Frostyvpn seems to be working for Crazybob's for some players. Not for me though :( Worth giving it a try.

For F*** sake!

They blocked RSA secure servers - we can't access our Office network via secure VPN... :mad:

I won't be able to work from home - gotta go into office tomorrow then...

PTA needs a spike rod up their @$$!

They are actually doing packet inspection, means all packets are being read at ptcl dns servers to look if the destination is some blocked site.

What's so dangerous about this is there is absolutely no safety of your internet traffic, even your credit card information isn't safe with PTCL.

Who put that dumb lady in IT though, does she even knows what IT stands for ????

they got some new tool they are playing with it even VPNs are not connecting
That's a relief, i thought this was my connection only. i tried openvpn, hotspot shield and spotflux nothing was working.
has PTA / PTCL decided to block VPNs too ?

I think the block on the IP's we reported were unblocked 2 days back (incl. my own server).

And yes they (PTA) have been banning specific IP's like I said earlier.

SpotFlux hasn't been connecting since around new years time.

    So according to you, It Takes Two is the most cinematic game of 2021? lmao
    Certainly more cinematic than Metroid Dread and Returnal 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

    But It Takes Two is. It's going to encourage more indie devs to go full cinematic in hopes of getting recognized 🤣

    3-0 Oscar is obliteration, domination, whatever you wanna call it :LOL:

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    "Obliterated" is not a term I'd use for a game that lost in the overall tally 🤣

    Doesn't mean we won't see more roguelikes tho lol

    Hades isn't what I'd call a cinematic game, yet it obliterated a AAA cinematic heavy game :LOL:
    Link
  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    And also keep getting more cinematic. E.g. It Takes Two 🤣
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    It Takes Two completely deserves the awards its getting (y)
    Link
  • Necrokiller Necrokiller:
    Or, the simpler logic is, indie games just keep getting better 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    The trend of recognizing indies above all wasn't a thing back then 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

    CerebralTiger said:
    Pretty sure they won't be awarding a non-indie game in the presence of a 90+ (or close to it) indie game 🤷‍♂️:LOL:
    If that was true, Inside would've been the GoTY in 2016. So, your reasoning is still not making sense 🤷‍♂️:LOL:

    Also, why limit the argument to "last 3 years"? :unsure:
    The trend started recently 🤷‍♂️

    Has a non-indie game won anything from them in the last 3 years. It Takes Two will take (pun intended) it this year 🤣
    That doesn't mean they were suddenly "more interested" in awarding an indie game. It just happened to be better than the competition :LOL:
    Link
  • CerebralTiger CerebralTiger:
    Necrokiller said:
    So we can say they are "more interested" in awarding AAA games when an indie doesn't win. Works both ways 🤷‍♂️
