I eagerly await the day when the internet is so fast that nobody could possibly complain about lag and all the people yelling at games will have to come to terms with the fact that they suck.

Sometimes the speed of you internet doesn't determine lag. Most of the time it's the distance to the server.

But that actually is determined by the speed of the internet. I'm not talking about dl/up speed, I'm talking about the speed at which the electrons/ light signals move. Had it been faster, there wouldn't have been much ping. If my very sloppy math is correct, it would only take about 140ms for light to travel around the world in a fiber cable once. (I don't know if the "signal amplifyers" apply any latency to that signal though, so don't take my word for it.) Anyway, that means that if all the cables in the world were fiber and the routing was 100% perfect, the max ping you would be able to get would be around 70-75ish.

Actually, because the index of refraction of most communications grade single mode fiber is just over 3, it would take more like 500 ms for the light signal to travel around the world through fiber.

Light travels 3e8 m/s in a vacuum, but has different speeds in different media.

Hmm, so light travels about 3.5 times slower in the current material used in fiber cables? That seems rather slow to me.. Care to explain how/why it's that slow?

You also have to consider the fact that technology in graphics and mass data transfer will be upgrading as well. With 1000x faster internet, we would be able to build domes of interactable worlds, which would take a lot of memory. That technology will continue to advance until using 1000x faster internet than what we currently have isn't enough. Remember in the 80s when you though filling up 10MB was impossible? Now look. There will always be a continuing need to speed up data transfer, enlarge data storage, and optimize the user's interface and ultimately, their online abilities.

just got off a battlefield match where a guy claimed I was lagging/lag switching because i got a shotgun kill on him. He was black daddy, so he kicked me, told me it was because of the slug rounds. I told him to state in his rules that slugs were banned because there was nothing saying otherwise. (these rules are ******* stupid to begin with, but i like killing people on their own terms to make them mad.) he got pissy, started swearing at me saying i couldn't read and that I just sucked at the game (like wtf?)
So I shot his helicopter down the next match using my tank. I then got banned.

it'll never happen,
as soon as the hardware allows it, programmers push the envelope with software, so as the average internet speed gets faster, things like resolution, and web content go up to take advantage of that.

You do realize that it isn't just about internet speed, but about the required amount of information to transfer which goes up as the possible capacity goes up, right?

So it's really about whether internet speed can grow faster than games' levels of details and required speeds, and I don't see that happening in the near future. There's still plenty more that could be done with higher speeds, thus higher speeds will still be used to such a capacity that lag still exists. Maybe someday it won't be an issue, but I don't see it happening within the next 2 decades that's for sure. I mean, soft body physics is still in it's infancy for single player, I can't even imagine how much it will take for that to work in multiplayer without lag.

No you can't 1v5 the enemy, unless all the other teams are absolute crap. You can still be killed even if you're fed if the other team can do better teamwork and build up the right items to fight you.

Well really idk much about dota, that's just what my mates have told me. But, I did play a couple games and couldn't wrap my head around how to play, after playing lol it was just too wrong. Like, for instance, the mana costs in dota are ******* huge, and the stats are a bit confusing, as well as items. Also, the fact that you can kill your own minions is really weird.

Oh god imagine the GPU power with that technology: Yeah so we're running about 5000000000 polygons per model in a 1000 square mile map at around 120 fps, no big deal...

Naw, CoD'll probably get smaller and smaller as the time goes by. Call of Duty 483: Revenge of Dildo man'll probably only bee 2gb. .5gb for the hour long campaign and the other 1.5 for DLC and multiplayer.

By that point the game will only be like, 2 gigs. The dlc, which will have stuff like all the weapons, the characters, the graphics, and the audio will be like, 2000 gigs. And then they'll throttle your speed because you aren't a premium member. And each minute adds 20$ to your purchase because of "Network Usage Fees"

How do you not believe that? A new study shows it. Are you against science?

It is called graphene, it is far more durable than diamond, it is created by thinning graphite to 1 atom thick, it is by far more conductive than copper, it is the 6th most common element around (so in other words it is literally not worth the plastic it is printed on), it would dwarf any high end PC, it is bio safe (throw it on the ground!), It is highly flexible, And so ******* on...happy?

Lamar smith is pretty much the same guy as Cameron right now, except over in America. He is the Sopa bill and ban porn guy.    
   
I'm gonna give FJ the benefit of the doubt and assume you didn't get the sarcasm from grandogger and think the above post is disagreeing with Op.

We are. Well, Europe is. I don't about the U.S. (We probably are). The 2010 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded to some Russian/British team for research related to Graphene.

in 2008 the material had a price of $100,000,000 per cm^2 (it's a 2D material) - and in 1.5 years later it was down to $1000 (might be wrong) so thing is the price is falling drastically and waiting longer makes it A LOT cheaper.

Because having a standing army larger than the combined forces of the other top 70 countries is a better investment or something

It depends on how you calculate it. I used a study that factored in atomic weapons, submarines, ships, aircraft carriers, tanks, bombs, guns, etc that are readily available. Others that only factor in manpower would probably have the US lower than China and Russia.
