Re: [Networking] Online Gaming on HughesNet

With 4 computers logged into EverQuest I average 15 to 25 megs an hour so playing mmorpg's at least is not likely to get you fapped unless you have one of the budget plans with low faps.

World of Warcraft works on Hughesnet. I would not recommend pursueing any type of PvP goals with it. You are simply too far behind in an environment that requires split second reaction times. Big PvP is fine where lots of players are around but PvP in areans or dueling will just result in a headache.

Its hard enough raiding in WoW with Hughesnet. You have to be the best player in your raid just to be average. You will find yourself being constantly called out for standing in the fire or not moving fast enough when you get a debuff that requries you to run away. You always have to be on top of your game when playing in satellite internet. Its even better to use addons like DBM so you can get an idea of about when the boss is about to do something so you can prepare to move incase it targets you. Even though DBM will still be off by a couple seconds because of latency.
