    There's only a handful of servers with enough humans playing, but they are usually US servers with 24/7 mic spammers screaming ""oh my god". They'll complain about your ping without realizing there's only about 6 server options in the whole world.

    Just played NS1 last night after lagging horribly in NS2 Alpha. Worked fine for me (Win7 Pro 64-bit), except it was extremely dark. Had to do some command so I could get "Display does not support downloadable gam" to go away.

    I used to be pretty good (at aliens). Was playing on the <BAD> servers last night and I was getting my butt handed to me. I haven't seriously played an FPS in at least 5 years, so incredibly rusty >_< I set all of my settings to what I remembered them being and everything felt kinda weird. Was missing a lot of easy hits and probably got only about 4 kills the hour I played.

    What will NS2 be like? Any aussies here?<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    My perception of Australia might be a liiiiittttleee bit off, but from my point of view most of it sure looks a lot like living a million miles from anywhere in one of the few inhabitable places along the cost, surrounded by a vast ocean on one side and a giant sandbox on the other, both crowed with just about every venomous creature known to man.

    There's a lot of people in south-east asia and a fair number of the youth know some broken english. Brisbane is 20-30 light-milliseconds from south-east asia and the populous areas of China. The index of refraction of an optical fiber is ~1.5; the minimum theoretical ping(round-trip) is thus some 60-90 ms ping at the speed of light in an optical fiber. In the real world, of course, there are buffers and processing delays at every hop that eat a few milliseconds each, the NS2 server eats a few tens of milliseconds to perform calculations, some packets are lost, some take a circuitous route to the destination. The latency probably never will be acceptable between Australia and south-east asia. Looks like your stuck playing only with aussies, kiwis.

    I've played it intensive for a few years, clanwars etc, miss it alot, still waiting for that NS2 release.

    Since I also lost my steam account, I lost acces to NS 1, I want to play it again though. Can you buy it standalone these day's? Or should I buy HL1 and then download the mod for free?

    Dude where were you last night!?!? Haha I haven't played in years d last night I bought the half life pack (I too lost my last account and had to debut everything) and downloaded and installed me2 last night and after some heavy drinking gamed.. I finally found some human players out there but man there are sooo few! And they are playing on these stupid "combat maps" I really dot like them.. I just wanna play the good old fashion ns_siege with commander and building things and creepy silences haha...

    Anyways yeah I think you have to buy half life and then install me2... anyways my screenname is seeker407 you should find me and we should play bro! There's a lot of servers with tons of bots on aliens so we can be marines and at least one server where all the marines are bots.

    Sorry for the typos I am doing this from my phone haha!
