Yeah I don't see what the big issue is. Whatever - their loss.
One thing that happened this afternoon on a busy server is I think someone started pinging me or something.. I kept getting the same Windows7 noise you get when you plug a USB peripheral device in, and everytime it would just freeze my character for like 10-15 seconds and of course I'd get killed. It would just be once or twice at first, then a whole heap of them in a row.. I had to quit out of the server as my character was just frozen while the play went on around me.
I had a similar thing happening with Company of Heroes, but in that case it was the stupid Relic Downloader - the idiots set up some automatic patch service that uses torrents shared by users, rather than a central downloading point. The only way to disable it was to change the name of the folder the service was in (inside steam).
Anyone experience the same.. I played the same server with no issue yesterday, but today it was unplayable because of that 'whatever it is'.
..edit: just been playing there again last hour or so and no problem.
..FYI, the server was **HELLZ HARDCORE** ..hardcore mode, no ammo, no crosshairs, no spotting.. fun :-)
