Re: Region lock toggle - SUPPORT for less lag!

Since ND added the stat hat toggle, how about a region lock 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?


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.

^ Well do you have enough resources to at least consider optimising the matchmaking further?
Now it's just becoming unbearable to play games due to the increased lag in matches.

That's a shame to hear, changing the matchmaking to search based upon Legacy has increased lag significantly. Is there any solution that you can provide? Is it possible to give us a toggle for using the old matchmaking search system? Anything!

Eric not to sound condescending here but can you explain why you cant do this?

Your giving a very vivid explanation of why not.

Many have asked for this for a long time and it just makes sense.

You may not have enough players that stick around with you guys long enough to see your future projects.

 

Not doing this is crushing you fan base.

No one asked for "stat hats" man.

Couldn't this time and resources been more utilized by giving your fan base what they have asked for - for a very long time.

 

Players wanted a bit more customization not more gimmicks.

 

I whole heartedly believe many would have took a region option in place of the tournament system to no avail.


Players just want game play fixes. The only players that really want flash are new players whom will dump this title for the next '"flashy" game that hits the markets.

 

You have the ability to check the stats of the players on your game. Listen to the players that have stuck with you. Dont listen to the players that just bought the game have 10 hrs into it and think you should bend the game to them.

 

There are many players that live eat and breath this game- listen to them.
 They are easy to find.

 

Your long time fans just want a balanced game, less lag, gun fights based on skill not who have the best mods, not being split from their parties, and most of all MUCH LESS LAG.

 

Your team could have OWNED all other competition in the industry, I believe this firmly.

 

You still have the capabilities to fix this you just need to do some employee clean up.

The people making the wrong decisions need to go.

 

If anything ask your community, put up a poll, vote, let us help to make this game the way it should have been.

I sit here at my computer desk to finally see that you guys have actually discussed this! I'm so glad to hear that, it... brings tears to my eyes.

 

Now... those tears have changed from happiness to profound sadness within the exact same post. Please tell me you are looking at other solutions, then? It seems so crazy... to have overlooked this in your netcode to be unable to implement it as a toggle as a result. :smileysad:

@tln_SWE

I'm still waiting for those papers...


 

Now that this post has gained Eric's attention, tln maybe you should post your net code here for him to see.

Heck even just edit those papers you claim to have and upload it here for the developers to see.

You seem to have some inner knowledge to this so you claim. Here's your chance. No?

Re: Region lock toggle - SUPPORT for less lag!

Before the Patch i would get around 3 real laggy players that require at least 8-9 fal shots before they died around every 5 matches. Now i see this everywhere, i quit counting my shots since its pointless to do so now. I don't get kills i know i landed shots on! At times i could give a player 2 body shots followed by 4 headshots with the fal b4 they go down! This is insane! Do the developers ever play this game? I would rather have the old matchmaking since most if these "pros" are extremely laggy.

The problem is when some one is very laggy and is terrible at the game no one cares.

Now playing players that lag like *** that have 50k + kills, yeah sucks, sucks bad.
