Default Anyone here in the Military?

If so, how difficult do you find it to find time to play?

Is there a lot of lag?

Appreciate any more answers, and insight in to those currently in service, or served while playing EQ.

Those are very vague questions. What branch of the military? What rank/role? What base? Deployed? Overseas? On a ship/sub?

While never active duty, I worked closely with the Navy as a civilian engineer for many years on various bases in Japan, Washington, California, Virginia, Guam, and a few times out to sea for sea trials / CASREPS.

On the bases I've been on there's no issue with gaming, depending on your free time and responsibilities. The wifi is generally good, and there's many different lounge areas that were always full of people on their laptops or using those portable gaming suitcase dealies for their xbox or playstation.

If you're out to sea on a ship, don't expect the wifi to be good enough for gaming, if it exists/works at all.

But yeah, need more info. The available playtimes between a Marine infantry grunt and a Navy logistics specialist are significantly different.

I used to play EQ with a guy in the american navy stationed in Japan. He would come and go but when he was back at base he was able to raid and group normally.

Went over and saw him for a month. Cool place.

This game works pretty well on a terrible connection. You can use a phone or a potato even a tomato

Raiding was fine back in the day on 56k modems. The biggest issue was particle effects lagging old PC's. I spent most of my cleric raiding career facing a wall for that reason (or around a corner)

I'm against all the bullshit wars, but this is a messed up thing to say. We should have some respect for the military servicepeople among us.

They sometimes put their lives at risk for us.

We don’t need to send the military off to fuck up other countries, but we do need a military.
