    VPN Haters: There are many people that logically assume that adding a proxy or VPN to your connection is only going to add latency to your game connection. These people have probably used free proxies or VPNs in the past, got bad results with them, and incorrectly concluded that all these technologies must be the same.

    VPNs reroute your internet so you get lower latency. My ping to NA servers without is 315 and with is 220 so it would be greatly appreciated if they were enabled on CosmicPvP.

    To stop players abusing VPNs. I suggest only let 'trusted' players with the ability to log on with a VPN. I do not know how you would chose who is eligible but i suggest picking players over a certain amount of hours, rank, etc to ensure the account is not an alt.

    This would be really appreciated by all the players over 100ms that would like a fairer chance against players with lower ping. Thanks - Ray

    Interesting, I think there are other ways to get better ping on NA servers from... wherever. I don't think VPNs are going to be allowed for any reason at any time for the reason that people can ban evade, chargeback and do all that stuff.

    To allow "trusted players" to use vpn's just opens up the argument for favouritism. I don't think this adds much to the game so it is a -1 for me chief.

    Choosing specific people and not allowing others is just biased.

    What other ways you know of?
    I said there should be a criteria and once the player hits the criteria, head staff can manually review all the appeals for VPN use (My suggestion). If a system like this is done correctly it can be very helpful for a large amount of players on the server and would reduce the bias. If you have any suggestions please leave them, down below :).
    I know vpns are for hackers trying to evade IP BANS. That’s why I said there should be a criteria. You aren’t seeing the big picture.

    Just check your wifi stats, see what's happening. There's a good chance that you can increase bandwith and other things on it to just overall reduce your ping. Other than that, either move to US or send some custom satellites up into space.

    How do you determine who to trust and who not to? People will, chargeback, hack, ban evade, this will never happen.

    Cosmic client could keep track of your hardware ID to determine if it's the same person rather than using IP
