Thread: Recommended Connenction for playing Dota

    Question Recommended Connenction for playing Dota

    Hello, I was wondering which internet connection will allow me to play dota (5v5) on garena delay/lag free. I currently use banglalion 512kbps 6GB and it delays like hell. i have a friend who uses only 256kbps of another isp and he rarely experiences lag/delay. So if u have a suggestion pls mention the speed and the name of the isp, if possible the mothly rate too.

    The point is, where do you live? If you live in Dhanmondi or Gulshan then you should go for Link3.
    I'm using Qubee, playing DotA,Cod4 smoothly in Garena,RGC.

    to play dota smoothly you need 20kbps(or 2.5kBps) up and 20kbps(or 2.5kBps) down.
    to host a 5v5 game you need 200kbps(or 25kBps) up and 200kbps(or 25kBps) down.
    now calculate

    Actually it doesn't matter how much bandwidth you get. It totally depends on the latency and pings you get with the host.
    If you're planning to get Link3 then you can host smooth DotA host in Garena.

    BTCL for gaming is purely situational. If your SNR and attenuation is good, then it is fine. If it is not, then you ares screwed. I, a BTCL user back then, stopped playing DotA on Garena from November last year and only started playing again after I switched to Qubee this August. As for using WiMax, if you the high priced modems instead of the dongles, you can play fine in any host, as long as the host have a decent net connection. Based on my 1 month+ experience playing in Garena, I would suggest to get Link3 if it is available in your area.

    Hmm.. so it depends on the modem...... which either way i dont plan on buying. I am thinking about getting Link3, but first i guess l will need to sell my previous dongle in order to manage the installation fee. Btw, doesnt BTCL suck? i mean using the TnT line and all. It seem omnoiusly similar to the 32kbps dial-up connection which i used to use back in 1999-2000........(shudder)
