Game Servers

Postby admin » Mon Jul 24, 2006 7:27 am

I don't think so... But what's the point of having game servers in Lebanon? They are useless for the moment. Local connections are too slow to play most online games, right?

No actually they are online servers, but Lebanese. The latency doesn't get higher than 30 ms in a normal game. So the game runs as if you are playing in a network.

There are at least 70 - 200 players who have played at least once on VISP's game servers. Players from the north, the south, Beirut, el jabal...

The online games supported on VISP include: Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Warcraft 3, C&C Generals, Starcraft, Diablo, Quake... There's a forum with superb support, for every game. Even the administrators join the games sometimes. :wink:

VISP's the most promising ISP ever to have come to Lebanon.

- The free dial up is a GREAT move. It's definitely the first in Lebanon.
- The fact that they develop local game servers is amazing.

- They finally decided to show priced packages on their website.
- They are not very clear about the areas they cover. They are now saying "Beirut" is covered. All of Beirut? Under what conditions?
- They don't talk about BW limitations (i hope there are none, otherwise that's bad).

I JUST tried to contact them by email & it didn't work: their spam filter is set too high and automatically rejects the emails, this is not correct (specially if this applies to their clients). I know IDM used to do that on idm emails and on clients hosted on their servers.

A forum member also tried to email them in June and they never replied. This is not an ambitious and straight forward behaviour. This is a "little shop" behaviour.

Also, for the moment, I never heard of a VISP customer ever... Because their service was not really public and almost secret I suppose... I hope visp broadband users will post messages here to tell us what they think, so we can have some kind of proof that VISP is a real ISP... and not just a beautiful promise :?

(If you want to talk about your experience with VISP & other Lebanese ISP's, please post your messages in the right forum thread.)

Dear Murex,

I would feel more comfortable to send you this e-mail on private, but since your e-mail is not included in your profile (As you have noted, I have always included my e-mail and MSN. Fair and decent people do not need to hide) I am forced to post here.


1. Please, do not bother sending us any e-mails. We will not read them. Due to your hostile actions against our company our management has decided that you are not welcome to be our customer. We do not need people like you among our customers. How many customers we have is not your concern at all. Even if we have merely two, we do not need you to be the third.

2. Our spam filter is not set too high. Our regular customers can always contact us in at least two different ways.

3. Your words about VISP getting Internet from Turkey and Cyprus DSL accounts via 200km wireless antenna can make us feel sorry for your networking illiteracy.

4. Whatever VISP is --> a fish shop, a bar, a good or bad promise has no concern to you.
Please note that in case we notice that you have subscribed to VISP services directly our via some reseller, your account shall be suspended and your funds - returned.

5. VISP rarely sells directly to individuals. We have a strong reseller network and if you have provided enough details our sales managers will forward your e-mail to the appropriate reseller.

6. The way act is our company policy. I will not discuss if it is good or bad. If you do not like it - do not bother with us, leave us to suffer from our wrong company policy. We have enough customers to choose wether to reply to someone or not.

Hope this is the last time you discuss VISP and we (personally me) - to be obliged to reply to your non-senses.

Thank you for your understanding!


P.S. I am not Ukrainian.

P.P.S. Internet in Turkey is not cheaper than in Lebanon. Only in the European part of Turkey you can find decent Internet services.

Trash,

if your eyes had some connection with your brain... you would see that we at VISP do a lot.

1. the first case of FREE dial-up in Lebanon. And 56Kbps, not 33,600.
And this can not be found in any of the surrounding countries - Syria, Iraq, Iran, Saudi, Turkey, Kuwait.

2. The first gaming network in Lebanon. I would spare to tell you how much money and efforts we invested in this. But I would not spare to tell you that the network is free not only for VISP customers. We made it free to several other ISPs. See when another ISP in Lebanon will offer a free service and O GOD, will offer it to their potential competitors... NEVER, poor little boy, NEVER is the right answer.

3. We started the first DSL installations. We saw that waiting for the government to do something is like waiting for the dead men to return from the wars. So we started on our own. Do not ask us how much this investment cost us. And it is not our fault that Ogero asks for apprx $800 installation fee. They have a website, a phone, an office. Go there and complain if you are a brave man. Hiding on the forums is all what you can do?

So, if you are going to put us on the same page as others, the only thing I can tell you is to bite the wood.

Let me tell it to you in your own words -> trash goes to trash. Trash customers deserve trash ISPs.

Pfffftttttt

Ok cool, now thanks to me (& Trash), THE PEOPLE have more info about VISP! And it looks good... And the more you make happy PALPOULE's, the more they'll sing your name & better the world will be.

Theodor your language is heavy and you have a very naive attitude... "Trash" is cool and his name and attitude is just provocative. You are obviously too stiff... You should have more HUMOUR...

It is VERY clear for all that all the Internet problems come from the government (through Ogero). In my opinion our government have been committing a huge crime on its people and economy by blocking the DSL for years. I hope one day they'll open an inquiry at the UN to find the TRUTH and bring the assholes to justice, judge them, sodomize them by horses, and then hang them. (But that's my personal opinion.)

Nevertheless, "All Lebanese ISP are Trash"... That's a fucking fact. They even SPAM like viagra rats (IDM, TERRANET), although they seem to have learnt their lesson lately. We'll see... And we can only be HAPPY that VISP is doing what VISP is doing to try to proove that this RULE is wrong, and that VISP is not trash! I am all ready half-convinced. And the more I'll meet real happy customers (in real), the more I'll believe it.

1- About the VISP free dial up, the speed is fine, but all the people I know have reported frequent cuts, and they have been unable to use it seriously. It is a GREAT tool as a back up. It is NOT as good as Terranet's paid 56k dial up. NOT AT ALL. But who can complain? This is a great move from VISP and I am sure it has and will continue to have a good effect on the popularity of the company.

2- This GAME SERVER thing is an amazing thing. You should get a special price for developing game servers in this shit hole (Lebanon). I am sure this investment on your part will pay off on the long term.

3- VISP is a hero maybe... Ogero sucks, we agree... But let people HIDE WHERE THEY WANT TO HIDE! What would be the point for Trash to tell you that his name is Ali or Charbel? Just do your ISP job darling, and smile to the people (force yourself). You represent your company. Trash represents himself as a critical "negative" potential customer. The day he gets a good connexion is his ass, he'll change his name to Flower... If I were you, I'd open my legs very wide and I'd be nice like a professional whore to push him to become my customer. (But that's my personal opinion.)
