    So what happens if I download say Crysis for example, a 500Mb update is released the next day and then I downloaded Crysis on a separate computer 2 days later. Does it download the whole game from online, or does it download the game from the cache and then the 500Mb update seperately?

    what if you already have a bunch of steam games already installed on your computer? would it be useful to rather just backup my steam library to my NAS or just do this and keep all my games on it? I am unfortunately limited to 10 mbps internet as that is expensive here and I can only afford it. I usually keep a bunch of games installed on my computer just in case I want to play them in the future after installing them and playing them once or twice. Thanks!

    I need some help. I have 250 Mbit/s internet and when I'm downloading games from steam, all of that is being used and the download time ends up being around 7 hours. System reboot or router reboot doesn't work, I have tried limiting the bandwidth steam uses but that didn't change anything. When I check my internet speeds during downloads it's down below 1 mbit/s. Anyone who might know what the problem is?

    The average ping from players hasn't changed in like 25 years of PC gaming, despite speeds rising by insane amounts since the days of 56k modem and the earliest broadband. I still average between 15-30 most days, most people average like 30-70 and a few people who I assume have crappy internet or playing from other Continents get 100+, but playing Battlefield 5 the ping looks no different to me than playing games back in the day like Medal of Honor: Allied Assault or Battlefield 1942.
