Hello, I'm Weaver. I'm going to be recruiting people for our west coast race team. This race team will be formed with the mindset of getting demigods, so this isn't a casual team. We are west coast based, so we will be doing the later race tiers (2pm, 7pm). If you're interested in joining, please review these requirements:
-Must have vast experience with races. You must have experience being in the top 5 of your class in multiple races. There will be no exceptions to this. I will be checking PoE statistics.
-You will have to be able to make the race time frame we play within. We are currently doing the 2pm races and the 7pm races (PST Timezone). We will also be doing practice runs possibly later than that. We won't be considering anyone who cannot always make these races.
-You must be US or Canada based. This is just because of ping issues when playing with players who have created separate foreign instances that cause abnormally high ping.
-You have to own a working microphone, be able to speak, and able to use Mumble software. Voice chat is not optional. We currently have a server on mumble.
We need 3 players right now. If you're interested, send me a pm on these forums titled "I Am Interested In Joining Your Race Team" to show that you've read the thread and understand the requirements, and I'll get back to you. No response probably means you aren't right for the team.
Well I was looking forward to this, but the bloody game keeps dissconectng me every minute. Wasn't happening to me before the race. Doesn't happen to me in other games. Just this race. My first race. As if the game is saying "fk you".
Bad desync vs hillock, the zombies nearby were all teleporting and attacking in idle animations and hillocks attacks and damage werent corrolated at all. Worse in terraces and flats, monsters teleporting all over with tons of ghost damage being taken. Became terminal in submerged as i was about to die on an empty screen, and i had to bail and rerun from flats. Stayed bad all through climb~gate, became terminal again in shipyard and i died with no monsters within attack range. /oos moved my corpse almost 2 screens back into a group that shouldnt have been anywhere near large enough to trap me serverside.
Shame too, was on track to hit merveils area in under 30 mins without the initial bail. +1 bow gems drop at ledge wouldve made sure of that. Oh well!
- I really wish you guys knew how to fix these desync issues; that or were willing to do a ground-up client-server code rewrite. I have less and less desire to play when its a coinflip as to whether the game is actually going to work at any given time, especially during races. It doesnt help at all that theirs been zero improvement since i started playing almost a year ago.
I got shit on in this race, 4th witch. I was on pace to do really well until I encountered the most troll anger I have ever seen in my life, added about 3 minutes to my merveil kill. Either way gg wp to the 3 (!!) witches that beat me today, and to everyone else.
