That's tough. Other than using QOS settings on the router to prioritize your device traffic over theirs, a second connection might be the only choice. What type of router do you have?

 

Just the cheapy that comes with the DSL subscription. A Technicolor gateway if you've even heard of it.

Howdy! My first time on this thread. I should have found this long ago. Just had an insurance representative in my office today explaining Medicare to me, so I should fit right in.

45 here.. married 20 years.. kids.. deposed ex commander from the tank game "Iron Force", (my wife went from watching me play with her chin on my shoulder to eventually staging a military coup and seizing command of my legion. The shameless dogs were all much too happy to follow her.)

I know an Aussie guy living in Dallas. Not you apparently, since he has no children. He's BIG into modeling; tanks and planes mostly, I believe.

Hey fellow Metamucil drinkers!

 

48 years old, three kids, married once and hoping to stay that way.

 

The CINC-House doesn't get why I play.

 

What else is new?

There are atleast 3 "old guys" clan that represent over 500 players.  Then there are a couple thousand in game. 

Tier 10's: FV 183, T110E3, T110E4, T110E5, T57, M48, IS-4, IS-7, T-62a, Obj 140, Grille, BätChät 

 

There is only one TD and 183 is her name. 

I drive Joseph Stallon (IS) tanks for the win.

Probably not too weird in a city the size of Dallas, unless you're from Tasmania as well.

Greetings folks, Just introducing myself ...45,married with  two daughters and a history teacher. I play bass in a 90's band with college buddies. Love being part of the game and community.

 

During games I have been trying to be constructive and help others as I have been helped. When making comments to zero dmg or yoloing noobs I feel compelled to refer them to watch Bushka, Anon, listen to tankboom podcast, etc. I learned so much from the experts, and I have gradually improved( with the unfortunate occasional backslide in wr).

 

Anyhow... have a great week people.

 

cheers
