As soon as we get a chance to test it. We haven't had any chance to play the game before launch.

For now, just try setting your device as a console and see if it works. We'll need to add details of the servers to our database.

We'll be pushing out the fix today.

Has the fix been pushed out?  What exactly was the fix?

Yes the fix has been pushed out. The problem was that we were whitelisting too many servers around the world, meaning that the game knew exactly where you were, even if the geo-filter was supposed to be blocking those servers. Now it should be possible to trick the game into thinking you're anywhere in the world.

Same here man. Would it work best on ping assist or geo location by radius?

Depends if you're aiming for a good ping or to trick it into another location. In theory Ping Assist should produce good results because it will allow any low ping server no matter where it is.

I would still recommend putting a radius around your house though because it will still need to connect to the nearest authentication server before it starts matchmaking, and if it can locate you during this process, the results should be better.

I still get connected immediately to east coast/central servers instead of my home west coast server in CA. Is this normal? I RARELY get into my home server, please help.

Also the game just received a title update today so I'm not sure if the settings provided on the geo are still working correctly, please double check ND team, thank you.

Could you provide a screenshot of the Geo-Filter page please showing when this happens?

 as you can see my geo filter 8s California but still being connected in Texas 

That's showing that you are blocking Texas which would be expected, you will see blocked icons on the map when searching but that indicates it is working. I can't see the rest of the image, could you take a screenshot of the entire Geo-Filter page when you're connected to a game outside the radius?

Do you get connected to the east coast servers even if you put them outside of your radius?

Correct, almost instantly, doesn't even try to connect me on the west coast server.

Do the east coast servers appear with a white circle around them in the Geo-Filter?
