Heatmap - Where are the UK servers for COD ? and why so many failures

Recommended Posts

We need to update some of our Ping Heatmap data, I've requested an update already this morning so hopefully we can get that done today! Your router will automatically pull the latest cloud update so there shouldn't be any action required by you guys.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, CoD servers specifically seem to change a lot so they require frequent updates.

Hi Guys.

I have a few questions that I think a few people need some light shed on.

My first image is the current Ping Heatmap for Europe for Warzone. As I have mentioned before, there are never any servers located in the UK. That was explained by saying that the French server was actually in the UK. If that is the case, will we ever see this located correctly? If not, what is the point of having a Geofilter?, because I run a tight polygon on the south coast of England to isolate a specific bunch of servers that I found when I got the R2.  

The second and third image shows a Peer icon on the south coast, which is ALL I connect to at the moment. I might only be speaking for myself here, but If we are going to have specific icons for peers and servers, then I would really like them to be accurate. 

These little things would make the whole experience of using the DumaOS so much more user friendly. It just helps the user have that confidence that their settings are doing what is expected of them...

Yes they will be, we're working on backend tools at the moment to help us make it more accurate and more quickly so I suspect it won't be as much of a problem in the future. Possible that UK one could also be one of the servers that failed to ping

I believe the dedicated server for COD was moved from UK to France/Netherlands a few years back. We only get P2P now

I doubt that's the case, they wouldn't go from servers to P2P when the difference in connection quality could be substantial. I suspect they're just appearing as misclassifed on the Geo-Filter Map

The server in the US is ec2-44-225-13-2.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com  (this disappeared when I left party chat). Maybe that's a feature that I didn't see when I had the XR300.
Strange that PS5 party chat would be using and AWS US-West2 Availability Zone when everyone in the chat was based in the UK.  

There is a feature to use a server for chat party. can be found in voice chat settings maybe this is why you get a server showing.

So is it actually possible to get a 100% working/accurate Geo-filter option on the router, given that there are so many mis located servers the whole time. Because theoretically all we can really rely on is the Ping Assist. 

I don't want to connect to random Peers. I want to join Dedicated servers only. And from what I see recently, all I am connecting to is peers.

Yes it is, we're creating backend tools to make it more accurate and update quicker. They won't be peers, they will be servers misclassified as peers, it will not affect your connection, it is purely aesthetic
