  1. This went down this morning, you shouldn't notice any disruptions. This morning some key dns root-servers were rolled, if you haven't noticed issues yet I doubt you will.
  2. I wouldn't put much emphasis on in-game ping measurements, a game's UDP packet payload is measuring much more than just network latency. I can skew my own supposed in-game ping simply by modifying rate, snaps, fps. But this doesn't actually skew my network latency... Typically in-game ping (or rather latency) measurements are mostly accurate but there are too many variables that can easily throw those numbers off and skew the actual value by up to about 20 -/+ Even as 3Fingers pointed out the only difference is a ELO setting and the port, sure it is possible a switch or router somewhere is balancing you across a different link based on the port difference but its likely something specific to the game itself (fps, number of players, lots of plasma etc, or perhaps network congestion) And the choice of a OS for the server is not going to skew you by 10 milliseconds (local network latency+traversal up to layer7/application from device to device is < 0.1ms), otoh something like iptables which doesn't scale well with 1000+ rules and high packet rates can skew things quite a bit. Resort back to testing with ping and/or mtr (windows has winmtr, this is a tcp based traceroute)
  3. Indeed good network path from NYC area, many of these hops are my own net/provider (half of them) $ mtr ash.madhouseservers.com --report Start: Mon Sep 3 17:04:35 2018 HOST: kevinpc2 Loss% Snt Last Avg Best Wrst StDev 1.|-- 0.0% 10 0.4 0.4 0.4 0.5 0.0 2.|-- amplifi.lan 0.0% 10 1.8 2.4 1.8 3.9 0.5 3.|-- 0.0% 10 9.6 10.1 8.7 13.3 1.2 4.|-- 0.0% 10 11.1 10.6 9.2 13.6 1.2 5.|-- ool-4353f300.dyn.optonlin 0.0% 10 22.0 13.5 11.9 22.0 3.0 6.|-- 0.0% 10 11.6 12.9 10.5 21.7 3.1 7.|-- 451be049.cst.lightpath.ne 0.0% 10 13.5 13.3 11.7 15.3 0.8 8.|-- lag-150.ear1.newyork1.lev 80.0% 10 26.1 20.1 14.2 26.1 8.4 9.|-- ae-2-3602.ear2.newyork1.l 90.0% 10 14.9 14.9 14.9 14.9 0.0 10.|-- intelq-tinet-level3-1ge.n 0.0% 10 16.5 14.7 12.0 16.7 1.3 11.|-- xe-1-2-6.cr0-was1.ip4.gtt 0.0% 10 23.0 21.3 19.1 24.3 1.9 12.|-- ae3-tinet-iad.as40676.net 0.0% 10 21.4 19.9 18.4 22.2 1.0 13.|-- dist-13873-r1.as40676.net 0.0% 10 22.4 20.6 18.1 25.2 2.4 14.|-- 0.0% 10 20.5 21.8 18.1 24.6 2.1
  4. At a minimum you could likely swap the SSD with a larger one but if it has m.2 support I would get a NVME drive when possible
  5. https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/legion-laptops/legion-y-series/Legion-Y520/p/88GMY500808 You can also get a newer model lenovo legion with a gtx 1060 instead of a 1050 thou you drop down to an I5 instead of and I7 (almost the same performance thou looking at reviews).
  6. If this has todo with GDPR EU regulations then it doesn't matter where it is hosted. If you have any data on a EU user then that data falls in line with GDPR and you have to follow guidelines on how that data is stored, what is stored, accessed, who has access, logging of access, and scrubbing of data if asked.
  7. If you use email based auth or perhaps even if you do not I would also suggest getting a U2F usb stick for your email if it supports it eg gmail $16-$20 on amazon This way if someone does have your password for email or whatever they cannot get in They also work on github, facebook, (all of google), list of sites here https://www.dongleauth.info/
  8. The Sony MDR-7506 or even the MDR-V6 great headphone choice, one of the top choices at the $100 range
  9. If doing twitch streaming/encoding on top of gaming at the same time look for something with 8 cores/threads at a minimum imo especially if looking into playing AAA games at high resolutions originpc offers many configuration options if not going the build your own route, amd threadripper imo sticks out for multitasking of this level about $4200 at origin pc with amd 1950x(16cores/32 threads), 32GB ram, 1080ti etc
  10. You can try to buy direct from Nvidia thou those cards are typically not setup to OC as well as others (not off the shelf anyhow). Currently it looks like all are sold out but if you jump on notify me on Nvidia's site you might be able to respond fast enough to get a card at a decent price
