Traffic and Criminal laws Updated 



We are currently experiencing an issue with our server provider (OVH). This is allowing limited to no connection to the servers. This is a worldwide issue that they are having currently and is nothing to do with our end. All we can do at this time is be patient and wait. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We will provide updates as they come!

      New members, please read this!!   03/02/17

      To all new members - welcome to EPCG.  This is the home of State of Emergency and our members play many different games.  Please take time to look over the forums and become familiar with the different sections.  General chat about SoE belongs in the SoE General chat, help belongs in Help section, etc.  DO NOT PM an admin to discuss your SoE server ban or questions about "How do I play this?"  All info can be found by taking 5 mins to use the search function in the upper right or going to the perspective forums and look for your answer.  Can't find the info?  Post your concern in the proper forums.  We have a public relations team if you must contact our staff, this is where you start.  If they cannot answer your question or address your concern, the PR member will forward it to the correct person. As to ban appeals - this is a community.  I can assure you that if your first post on the forums is a ban appeal, this does not look great.  It shows that your not here for the community and to meet new people, make friends, and contribute.  Your viewed as a fly through player and you won't make a great impression on the community when they see this.  Be active here and you'll find plenty of friendly gamers that play a variety of games.  Chances are, you'll find new friends to game with and enjoy your games that much more. EPCG has a solid admin team behind them and we do our best to address all issues in a timely manner.  With that said, please keep in mind that we have jobs, family, real life, and we'd like to enjoy our gaming time as well.  Please use the staff chain of command, starting with the Public Relations team.  You can save yourself from getting banned by reading and knowing our forum rules and our SoE server rules.  Failure to read this will ultimately lead to your perma-ban without question.  Another thing that will help you succeed in remaining here is common sense.  If you have none, you might as well leave now before the members chew you up and spit you out.  This is a mature group of players and respect is expected to the members and staff.  We work hard to bring you a one stop place for your PC gaming time!

    Needs to get out more

    If you find your exact cooler model, there's still a chance that they sell a mounting kit for it for AM4. If you want to stream and play at the same time, AMD Ryzen is definitely the right choice for now. Coffee Lake coming soon(tm) might change that, but we'll see. Intel's i9 CPUs are all on their "XXXXXXtreme" platform, where a mainboard alone costs over 300 bucks. While I did say that RAM didn't become any better for gaming since DDR-2 since bandwidth is basically wasted, that doesn't mean there's no difference between RAM kits. If you do opt for Ryzen, you should probably get some Samsung B-Die based Ram, since they offer greatest compatibility. Like the G-Skill Tridentz 3200 CL14.And make sure to give your future Motherboard's memory QVL a good look. Ryzen currently tops out at ~3200, so any speed significantly above that is wasted, but lower CL (command latency) helps a lot in gaming still. For gaming, the true latency matters a good bit. You'll get a feel for it if you divide command latency by clockspeed, in this case 14/3200 = 0.004375. Don't get anything worse (higher) than 0.005. I've built and helped build on the Asus Prime X370 Pro and the Prime B350 Plus. Both are good boards to build with, can't speak for any others. If you get an SSD AND a new mainboard, go get an M.2 NVME SSD, preferrably from the Samsung 960 series. They're faster and easier to install. Think about capacity some more, btw. Nowadays, most AAA games are between 50 and 100 GB, meaning you'll only be able to squeeze 2 games and your OS onto the SSD at 256GB. I know I'm struggling with my old 256GB SSD. Lastly, RAM and SSDs and GPUs are way too expensive right now, so this is the worst time for a build, but if it's needed right now that can't be helped, heh. Not gonna change for another couple of months, anyways.

    CPU stuff: Yeah, if you stream and play at the same time that poor 2600k is sure to struggle. Did you overclock it to 4.5 or something? If not, that might be a good place to start. Performance per clock didn't make any leaps forward since then, though. So the only real improvement you'll get will be more cores and threads. I'm serious, here. At the same clocks, a latest gen intel i7 processor is 20% faster at most - and they only overclock like 10% further, too. In that vein and for best streaming performance, you'll want a Ryzen 7 1700/1700X/1800X and overclock a fair bit, to somewhere between 3.8 and 4.0 GHz. Those are all the same chip, except the higher ones are better binned and thus slightly more likely to reach better speeds - more expensive too, though. Don't even waste a thought on an i5. 4 Threads are quite often held busy by current games, leaving no breathing room for stream video encoding on the fly. If you can wait at all, coffee lake might shake things up a fair bit. Coming soon(tm). Don't get an Ivy Bridge (3XXX series) CPU. They have tooth paste instead of solder between IHS and die and thus have much worse thermal properties. They're not much faster clock per clock, either. Your CPU, if overclocked, should match any Ivy Bridge chip. RAM stuff: Don't be fooled by the big numbers on DDR-4. Games are pretty much never starved in memory bandwidth, and so switching to DDR-4 won't make those any faster. The thing that matters is latency, and that has remained the same pretty much since DDR-2. Oh and capacity matters, too, of course. Don't go below 16GB, it's <current year> after all. Running 4 sticks on a dual channel memory controller stresses it more than running 2 sticks - meaning you'll lose stability at higher clocks. This is why you should only run as many modules as you have memory channels, unless you absolutely need the capacity. Mobo: I personally use an Asus Prime X370 Pro, because it has decent VRMs but didn't cost an arm AND a leg. Also, it has better voltage control options than most (if not all) B350 boards. Can recommend if you go with Ryzen.
  3. Suggestion for upgrading my PC

    Get a used i7 that fits your motherboard, make sure you have a good cooler and overclock the hell out of it. If you want more graphical fidelity, get a better graphics card. Radeon RX Vega 56 AIB cards should be coming out any second now, but maybe you can score some older used card. No need to waste money on all new parts at all.
