Ive had some issues with lobby dropping when geo-filter is on. I had it set to about 1000km, and I did notice that with it off, i connected to a server outside of that range even though i am set to US east coast server. Most of my matches connect to a server that is about 800km from me, and every so often, to one that is just under 200km from. There seem to be host circles that pop up all over the place when playing this game, and I'll see more peer ping connections than there are people in the game (some reallly bad pings at that). The ping to server line graph seems to take a while to come up, or sometimes doesnt appear at sll. Usually, the number readout for my ping to server will appear.

 

Titanfall 2 seems to work a lot better. The host map is MUCH easier to make sense of. The connction felt amazing.

 

If anyone ever dives into GOW4 settings a bit deeper please keep let us know. This is the main reason i bought the router, to solve the mystery of the GOW connection issues

 

EDIT: I found something weird, maybe part of the reason why the lobby dropping with geo-filter (especially with strict mode enabled). It seems even the nearest servers take a good route arund the contry before ended up at the server I'm connected to when i run the trace route. Interestly, I somettimes get a lower ping to a server that is farther away due to the route the traffic is taking. It seems all servers ended up back in WA, USA.

 

EDIT 2: Host ping just gave up on me tonight. No number show or graph

Thank you for the info on the ping. I noticed layer in the evening that it worked fine on my phone browser, but not on my surface pro chrome browner. I'll check the settings in chrome as suggested. Thanks again!

There is no mystery to the GOW connection, the game has a buggy engine, there was a massive post about it on their forums by a fan.

 

I have changed my speeds to the game to get A+ across the board using DSLreports, Yet it make not one bit a differnce, the game still lag comps the hell of the game.

 

When a game has 5 games, and all have the same issues, its telling you something.

 

Also though the Netduma is quite misleading, as it says 'Domiates Lag' but in all honesty, it doesnt that much. As there are to many varuailbes for it to do so,.

I wouldn't worry about bufferbloat. At 70/70 when devices are using the internet you won't have any local congestion.

 

If you're having issues I would recommend you make a post so we can help optimise your settings instead of just saying it doesn't do anything.

Ive done this whole 'make a post so we can help optimise your settings instead of just saying it doesn't do anything.' and it does noting, I was basicly saying gears of war has always been a broken MP game. There are videos out there showing how bad GOW4 is...  it has one of the worst hit detection in any game

There are a few replies in your thread that you haven't responded to so we don't know whether your issue is fixed or not. 

 

I've been playing GoW a lot recently and I don't think it's a lag issue but rather that for example the shotgun spread is random so sometimes it does more damage, sometimes less.

No your right, Gears has broken gameplay mecanics. Always has, when youve played all of them and the game shows the same issues over and over again lag has nothing to do with it.

 

Also I have repled to those questions.

Broken gameplay mechanics can often be mistaken for forms of lag when many times that's not the case. What sort of ping do you get in Gears 4?

My ping is like 25ms max, gears is broken, you only need to watch videos on there forums to see it has no servers anymore. The hit detection is a joke as were the last 5 games

It's a shame really; though you're correct, 25ms ping is excellent, we'd generally say that below 60ms you shouldn't really encounter lag. I believe the shotgun spread in Gears is weird which doesn't help; it often feels like shots don't register. I'm convinced it's down to the way they've programmed the hit detection in general.

Out of interest, what matchmaking type are you playing and your level? I've been playing it everyday since I got it for Christmas and don't seem to be experiencing the issues you describe.

We still support the game; using the Netduma with Gears will still get you the best ping possible. Getting you the best ping is all we can do; if the game has weird net coding or odd lag compensation methods then the ball is in their court unfortunately.

 

Even with technically "unsupported" games, all that means is that the Geofilter is unsupported. Anti-flood, hyper traffic etc will still give you a better gaming experience.

I'm not sure, we haven't played Gears 4 in a while! I imagine you'll still be able to choose a server in-game, so the Geo-filter would only be needed in specific circumstances.

 

That being said, Congestion Control would still kick ass :)

Does gears 4 have support in the sense that one can choose their server after the latest game update?
