Paid MP DLC maps? Enjoy the extra lag, folks!

Me and many other people (Eternal21 comes to mind) have explained why paid DLC maps is a bad idea for the player pool.

Unfortunately it looks like ND doesn't want to learn from their mistakes. I bet people will still complain about stealth kills not working properly due to the lag compensation BS and they won't implement a ping filter toggle either.

Before you mindlessly defend ND, try to remember that they can always make lots of money from DLCs that don't split the player pool (skins, hats, boosters etc.) and that money can subsidize the cost of the DLC maps.

I'll pass on this MP. So yeah, enjoy the extra lag and the tryhardiness! Smiley Very Happy N00bs ain't gonna buy MP DLC (they prefer SP DLC and for a good reason).

You make a good point there tap. 

Still, the MP won't necessarily be as laggy as U3. I'll try to stay optimistic Smiley Happy.

And by that, I mean I hope the player pool won't be a south american majority...

Yeah, the last two Uncharted games were such a lag fest.

I don't get how that will make the game laggy...

It divides the player pool. You would only play people who have the DLC, which means the game will have to search farther and wider to find players with the same DLC as you, which means increase in latency and, thus, lag.

Don't worry, Uncharted MP vets will get it. Smiley Wink Especially people who tried to get stealth kills in the DLC pool...

I see a lot of new faces on this forum and most of you are not aware of ND's antics regarding Uncharted MP.

TLOU MP will be even more of a "niche MP game" than Uncharted MP.

I'm no tech wiz but if the player pool is segregated match making will throw everyone it can find into the same match on opposite sides of the world creating a strain on the network to keep up with the difference in latency, connection speed.

 

There will be alot of Ice Skaters & bullet sponges pretty much.
