GazCBG posted a topic in Off TopicHi, What settings are you using/recommended for the Ping Assist and Geo-Filter? What distance do you have on your Geo-Filter and are you leaving it in Filtering mode all the time? PS. I am using the NetGear XR500 if it differnet on the R1. Regards, Gaz
.... Ping Assist doesn't seem to work. As shown in the image below, lots of peers with high ping are allowed, even though they are way above my 30 ms threshold. Nevertheless I will never join a dedicated server when I circle a dedi-free area, which (in my case) is awesome. I have good games, to the point the opponents rage quit. It's 100% p2p because the capital "E" (indicating a dedicated server in the lobby) does not exist. I've also noticed that the in-game ping meter is missing. I know for you guys it's frustrating when you can't join your favorite dedicated server, but try to force p2p. I think it's the only way to deal with this matchmaking mess. I can't remember when was the last time COD would allow p2p a month or so after launch. it seems that the game is overpopulated, so there is loophole for p2p. thank God.
I'm not convinced that the Ping Assist feature is working as I expect it to. Since it's hard to reliably locate players/hosts in specific regions I've been running tests to various websites on ports 80 and 443. I'm getting mixed results: I can't block any traffic on port 80 (Ping Assist of 60ms still allows me to communicate with a site that has 350ms ping as reported by the R1) and port 443 only seems to respect the geo-filter, I can't communicate with anything else regardless of the ping values. To get started, can you help me work out why: Host ID: 9d2bcf9ac83ce0e5 (average Ping of 55.8ms from me as reported by the R1) can't be connected to over port 443 with a Ping Assist of 300ms?
