Ping filter toggle - SUPPORT for less lag! [60+ kudos]

[ Edited ]
143 replies 3599 views Edited Aug 7, 2013

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.

Or just go back to how we had it pre-live update. That was perfect.

 

I guess ND can't really alienate the lag community, though.

Actually, rightnnow it is how you described it.
I keep finding italian players ALL the time.
I only find foreign players when my party leader isn't italian.
So as of right now it kinda work this way.
We have to judge the matchemaking when players will leave this MP.
As for lag, i've seen and increase in it but that probably has to do with poor connections, even if those players are from my country (we have the worst connections in europe).

You are probably right, but the problem is that ND may change the matchmaking priority in the future, just like they did in UC3 MP (ping based -> rank based). It's always good to have an option for the future. Smiley Happy

I hate lag and since I have a high speed connection they lag even more. ND wants everyone to play their multiplayer even if the person lagging has an unfair advantage

I'm for this, but with perhaps a fiddly change to your language.

Toggle on: find five bar connections.
Off: find match regularly. NOT find quickest. I think there is likely some effort to have low latency, and I don't want that obviated.

Sounds great but IF/When this gets implemented all of us who uhm need/prefer English when listening to people on the mic and are living in a country where English isn't the native language will suffer from severe community outcasting (just a word I made up). This would then become like how blops 2 was.

 

I only heard Arabic Smiley Sad As for now, I have made quite a few friends who don't mind playing with me irrespective of my accent or my location Smiley Happy In any case, I am sure a toggle like this would probably help. I really hope there isn't any lag compensation that gets added as part of this. I sold blops 2 within a month because of region based matchmaking. Not sure if that really helped the folks though.
