If you live in EU it seems shot 1+2 dont register. you can always (normally) see shield gets hit, i barely ever see that on shot 1+2 anymore.Cheese Us CH wrote:Although it's an older post it just pretty much sums up my friends and my experience in Halo 5 MP since the last update. We are from Germany and Switzerland. Did 343 change something with the EU servers? Are there even any EU servers???Tetsjin wrote:Apologies if this has been asked earlier, I haven't visited this thread in a long time.
if I search focused on FFA I can't find games, so I assumed the server selection was finally working a year after the game came out. But I can't find games on expanded either.
If I search focused on doubles by myself I always find a game but it searches like expanded. I'll get Americans, I'll get a game straight away like it isn't even trying and I'll get Americans.
Does this happen for anyone else? Can someone explain what's going on? Also what's this I read about new data centers in Europe that aren't being used?
The past few months I've noticed a bigger disparity between how the weapons work for me compared to others, especially regarding scatter/shotgun and plasma caster. As if they've become more connection dependent. Players use the scatter at distances I wouldn't dream of, I have the pistol out and I'm dead from 2 scatter blasts BUT if I have scatter unless I'm pretty much pressing the barrel into their gut I won't get a kill even after 3 or 4 shots. It's made me incredibly apprehensive if they pull a scatter, I boost back and fight at such a far distance and that in turn gets me killed as I'm not in a comfortable position to fire or cover. And the caster, 5 blasts at a one shot does nothing - other way round, I'm on full sheild and I'm dead on 1-2 blasts no where near me.On an unrelated note, why do I get first time players on my team and it matches me up against champs? Doubles seems to be all over the place in terms of matching connection and matching skill. It just seems random.
tl;dr - have connection issues got worse? or have weapons been tweaked to favour better connections ie American servers.
Before the monitor's bounty update we barely faced any lag or latency issues. Now we all feel like we are all playing with a high latency. Especially when beating an opponent player: even if I win the battle, a split-second later i get a hit of the already dead enemy. Also I often feel like I hit the enemy but don't get any hit marker. And don't even try to fight an enemy that is "out of range" - this worked perfectly before but now I barely hit anything... The most frustrating thing: an enemy is low shield and you pump like 3-4 magnum shots into him, he won't fall but manages to kill you. We all are slowly losing our motivation to play Halo 5 - it's just too frustrating...
Has anybody else noticed such problems?
