So I'm on CoD WW2 and I noticed I got put into an empty HQ lobby. I look at my geo filter and it's now saying the dedicated server I normally use is pinging at 100+ms. Umm ok. Thats strange but for various reasons it can happen.
Just sitting here watching over the geo filter page I notice another server pop up outside of my radius. An EU dedicated server. I wonder... so I ping it on the geo filter. 14ms? That can't be right. I'm on the east coast of the USA. There's an entire Atlantic ocean between us.
So i flush my cloud. Turn off/on my PS4 network connection. Restart CoD WW2. Look again... same thing. My local dedicated Vultr server is saying 100+ms and this stun.eu.demonware.net dedicated server clear across an ocean is giving me 15+/-ms.
Lets not stop there.. Let's try and connect to this supposed server. Moved my home location to right on the EU pinged server. Went to HQ. Empty HQ. Geo filter not saying what I'm connected to. So I'm assuming it failed and that was it forcing me to self-host my own HQ/lobby. Tried to join the most popular playlist right now (probably), Hordepoint. No games.
I'm at a loss for words. If any of the Duma staff can explain that would be great. I don't have time to play right now anyway so I'm going to leave it be and come back later. Hopefully my dedicated server will be back to its -20ms self again when I return.
-tried to attach a photo of the geo filter but apparently it's too large.
