It seems to me that hardly anyone plays pvk anymore. Whenever I go on steam and seacrh for servers all of them have 0 people. I think everybody should play more!

    Usually we organize via AIM or some other messaging app. Also, regarding the servers: if you join it, more will come.

    Well, I just joiend a game and some more people came, but I was lagging. I believe it is my video card. I just got a new computer and I think this computer has a worse card than my old one. I'm not a computer expert, but my brother knows a lot so I asked him and he says my video card is built in so to replace it I'd need a new motherboard or soemthing like that. This sucks.

    oh please...When will people learn that LAG doesn't equal to having low FPS (frames per second)
    lagging is something caused either by your connection, rate settings or server's connection. And remember also that distances cause high ping, like if you are playing from US and the server is in Eu you will have ping around 100-250ms.
    Anyway, this has nothing to do with your Graphics card

    Having a low FPS makes the game run far from smoothly, but it won't make anyone lag. (unless you are playing with some ancient 300mhz pentium II)
    Low FPS in HL is usually caused by your CPU or Graphics card

    But on the topic: People do still play pvk, you should be able to find servers with players around 16-20 GMT +0

    It might have been the server then, although my ping was huge. It was around 1700-2000, that's not just slow.

    alright, I think it's just my internet provider going slow right now seeing as everything is going slow.

    why dont you try to starting your own server and see if its slow? If it is then it is your video card. Onboard video cards are slow, but they should be able to play a 5 year old game.

    If your Ping is above 1000+ there's definatly a major problem with your connection or your computer. Even If I play on a korean/UK/Russian server its 189-312.

    I'm just glad there's actually more than one server up. It was not too long ago that we'd be lucky to have just one server.

    Those were some good days. My finest memory is on grogboat. Everyone was a pirate onboard the boat and I was the only knight, picking them off one by one with my arrows.

    Haha Clans are so pointless with a community this small. In CS a clan would be the size of the PVK community in it's entirety. Aside from Clan "wars", what's the point??

    If anybody cares, pvk is running fine now. It was just my internet provider going slow.

    Internet providers are suck. To keep things going fast for me, I taped a bit of the true cross onto my phone line, which somehow magically also sends dsl at my computer.

    It wasnt the first clan match in PVK. We used to do them every once in awhile. All that I can remember was KB vs TIP (me and my little brother havar) vs 4 of them, and when we creamed them they insisted on having low gravity because thats what they practiced on, and they still got destroyed.

    I think BD and KB also had a match if im not mistaken.

    Anyways, it's really hard to have a fair PVK match because of pings, usually its a EU vs US clan =/

    I haven't been playing the last few days (nor have had the server up), but I've been playing a good deal of PVK recently. I'm fairly content with how many people we have playing, and this is alot of servers compared to my first days in PVK.

    I've playing pvk about once a day in the past couple weeks, though not recently, as my shifts at work have been weird times.

    .... 4 of them? We only faced you with 2 i still remember it... And there was not low gravity, I remember that match like it was yesterday first clan match TIP had! I had 20 somthing kills and Ice Demon had like 5... i think we were playing to 30 somthing... I guess if you played TIP with 4 you probably played The Incredible Pirates.... Bastards who stole are tag pissed me off i started playing MMORPG's for the past 3 years xD.

    P.S. I just bought halflife again!!!! anyone oldies who wanna play gimmie a msg in my AIM or email, been so long tongue.gif.
