Not consistently connecting to dedicated servers on COD WW2

Recommended Posts

                  I was messing around with the Geo filter in netduma trying to figure out why sometimes I would get amazing games and some were just laggy and horrible. Someone mention on the forums that you should enter the headquarters before playing or looking for a public game. The reasoning behind this, so you will be able to connect to dedicated servers which is weird. I thought we are automatically connected to the dedicated server no matter how we start our game, but by doing this it was an amazing connection. I was connected to a Texas dedicated server and you would know this because it's a huge single circle, it would say temp band, and also it would sometime be the only big circle on the Geo filter. The gameplay was amazing, I even achieve my first V2 rocket. To stay on that dedicated server I had to stay in the lobby. If I tried to leave it would eventually search for another game and 5 out of 10 it would put me in a peer-to-peer lobby or another dedicated server. I even tried temp band most server and just connect to one. That doesn't do any justice on trying to consistently connect to the dedicated server. COD WW2 just really throw us all over the place when it comes to connecting to a dedicated server. I didn't have the netduma before black ops 3, but I knew bo3 wasn't bad when it comes to connecting to a dedicated server because it would tell you at the top right corner.

 

I have to sometimes just back out of games until I get on a dedicated server.

 

 

What are you guys opinion on the subject?

I'm going to point you to a video and do this to every cod game to see the servers.

yeah, and still didn't get put on the dedicated server. the only that i get on one is to shrink my filter range down so low, and even then I still an peer to peer connection. 

It happens to me sometimes too, this game is not going to always put you in one. The best way is to keep backing out and keep trying to join one which is a pain. I live in Alabama and most of the time I get put in Georgia, Florida, and Texas. I turned strict mode off because I notice that it's not going to always connect you to that dedicated server unless you stay in that lobby and constantly check you geo filter to make sure you're in that dedicated server.

video is pointless, you can join a lobby and then click on the dots, none of them dedicated servers.

I don't see how, when I join them I get some insane gameplay. Also, the circle gets really big. That's how I know that I'm in that server, also that would be the only circle on my geofilter. I achieve 3 v2 rockets now.

This seems like a very strange way to secure a dedicated server, though I wouldn't expect it to be around for long. I reckon Sledgehammer will patch this out soon.

 

Did WWII have an update recently to make this the case, or have you always been able to secure a dedicated server by going to the headquarters first?

When I had this issue, it was because of the modem I had. Not saying this will help you, but it helped me. I also had a problem with the geofilter not being consistent on strict mode, again solved by changing modems. Mod box on here has posted plenty about modems so do some digging before pulling the trigger.

that's because you have your filter super small. which forces you on them servers.

Mines is 2491.00km, it actually plays worst when my geo filter is small. I also have ping assist on 30, I notice if I have it too small it's not going to always connect to that particular dedicated server for some reason. That video with the servers always gets big throughout my games letting me know which one I'm connecting to, the only way I know it's peer to peer is when the circle are not big and I see a couple of small circle on the geo filter and neither one of them are big.

I always go to the headquarter first, but today I tried not to and I did connect to a dedicated. Yesterday, I open my Geo Filter to about 2491.00km. That basically covers most of the dedicated server in the United States with my ping assist at 30ms. What so weird, every dedicated server I got in to was around my region, I'm assuming because of ping assist, also I had a peer to peer game and It felt unbelievable. But what was weird, that it was a big circle around California and it wasn't a dedicated server. Most of the players in that game were in the eastern part of the United States. I played team deathmatch, and out of 10 matches, I was number one and only had 1 death out of yall those games. Every player in the lobby was reacting really late when I appear. I live in Alabama, and the host was in California, But I do have my home set in the middle of the United States with strict mode on. If I was a host, why did it appear in California?

You'll know if you're the host as all the circles should be the same size and larger than usual. If there is another host, their circle will be significantly larger than the rest. If you saw a large circle in California it's pretty unlikely that you were actually hosting the game.

 

According to some, CoD WWII plays pretty well even with the Geo-Filter disabled now, so I'm guessing that the servers are finally in a stable state. I'd still always recommend keeping the Geo-Filter enabled for CoD though as it's pretty ideal for matchmaking of that nature.

Could you show me an example of the circle so I can get a good visual of it?

This is an example of how the game host should look - it should be quite noticeably larger than the other circles. (the circle in Ireland).

The largest host on the map is always the host of the game. You yourself do not appear on the map.

 

If you are the host of the game, every circle will be the size of that circle in Ireland on the picture I shared, and they'll all be the same size.

 

So if you're in a game and you see a big circle, that's either another player hosting the game (if the game is peer-to-peer) or it's a dedicated server. :)

why are your circles  green,dude  mine all red ,,  i like green .

 

The colour of circles on the map is dictated by where you add the device at the top. The first slot is red, the second green, the third... Yellow? I think? And the last one blue. (I think). Have fun!
