    Dks pvp and Internet speed

    Post by The Once-Ler on Tue Apr 16, 2013 9:32 pm

    I was wondering if people would be willing to post their Internet type and speed as it relates to their Dark Souls PvP experience. I currently have cable modem with speeds of 20 Mbps. I have very little problems with lag or warping on dks as a result of the speed. Due to the skyrocketing cost of my Internet however (and my fury with their ever-rising fees etc.) My Internet cost literally doubled this month. I am revisiting the dsl idea (with fixed cost for 5 years) but the speed is 10mbps instead of 20. Still says it is good for online gaming, but I have been Leary of dsl speeds and I don't want to totally mess up my dks online experience, especially with dks2 just around the corner. So my question is how fast is good enough? Thanks in advance for your responses.

    Call your cable provider. They often have unlisted options for lower speeds at lower prices. They may advertise 2 or 3 but there are often 2 or 3 hidden tiers at much cheaper. The throughput on a cable or fiber optic at 10 is going to be more than dsl at 10 which means that you won't suffer near as much slowdown when multiple devices are using the web. I downgraded that way to a much cheaper plan and I can host FC's and 2v2's and stream at same time with no issue.

    Thanks E! So are you on cable at 10 Mbps then with no issues?
