Matchmaking Question

I need an explanation. How in the world does matchmaking work in Gears 5? Why does it put me, a US player, in lobbies on the other side of the planet?

It even does it in Quick Play. Queue times for QP sometimes take less than 60 sec Yet, when I load into a match a have a ping of 130+. Makes 0 sense.


Have you tried Lower Ping option in Matchmaking?

There is not much about this game that makes sense, including decisions made in developing this game as well as ongoing shenanigans.

On point though, I’d agree with Dreamz’s suggestion as it’s really your only option.
