QL pro sub on QL 2.0`? (8 comments)
Posted by snezz @ 04:27 CST, 1 February 2015 - iMsg
Hey guys,

wanted to ask a QL pro sub would be also applied on a potential QL 2.0. I mean IF suddenly QL 2.0 would be released, whether one coulc switch his sub to 2.0 in order to play proper matches etc. If it was not the case the old QL subs would be kind of useless :D

I know this is very hypothetic but maybe someone has some approved info =)

to quake or not to quake (6 comments)
Posted by langley @ 18:18 CST, 31 January 2015 - iMsg
So I have been out of the loop for a while, meaning last time I played was sometime before qlranks got introduced, valiantly, for our displeasure. One might say.

In any case the last few years I have not played any games at all, probably becasue of none being as flawless as quake. And I never could seem to shake the feeling that something's been amiss, and that would be quake!

Playing as close to a perfect duel as you can, with splitsecond item-timing, well thought out ambushes, hearing the hitbeeps go crazy when you catch someone off-guard or in the air with a close to 100% lg. (xerp or not) Rocket to rail combo on a freshly spawned opponent. 3-4x 100dmg rail kills. 15min games. Hearing the announcer say "sudden death, while you know its infinite... Fuck that feels so amazing!

That's what I want, and my question is if it's possible to find any games, I mean is it populated, at all, anymore?

I guess ql will have to work, recent changes or not. Even though I could never seem to adapt from cpma aggro style to conservative ql styles...

Help Ins start his streaming channel (73 comments)
Posted by ProT @ 14:10 CST, 31 January 2015 - iMsg
I miss Ins casting and decided to ask him why he hasn't been streaming some games lately. He told me he just doesn't have the hardware (can't even stream QL properly), but has the free time to stream some hours every day, and would like to do it.

I figured that probably there are more people that feel the same as me, and that may also be willing to put up some money to get Portugal The Amazing Ins back, so I decided to help him out with this campaign. I am also contributing the first €100.

The target of the campaign is €1000, so he can get a proper rig. It's a fixed campaign, so all donations will be refunded if the target isn't met. If it is, the raised amount will be automatically credited to Ins' PayPal account.

In return for your money, you can choose from several perks we've set up to get privileged access to Ins' deep insights and potentially a huge Elo boost!

If you miss his high-level game analysis and commentary, join us and help bring back to all our lives the awesomeness of The Amazing Ins! :)

FK1 vs Mionix (4 comments)
Posted by adzetej @ 08:50 CST, 31 January 2015 - iMsg

i'm currently owning a Zowie FK1, which is really the perfect mouse for me, but since I don't play that much anymore and I'd like to test some other mice aswell I'm considering changing to Mionix Avior SK/7000.
Is there anyone out there using Mionix mice? Are they any good?
Tested the shape of Avior SK before I bought Zowie FK1, and I liked it a lot, and using the same sensor as FK1.

Some feedback from you guys would be cool!

Last night I wanted to plug a flash drive in and noticed there's suddenly a big magnetic force on the both sides of the keyboard of my laptop. Yeah Bitch! Magnets! So strong the flash drive would stick to it. This is new. I figure there's probably a short time limit now before my hard disk dies. Anybody know what the fuck caused this and how to demagnetify laptop? Fucking magnets, how do they work?

I have started with 200 dollars I guess, I was scammed twice (one of them was reversed, the other was my fault), traded tons of items and skins. And after around 2000 trades, there you go, I have really nice and neat inventory with my dream knife.

If some of you QL guys are interested in playing together, Ill be more than happy. Also we can do training in quake again (its been a long time I must be rusty, but in CS im duble AK, so its decent)

DDoS over (?) and still can't connect (54 comments)
Posted by nYmPhets @ 08:51 CST, 30 January 2015 - iMsg

After the DDoS attack, I can't connect to Quake Live, while some of my friends can.

I run the client. It starts loading, then after a while, the following error message pops up:

"We're sorry, but it appears you are having problems connecting to the QUAKE LIVE network. If you are behind a firewall you must make sure that it permits the following connection:

Protocol: TCP
Port: 5222

Contact your network administrator for further instructions, or Click Here to look for help."

Edit: Can't ping either. Request timed out.

I have no router, no firewall, no autologin, already did a flushdns and restarted the modem and the PC several times with no effect.

Do any of you have an idea how to make it work?

Also harosh, potat, cooller, WMO.

Edit 2: There were hiccups and some warpers, but I was able to play a few games this night. I wonder how it will be in the upcoming afternoon.

Ok to kick players who unbalance teams? (63 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 08:59 CST, 28 January 2015 - iMsg
I have a CA server(oKiDoKi) and an Elo ~1600 and play in T3/T4 (my tier fluctuates between the 2). My main objective is to have fun playing Quake with people of similar ability. When I play in T4 I get slaughtered, in T3 I often finish top. So from this I've worked out that the best tier for me would be T3.5 . To try and produce this happy medium I run minobot (minqlbot.dll) which amongst other things allows me to enforce an Elo limit on players. I have arbitrarily set that limit at 1800 to test the waters. I have done this for the last few days and it seems to work ok. The bot automatically puts players above the threshold into spec and won't let them join a team. It also tells them the reason (this is a curtesy as the limit is advertised in the server title)

Problem: New accounts/Fakers.
Sometimes players come on who have modest Elo scores say 1300 and then play like Quake gods. One guy came on yesterday and had done triple the damage of my son (Elo 1700 and rising rapidly. He used to play Bf2 for a pro team and has recently started playing quake a lot.) I checked this guys stats on qlive and discovered his Rg was around 55% and Lg not far behind. Clearly this guy was VERY skilled. Now that's great for him and I respect that , but unfortunately it creates a dilemma for me. People started disconnecting because I simply couldn't balance the teams with him playing. This guys account was about a month old so maybe he just needs to play more games for his Elo to reflect his skill or maybe he's a faker. I don't know. Should I have kicked him in the interest of balancing the teams? I asked him about his real Elo and he said it was 2500 and laughed. I don't know wether he was serious or not. What is the policy on kicking during gameplay? I've heard it could be considered abuse (stat padding in duels and the like) but what about CA? CA is not serious Quake (that's why I play it) it's just a playground. I hate kicking anybody unless it's ansolutley necessary, but as an admin a certain amount of discretion to kick is both desired and required. Your thoughts please.

What would be useful would be a further layer of player profiling based on their skillrating. This variable seems to assess players skill much more rapidly than Elo. My son for example went from new account to T4 in a very short timeframe. I don't think this variable is directly accessible from a players stats however, but it can be found by using /serverinfo on an empty server (not very useful when a new player connects to a busy server). If the bot had this number (assuming a large enough number of games had been played) and the players Elo it could determine with much greater accuracy the true skill of the player.

Proof of poor sensor performance (48 comments)
Posted by MaximilianKohler @ 15:00 CST, 27 January 2015 - iMsg
For everyone who was demanding proof in this thread:

We now have a way to see this, using microe's mouse tester program:

The FinalMouse is the only sensor I've used that has matched the MLT04 as far as accuracy & responsiveness is concerned. So lets take a look at what its graph looks like:

Now lets look at some comparisons I did after detecting some tracking issues in game:

Now keeping in mind how much the (somewhat minor in comparison) deviation shown there made a significant difference in game, lets look at the graphs of the g502 and FK1 (both of which I previously said were shit, with the 502 being somewhat less shit):



See how much they deviate from the line?

P.S. - This isn't perfect, as the graph doesn't really show how the mouse feels ingame (IE: the deviations on the FM graphs were evidence of a different feeling/problem vs what was felt with the other mice). But it does give us some evidence of flaws we can feel while playing.

Many thanks to Microe for his program, and Ino for his screenshots.

Fazz at Quakecon 2015 (212 comments)
Posted by Memento_Mori @ 10:43 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
Quakecon 2015 has been recently announced, and players are starting to arrange their trips to take part in what - for the moment - looks like being the only major event for Quake Live in 2015.

Tonight, Sweden Pelle "fazz" Söderman announced on his stream that he will be going to Quakecon, and participate in the tournaments there. The specific formats are yet to be revealed, but rumors talk about the traditional Duel Masters plus a Team focused tournament.

Fazz is an old school player, with good performances in both duel and TDM. His last apparitions were at Lan Prague, where Sweden 4 old men arrived 2nd cup_silver, beaten by the Russian powerhouse Russia deliberate murder, and at the 125FPS Showmatch agains his countryman Sweden Spart1e which resulted in a 4-3 for fazz.

The participation of fazz to this tournament is sponsored by Switzerland Memento_Mori, who last year supported Belgium Romain "dem0n" Leclercq in his trip to Quakecon.

120/144hz monitors!?1? (46 comments)
Posted by skint @ 07:52 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
At the moment I'm using some Hanns-G 22inch 1680x1050 monitor that my brother left behind when he moved to Korea. Can't remember the model but I'm sure last time I looked at specs it has 5ms response time... probably more.

Anyway is it really worth me getting a 120/144hz monitor? I play a bit of Quakeworld, a bit of Reflex and every now and again Quakelive. Don't know if I play them enough to warrant buying a new monitor? Or does the 120hz make all the newer games smoother/better looking too? I'm under the impression you need to get the FPS to match or something.

Theres the Benq 2411 for about £230 an AOC one for £200 that I've seen. Or a 1080p/60hz/1ms monitor for about £110-120. Or make do with what I've got????????????

Changes to weapon dmg overview (26 comments)
Posted by gojira_ @ 03:31 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
This subject has been beat to death. But time has passed and I enjoy hearing other peoples perspective on esr. You guys are pretty humorous as well as intelligent.

All the weapons in quake are situation specific and breath life into quake as much as the fluidity of movement. The tier level of weapons was essential for single player. Each new weapon you found made you feel much more empowered. In multiplayer it was all about acquiring the most powerful weapons asap, and in the QW days the weapons were the ingredients for a lethal adrenaline dance like no other game. The lightning gun and rocket launcher reigned supreme. Rockets hit for a possible 150dmg per second. LG could hit for a whopping 300dmg per second.

Then of course, our beloved railgun came into the scene which changed the dynamic, but in a good way. No longer could a person run and hide without the likeliness of taking a 100 dmg blow from the railgun. The railgun added a more authoritative stance to the polished aimers of the game. It's cooldown made for an effective vulnerability but it dished out when used wisely and confidently. A new situation specific weapon that was very much welcomed.

As most of us know, the weapons have taken a bit of change over the years but mostly in the QL years. Q3 had an 8dmg per bolt which fired 20 bolts per second, a maximum of 160dmg a second. This was an extreme change but the lg was still as effective as QW. One might say QW's weapons were too lethal, and that's a fair point. I personally loved QW's method but Q3 was refreshing change considering it's rate of fire being much quicker. This was the trend that was followed since, faster rate of fire, less cool down time and less dmg.

QL's method isn't something I could label as wonderful, nor do I dislike it absolutely. I'm in between. Nevertheless, I find myself longing for 7dmg LG and I miss the lethal feeling of 100dmg railgun with longer cooldown. Seemed more beefy that way.

At the 30% accuracy thresh-hold you empty just about all your LG bolts into one opponent. I think newcomers feel pushed away by this. They rage almost always after getting dominated by strong LG players. That's been common since Q3, but it hasn't always taken so long to be dominated; it's dramatic. Quicker death = less time to feel indignation. Longer death = over dramatic and more time to feel helpless and frustrated. Again, players with strong LG have always raged newcomers, but i can't help but feel that it's nerf was a bad decision for both perspectives.

There is much more I could say about other weapons (I miss ssg) that came and went but I'll leave it there. How do you guys feel about the changes to weapons over the years?

How to attempt ultrasmooth demos? (2 comments)
Posted by kevlark @ 01:06 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
I try attempt ultrasmooth demos in q3 and ql many time, but do not have results even in offline mode demo recording. This eliminates the cause of the quality of Internet connection. and it points to the fact that my problem of not knowing the correct settings.

I have tried many combinations of settings in the game configs q3 and ql in offline and online modes. These settings are: com_maxfps, sv_fps,snaps,rate, cl_maxpackets, g_synchronousclients,cl_packetdup, in_mouse, m_filter, cg_filter_angles, cg_smoothclients.

My qame settings of ql: com_maxfps 250, snaps 125, cl_maxpackets 125, sv_fps 125, cg_smoothclients 1, rate 25000, m_filter 31, cg_filter_angles 16.

I have a fairly powerful computer for q3 and ql, so the problem is not in the low power of my pc. I have a stable 250 fps in the game, rarely drop below 250 fps for unknown reasons.

I experimented myt demos -, and realized that the player has smooth demo, I was not able to achieve the same smooth video in same videorecord config for my demos recording even in offline mode.

I have examples of smooth ql demos:

Who knows how it is achieved and smooth demos and gameplay , that will help me please.

Myt , dragoniz, vZ.ZER042H prompt me your game settings please if you are reed this post.

WMO left/right MB/switch (4 comments)
Posted by larix @ 00:56 CST, 26 January 2015 - iMsg
these fuckers are soldered onto the pcb. i got this mouse from dacheng2009 on ebay like 3 weeks ago and the left mouse button has completely stopped responding (still audibly clicks perfectly fine)

opened it up to see if anything was broken and nope, pressing the switch directly will give the sweet button clicking sound but it doesn't work.

can't remove it without a soldering iron

thinking about replacing it with the middle button like this guy did:

anyone know of another fix or why this shit is happening other than its a chinese knockoff?

anyone in Brooklyn, NY want to lend me their soldering kit?

i also opened up my broken zowie fk to try and fix the switches in those just for the fun of it, but those copper fucking springs are the devil's work.

The popular science-entertainment programme featuring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage is taking a wild turn, next week's special will give the universe of DooM Doom a shot - debunking myths for your ever present pestering questions. How does a BFG actually work? How can I survive on another planet? How do I get rid of those pesky satanic aliens?

The team will be joined by id id Software's own Tim Willits, the show will be hosted on the Discovery Channel at 08:00 CST, 31 January 2015. The team will use the Doom 3 BFG edition as a reference point.

Rumors has it that this could hint on a new Doom release date, maybe Bethesda has something in the oven and they're using this event to promote their upcoming title. Those who preordered Wolfenstein: The New Order should be the first to receive their beta keys, as stated in the previous Doom 4 announcement.

I'm not big fan of moba games. Also in my oppinion threre is no reaon to play team-based games a lot if you don't have a team...

I quite like dota 2 or csgo but without proper team is not that good. That's why I pretty like Hots and it's casual (?) way.

- fun
- matches are short
- heroes from blizzard universe
- skins, not that important, but much better than other moba games
- i don't really care if I win or lose
- matches are more even, I think
- easier to make 'comeback' than other moba games
- good to play short match after work
- more team based? less carry based?

Seems to be more casual than other games, but who cares.

any1 play it?

Minobot elo gateway problem (2 comments)
Posted by barrybumcheeks @ 09:25 CST, 23 January 2015 - iMsg
I have installed minqlbot to manage my server. The main reason for the bot was to create an 'elo gateway' so that only players with an elo between say 1400 and 1800 were allowed to connect. My own elo is in the 1600 range so this seemed like a reasonable place to start. The bot seems to work but the elo restriction function doesn't. In the config file the variables called MinimumRating and MaximumRating determine the elo gateway. I have set these but to no avail? Has anyone else had experience with this bot and knows how to configure this aspect? Also someone mentioned another server management bot called mitchbot.
Where do I get mitchbot as I could not find it with Google. Do I have the correct spelling? The reason for installing Minobot was because I'm T3 one day and T4 the next. I used to use skill matching but my server would end up with many 2000+ elo players. Sometimes even 2300+! The skill range in T4 is far to great for an average player like myself. An elo gateway seems much more sensible as the skill range would be more limited. Any help in sorting out the elo problem with Minobot or a link to mitchbot would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Had 2 custom icemats made (18 comments)
Posted by fisT @ 08:48 CST, 23 January 2015 - iMsg
So after drejk generously sent me his icemat, I instantly fell in love with the perfect blazing fast yet surgically precise frosty glass surface.

However, the icemat is only 30cm wide, which is really arduously small for my sensitivity of 35-40cm. I don't like to lose my tracking or have to swipe in the middle of fights.

So I went to a glass factory, and talked with the guys there for a while and had myself made two of these babies, aka FISTPAD :D (poor image quality)

Unfortunately you can't tell from the pictures but the surface is the same amazing extremely fine grainy surface as on an icemat.

They have the exact same surface as an icemat, except I can get them any size I want. I got mine to be 50x40cm while I had another made for Sietse who's willing to pay for his in the size of a qck+.

For this size of a glass plate I also took a slightly thicker glass so it's less likely to break, and it feels pretty solid so far.

It also tracks exactly as well as an icemat, extremely well. Except on zowie mice.

Contemplating having a bit of a PC upgrade.

Budget £500 and with that I just need a mobo/cpu/gpu/psu

Pretty certain I'll go for a Corsair semi-modular PSU but if there's something better...

I have a m-atx case, 1 ssd, 1 hdd, 8gb corsair vengeance ram and Asus Xonar sound card to use with it.
I might spend about another £100 ish to get a new case and a 1tb hybrid drive to replace the old hdd and just fancy a new case.

8gb ram will be fine for a while wont it?

Quake dead? - Thats why! (31 comments)
Posted by wwwAnyBoy @ 23:43 CST, 22 January 2015 - iMsg
All pins are made of books on psychology

1. People are social. We need the fellowship and fun. Fun are friends.

But no friends in the game 1x1. Only you and your enemy. No communication with the enemy.
No sociality. Only you and the enemies around you on the servers.

2. People do not like to strain and learn.

Quake difficult game. Need a lot of strain. Player Level has a wide margin. ELO 700-2700.
The difference of 400 ELO is a 100% victory.

Simple calculations:
700 + 400 + 400 + 400 + 400 + 400.

Have you ever tried to come to the gym and immediately lift 170 pounds post?

- Why are new to the game is to get on the strong opponents?
- Why is the game allows it?
- Why are next to each nickname in the game do not have his ELO?
- Why all the players have to download scripts from the internet to see the ELO?
- Why do I need You can simply tie ELO next to each nickname.

3. Referring to the experience of other online games. What is needed Quake. Screenshots examples.. plz download and put in thread

Ninox never came, BST gave up? (42 comments)
Posted by stcne @ 10:37 CST, 22 January 2015 - iMsg
I pre ordered the Ninox Aurora back in november. While my order got paused for the massdrop, I finally got a supportticket answer that my mouse was being sent.

Unfortunately for me, the package got lost somewhere between in UK, Denmark or Sweden. Amazon, which handles the delivery, takes no responsibility as they respond 'talk to the seller' and none of the above mentioned countries postal service can actually say where the package is. UK say it passed on to Denmark, first call to Swedish postal service says it is in Denmark,Denmark says it is in Sweden and second call to Sweden is responded with that it isn't in Sweden and not in Denmark. In short, I'm screwed and they all tell me 'talk to the seller'.

All that said, I cannot get hold of anyone at Ninox. Multiple tickets at their homepage when logged in doesn't get an answer. Mailing Ninox have yet to render me an answer either. PM'ing BST on Reddit doesn't have any effect and I cannot PM on this page (I'm not allowed to yet or something along those lines).

The answer I end up with is that I am screwed by Ninox for 50 Euro (price+delivery+taxes) and I have to deal with it.

Does anyone else have any idea what I can do to get myself the money back or the mouse itself?

TL;DR Paid for Ninox Aurora, it never came, possibly lost in delivery somewhere in Europe and Ninox will not respond. 50 euro lost. Halp.

Mousepads and High Sens vs Low Sens (76 comments)
Posted by itsDANNY @ 16:44 CST, 21 January 2015 - iMsg
Hi bodyevery,

I've played high sens for nearly 10 years now and only very recently have I realised that a lot of professional gamers play at low sensitivity. To provide an approximation, 2.5cm-3cm is what it takes for a 360. My accuracy averages at 20%-22% from overall gameplay, some games peak up to 35%. In pub games, I generally tend to come first.

My question is, is it worth to switch over (gradually or almost instantaneously) to low sensitivity? Will my in-game performance gradually get better?

To provide some context to why I ask this now is recently I have been wanting to purchase a mouse pad, and only then has this made me become more 'competitive' in a way and hence I wish advantage myself in every way possible. So, yes, I have never used a mousepad and am still unsure if I even need one. So far, looking at the QcK / Goliathus pads.

Thanks for the help!

Visual style inspired by minimalistic architecture concepts like

yeah Im aware that I have a lot of cut corners but I guess you dont run with such high speeds at home.

Heavy vs Light mouse (23 comments)
Posted by ratman1337 @ 19:25 CST, 18 January 2015 - iMsg
Wouldn't a heavy mouse offer more control over a very light mouse as you are less likely to over compensating aim. I have a g100s and removed the weight and replaced the mouse feet and I'm wondering if it was the wrong choice. It's almost like it's hard to aim pixel perfect now because a little to much force can cause my aim to be off where as with a heavy mouse and a slow glide I had more feedback from my mouse movements.

Can we finally accept why Quake failed (642 comments)
Posted by Disrepute @ 05:54 CST, 18 January 2015 - iMsg
Can we finally accept that listening to organisers who wanted to reduce costs, and the money hungry egos of a few top players all demanding duel was the way forward, COMPLETELY and UTTERLY KILLED the game?!

LoL has shown the world that team games are where it's at, but hey we didn't even need that. The intelligent few among us have been saying for maybe a decade or more that focusing on duel was a mistake.

Nobody plays duel. It kills the community. No community means no players. No players means no audience. No audience means no sponsors. No sponsors means no money. No money means no events. No events means no interest. No interest means no further development.

Sure we all enjoy the show-piece of duel. Two of the best players fighting it out so we can name a BEST INDIVIDUAL PLAYER. But in reality it’s just like the ballon d'or in football. It's vanity.

So Fatal1ty got rich. Good for him. But Quake is dead.

Having a shitty stream every weekend showcasing the same 20 players will not build a game. It will KILL IT. We all mocked painkiller because nobody wanted to play it. But did anybody really think why? Was it really because it was a buggy game? No. It was because it was all focused on duel. 90% of people do not want to play duel.

Most people have an ability to be social. Most want to play with friends. Most don't want the insane pressure of everything being down to them.

Think of every arena shooter that has been made off the back of Quake. They all focus on duel and they all FAIL. Reflex will fail too.

Please all you duel supporters WAKE UP that YOU have killed quake. The major mistake id made was to listen to the community and focus on duel. Quake SHOULD BE A TEAM FOCUSED GAME. Just like LoL or CSGO are that are now killing it once a broader audience has access to watch.

I hate every one of you duel only supporters that killed my game.

Duel should actually be removed completely and the development team for the next quake should focus around a single team mode. Something with an objective that sets a focus on the viewpoint.

Just watched this... (Need to be UK or get a damn prox)

Interesting. My two cents:

- Why would we care if esports is actually considered a "sport" in the traditional sense?

- I don't think the whole "esports" discussion makes sense. People like specific games. Some more than 1 but very few like the WHOLE of esports.

- Games change all the time to be completely different. Sports do not. There is no applicable history to be built if they change often, so I think it will be hard to build a lifetime fan like you would in a sport.

- The growth and money seems more to do with broadcasting (Why did we pick Quake to stream and why did we quit!) and twitch of which many major broadcasts could be considered casual gaming. So isn't it more about entertainment than competition now. 'Big Brother' is technically a competition, but 99% of the show is just about entertainment (debatable).

120/144Hz monitors similar to S23A700D? (15 comments)
Posted by Pharton @ 08:34 CST, 17 January 2015 - iMsg
I previously used the Samsung S23A700D, a glossy 120Hz that somehow performed well in the aspects of Hz, input lag, and image quality. Does anyone here know a monitor similar to this? The ASUS VG248QE is popular but I read that there are potentially BAD problems, like its backlight bleeding and poor color quality. I don't want need IPS-level colors, just decent ones like in the S23A700D.

I don't want a CRT.

Any suggestaroonis?

Reflex update released, netcode changes (244 comments)
Posted by Teen Queen @ 23:08 CST, 16 January 2015 - iMsg
Refex developers released a rather hefty update that plays a vital role in online FPS titles. - the netcode has been reworked, Ion Cannon (The quake lightning gun equivalent) damage has been lowered from 9 to 7 along with its knockback, spawn system has changed, hit sounds have been updated and plenty bugs were squashed. A snippet from the overview dealing with netcode
"The new Reflex netcode uses a combination of extrapolation and backwards reconciliation in attempt to keep what you're seeing consistent across clients and servers. This lag compensation has an upper limit of 80ms -- if you have more than an 80ms ping, you'll need to lead by ping - 80ms. I.e, if your ping is 100ms, you'll need to lead by 20ms.
Our backwards reconciliation has the same limit -- if your enemy has a ping of over 80ms, they won't be able to shoot you from 500ms in the past."
You are welcome to give it a shot, report feedback to developers and let them know how the netcode feels right now - if you're pinging below 80 it should be quite noticeable.
