I have 2 questions. What is phong and what does it do? What does tickrate do and if a client can set it, how much should he set it and how, or is it only server side?

    No, I never really understood it myself. I think it has to do with your connection to the server.

    Tickrate is the amount of times the server refreshes the game per second. So on a 66tick server (the standard you'll find) 66times a second the picture will refresh showing changes. It's very similar to FPS. The most obvious effect of this is that on higher tickrates your shots will be registered better (this s3rver needs mroe reg loloroflmao!11111) and so more likely to go where they were aimed and how the game intended to go. 100tick is the highest and is required for most match leagues whereas 33 is used most commonly for fun games not requiring high quality accuracy. *Note* This doesn't neccesarily mean the server will lag etc but higher tick is better. Aim for 100 but expect 66 which is prefectly normal.

    If this helped go ahead an hit that green thumbs up in the corner :]
