P2P, how do they really work

Recommended Posts

Just curious how a P2P works.  I play exclusively BO4 and when my dedi is at 25 ping I melt yet when i get bumped to a P2P at 25 ping and same distance my gameplay stinks. Not a techno guy so a basic answer for dummies would be fine.

Basically no servers are used at all and players are connected to each other so you're reliant on your connections to other people which can be unstable rather to a stable server so that explains why it can be worse on P2P. Occasionally depending on the game they may have one player that acts as the host/server and people will connect to that person - this is maybe where you have heard the term 'host advantage' thrown about.
