Currently, the multiplayer experience in Insurgency: Sandstorm is terrible. Bugs like continuum gunfire sound and laggy control. And here in China, we are usually experiencing lag over 100, sometimes 200. It made the gameplay experience terrible. Maybe fix this with some servers in China?
I'm living in China and I play on Asian server on 100 to 300 ping, but at that time there weren't many people playing on Asian server and my internet wasn't performing so good so that I'm connected to the American server which is more than 300 ping.
I'm playing Insurgency with a laptop, and as you know, the cooling system of a laptop isn't as good as the one of a desktop computer. Maybe it's even worse on my laptop so that sometimes the overheat protection(maybe something else so I shouldn't blame on the cooling system) shut down my computer after about 2 games of this game(it's random
sometimes I can play it for a long time and some times it even occurred even when I'm playing Insurgency Source). The laptop even continues to heat up in the main menu. I think a 2D main menu will help a lot to give my laptop some time to rest. Besides, The only purpose I can find for a 3D main menu so far I can found is to display the character, which is only mattered when we are customizing it.
