I knew upfront that PA would be heavier on my internet connection, but I didn't know how heavy. I thought since I could play any other none peer-to-peer game without even getting close to the limitation of my connection I should be able to play at least regular PA matches. Nothing fancy like 40 players or even more than 10, but up to 8 across multiple planets should work. I sadly haven't had to play many games yet (life sucks sometimes) but in those 1v1 or 3 player ffa games the traffic went "through the roof". It is still okay but it also showed me that I will never be able to play 8 player games. My issue is that I didn't know that upfront. Don't get me wrong, I'm not ranting here, the game is fun and with a server set up we could probably play it via LAN. However, the fact that PA is way heavier on your internet connection than regular games, more than 15 times as heavy after just 30 minutes, is something that should be mentioned in the system requirements, and currently it doesn't even say that an internet connection is required at all. In my book Uber should release some charts that show how much bandwidth is needed per player and minute played. There are many people out there like me that are from regions that don't really have high speed internet. And I'm not just talking 3rd world countries here. I'm e.g. from Bavaria, a rather countryish federal state in Germany, where your connection is pretty bad if you don't live in a city. It's stable and good for pretty much every game, but longer PA games are just too much for it. And I think people should know that before they buy the game and it should hear it from the devs, they shouldn't have to find it out by searching the forums. Or, maybe I make a lot of noise for nothing here and Uber is currently working on drastically reducing the traffic?
