Vpn & Ping heatmap

Recommended Posts

Is Ping Heatmap supposed to change when using VPN to connect to different country servers? 

Europe servers are always green regardless where the vpn or geofilter says im at.

 

I use ExpressVPN. 

RX500

Ps5

Warzone

Dumaos 3.0

Hi Jarana, welcome to the forum.

Ping Heatmap does not react to Hybrid-VPN connections, the results will the the same whether you are using a VPN or not.

Is this a feature you'd like to see in a future update?

I guess my question then is, is there any point in having a VPN to play in different country servers? Or geo filter does that without the need of VPN. Does it make any difference?

The Geo-Filter will already take care of that for most games, but some games may matchmake quicker using a VPN connection.

Some games, for example, will attempt lots of local servers before expanding the search far enough to reach the ones in your radius. Using a VPN connection, the game would begin searching from the location of the VPN server.

Your ping is unlikely to be any better when using a VPN, as packets still have to travel the same distance to reach the game server... Usually more, actually. But in some rare scenarios, the VPN's route to the game server might improve things. This is what gaming VPN's sell as their main benefit.
