elite services & connections like "T1,T2,T3. I'm not too sure about how good Fios "Fibre optic service" is. I dont know the specs atm, I'm doing more homework on it. Anything above basic full broadband will cost you even more. Then they have different speeds to choose from & the price range here in NY starts at $55.00 a month & up to $75.00 for faster up & down stream service just for full broadband. I can only imagine what a T1,2 or 3 connection would cost.
A great configuration & network connection is the key. You can have 2 PC's built exactly the same. Have #1 use full broadband, & #2 use a T1 or better connection. #2 will win the race due to the faster connection. Was this helpfull?
Very helpful and useful information, thanks for sharing that. I'm not computer knowledgeable at all so I enjoy reading posts like this, they really help.
Hi Charlotte, Thank you for the comment. If I can be of help to anyone, I'm greatfull.
I enjoy doing what I do & some things & problems can be a real challenge. Years ago, I didn't know anything about PC's. I was always curious about how they work & the thought of learning anything about PC's didn't come to life for me untill one day I used Google & typed in "How to build a PC". A great deal of knowledge opened up right there with plenty of text info & pictorial diagrams. I dove right in & started learning little by little. I built my 1st PC about 17 years ago.
I felt like Dr. Frankenstien, lol. I created my own notebook with the text info & pictorial diagrams I printed out from the internet & went to work. I'll never forget what happened the very first time I booted it up & went into the Bios & made the correct date, time, & optimized settings & continued on. I sat there at my work bench with my jaw dropped. It was so funny to me when, in my mind I said "It's alive" lol. It worked great. From there I went on to learn even more. You can always learn something new. It never ends.
