After testing the update: I still get mached with people with 0,1, or 2 bars of ping, most of them are from other continents...
Well, that would be because it isn't out yet. Unless they decided they wouldn't change the version number.
They don't always change the version numbers. The supply box locations were changed without a version update. Makes you wonder what else they change without a version number change and without telling anyone.... hmmmm
Nobody plays TLoU MP anymore. It is really becoming a ghost town and theres not much ND can do about that.
The reason people are getting paired up with laggy players on a more frequent basis is because the player pool has diminished a lot.
Mystery = Solved
Didn't have the greatest experience last night, was matched up with mexican players and had two 1 bar players on the enemy team that had magical abilities. The second match was better, but there was a zero bar player in the lobby which always seems to throw everything off... like we got totally out of sync with the host at the end of the match, and everybody that died stayed dead with their nametags still above their bodies until we all just lost connection. Bummer.
I was playing in a party, and my party leader was from southern texas so I'm hoping that was the issue. I'm going to try playing tonight by myself and see if things are better.
@ND devs: What's the equivalent of 200ms in connection bars?
Seconded, I'd love to know more about the connection bars.
