I have asked a couples on different threads on what feature is for and how its used in a practical. What I know so far you select a ping target, comes up with results of servers etc. So what next? How can I use the information?

For instance I pinged target Call of Duty Warzone from the drop down list, came up with the server details. Does this mean I can add this server to my Allowed/Denied list? Can anyone please tell me how this works :)

Good question, so as you know game servers can fluctuate during the day meaning at different times you could have a worse experience. By using the feature you can find out whether your favorite server for example has a good ping at that time so you know whether to try to force it or force a different server using the Geo-Filter. Basically I would recommend using it in conjunction with the Geo-Filter to find the best servers for you - can also help if there are any mislocated servers so then you know where on the Geo-Filter to create your polygon or put your radius etc.

Thanks for clearing that out, but it's going to be a bit challenging to find a specific server of my choice to force it. Any advice on this?

What I would do is this ping the game you want to play. In the right hand menu where it gives you the pings for all the servers, click on the one with the lowest ping. That should show you on the map where it is located. Zoom in so you know exactly where it is, then replicate that on the Geo-Filter - probably easiest with Polygon.

question also with ping heat map even though it says call of duty warzone can i use this for just regular matches or is it only for playing warzone in multiplayer? an how do you force it on geofilter do you make up your own list in heatmap an add the ip adress to use it? cause i have my radius or polygon around the server but it doesn't show up.

Hi Matthew - you can use it as the server locations are highly similar in CoD. The idea is to show you where a game’s server banks are located, and how good your connection is to each one. 

Currently, you should use the heatmap to find the best server locations for your game, then draw those as geo fences (using polygon mode) on the Geo-Filter. We’re looking into streamlining this so the two are tied together.

Hi NetDuma , what would be nice is to see the ping heatmap incorporated in our Geo-filter on the same page. It will make thing so much easier to get exact locations with the Polygon. Just a thought.

You've got a pretty low ping for one of those servers so I would force that one on the Geo-Filter. If you weren't using QoS at the time and devices were being used then they can be a bit lower but that's a direct ping to the servers available.

Hey, welcome to the forum!

Flush the cloud in the Ping Heatmap options, then it should work.
