I understand that booting the kids off of netflix or stopping a large download of adult material can help your connection, but when your internet is as bad as shed-net there is truly no way to fix it on my end. Well I guess I could have paid for it. Penalizing players who don't have access to quad-band, fibre optical, 0 packet loss, a positive ping, seems like a harsh choice. If you are going to design an online only game then accept all internets. Im going to go feed the squirrels to make the generator run faster now.

No. You design a game to give the best experience to the widest set of people reasonably possible. And then you protect that group from the extreme outliers running on Shed-Nets. Or what have you.

Might there be a case where someone's internet just isn't acting right and they have no way to fix it? Sure. And that's unfortunate and I feel for them. My own internet has had periods where it was just terrible for days or weeks at a time. But the same time, it's hardly fair to impose a bad experience on players with good connections either...
