Recent Lag + Inconsistencies + Sponging - Is It The Servers or Players? - TC Please Read!

Please don’t be ridiculous. For the old foruns, I’d agree, but the new forums are the best place for discussion and support.

Why even have these forums if they’re only going to use Twitter? They even said they are going to update here as much as Twitter now

My experience is that my ping had stayed the same for all servers - it’s just the game doesn’t want to work anymore …


(III EnVii III) #105

I can say that is not the case for my many European friends.

I play with people from Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France and Italy.

Their pings are the same as before.

Plus there are two EU servers - Ireland and Amsterdam.

It’s rare to go on the Ireland one and the game almost always chooses Amsterdam…

I think you must be experiencing something different then as my pings / others haven’t changed themselves but the game itself is a lot more inconsistent.

If you are using Speedtest - I would suggest the Namesco Server for London - I find it quite reliable :+1:

Starting to wonder if English is really your native language. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: (was a joke btw)

Point being, ping or latency is an echo, so unless you physically move the servers,
something else is amiss.

Also, another edit.
My US ping has never changed. You understand my issue?


(III EnVii III) #109

Yeah, so it has to be on your end if you noticed double ping …


(III EnVii III) #111

I appreciate that what I’m saying is I have many people on my friends list from outside the UK that this isn’t true for.

Plus - you would end up having a ping double than that of the other EU server - are you telling me that’s the case?

Just finished match with 3-digits pings for all. Had 2 quitters.
I mean, how it’s even possible 10 players none to be local?
It’s all up to matchmaking. That thing doesn’t work as intended.

It put me on a server with 220ms ping once,

I swear I couldn’t do anything.

Honestly have no idea how high ping warriors do anything on such a ping …


(III EnVii III) #116

What I mean is on the Matchmaking Menu where is shows pings - your North EU ping is showing as double your West EU ping?

And I have never seen anyone ping 5ms to the server in game - I have done it occasionally but the game syncs pings whether it’s lag comp or whatever and will up it to at least 16ms or so …


(Duvellicious) #118

I had the same problem as u. Its because of your good internet connection.
Verry frustrating!
When i here this im happy i cant play it anymore :smile:


(III EnVii III) #119

Can you post a picture? I’m so intrigued…


(Duvellicious) #120

Sad man, i now exacly how frustrating that is for u.
U pay big money for that internet connection, loving that game.
Get screwed over and over for doing a good work as a server.
They gonna lose evry devoted gow player whith a good internet connection if it stays like this.


(III EnVii III) #121

Yeah, this game is backwards and helps out high ping players!

Maybe TC will learn from 4 and allow Gears 5 to be better in all aspects of MP. I’m sure there’s a good chance of a beta happening too!!

Or a Gears 2: UE would also allow them to try new things :+1:


(chaaze) #122

No further comments.
This is on Ranked from the UK.


(III EnVii III) #123

That’s cray cray.

TC should have acted a long time ago…


(Royce Batty) #124

Been off this game for three weeks. Never been happier.
Will post screenshot when I can. At work.
47 ms is the lowest i’ve had in months. When evening comes, it goes up. US stable as is.

Screenshots from work PC, WiFi, Fiber, 40/40


(III EnVii III) #125

Will be good to see in game from the menu :+1:

Ping on Speedtest can rely on the server chosen too …


(chaaze) #126

Lol man, Wifi, Fiber just exclude each other.
Get a LAN cable. Disable wifi, report back…


(III EnVii III) #127

Same, Ethernet all the way to my One X, PS4 Pro and PC :+1:

The wire from outside to my router is like 0.75m and then from my router to Xbox is only 0.5m :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::v:
