    Weird, that seemed to work. A factory reset didn't work but that did. Thanks for the suggesting.

    From my limited knowledge on this subject, my understanding is strict or moderate will just limit the people that you can play against so perhaps its and inadvertently matching you up with other players with poor connections (or vice versa) putting you at an advantage or other more competitive players that might have been matched up with you via matchmaking that have an open nat aren't being considered. Just one theory, in the past there were times I was on strict or moderate when I wasn't paying attention and I had some really good games but that didn't last. COD feels like it changes it up on you mid game sometimes. I can start a match and everything feels crisp and on point and once I start racking up kills, people become bullet sponges and this seems to happen often for some reason, this game is so bi-polar.

    Yes, everybody is having problems with WW2. I spent most of the evening looking at a loading screen and a big chunk of the rest of the time being stuck on various other screens. When I finally got games they were high ping crap and P2P.
     
    You've obviously not seen Twitter, you should check it out. Activision sometimes write stuff on there about their servers and people write things back to them.
     
    Until Activision / Sledgehammer sort out the HQ and the matchmaking servers this is how it will be.

    I only bothered playing half a game because it was so poor. I still can't be certain whether it impacts the game or not - it seemed to in IW - but the prelobby host was jittering from 40-180ms and the only guy to take 15 seconds to climb to a three bar after spawning was skipping and unkillable, while I was on 8ms to the server.
     
    Dunno if I can bring myself to try it again hahaha

    Anyone else seeing really big lag spikes in duma for the servers. 

    I have a ping plotter at 12 ms to 20 ms on average to 8.8.8.8 but when I am connected to a server on COD WW2  that is relatively near me meaning within 500 miles, I am getting pings jumping from around 12ms to 100+ ms. In one game I had over 125ms but I think the whole throttle argument played to my advantage there since no one could kill me, LOL! Fortunately I ruled out the throttle technique since it usually seems to work against you, although, in that game play it didn't, I was running a 2 bar in that game and dominated. The next game, nothing registered so eh, whatever.

    Is this a COD thing or is there an inconsistency within the duma readings. I did update to the newest firmware 103.6i.

    Game play on COD WW2 is sporadic in performance just like every other COD so no surprise there, that is when the menus and all the other launch issues are there.
    Anyone experience similar issues with WW2 COD, PS4 if that matters.

    Dumas cloud corrects the dedicated servers locations so the geo filter can work as it should. I believe the latest cloud update push was for Destiny 2. On the bottom of the misc. section on your duma are the cloud settings, for auto cloud updates leave bleeding edge and enable auto cloud checked.

    Just a heads up, that worked beautifully. Thank you.
     
    Will be seeing if this issue returns. I did learn that the IP that was banned is one I had for a long time so something with my network must have caused it and it had to happen during the time playing WW2. I will have to keep a close eye on it. This all did happen right around the time my duma ping was going nuts so not sure if that is related. It does concern me as I have manual ports open on PS4 and since it was PS that banned the IP I am suspicious of that. Don't know much about networking so this is all beyond me. Hopefully it was fluke but if not, we shall see I guess.

    DumaRocks got a reaction from ColonicBoom in Doing some testing with ping plotter   
    Gotcha, makes sense. I did it in part cause I was interested to see if there were spikes during game play between the lower or higher settings. I am probably in a unique situation where I am the only one using the line and it is unlikely I would be doing something that would hit it hard while gaming at the same time but I suppose streaming youtube might be a possibility. Maybe I will add that to stress test it next time.
     
    The only variable I can't control is neighborhood traffic since it is cable I suppose the congestion or potential bottleneck there could cause problems but not much I can do about that, right.
     
    Yeah, if you have anything to post, that would be interesting to see other peoples results. Obviously, don't go out of your way to do but if you happen to have one to throw up, would love to see it.
     
    Next round I will test it against higher settings to see if the consistency holds up.
    Thanks

    DumaRocks got a reaction from ColonicBoom in Doing some testing with ping plotter   
    Been awhile since I tested multiple settings with ping plotter. Just curious so while I was playing BO2 on XB1 and enjoying all that crazy visual lag and hacked lobbies you can expect when playing against 360 players I was running my ping plotter in the background.
    Just for kicks I decided to test against modified CC settings.

    One set over 10 -20 minutes with CC 70/70 reactive
    Second test 10 - 20 minutes with CC 20/30 (down/up) Pre-emptive.
     
    Used comcast to test against and even though my ping in most games tends to be from 10ms to 20ms according to duma, against comcast it seemed to average about 35ms.
     
    The difference on both of those settings were similar without any major spikes that I could tell. The norm was about 32ms to 37ms fluctuation with an occasional 40 - 45 ms jump. With these tests I only think I saw one larger spike above 45 which jumped to about 50ms over about 30min to 40min of testing.

    Curious on what types of spikes others see during their test. Got me think too, is the 70/70 cc Reactive really necessary. At least with ping results on ping plotter, I seem to have the same amount of spikes when dialed all the way down to 20/30 and ping doesn't change. 

    Would love to know if there is a way to reduce that 32ms to 37ms jump or maybe even the more rare sporadic spikes going up to 45ms or with those ranges should I not really see much difference in game? That seems pretty consistent but than again, I have nothing to compare that too.

    By the way, I did find the solution. Thanks for the link Fraser, I think that link provided the issue. There is a conflict with UPnP, port forwarding, Geo filter all being used in some fashion. I don't know exactly which combination was causing it but just did a factory reset, put back in all my original settings and am paying close attention to this as I test different setting variations to try to solve an issue I am having with COD.

    If I had to guess it is COD, the game just plays really crappy online. I have my system setup to the best I can on my side and I get 11ms to 17ms almost consistently for COD and Overwatch when I am on a dedi for COD. When I compare the two, on a dedi in my home state for COD and compared to a dedi half way across the country for Overwatch, CODs performance is still laggy and plays very poorly in comparison to Overwatch that almost plays flawlessly.
     
    I have no idea why but had same issues with BO3 on a different console. However they create thier game, they are messing something up.

    1) The only reason for using the netduma is for congestion control.  That is if your network is causing congestion/ping spikes while you are gaming with Titanfall 2.
     
    2.) No. Titanfall 2 will select the best dedi based on ping but you can always manually change it to any dedi available. 
     
    3.) Titanfall 2 > Infinite Warfare (Honestly to me Advanced Warfare is better than Infinite Warfare lol)
