Thread: Tired of laggers. Possible to Cap Upload Speed for host? | Forums

  1. #1
    I'm seeing it way too much and I tired of people cheating by uploading on their PC or using lag switches to make them jump all over the place.

    So I was wondering if it's possible to limit the upload speed on the host's side so cheaters who use lag switches or uploading will lose connection due to the host's limited capability?

    I know it may cause some issues like non-cheaters dropping out due to high ping and not-so-good connections. But what does everyone think? Is there any way to combat those cheaters?

    There's nothing you can do.

    I've seen it a lot too. I was even in a room the other evening when I was screamed at for mentioning in the lobby that people on the other team were doing it. "So f***ing what, it doesn't even f***ing effect anything anyway" was the jist of their defence.

    Sad pathetic little people that enjoy so few real victories in their lives that fictional ones have become important to the point that they rob themselves of the satisfaction of attaining them by cheating it away from you.

    Chin-up. There are enough of us left that it isn't too big a problem. Besides, I consider the game void as soon as I encounter it, so other than the time wasted in the remainder of the match it's pretty harmless.

    All they would need to do is kick anyone that has a ping of a above 200ms for more than 10 secs.

    IE:
    You will be kicked in 10 seconds(High ping)
    9
    8
    7
    6
    5
    4
    3
    2
    1
    Gone

    If anyone has a ping of over 200 they should either buy a descent connection or stop paying for live.

    Here is a ping test to comcasts website:
    <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
    ping -c 5 -s 56 -i 1 www.comcast.com 2&gt;&1
