Ok so I’m having a lot of success getting good hit detection and great games putting my location around dedi servers and assist at 0. Preemptive dL 25-35% ul 35-45% on a 100/20 fiber connection I’ve kept googles dns, but went back to wired connection after the recent updates. If any bodies curious I’ve tested near every possible duma configuration at this point from Cincinnati Ohio so don’t hesitate to ask if you wonder about other settings. I’ve owned duma for over a year, but just joined the forum.

 

This is great and the games much more fun, but my question is what’s with the lobbies full of parties being the lowest ping lobbies I’m matched into. I’m fine with that at least it’s a fair fight and if I get outgunned even by multiples it’s better than insta death, but I play solo so it’s making some modes tough. Seems like when I use servers to my advantage I almost always am placed in huge party lobbies solo, but if I just use my location or turn geo off I maybe see a party of a couple. Anybody else notice this?

 

No complaint it’s making me improve and strategize, but just seems odd. Wouldn’t most parties from all around have higher pings generally due to distance and location more times than not? I’ve not partied up in WW2, but I’m curious if others are having better gameplay in parties which is kinda backwards as usually it causes lag a bit or hit detection issues in my experience? Happy hunting duma army.

Still working on expeditionary prestige here, the rest are silver or gold, but I have a tough time staying with expeditionary if I die a couple times and jump to one of my go to classes. Did finally make an expeditionary class with rifleman adding a type 100 I’m enjoying in dom and Hardpoint though, so should have it soon.

Yes sir, I know it’s out of the ordinary, but for whatever reason ordinary settings to give me an excellent across testing get me severely penalized online. If I do the normal reactive with 70/70 which has been high in IW and other as well for stable consistent games for me, I get insta killed repeatedly. Seems very situational in cod what works best, even different times of day and each update I end up trying different settings and at this point this is the best I’ve come up with, they still have a long ways to go for folks not setup to adjust so much to be consistent, but I’m having mostly great games as long as I don’t worry about my connection being perfect. I don’t throttle down to nothing like some folks are trying, but there seems to be a sweet spot (like country average speeds maybe?), where you don’t get hit so hard with lag or lag comp I truly believe at least so far in WW2. There’s just too much difference in my play in my experience for it to be placebo or just luck of the draw lobbies.

Hey there,

 

It's crazy but i was about to post exactly the same post as you.

I tweaked a lot my DUMA and finally today found some consistency in my games by making the roughly the same adjustments as you except that i'm not on the Google DNS and my congestion control are 20% DL cap and 25% UL  cap / preemptive/ Turbo mode enable, and i put my ping assist at 60ms. i'm gonna give it a try for the ping assist at 0ms

 

I live in Toronto so i believe i'm on the New Jersey server.

My bandwidth is 130/20 - with Roger

 

And i agree, the game the really much better like that, i dont win all my gun fights but it's fair at least.

I usually do it whilst in lobby searching for a game.

 

Start with the one nearest you unless you know it's a rotter.

 

Set approximate home location

Ensure geo filter enabled and a fairly wide distance search

Hopefully game will connect you to a dedicated

Play games

 

If you find the server sucks, temp ban it and try again

 

Once you have an acceptable server you can plonk your home on it and reduce your search distance

 

If you have a few put your home location in the middle so search covers them all

 

Good clear instructions on the duma website to help refine further

Wouldn't it be easier just setting device prio to 30% on your console with preemptive or does capping it that low actually make a difference cause I been running device prio this whole time and just splitting up bandwidth between devices and using preemptive really... guess its time for change although tbh guy that mentioned turbo mode with preemptive you can give it a shot but I don't think it'll do anything at all if you have both those options on or at least I never noticed a difference but I've tested my bandwidth with both on & it records the preemptive speeds only even with turbo on so its always like 35 down or under really when preemptive is on even with turbo

Glad others are finding some success as well cause it’s been beyond frustrating trying to tune in these settings to just have fair gun fights. I’m still experimenting cause seems like things changed a bit yesterday for me at least so please others having success post what settings your using and your location.

 

Seems trial and error is the only way to make this game consistent cause simply having the best connection is just not working in WW2 period. To be honest about preemptive and turbo I just never un ticked the option so I may try it without, each update and different game I’ve gotten such different results I’m still trying to fine tune what’s best. Just trying to give a starting point to folks unsure having terrible issues like I had early on to hopefully keep others from the headache.

 

Far as server from Toronto there’s a few up that way in Canada I believe so I’d try a each to find the best one personally, that said I can tell by accent and the flag calling card I do get matched up with a lot of folks from Canada so jersey may well still be your best option.

How do i set my location to a dedicated server? I don’t see one when i’m in the Geofilter? Or do i need to do this while in a match?

 

Sorry tried to post a map, but there is one posted here in the forum give me a minute.

I live in florida. I have a 300 down and 25 up speeds. Im struggling with this game. Its supper inconsistent. Pre emtive for some reason makes have packet loss. HELP!!

It’s been a bit off since yesterday for me again as well, but not horrible and I’m doing decent most games. Takes a while to find a game this way occasionally, but bring your sliders way down on reactive if preemptive causing issues and put your location at that Florida server or try the one near Atlanta with 0 ping assist and strict on, if your speeds really good it seems to be bad for this game, it feels to me like I’m being overcompensated at 100/20 so I’d bet you are too which is odd normally and the main reason I started the thread. Seems best case for this games much different than best case for my connection at the moment. Hopefully you have better luck with reactive than I had, right now I’ve unchecked turbo mode as well after it was mentioned above and put ps4 back into hyper and it seems better for now. Good luck

I am in Seattle [Renton], have 250dn 12up. With or without my trusty R1, I get shot, then see the enemy 9000 seconds after that. I have 1-2 good games, then 10 bad ones.

It's. As always in CoD, the guy w/ killer internet gets effed. My ping is 9ms so I'm always host in most of em. 

Has anyone posted a WW2 Party Settings yet? I can't find one.

Wow this game is soooo picky with settings and it seemingly changes every couple days, on top of that my youngest decided he wanted to play on my monitor and laptop instead of his ps4 while I went to the dentist and unticked enable cookies so my settings got reset. Thanks lil buddy, lol anyway I’ve finally got a few good games in a row again so after more testing this evening I’ll post an update of what’s working well for me again. If everybody is having as rough a time finding what keeps consistency as I am I’m betting some folks could use a starting point again since things seemed to have changed since my first post and there’s no real solid info on what’s optimal at the moment.

 

Again if your having a great experience post what’s working for you as I’m sure different locations will vary quite a bit as picky as things seem now.

 

Oh and Kanky I’ll add ya, I’m just trying to nail down settings so I don’t look like a noob after seeing your v2 vid, my son reset mine right after I wrote you last time. Don’t want to make ya carry the team if I join ya bro. Lmfao

The only consistent thing I am seeing is inconsistency. 

 

Reckon some Director at Sledgehammer used to run a casino. No only do we have the blatant Loot Box gambling but the game runs like slot machines. Have an hour of bad games, on the cusp of drop kicking the dual shock 4 through the conservatory window when you get a good game (positive KD) then spend another hour of bad games chasing another good game. The net code is probably as simple as "if player has been whipped for an hour give an in game advantage otherwise continue to be whipped"

 

Like gambling, its only the house that always wins

Sadly sounds pretty accurate and I was patient a while, but patience is wearing a bit thin since they’re happy to intro micros but not fix things like Gibraltar glitch which destroys objective games like dom or this terrible hit detection which makes skill about as important as the rapid fire attachment isn’t. A lot of potential being drowned by greed at this point.
