Things have been much better today, maybe the issue last night was that we were playing into the early morning. No brainer really. My connection has also been acting up lately, need to call charter and give them hell again Smiley LOL

 

Thanks again ND.

I'm sad to say that tonight was by far the worst for ping bars, never more than 2 in over 2hrs of play. It's never been as bad as this. In one game 3 of the enemy quit even though they where comfortably winning.

 

Sorry!

 

Oh yeah, DLC; I know that you wanted to take the time to get it right but I think the time was right this weekend. Personally this game is going to get relegated post next Tuesday, you guys have taken to long and imo have missed a golden opportunity.

For those experiencing lag.

This is purely theory based but it could be either:

 

- Your internet connection, make sure you run a speed test and see your average speed and ping is.

- Low player pool (I can't access this so I don't know how many people are playing exactly)

 

There are more things at play but I'll do these 2 points first.

 

With internet connection. If you are facing laggy people most of the time, you might want to check that it's actually the game first and not yourself. Run a speedtest on http://www.speedtest.net/, preferably pick a server closest to the US or EU as most of the matches you encounter will come from there.
You want at least 1mb upload and download. Any faster and you got it. Check your ping too (displayed in ms)

 

Low player pool, basically with a low player pool you will encounter the same people over and over. Not only that you will also encounter some severe lag. There is nothing that ND can do unless they try offer incentives for people to play such as DLC or patch updates etc.

It's still better than it has been for me. I only see late joining players having 1-2 bars. Most times it's 4-5.

So far so good.

Only ever come across a few laggy players in the few months that this game has been out. Since the LiveUpdate, only seen one slightly laggy player, but he was on my team, so meh.

Re: Live update to Matchmaking Round 2

first - thank you

secondly - I'm absolutely astounded it took this long

I played some matches last night for the first time in a LONG time, and they were much better than previous experiences. That said, who in the sam heck thought hosts 200+ ms away was a good idea in the first place!?

what was the old cap... 1500ms?

I'm in Northern Ontario, and I can ping servers at the tip of Florida at ~ 80ms. Surely the player pool in this area must be large enough to continually host quality games

major tragic you don't believe in region locking OR letting consumers have a quality gaming experience from the get go

forgive me if I'm not singing your praises for a patch like this so long after release

Is the update going to fix matching and lag? Plus the guns not working in every game  and stats not always showing the parts and kills and deaths and the almost empty boxes you open in some games? If it is I would try and play it again.
