Well, since 3 days I have played in rated rooms and I'm VERY angry!
Why 50% of the time when I get the upper hand in a 1v1 suddenly I have "Problem communicating with X" on my scree. And after 20 sec , I'm dropped from the game and lose it?

Is ist guenuine cheating or do I have to change my cable modem?

Thx,

Lucifer

euh, keep your stick on whatever you want

Lucifer, I have had more problems recently than I have in a long time. Something is out there but I'm not sure its nuking since my winsock files are fine. If someone has more info, please explain. I do know that if the game gets laggy my chances are much greater to drop, and ADSL line, which is 2 twice as fast as ISDN.

It looks like a general internet problem. Lots of people have been having problems connecting and playing AOE/ROR. The problem extends to quake2 and half-life. I know cause I have had the same problem. I am using a cable modem as well. Just curious as to whether you are connection throught the @home network or someone else.

If it's just a general Internet problem, then I want to know why it happens frequently in rated rooms, but seldom if ever happens to me when I play in unrated rooms.

One time I played a multiplayer game alone (with no other human players) and during the game I got the turtle and the colored fireballs.. And this is with NO network traffic!

We routinely get sync errors on my 100MB network.

Same w/ me Baal, I have had 4 times the problem in rated rooms than non-rated. What's even worse, due to disconnects my rating is suppressed, I then get blamed for smurfing and they want to know my other names. This is the only name I got (well for the most part) and I'm not at the level of play that I would consider that I could even smurf.

I would expect that the if the level of competition is higher that means more units being built and more general activity going on in a game. This translates to more network traffic and more CPU utilization and therfore more drops.

If you're loosing a game and do not want to have your rating to go down, Press ALT-TAB to get out of the game. Then you press CTRL-ALT-Delete and you "end task" you're game... this will provoque the "problem communating with" problem and The zone's server will not recognise you intentionaly terminated your game. He will give you an incomplete... I've tried it once at AoE and it worked. You can still do that at chess but after 5 times you loose 100 points... So you can do that once in a while... Every 50 completed games, you're "incompleted games" counter decrease by 1... so, I theory, you can do this trick 2% of the game without being penalized...

Mic, this is a forum for learning to be better not cheating. Further, when you do disconnect, guess where those points go to? They go onto your teammates that stuck it out. I had 2 of my teammates play the disc game, I took the whole loss, 15 point hit.

So a word to the wise, I hope you don't play w/ that name, because no one here will play w/ you.

I hope your next post isn't on how to nuke.

Did I ever say I was cheating?

Lucifer was asking a question, I answered him... period. Do not over-react O_Captian, since you seem to assume I am a cheater, I will have to tell you formally I AM NOT A CHEATER

thank you very much Mr The over-reactionnary who's assuming stuff

Phil, 366 post is quite impressive. I'm all ears on any lessons or comments you have. However, if you want to endorse Mic's comments, I am in disagreement with you. If you feel that I have stepped on your toes by stating I don't agree w/ unethical tactics, then maybe you haven't learned much from all of those posts.

UUUUUUmmmmmm maybe I am confused or I don't understand the posts below? If I am losing a game, things are hopeless and it is time to concede defeat. I say "gg" and RESIGN. I believe it is poor sportsmanship to disconnect. The better player earned the victory. :P~~ to disconnectors. Learn to accept defeat honorably and your victories will be sweeter.

Good Luck in the Deathlands,
Tenaciti

O_Captian
of course you realize Biodigestor and me are the same forumer.

Let me clarify myself, I think you have not understood me correctly.

I was NOT discussing about the morale issues of the disconnection feature. I was NOT promoting any cheater. I was/am NOT encouraging people to cheat. I was NOT saying I am using disconnection to cheat. I am NOT cheating.

I was JUST explaining the technical mechanisms of the disconnection so people UNDERSTAND why it happens very often in rated rooms. I DISAPPROVE such pratice.

Do you understand I was talking about this at a pure technical point of view? Do you understand I was not emitting a morale opinion? Do you understand I do not like cheaters? Do you understand???!!!

dead on Tenaciti, there is only one way to free the world of cheating and that is that the cheaters realize they they gain nothin by cheating someday a 1500 player will kick the *****out of the 1900cheaterplayer anyway, basically when all lamness stop, so simple yet so hard.
