When i keep my home radius small and exclude Ireland it takes around 5 to 6 minute to get a match during the day  haven't tried at night   there's 8000 people playing ranked at the moment i'd guess mostly european  because of time difference, it's not even trying to match me outside radius that often.

 

Thanks for providing those ID's, that's really useful for us until we manage to extensively test this game. It seems like UFC is similar to CoD in that it favours dedicated servers over P2P though features both. Unfortunately when the game is trying desperately to connect you to a dedicated server it can be hard to force a P2P connection, and you end up relying on the game developers improving their server infrastructure.

 

If you haven't checked it out already, I'd recommend keeping an eye on this site: http://downdetector.com/status/ea. UFC isn't listed on there though it'll definitely use the same servers - you can use that page to check if there are any ongoing problems.

 

I'd recommend trying the CoD Ultimate profile. Ignore the name - this profile could help you to connect to lower ping games since it relies solely on Ping Assist. Let me know if this helps :)

We have put out a cloud update for dedicated & whitelisted servers. Incorrect servers will be done tomorrow. So these servers are included.

 

If you're blocking all the available servers for the game then it will substantially increase your search times. Set the best radius for you balancing search times vs very good connection as not many people play the game.

Might also want to let people know before they buy that there's a waiting list for games to be in working order! but there's no timeline because you're busy with duma os  lol  what a joke that was!  so much for the cloud update i  could'nt find a single game for a half hour!  unplugged netduma  went straight to modem BOOM 15 seconds i get a game with a guy 200 miles away  wtf!   ask a question get 10 back  all smoke and mirror to hide the fact that the router itself is a piece of low quality junk!   but the reply  he's too busy with os to add any new games for me was the nail in the coffin for you guys!  anybody who buys the netduma will tell you they bought it for the geo filter and not the quality and when you're told the developers to busy right now to maintain the router  because they busy with os pfffffff  come on seriously

We're just working to give you the best support - there's no need to get angry here, we're all looking to solve your issues and help you get the most out of your Netduma :)

 

It definitely sounds like the Geo-Filter is set up too harshly for the game you're playing. Not being able to connect to a game indicates that the servers required to actually play the game are being blocked. Please provide screenshots showing your Geo-Filter page while you are trying to play the game. Make sure the map is zoomed out all the way, and also screenshot your Allow and Deny section please. We'll take a look and see if there's anything we can do!

 

If you struggle to upload screenshots here just upload them to a site like Imgur and drop a link here :)

I'd really like EA UFC 3 to be optimized and unlike the last guy I actually have the technical know how to assist and help make it happen.

 

The servers he listed are simply authentication servers that allow you to login.  They should be whitelisted per the configuration and it's likely why he had troubles as he was blacklisting them.

 

A simple configuration that whitelists those servers then allows for strict mode/ping assist would be ideal.  Especially for someone like myself that owns a XR500.

 

I can double check his server listings tomorrow night to ensure he was even looking at the right stuff to begin with.

The Netduma team will be pretty busy with DumaOS at the minute but I’m sure they will get it added for you when they get a chance.

If possible, could you grab the authentication server's IDs? Just click on them when they appear on your Geo-Filter map and copy their IDs from the ping panel that opens below. If you post them into this thread we can include them as permanently whitelisted servers in our next Cloud update.

 

Thanks for your help.
