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?


We are well aware of this and we have discussed adding as well. It's something that might not be possible given how our matchmaking system works. Our time and resources for this might be too tight to make it happen. This feature is something we are definitely going to try to make work in future Naughty Dog projects


I hate to say it, but one of your "future projects" (aka TLOU) doesn't have a ping filter toggle. Smiley Indifferent

They probably couldn't implement this because they were/are too busy working on Uncharted 4 now. And once we play Uncharted 4 they're too busy to implement good ideas and fix problems because they will be working on TLoU 2 or something else... Smiley Tongue

 

Seriously though, I'm shocked that a ping filter isn't at least an option in the game. In the next generation of consoles, the option for a ping based matchmaking should be a standard. Hell it should be the standard already...

Heh, Even if TLOU was optimized for ping without a filter, they sure broke that...

 

This thread will be more about how ND favor the player with the worse connection.

 

You have a bad connection? You deserve to freeze, get killed without knowing about it and so on, you are the lagger, if you want to be equal, get better connected.

well did he late join the match? from what I heard late joining sometimes causes players to do double damage outside of the powerplay for the entire match. Which then leaves the scary thought of what these steroid injected players are like DURING double damage rofl. Quad damage?

If this don't happen, I will be unable to play the multiplayer. In fact, a lot of people will do the same most likely. Especially people like me who use DSL, since its signal can get weak all of a sudden. My internet works fine online with other games, (even Battlefield 3 doesn't have lag with me) but not this one. It never hurts to have options. I hope they consider this.

Anybody can be everybody else. If it's morally right, it's the right thing to do.

In my opinion, I think that Uncharted 3 Multiplayer is better than Call of Duty, except for the lag, especially with the intros to some maps. I like the idea of the intros but at the same time it causes the game to lag which is never a good thing...

I too am getting this random freeze every few seconds, and am glad I'm not the only one.

 

I ran SpeedTest.net, and it returns:

8ms PING

20.85Mbps Upload

4.29Mbps Download

 

I've rebooted my router and my modem, and my PS3 is the only thing on the network.   It is wireless on my router, because I can't do a cable based on locations/walls.   I've been playing the game in MP for the past couple of weeks, but it only started freezing up in MP this past weekend (July 20th/21st)
