GamingThread Mike Z (Skullgirls creator) explains why wi-fi sucks for gaming
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Hostility over a series of posts
If you're going to start slinging insults I think we're done here. Douche bag.The premise of this thread, and the video that was linked stated Wifi sucks for gaming. What exactly has been offered? The dev in the YouTube video doesn't prove shit. Honestly 9th graders would be thrown out of science class if they turn up with that kind of amateur hour "evidence". He shows packet loss, but with no control to demonstrate it is a result of wifi. He shows rollback, but again, with no evidence that it's a result of wifi and/or not a result of about a dozen other common issues that cause clients to suffer packet loss. It's honestly embarrassing how terrible the video is. Certainly nobody in this thread has shown any more to substantiate his claim. There is a lot of conjecture and hearsay, but I don't see any objective or empirical evidence to back up the which is I've attempted to provide my experience as a counter point. To demonstrate, anecdotally, that wifi doesn't have to "suck for gaming". Unfortunately the neck beards have decided that unless you're hard wired you're ruining gaming for everyone and you should be quarantined immediately. And people wonder why gamers have a bad rep.
