They changed what they are measuring OR changed the units they are displaying the results in.
I think I might have mentioned this elsewhere, you can’t have a shorter network ping to an Azure data server than you have to your ISP’s default gateway, yet this is exactly what they are claiming, IF you keep thinking they are showing you “network ping in ms”
I don’t buy it, sorry…
People cried about mismatched team matchmaking so they stopped showing you ranks.
People cried about high ping, so they adjusted their ping calculations to show you a lower number.
Cosmetic attempts to just hide evidence of the problem, nothing more. IMO.
ohhh, I"m not suggesting there were no implements in the game, not at all, I have no comment on that, but rather I’m not buying that the numbers you see now are still displaying the same thing as they used to: ms ping to the Azure server which is hosting your current game…
I don’t know how bad it was upon release but a quick fix patch seems to have resolved disconnection issues. I however have only had the game 1 month and I can’t even stay connected playing private horde. So I can’t comment on fake or actual ping but can comment that the game is for me, completely unplayable. It’s as if I haven’t got the update. I have contacted TC who acknowledged receipt of my issue via email. With a wait time of 28 days to be investigated. I really feel that this will be the end of my gears loyalty. TC strike me as insufficiently capable of delivering the kind of game that made us love it since day one.
Lucky you. My disconnects are very frequent and it has nothing to do with my connection or ISP. I cannot even complete a private horde (super low ping) because a server side disconnect kicks in every time, usually around wave 25 to 35. I struggle to enjoy that. At least if horde lite was still an option I might get to finish a match.
I’ve def seen some pings way lower than I usually see. Saw about 5-6 under 10ms with a guy hitting as low as 1-2ms. That’s insane. If it’s real that’s great; less lag and more consistent gameplay but, like some have said, I kinda don’t buy it either.
Are they working on the lines in your area? Any kind of construction? They were working on mine in my area because of the new high school going in, had absolutely nothing to do with the ISP, and your situation sounds exactly like what I was going through at that time.
@JollyBunny44821 my man, I’ve been playing since launch, and have never had 1 .major issue w/disconnects in private horde. You’ve got an isp issue. Or at least that’s what I would lean to. Unless your on pc. Then you’ve got a configuration issue of some type.
