I live in Australia, so ping is usually pretty bad when connecting to the US. However, seeing the actual ping would give an appreciation of the current connection. As well as seeing the current fps, this would help greatly in determining what is slowing down game performance. Often I have very poor game performance in large games (large games are the norm afaik), and I regurally wonder if its because of my PC and/or the network connection and/or the game itself. I know Eternal Crusade is in Alpha and that there are no Pacific servers available at the moment. But if I am to invest any more money into Eternal Crusade tomorrow, or in the next few months, I need to know this basic information today. It sounds very entitled but I hope you understand my situation. Of course I could hold out and not play Eternal Crusade until game performance improves (it is only just going into Beta after all), but that would be very depressing. The UI (fps/ping) can be simple black/white. Could be turned on/off via the console (chat box) with a command. Thank you. PS: Do AMD graphics cards have any problems normal running of Eternal Crusade atm? (i.e.: in a 10v10 match).
