The netcode can receive around ~3 MB a minute, or 60KB a second. As such, your connection needs to be at least ~533 KBps. The netcode also transmits ~175KB/minute or 2KB/second.
During game, you may receive "Connection Interrupted" while still receiving real-time updates of enemy movement (but the character is frozen and unresponsive). You can try adjusting the rate variable within the console to find the best match.

  2. File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/31700/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (31700) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
