I read the that reactive is for 60mps or more. idk if that matters. also i noticed on my geofilter, "peer ping" and "strict mode" are not checked. what do these features do and should i have them checked?
Those were early estimations, and they are more of the generic, out of the box type of settings. As the product is being put to more and more use, across more and more sample games, we are constantly trying to refine them with current data. Test them both, regardless of your speed, you may find something that works even better.
'Peer Ping' is a neat little toy that Iain and the boys added. This will give you a bar chart with the average ping, in game, of those you are playing against. I personally don't use it, because I have a small case of OCD and every time something weird happened, I would look over for some "offending cause" at the Peer Ping graph. Use at your own gaming risk....LOL
'Strict Mode' - This is important. The Geo Filter is a suggestion. You are circling an area and you are saying "NetDuma, I would LIKE to have my host in this area as it's close to where I want to play/where I live". The 'Strict' mode says you ONLY want games hosted inside that filter IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. BO3 has some issues because of the locations of the large dedicated server banks, so at times this will fuck with the Geo Filter and the strict setting.
Basic idea: If you have good games inside the Geo Filter, and you don't want to play halfway around the world or have your buddy 3 time zones away host, leave 'STRICT' ticked and make your Geo-Filter a decent size to be able to accept game hosts outside just a dedicated bank.
What browser are you using? Chrome is the preferred browser.
Edit: Deny and Allow will be populated by you. When you rate a host, that host will get a white circle in the red, black or green section based on the numeric value you assigned. Move sliders to allow games from hosts that have that rating or higher. I.E., if you want only P2P hosts that you have rated well, give them all a 90+ rating and move your red slider up to 89. This will tragically reduce your number of available hosts, but it will give you connections to hosts you like.
