PART 1: I've been doing some testing/experimenting with my R1 and WW2 lately and things don't seem to be working as they should be.
I wanted to test different servers to see which ones had populated Headquarters and which were empty so I started at my home server (I'm from Toronto but most often get put on the New Jersey server) and my HQ is always populated with 30-50 people.
I then disabled my geofilter, shut down the WW2 app on my PS4, moved my home location to California, reactivated the geofilter, then booted up WW2 again. In theory the router should now force the game to connect me to a server in California but it doesn't. I don't connect to anything at all. I end up in an empty HQ and if I try to find a match it says 0 potential games found. No servers or hosts show up on the geofilter at all.
By the way, Strict Mode is on during these tests.
What exactly is going on here? Why can't I connect to a server in California, or Florida, or Texas (I've tried several places).
PART 2: I decided to Temp ban the New Jersey server to see if I can get on the Ontario/Quebec server with hopes to having faster ping. The problem is the New Jersey server wont block for some reason. I have tried to Temp ban it several times and it says it works but it still connects me to that server when I boot the game. The only way I can prevent myself from connecting to New Jersey is if I have it outside of my filter range but then what is the point of the Temp Ban feature if it doesn't work?
Why am I still connecting to servers that I have Temp Banned?
Why can't I connect to any servers except for ones that are near my actual, real home location (not my geofilter home)?
