  1. Here’s what I found. Dedicated servers in black ops 4 are horrendous. The Peer servers are WAY better with the XR500. The ping is better in game and average about 25-30 kills a game with 1 or 2 deaths. I basically denied every dedicated server.
  2. I just want to make sure I have this setup correctly. I am on Xbox one S, duma classified games checkmarked and added my console. Anti buffer bloat set at Always and upload/download set to 70% i live in Los Angeles CA and have the range to 500 miles. I have it set to Filtering. It’s set to Strict mode and Auto Ping Host with Ping assist to 0. Do I need to change ping assist even though it’s in auto ping and strict mode? That part always confuses me. I don’t have it set to call of duty profile. I just want the best connection because as it stands I’ll have some good matches but then at times I’ll go 3-5 matches where it’s really high ping in game due to people from far away in the lobby. Should I change my location to the Fort Worth Texas server or Seattle server to combat anything? Or is my setup perfect? On the dedicated servers close it shows 4-12ms ping but in game I’ll be at 30-35, it is weird
  3. I just find it funny that anything outside of that you blame everything on the game and it’s code. Makes zero sense and comes off as a money grab.
  4. I honestly think this router is just a pile of garbage now. No matter what I do it still let’s in players from outside my radius to connect and screw up any game I’m in. I have gigabit internet now and regardless of overwatch, COD and now apex and anthem, it’s made my experience worse. It’ll say the host I ping to is 4ms but in game it shows 30ms. No matter what settings this or that, it’s a crappy experience. Good thing I work at a tech company and can exchange for an Asus or Linksys. The geo filter is pointless with online competitive gameplay. If I’m able to connect to just a server close to me, what good does it do if someone is able to connect to it outside of my radius and just screw it all up to me when every game has a lag comp code? So theoretically it makes no difference.
  5. So I did that very exact thing, radius to 500 in filtering mode and strict and set to auto ping. Very weird because on auto ping it was showing a 4ms ping to a dedicated server right by me but when I’d check the Black ops 4 in game network graph it was showing 40-55ms ping. And the game was pretty horrible those few matches. I’m not sure why. I wonder if I alter my speeds to 15 download but put upload to full blast it will maybe trick the games lag compensation to my favor. What do you think? Any suggestions?
  6. Sounds good. I’ll tinker with it a bit......if I’m on filtering with strict mode with ping assist off, then it will connect me to anything within that radius, but the ping will vary correct?
  7. So what if I have my radius set to 400 in strict mode and ping assist on at 20ms? Will it allow higher ping connections? Or will it still work the same and not allow anything higher than that for my connection?
  8. Makes sense. Ok that clears it up for me. Thank you
  9. Well tonight I had my radius at 500 miles and I’m baffled how someone outside the radius connected to my match and had host. I kept denying it yet it would still show on my geofilter. This happens quite a few times actually. I’ll connect to a dedicated server and for whatever reason once I’m in the match, I’m on the team with the crap connection and everyone on the other team has higher than a 2.0 KD ratio. So what’s the point of setting the settings if all it’s going to do is put me on the disadvantaged connection? I’m not even sure I’ve ever had host. For every good match I have, I’ve got to go through 3-4 matches of crap connection.
  10. Well last night it was 3ms-8ms only because I’m right by a dedicated server. But when I was shooting someone it was taking a half to full clip and I’d still die. On the killcam it shows me completely missing the target. I just have it set to 700 mile radius and I flush the cloud before each use. I don’t have any servers allowed or denied. I just let it connect me to whatever while I’m on filtering mode. It’s on strict and auto ping.
  11. So I don’t understand why I’ll be connected to a server and allow it, yet the router continually asks me to allow or deny it. also, I’m beginning to believe the router is the issue as well. Consistently it will reset my range. For everything to work as it should, on each startup I have to flush cloud and set kilometers to miles. I find it insane that tonight I had 3ms ping to a dedicated server maybe 40 miles away from me, yet I’m aiming at a persons head and go half a clip spot on and STILL die!!! And on that replay it shows me freaking lagging. WTF?!?! And zero packet loss at that!!! Does this router even do its job? No way in hell can it be me at this point as I’ve held above a 2.00 KD/R previously and now it’s dropped to 1.63. It’s just weird and I’m at a loss of words.
  12. So if I keep it in “filter mode” and don’t allow or deny anything, is that good?
  13. So if I’m based in Long Beach CA in the US, what server would you say I should connect to? Also, when I go into “find match” and I’m on filtering mode, whenever auto ping shows a server for me to allow or deny, is that within my radius? Or does that mean I’m allowing or denying something outside my radius? Because it gives me that every time. Last night I ended up not allowing anything and leaving it on filter mode and it seemed way better connection wise.
  14. Hello there, I have 50/50 fiber internet. My ONT box is right outside my window and I have an Ethernet going from that straight to my XR500 as I didn’t bother to have a bridge mode with the supplied fios quantum gateway. When I geo-filter on my Xbox one S for Black ops 4. Ill be shown a ping of 9-12ms and my base is 9ms.....my range is for 700 miles on strict and filter mode. So when I play in team death match I’m wondering how it takes half a clip to kill someone if I’m seeing a 9-12ms ping to a dedicated server. It’s not showing packet loss so I’m at a loss of words. Also, even though I’m connecting to these dedicated servers, it still seems like the connection is off. The other team will have the better connection it seems, as they’ll all finish in 2-4KD ratio, meanwhile I’m wondering how I’m on the wrong side of the connection like their bullets hit right away. Any help would be appreciated.
