So, after a long time and so many issues with FIFA I found a router that works perfect with everything else, but FIFA 18.
I have done all the required tests (using UOTrace from EA website) and I can definitely say the XR500 helps with bufferbloat and LAG. But, as mentioned earlier, doesn't work with FIFA 18.
However, I am a bit confused about the cloud and I would like some clarification about how FIFA 18 works in conjunction with the router.
After purchasing the router I have always monitored who I was playing against and I made efforts not to play on latency higher than 30-40ms. In theory, the game should be P2P in FUT modes such as Divisions and Draft. And it should be server based on Weekend League and the DKT.
For the past 6-8 weeks I have been playing Division 1 and Drafts on a server in Dublin: eadpgs-ccpr0019.ea.com. It doesn't matter if I filter or spectate in Geo-Location. Which, from what EA says, it is impossible.
Now, my question is: Is the game throwing me on the server? Is it my ISP or is it the XR500? If the router shows me on the server while playing the match does it mean I am playing on the server or am I just connected to the server for "results syncing"?
Any kind of help will be much appreciated!
