I would like to know which device and firmware would be better for BO4, I have the R1 and the XR500. I live in northern Florida, and am constantly in lobbies with people connecting with what seems like 56k/ hotspotting from their 3g connection from the islands off the coast whenever I connect to the Miami and Atlanta server.
Speaking of the Miami server, there has to be a way to enable those of us who have spent considerable money on a "gaming" router that is supposed to "dominate lag" to be able to block connecting to specific areas. Oh, and your geofilter on the R1 needs quite a bit of work. Unless if there is a server bank off of the coast of Africa with a connection from northern Florida with a 23 ms ping.
Another suggestion is to enable us to completely nerf our connections, ping wise as well as down/up. With gibabit up and down it is a joke to try to throttle my connection through the interface, I have to use both routers to even come close.
Is it the game that is broken? Perhaps, but I can say that through owning both products for a number of years through multiple game releases the taste in my mouth is that of a gimmick that might work in certain instances, but not all.
