    Hello friends,

    I have the solution to free up the bandwidth, everyone must stop working on the internet and rather play solo games. lol
    For example, The Witcher 3, Resident Evil Remaster, Final Fantasy ...

    (I'm making a joke about stopping work on the internet, well done to keep you motivated and productive at home, there is so much temptation to have fun, it doesn't have to be easy.)

    Kisses

    Nat

    Definitly in for some LAN-Gaming with friends. Also it is nice thinking about ravens delivering our messages. Who even needs internet, LUL?

    Everyone commenting on what they would do, y'all will be dead in 1 week after the internet goes down.

    I don't think it will come to an ending like this. Honestly, the first days would be pain for most of us but after some time we have people getting over it and bothering with different things. Why "dead" in the first place?

    Wait, where is it?

    One thing I just remembered, we could also hop onto the decentralized internet! So not all is at loss! If there is a huge collapse we could theoretically put up our own web and make it like a giant wan. haha!

    As soon as this pandemic started and people began staying home and plowing through their backlogs of games and Netflix shows, I started to think of all unsung heroes manning the server farms keeping the internet services and sites we rely on up and running. Times are indeed scary right now and I ended up having to be laid off from work due to concerns about the virus and bringing it home to my wife and young son. He’s still too young to sit down on the couch with his old man and play video games, but that day will come soon enough.

    What little bit of gaming I’m able to do now had basically been single-player. I don’t have the time commitment to play any PvP without the constant threat of having to stop playing at the drop of a hat, or a diaper as it were. But this focus on single player games has allowed me to play through some great RPG titles that I missed over the years.

    Without internet, I’d find time to play more RPGs or other single player experiences. I’d work more on the Dungeons & Dragons campaign I’m writing and playing with my wife and friends. Hell, maybe I’d even pick up a book or go for a walk. I guess I wouldn’t be able to check Razer Insider all the time anymore...

    Let’s just hope it never comes to that. Game on, fellow gamers. Stay home and game on.

    I was one of the unlucky to have some internet problems during all this and spent some hours without internet!! But that was no problem!! had a few solo play games with good stories to play, did a lot of workout and of course a good book to read is the best partner for those kind of situations!!

    I've allready a ration data !:big_grin_:
    With a 300kb/s ADSL connexion, i have to use my phone to get a faster internet (5Mo/s) but i "only" have 100Go a month so i must think wisely when i want to dl a game or anything big.

    As for what i'd do without internet at all, i've got a great set of retro games in my storage (i've reinstall Dungeon Keeper 2 days ago).
     
  15. Thats a scary thought. I use internet everyday for school (and gaming of course). But please everyone stay safe out there and thank you to all helping.

    Err... What you say will never actually happen Dekades... Because it would be almost pointless. You wouldn't be able to engage in live tasks, but people would instead download massive MASSIVE amounts of data and probably break the Internet on a 'data day'.

    The only viable limit would be a data cap, in which case, I would probably get a DTH connection (cable cutter here :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:) and stop streaming things.

    This would be a great opportunity for me to get back to playing single player games. It's been a couple of years since i last played a game for the story and not for competition, team work and socializing.
