Are you playing WWII on PS4? Your settings are very strict, meaning you won't be able to find any servers outside the radius. If you increase Ping Assist to maybe 30ms - 60ms, you'd be able to connect outside the radius. Consider increasing your radius to 1000km as well as your radius is very small to be able to find games consistently.

Untick Strict mode and up your PA to say 30.

i think your missing the point, it is going outside the geo filter with it being set to active and on games like lawbreakers, fornite, pubg, etc on both xbox and ps4?

 

Nornail when the filter is on you see the servers or connections the netduma is blocking, yet its not doing it. also games like fornite that used deadicated servers are coming up like peer to peer?

If I'm not mistaken, you can select a server in-game on the games you have mentioned? If you can, it's not advisable to use the Geo-Filter since you can just select the best host on the screen. The Geo-Filter is best used for matchmaking / peer-to-peer games like Call of Duty or Destiny 2.

 

It's also worth noting that every game has different net-code. These games are likely not showing any servers being blocked due to how the game chooses to connect you. If you can select the server in-game, this would also be a reason for the Geo-Filter not behaving as expected.

You can not select any servers in fortnite, pubg? also as I have stated the connections showing that you connect to are peer to peer not deadicated servers, as i can not temp ban any on those games.. I tnow seems the geo filter is becoming useless on many gamers that only has matchmaking.

Judging by what others have said on the forums about Fortnite and Pubg, the Geo-Filter is probably incompatible with these games. I'm not sure about the console versions, though I know there is a 'region select' in those games and their server infrastructure is limited, meaning the game will only really attempt to put you on a few select servers.

 

The Geo-Filter can still be used to find out your ping to the host and see what's going on, though I'd recommend disabling it when you play these games unless you wanted to experiment. The Geo-Filter is after all just part of the feature set - it's not needed on all games.

When your playing fornite or pubg, the connections of other gamers are sooo bad, as this is the UE4, its known for having major lag comp for players with bad connections which is why using the geo filter is needed way more as connection across the pnd are bad.

From my tests (I've tested PUBG more than Fortnite) it doesn't look like you'll be able to use the Geo-Filter as you select the region on the game and then you'll most likely be connected to one server in that region. The whole premise of a 100 players on a single game concurrently will have its issues from time to time. Make sure you're using Anti-Flood and Hyper Traffic to ensure the connection is as good on your end as possible.
