People lagging / lag switching

cheating

#1

Can you please automatically kick people with a high latency? Or stop them from matchmaking / move them to a different server? I’d rather wait 30 seconds more in my queue than being paired with people from the deserts of africa.

It still occurs even if you select the “only pair me with people from the EU” box in the settings.

It’s annoying to be playing against 1-2 individuals that stutter and teleport 3x per second.
Impossible to hit them, impossible to predict their path and even more impossible to dodge they attacks. If you play against a super laggy person you’ll hear a lot of “beep beep beep beep beep” because he keeps hitting walls - but he doesnt.

If you have a lagging player in the party you’ll have a lot of fun seeing him placing 1# with the entire group being pissed off.

Please introduce a latency check, please!

What is your ping and FPS in-game usually? You can use the FPS/ping meter in-game (by pressing ~ ) to see if you are having high ping or low fps.

I’m asking because usually, you see others jumping around every round if you have a slower internet connection. (normally you’d see someone with lag flopping around for max one round)

It happens like 1 in 5 games. So 1 in 20 players, and when it does its incredibly unfun for everyone involved.

No, its not about my own connection. When there is a lagging player the entire lobby tells that person to “stop lagging”. It’s never been me.

My ping as of now is 34ms with a constant framerate of 60FPS on high settings.

On the discord one of the admins said the current “leniency” is up to 800ms. Thats too much, please throttle it or increase the queue time for people so they get matched with people from their region.

It’d be nice to check ping before beginning a match, sometimes my router needs restarting but I won’t know until I enter the match and hit the ’ key

than being paired with people from the deserts of africa

so this is how you picture the world. Needless to say, that you are not familiar with the reality of real network infrastructure.

So first of all: We don’t put people “from the desterts of africa” into a lower class match making! That is a thing of the past.

Secondly we can never know, where network latency occours. It depends on how many poeple of an area are using bandwith, physical condition of the cables, physical condition of the server-nodes and regulatory decisions of the people maintaining the infrastructure.

So from this perspective high ping is quite unpredictable and temporary. On the other hand: @spacebar mentioned that he/she would spend more time waiting in match-making, but would you spend money to get into a “higher class” of players with all low ping?

He brings up a fair point; we don’t wanna become 2b2t here.
