Something is definitely off, I'm trying to download LOLS9, and the download speed is a whopping 12-30 KB/s on a 30Mb/s
Ok, now something even more bizzare is happening. The download goes full speed for like 2 minutes, and then suddenly drops to abysmal 10KB/s :'( EVERY TIME!
This may be related to the time of day, or it may be a bad connection to Akamai. Have you tried a download manager like Jdownloader? Sometimes these can split a file up into multiple segments and download them all at once, which can boost the download speed quite a bit. Sorry for the trouble, at any rate.
I've heard a lot about high shipping costs for the GB store to overseas orders, especially the UK and Europe. If you think the shipping costs are high, can you do me a favor and take screenshots of the shipping costs for a t-shirt or hoodie from our store to your address and also include a screenshot of the shipping cost for a t-shirt or hoodie from something like Etsy or Woot or Zazzle or something like that? Preferably if you can get a screenshot of the full drop-down of shipping options. (Don't actually have to place any of these orders; just get to the point where you see the shipping, screenshot it, then cancel out.)
I just want to get an idea on whether the shipping is really ludicrous or whether it's within the bounds of reason considering VAT and customs and all that. Just feel free to insert the pictures into this thread. Thanks for any help!
What we need to do is petition and pressure Twitch to bring back some form of private channels. This change is ridiculous, and it serves little purpose but to screw over legitimate users like Giant Bomb. They need to fix this.
I am totally with you. Or at least give sites like Giantbomb this feature back @rorie did you guys try to talk tro twitch about this matter already?
We've talked with them about it, but they're unlikely to bring the feature back. It's no huge deal, we'll figure something out.
