    Agreed. The days of physical architecture being a serious hinderance in cross platforming / shadowing services are long gone

    Sorry but no. Differetiate between "networking" and "server maintenance" cause you are all jumbled up there
    - 18 years IT Networker, MCSE, CISCO, Uni degree blah blah blah
    As a business, you don't constantly repeat the same mistakes time and again. You solve it. Unless you feel that offset of profit saved in spending on infrastructure/people vs losing a few customers while the milking is good is worth it, which absolutely is my guess on the current scenario

    Why exactly are you speaking like you are an authority on the subject, or have experience with how they are patching?
    If they are running such drastically different "architecture systems", as you surmise, then they need a -----ing kick in the arse for not whiteboxing whatever the ----- the korean game is running on

    With you there. The amount of people that defend Kakao, talk about how hard it is to patch stuff b/c "they work in the industry" or their dog once ate a laptop, yet do not understand the very simple point that Kakao literally move files from a thumb drive to a server... yet manage to ----- it up time AND time AND time again... i mean cmon, how can you defend such incompetancy?
    Considering how -----ing awful the servers run, I've got a feeling the systematic issue they have is el cheapo shitboxes run our game

    Self process gathered materials
    In a few instances, buying off the MP works out at a profit, but rarely, and only specific crates... and with a lot of MP luck

  14. kearnstar added a post in a topic Marketplace bidding issue (POLL)   

    I like that your argument is
    a) I'm Stupid
    b) It'd be illogical so no way PA would do it
    Just because there could be multiple bid winners, doesn't mean there needs to be multiple recipients of an item.
    My understanding of the current system is that there is multiple bid winners per auction, therefore it is still fastest click wins, but to a MUCH lesser degree, i.e. only if you won the rng bid lotto can you then win the "check bidding" race
    If you cannot understand the subtle differences in there, I'd suggest you don't call anyone else stupid. ever.

    My only issue/concern is that there can be multiple winners during the bid phase, therefore making latency/speed an issue again
    Be nice if a Dev could confirm how many bid winners there can be on a single auction. I've seen no official information on it
