I know the old view about the eye not being able to see above 30FPS isn't as cut and dried as people make it out to be, but when I had 120 FPS on my 144Hz monitors I can't honestly say I noticed any difference, aside from the much higher temp of my graphics card. I've gone back to ~40FPS and cooler temps.

Give me a shout when higher FPS (or lower ping, etc) makes AD abandon the holy bridge of Alessia and actually attack / defend things that give points. :p

Age, Genetics and how good your eyes are in general have huge impact on how you perceive anything IRL or on a screen.

What is an indisputable fact, is that anything above 60 FPS makes the image, movement and input smoother.

People who see no benefit above 30 FPS should most likely seek medical assistance.

I can barely see something the size of a planet (for example, an actual planet) at 10 paces. Medical science needs a few hundred years before it can help me. :p

Still, there's an upper limit to what the eye can detect, and while I'm making no claims on what that number is (I don't have any of those fancy new-fangled "qualifications"), I've seen no evidence that you can detect 120FPS when you're looking straight at it. I know peripheral vision can benefit from higher numbers and will presumable help with the smoothness.

I guess what I'm doing here is mocking gamers and their collective dumb obssession with things they know nothing about - "T3h higher numberz makes me better". A perfect example would be lag: taking the blame for the fact that you suck since 5,000 BCE.* :smile:

* Also the fact that most of those gamers don't know lag from ping. :p

    Yarrr!
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I see Gina is as clueless as ever: "We’ve been seeing your posts recently about issues with the LFG tool when queuing for dungeons and Battlegrounds ". Recently? Unless "for approximately the last 5 years" counts, then no, not recently, you un-professional hack.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    She also points out that it's been an issue before, also due to load.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    I'd love to know what their PR policies are like, even when they are trying to be communicative and transparent. All we get is PR speak and/or deflection
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    But she totally plays ESO, honest!
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    a lot of NA players claim to have no issues at all, merely playing ESO doesn't make you aware of all issues.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Also I never expect PR/marketing to play their games
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    I always assume players who claim to have no issues at all in a video game are either lying or too much of a fanboi to admit the truth. You cannot have a piece of software as complex as an MMORPG and it not have issues. The only question is how the developer deals with them.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    It's more likely they aren't noticing the issues because they don't know how things are supposed to work.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Most people who play videogames aren't technically minded.. at all

    Just reading an article about the new Mac Pro, which looks like a bad-ass workstation. The winner from the comments section is: Base price starts at un-affordable.

    Any fans of Designated Survivor? Amazon just put out 10 episodes yesterday.

    Did maintenance kick everyone out of their guilds on EU?
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    It's a known issue, it happen sometimes when they do maintenance. Nothing is gone, they just need to fix it, usually by taking the server down... unfortunately they are all drunk in LA atm.
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    happens*
  • Rootimus @ Rootimus:
    Yeah, it's what happens when you don't hire the right people and create the right corporate culture. *Shrug*

    There are people working at Zenimax? I'm pretty sure they are all trolls, and Todd Howard is the king of the Trolls
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    At this point the only person who is a bigger conman is Randy Pitchford
  • Chills05 @ Chills05:
    To become a CEO of a gameproduction company one needs to be the biggest troll of them all. Only then will you reach the inhumanly low bar set by Andrew Wilson (EA) and RObert Kotick (Activision)
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Andrew Wilson and Bobby Kotick are full on evil villains though, that's too far even for Zeni... for now atleast
  • essi2 @ essi2:
    Also ZOS apparently learned how to update the game while it is still live, now they too are living in the 2000s
