WW2 server location and PA issue

Recommended Posts

Sorry if these have already been reported, was meant to post during the week. My location is Australia.

I've also started having issues with ping assist. I set my Geo pin in the ocean and PA between 35-45 and majority of games have been good since WW2 all week however yesterday and today PA is blocking almost everyone. When I click on the blocked hosts/players (yellow triangles) their ping is well below what I've set. I can only get games when I raise PA to 60+. Only thing I can think of is the initial ping to blocked players is over my set limit then settles down as I have seen that happen a few times when bringing up the ping graph.

I haven't run pingplotter yet but I ran the netduma diagnostic and all seems good with exceptional ratings for jitter and spikes with no packet loss. The game isn't unplayable but hit detection is no where near what it was before with the lower ping margin. Any help or insight would be appreciated.

you can only set your Ping Assist at your base home ping a few numbers up, if you home ping lets say is 30ms set it to 35-40ms, plus I don't think Netduma firmware 1.03.6 is configured for PA only for IW or WW2 until DumaOS release if they kept that feature, I tried PA only for IW it never worked, I had to set the PA to like 50-80ms for it to work, with location in the ocean. plus I think Activision has been changing around the servers for some time sense the launch of WW2, right now the servers are down for maintenance.

My base ping is usually 24-26ms. It was working all week until Friday when the latest update dropped. Not sure if that was a coincidence. The dedis also had padlocks on friday even though I was pinging them at around 26ms. The padlocks were gone Saturday morning then later it was P2P so assumed servers were down like you say.

sure it wasn't a coincidence, they changed something with the servers, plus when the update rolled out, the servers went offline, went strictly to P2P, try PA only with strick mode off, see if that makes a difference.

it worked but I had to have PA at 63ms so still shitty lobbies shoot first die first, instant death, I first tried 40ms wasn't able to find a lobby with strict mode off.

I couldn't get into a lobby so just disabled host filtering. Same experience as you.

 

guess I'll wait for Dedicated servers to come back up, save me the frustration with P2P connections, been 21 hours sense SHG said the Servers were going down, so hope they fix it all together, more consistent gameplays, and 1 on 1 gun fights. hoping anyways, alot to ask for.

Geo filter in the ocean and PA set at 39ms is working today but honestly it's not much better than when I disable the host filtering. Some games will be ok but the majority are still terrible. Ran ping plotter over different times during the week and today and my line was always super stable with no packet loss. After the first week of decent games I thought this would finally be the COD that didn't screw me.

If you're getting a low ping to the game, your line is stable & low and you've ensured via congestion control that you're not getting any local congestion then it will be the server. In which case I would recommend trying to force a different server.

Thanks Fraser. Congestion control is good, usually stable ping no matter what other devices are downloading/uploading. Unfortunately I believe there's only one server bank in Sydney for us Aussies so out of luck there.

strict mode off works better on this game title? 

 

Potentially for WWII, but only temporarily - until P2P and the dedicated servers properly function you should probably leave strict mode off. If however you're having a good time, leave your settings as they are!

I've never done it as there is only one server in Australia but from what others have said you tick strict mode, set PA to 0 then adjust Geo filter range so servers you want are inside the sweep and those you don't want are outside. There is also temp banning that blocks that particular host for 5 minutes I believe

The advice above is correct - once you've set up the Geo-filter that way, I'd recommend restarting the console and rebooting the Netduma before you start trying to force a server :)
