    Default VPN Usage: Anyone experienced using it?

    Hello, Since the Turkish IP Ban is unlikely to be lifted, I would like to get some information about VPN Usage. Google didn't return me the informations I need, so I'll ask them here. Hopefully we can make a good VPN guide for good turkish players here.

    My questions are;

    1. How much a VPN cost for a month?
    2. Do we need to buy VPN for every single user, or just buy a good VPN which can handle like 30 players at same time?
    3. Do we need to buy additional programs?
    4. Is it user-friendly to use, or do we need to type loads of IP etc. ourself on each restart?
    5. Since server is located in Germany, any recommendations where is the best option to lower ping. Can we buy a VPN from Germany to lower Server -> VPN ping?
    6. Can you write an article (or show a good tutorial in internet) which explains everything?

    I never used a VPN before. Alot of Turkish friends keeps asking that to me.

    Thanks in advance,
    Aristona

    1. How much a VPN cost for a month? depends on what u take..
    2. Do we need to buy VPN for every single user, or just buy a good VPN which can handle like 30 players at same time? a strong vpn can handle 3 players but it costs more.. else just 1 player
    3. Do we need to buy additional programs? no.
    4. Is it user-friendly to use, or do we need to type loads of IP etc. ourself on each restart? just press connect and ur in.
    5. Since server is located in Germany, any recommendations where is the best option to lower ping. Can we buy a VPN from Germany to lower Server -> VPN ping? there are USA vpn i dont know any other
    6. Can you write an article (or show a good tutorial in internet) which explains everything? if u buy u get help how to set it up so no problems at all

    About the Ping issues:

    You would definetly want a VPN in Europe.
    If you get a USA VPN you will be routing Turkey -> USA -> Server location(europe?) which can make your ping very high.
    Myself im portuguese, if I use a vpn in USA to play USKO its all good, you won't notice a difference, if you use an USA vpn to play a european server which would normaly ping 60~120, it is going to route to usa (~150ms) and back to europe which could almost double up your ping.

    Server is europe - Get a european VPN
    Server is in USA - european or american VPN won't make that much of a difference.

    it's in Germany so German VPN (I'm pretty sure there is one) would be perfect

    How much do good ones cost? We need a VPN which can handle like 4-5 players.

    I was about to order a VPN from this website:
    Hide My Ass! Pro VPN Tunnel - VPN servers world-wide (USA, UK, DE, SE, CA and more).

    Do you know any good VPN companies?
    As said, we kinda need the ones which can support like 5 players. Or, if it is only 5 usd for a singular ones (currently 11usd on HideMyAss) we can purchase 5 of them. 5 USD isn't much.

    I personally use Free UK & USA VPN , Free VPN, Hide/Change IP VPN, Unblock Hulu, Unblock ITV, BBC | HideIpVPN

    I know they specialise in 1-2 man vpns, you could always buy 2/3x of those but look around mate. That company though, I've recieve 1 troubling time where it wouldn't connect, saying its invalid, I left a support ticket and recieve help within the hour, it was night time in the USA where they're situated so they do truely have good service.

    "Free web based support" I dont think thats what your looking for.

    Anyways, just spend some (or actually a lot) of time searching and you will find one that accomodates your necessities
