Kind of like the "Lag: We need your help" bull$#!t thread.

Haha, I had warned everyone that it was a PR thread, but they didn't believe me. That's why I refused to post my (really detailed) connection stats. Now I'm here to say "I told you so!". Smiley Happy

Btw, can someone explain to me why the majority tolerates ND's lies? I remember Eric promising us spectator mode and a ping toggle for their future projects.

 

I guess it's like politics: no matter what you do, the majority will always be sheeple. Smiley Sad

This is a copy/paste from the UC3 MP thread:

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/UNCHARTED-3-Drake-s-Deception/Ping-filter-toggle-SUPPORT-for-...

Since ND added the stat hat toggle, how about a ping filter toggle as well?

How would it work:
On = find players with 5 connection bars (100ms maximum latency)
Off = find players ASAP regardless of latency

For parties it would work exactly like the DLC toggle -> only the party leader's toggle/latency would matter.

 

If the leader is from EU, it would find players from neighbouring EU countries. If the leader is from NA, it would find players from the US, Canada etc.

Who else wants this feature?

edit:

ND's response here -> http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/UNCHARTED-3-Drake-s-Deception/Region-lock-toggle-SUPPORT-for-...


There's no reason to ignore it. ND promised us this feature for their "future projects" (TLOU, ???). Read Eric's response!

 

They already plan to implement Mercenary playlists. Support this idea/thread if you want them to take it seriously and add it in a future patch.

I wouldn't even be that bummed if they never implemented a ping toggle

Just region lock the **bleep** game, and don't make server-side patches that cater to laggers!!!

Is it just me who is finding players from my region most of the time? I felt this game has a more 'regional' matchmaking than U3's.

Every single time I'm the party leader, or while playing alone, I get matched to people in my country/region.

I had rented it for the SP. You don't think I'm stupid enough to rent it for 3-4 weeks, do you? Smiley Indifferent

Yes, but what you don't understand is that we don't trust ND that they won't screw up the matchmaking priority.

The UC3 Summer beta had ping-based matchmaking, but they changed it in the retail game, because many people cried about "high levels". I already see people crying about that...

It depends on who is the party leader and when you usually play.

If it's you, you should find UK/EU players, as long as you don't play late at night.
