Something has changed with IW

Recommended Posts

This is specifically for Infinite Warfare. Took a break from this game for awhile and came back and hit detection and general game seems way off. Wondering if I need to adjust my settings so just looking for input. Could be just the game and I am have best settings for it but would love some opinions on this...

One thing I have noticed is the Dedi I use to connect to in Illinois, where I am from, no longer exists. They are connecting me to an East Coast server and when I reduce range on my duma and crank down the PA I seem to get mostly player hosts which at that point my pings are sporadic on the duma.

 

Comcast Package
Down: Roughly 75 mbs

Up: Roughly 8-10 mbs

Duma auto sets me to Reactive

 

Congestion: 70/70

Prioritization: PS4 80/80

Hypertraffic for PS4

 

Misc: Only have four of these ticked..... UPNP Forwarding, Multicast Snooping, Cookies and Turbo

Cloud Settings: both are ticked. (auto cloud and Bleeding Edge).

Strict Mode On

DSLREPORTS
Overall: A+

BufferBloat: A+
Quality: A

 

****EDIT***
Also wanted to add I am port forwarding 3074 UDP.

Not sure if port forwarding has any affect outside of NAT Type but can't hurt to mention it I suppose.

****END OF EDIT***

Duma ping ranges from 9ms to 17ms depending on host. I am assuming this is mostly for deli's. The player host, or at least I think they are player hosts, are sporadic.

I had better performing games on BO3 when I was around a 30-40 ping on average which is kind of crazy. The lower ping almost seems as though it hurts me but who the heck knows really.

Anyway, if anyone sees anything that can be improved here, would love to hear the input or even suggestions on how to test out different settings.

As far as I know the Chicago/Illinois dedi should still be operational.

I have recently tried preemptive and lowering my speeds in the bandwidth settings. I have 250Mbps Up/Down but I set it at 50 down and 15 up on preemptive. I then use hyper-traffic for the PS4.

You can turn off multicast snooping unless you have some sort of home entertainment system of sorts.

You can turn off UPNP forwarding unless you can portfoward in your modem. If you have your modem bridged to your Netduma you can just turn it off.

Also I also setup my bandwidth priority so it is spread evenly for all of the devices, which seems to be fine for me. I would test around with this for you personally and see what works best.

Definitely agreed with the miscellaneous settings you can turn off. Considering your bandwidth speeds theres no reason to prioritise your PS4 that much as games use less than 1mbps. If your NAT is open then that port forwarding rule is fine. You're getting a great ping which leads me to believe your settings are completely fine. Put your PA to 0 and you shouldn't get the east coast server any more.

I think the game is having its period,for a good few months I've been having good games good hit reg but I tried playing this wknd and I really really struggled,I certainly know how to play the game and I'm holding a 2.8 kd with 500spm on tdm but this wknd I've struggled like mad to go positive against players with less than a 1 k.d it is very strange,I gave up and jumped on bf1 and that played flawless all wknd great hit reg and smooth gameplay so I know my Internet is fine and the duma is doing its job,I honestly think there's like a time a limit where you have great gameplay before it moves on and it your turn to suffer for a week or two,I've not had solid gameplay for a few years now especially on cod but other games like I said play great everytime and that is call of duty for you lol

IW has been pretty good for me for almost 2 weeks now (I'm sure my good time is coming to an end soon) going 2+ k/d on average, getting 15 kill streaks, 40+ kill matches.

My k/d ratio is now higher than its ever been on IW.

The X-Eon is awesomes. Got 1000+ kills with it already and its my only gun with a 2.0+ k/d, even the NV4, my most used gun by far only has 1.5 k/d.

I bet anything come this wknd my connection is back to normal and I'm getting great hit reg again I wish I knew what went off because there's is certainly no consistency for me and a lot of people by the sounds of it,must be some secret

Wow Ben I thought you were bright, I now have my reservations ;)

 

I watched game play back when you were playing against boom and you were juddering, either line playing up at that time you were playing or you did not have congestion control on while somebody was saturating your bandwidth.

You know me Zen I change my mind more than my pants,nothing in my setup has changed so not sure why I've not been able to hit anything or anyone this wknd especially with bf1 playing so good,surely I'd struggle on that game too?I'm gonna have to take a look at this clip boom made sliders allways at 70 70 that's one thing I never touch I don't even put them back to 100 for downloads just leave it as it is

Same here. Most of the time I get one good week outta the month, the rest is unplayable.

These last two weeks have been the longest good play time for me. Wish it was like this all the time for me, I'd easily have a 2 k/d instead of my 1.7.

I have been having a "mare" on IW. Plays awful for me most of the time, I was beginning to think it was me! :).

But went on BO3 and it was good, for me at least. On IW I am getting a lot of

Closed lobby

Server rejected our request

Getting put in games with no team mates or opponents

Getting put in games with no opponents

Getting put in a lobby when the game is finishing

 

BUT I am keeping at it because I refuse to be beaten! Lol

when you were playing against boom

 

I'm gonna have to take a look at this clip boom made

 

I haven't shared it publicly but I'll send it to you in a message if you want.

 

It's up there with my proudest moments in CoD ever, if it could be framed and mounted on my wall then I would.

 

Pow, right in the kisser!   ;)

We won't talk about how many times you killed me in that game but you get to see one of them at the beginning of the clip.

It is all a bit odd, I haven't been able to play IW well to save my life for all but a handful of games and have pretty much given up on yet the other night with LTR7 we were coming in top 2 or 3 every single game bar 1 for over an hour. 

I actually had fun playing it. I guess it helps when you have a total nutter on your team and you're giving call outs etc.

I've been getting the packet loss symbol come up occasionally when I'm on a dedicated server lol.

Doesn't seem to interupt me much though.

Packet loss signs and everything??? I've msgd you on xbox mate allready asking after Zen truly roasted me in here and I thought we were team mates pfft

 

No, nothing like that mate, no icons showing. I didn't notice any skipping or anything in the kill you got on me at the start of the clip or in the kill I got on you*.

 

I've watched it a few times (ok, loads of times).

If anything about it doesn't looks smooth it's because we were both hitting each other, one more bullet and you'd have dropped me.

But getting that one extra bullet into Michael 'Boom' Flatley is easier said than done, as you now know.

 

*Which is quite likely going to go down in history as the greatest kill, by any person, in any videogame.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if, in the distant post-apocalyptic future, they make cave paintings about that kill, so that even when the statues (that they will no doubt put up in honour) have long since crumbled, what's left of society can sit around a fire singing about it.

 

 

 

Call out's are essential I wish more people would do this :)

 

"He's behind the tree!" Redwood, BO3.

"He's in the thing by the whats-a-name!"

I've seen it loads of times, unless you're visibly 'stuttering' then it's nothing to worry about. Not sure I trust the packet loss symbol most of the time anyway.

You'll see it a lot more in kill-cams, if you watch them, and you'll often see it explains why the enemy is all over the place.

I've run ping plotter whilst I'm playing, it shows no packet loss but at the same time the 'game health' icons are saying the opposite.

To be sure I swapped the ethernet cables to the laptop and the Xbox and it's the same, nothing showing on ping plotter but still flashes up occasionally on the xbox.

I used to play in a pretty close clan worldwide, we would play a load of private matches and names were given such as X players fridge or tent etc and the entire team knew exactly on the map what you were talking about. Sadly that is no more but ill take nut job LTR7 saying "bags look at the kill feed hahahaha by the way there coming through the cut through " Over nothing. lol :)

I actually think he's on fire at the moment, that kill, ( the famous kill ) has completely changed his gameplay, last night the Boom confidence is literally on a high, it's like he's doing the jive everygame...
