Topics I've Started

Negativity Towards New Products

05 May 2012 - 12:01 PM

Right so, I've noticed there has been a ton of negativity towards new paintball products/companies. It seems a lot of people are curb stomping the product/company before they even get out their products.

Some examples;

~Machine Vapour (Just because a company is new, does not mean their equipment is bad or overpriced)
~Tippmann Crossover (Just because its a Tippy)
~Empire Vidar Mask (Just because the looks aren't the best does not make this a terrible mask)
~Valken Marker (Just because it looks similar to another marker, or is made by Valken, does not make it a terrible marker instantly)


A few of these products haven't even been released and people are already reviewing what the issues will be Posted Image


It particularly bugs me when someone gives a new company a cold shoulder, even though hardly anyone had gave them a try.
S'yeah, stop giving things so much flak when you yourself know next to nothing 'bout it.

Improving Download Rates

22 December 2011 - 09:56 PM

Ever since I switched internet providers a year or so ago, my download rate on anything has dropped significantly.

I used to get probably 1.5 MB/s, and now I get about 10-100KB/s on average. Posted Image
Even when the download is direct, or has 1000+ seeds and few leechers, I still only get a 30KB/s or so DL rate.

Anyone know a way of improving this? Anything better then this shit would be amazing.

Edit; No, it isn't the downloads/files that causes this. At my moms house I will get the shitty DL rate as I mentioned, but when I am at my dads, I will get 2mb/s on the same file. [Different Internet providers]



Edit 2.0: Just ran a test on speedtest.net and my results make no sense.

But as you can see, "SLOWER THAN 62% OF CANADA"

Phantom Feedneck

14 July 2011 - 09:10 PM

Well, I am a Cheap-ass. So since buying my phantom, I have been looking for a used feedneck for it.
The issue is, threads. Everyone seems to have a different answer to the question of: What thread does a Feedneck need to work with a Phantom Body port? And who makes them?

I guess... really confused on the topic because of all the different and completely opposite results I have got from it so far Posted Image.


Thanks :)
