I just tried entering with geo on and the area selection covering all of Europe and Asia. I tried 10 times and each time it blocked a Mid U.S server.

definitely an EU Dedi, hard to say if either the Netherland one or the Ireland one since both give me 60ms

Hi all,

 

I'm considering buying a NetDuma router but before I did I wanted to ask how it works with Halo 5. I'm sick of playing on US servers and wondered how well the router performed with regards to blocking the US servers and allowing EU players to play on the EU servers?

 

@Netduma Fraser - I saw you asking users for information relating to what servers they were being connected to. I just wanted to bring this URL to your attention as it seems to detail the IPs for the Azure Datacenters world wide: https://www.microsof...s.aspx?id=41653. You might have seen the URL or it might not be useful but I thought I'd post it anyway.

 

I'd appreciate some information on how well the router works with Halo 5 to help me make a decision.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Spec

That database is already on the cloud :) I don't know anything about Halo, but others on here play it (including the Iain the lead dev) so should be able to comment on it's effectiveness in the EU.

Just as a little update we're testing something for Halo that looks promising to try and get EU hosts.

Good news :-). Let me know if you need any guinea pigs for testing.

 

I've currently limited the Geo Filter to 130ms ping and have to play most of my games on Eastern US servers, the matchmaking system just does not want to put me in EU games if I limit it further. I do get the odd game on an EU server and it is night and day when that happens.

Iain just cheekily teased a permanent EU host via twitter, stop doing this to us Iain and release it already ;P

the H5 Netduma community is thirsting for EU dedis for too long now :)

Server location shown: Mid US

Ping: 35ms, should be in melbourne or sydney? (sydney originally was circled)

My location: Australia

 

Strict enabled gets the matchmaking all done, but the game server is identified 15,200KM away is blocked.

Hi everyone!

 

I do not own a NetDuma router however I thought it may be beneficial for me to stop by on these forums and share some of my findings in terms of Halo 5's Server Selection as I have been working on blocking US servers for a considerable amount of time.

 

I never knew there was a router that had the features of the Neduma so I purchased an RJ45 to USB adapter and I ran my Xbox directly into my PC to connect to XboxLive. I then found a link to Microsoft's Azure Servers list and I blocked around 800 foreign IPs both Inbound and Outbound in Windows Firewall. This has had limited success as I was still connecting to servers located in America but matchmaking times were longer and I was connecting to EU servers more often however this could be placebo so I needed to do more digging. 

 

I started multiple Xbox Live accounts to check what IP's I was connecting to on a NEW account as from experience when you start a new Gamertag for Halo 5 you are extremely likely to connect to an EU server for your first 2-3 games.

I used an IP sniffer to check the what data was being sent from which IPs and to my surprise there are around 16 IP addresses that show up many of these are from Xbox Live's services however some of them don't send much data and could be for controller settings or armour customization etc. 

I now have a few accounts levelled to Onyx in Slayer, what I have been doing is searching in matchmaking and if the game is laggy I scan for IP's and screenshot the program my plan is to collect enough of the US server IP's to then add them to the full block list and hopefully this will resolve these issues. I have blocked around another 30 IPs since I have been scanning and today I have three EU games in a row and one of those games was high level Onyx with US players in the lobby, although this has really pissed me off that 343i has put me through doing all of this just to get a fair game is it weird that I'm actually kind of enjoying trying to solve this problem? I feel like I'm getting somewhere with this however if I hit another brick wall I think I just will need to throw money at you Netduma guys and demand a result!

 

Thanks.

Hey Steve that is very interesting thanks for sharing. We actually added that entire Azure list to our cloud. 

 

Whilst I don't want to promise we can solve the issue we can successfully block US hosts so you don't get into a US game at all and after a while you can force it to go to a EU host. Which is good, we're still working on it though :)

Steve just yesterday Iain teased that he sort of solved the issue by only connecting to EU servers

he didnt specify how long the matchmaking search needs but im sure we get more infos on it very soon :)

H5 with EU servers would be so awesome, im really starting to get sick of all the US servers i have to play on!

 

here the tweet

I'll be keeping an eye on this topic, and I'll be waiting for this EU only Halo 5 magic. so until then those €194.99 will be waiting until this update is live and working.

I've sadly a brick wall in trying to block US servers on Halo 5:Guardians... Are you NetDuma guys having any luck? I give up now and I am ready to purchase the R1 but this is the only game I play so will need to keep a close eye on this thread.

Thanks

Hi,

 

I have a Netduma and play Halo 5, I live in the UK. With the latest public firmware (1.03.5) using Geo-Filtering and Ping Assist I can block the US servers but it takes longer to find a game outside of peak hours. Currently I play with the Geo-Filter on and Ping Assist set to allow me to connect to east coast servers which have around a 100 to 120 ms ping, this isn't ideal but is the next best thing to being able to play on EU only servers.

 

Cheers,

 

Spec

We're testing a unique Geo-filter service currently for Halo 5. What I can confirm so far. Can successfully block US hosts without getting negative rep. We can get US hosts after a certain amount of times searching - we're working out the average times you have to search to get an EU game currently.

Hi all,

 

I have a few questions and requests if any Netduma users or staff could reply with as much information as possible.

 

1. How much configuration is required to set up the Netduma router to find EU servers? I'm quite tech savvy but a step by step guide would be really useful for me and those who aren't quite as good at this type of thing.

 

2. Could you please confirm the process for finding games and what happens when searching in both Arena and Warzone. If you could provide a simple step by step guide for each scenario it would be really useful for all potential new customers.

 

3. Where is the best place to buy a Netduma router? Is the Netduma R1 the only or best router for finding EU servers for Halo 5? How much does it cost if we purchase directly from Netduma?

 

And one more from me personally...

 

I have a pretty poor internet connection. I'm currently with Sky but the best connection I can get regardless of ISP is approx 4mb down and 1mb up, however my connection does either drop down to 2mb or disconnects completely on a regular basis. I have an ongoing investigation open with Sky tech support and will move ISP if not resolved soon, however regardless of this, would a Netduma still be of benefit to me given my relatively slow download speeds?

 

Any help and advise would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance  B)
