Are Treyarch on to us (Blackout)?

Recommended Posts

Probably not but...

I only play blackout, normally evenings and from the UK.

Normal order of play:

  • Set Geo filter to about 300km and place it over where I know the nearest low ping server is. London or Greece(I thinks it's a dutch server showing up in the wrong location).
  • Strict mode on
  • Boot up xbox,, start BOps and join Blackout game fairly quickly. I'm ok for 2/3 games then I struggle more and more to find a game.
  • Reboot xbox and I can play 2/3 games again but then I'll struggle again.
  • Repeat this process all night

Just wondering if this is the case for anyone else? Maybe I'm paranoid but I thought Treyarch might be blocking me, all they see is my IP address rejecting all but my Geofilter location server. I can't think why unless I'm flagging a false positive on some ant-cheat algorithm. 

If I turn Strict mode off, I get place in dedicated servers all over the world.

Cheers

I don't believe this is due to an anti-cheat function - that's never been the case for any other Call of Duty game. The Geo-Filter is smart enough to not trigger systems of this nature, and it's technically not cheating in the first place. I believe it's more likely to be the game attempting to be efficient by connecting you to different servers after a while. Difficult to tell though!

We're soon to be releasing a cloud update that could alleviate issues like this, as well as Ping Assist which should help greatly. I hope you enjoy them :D

Oh I agree, definitely not cheating, we're just choosing a server.

Either way it's no great shakes, at least I get to have a few good games before a reboot is required.

On the other hand, without Geo-filter, I don't get any descent games, it connects to me servers all over the world so thanks. I would get less lag if I sent a Telegram of the word BANG! to the server.

Cheers for the reply, looking forward to the update.

Yeh it's acting really strangely at the moment. It won't be long until we're able to push a cloud update to resolve some issues, but honestly I believe Treyarch broke something in the last patch. We'll keep you posted!

I had the same problems with duma os I returned the original R1 firmware and now everything looks great, I find games right away and I do not have to restart 10 times per night.I think to wait for the milestone update and then try again.

I apologize for the English.

Treyarch broke something indeed. That's an understatement.

To me it looks much better, the discards from the game have decreased by 90%, finding a game is getting faster and it connects me to all the dedi server in my geo-filter location. The game also has some problems but coupled with the current version of the duma os is even worse.
