Why GameColony.com is now much faster
Posted by webmaster (moderator) 15 Jul 2018 7:44am
    


1. We have moved to a new data center, which allowed us to upgrade our external network - it is now 10 times faster (changed from 100Mbps to 1 Gbps).

2. We have upgraded most of our internal network to 10Gbps - it also became 10 times faster.

3. We have moved our game servers to the new secure & fast Oracle SPARC T7-4 servers which approximately quadrupled the speed of our game servers.



UPGRADE

Haven't noticed any difference on my end



Connection speed & analysis of a personal connection

You can issue commands in bold below inside a command 'cmd' window and see where the connection bottlenecks are.

Bottlenecks can appear anywhere among the several intermediate networks connecting your location to GameColony. Another common bottleneck is your aging or orerheated WIFI router that starts losing communication packets.

The first command's output below will show the times in milliseconds for any intermediate network 'hop'. Times above 200ms are too slow. If any asterisks appear, they would indicate potential packet losses.

Play cribbage tournaments online

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
