I'm in Canada (WEST). I have internet via cable. The modem that I received from my ISP is a cisco modem. I've also tried it with a router. No luck. It is pretty new, and it isn't on the list that you provided. Other games are all fine though. It's only halo that has issues. The likely culprit is either the dedicated server or the netcod, and they're both on 343's end.Zz Cooljoe Zz wrote:Where are you located? Do you have cable/DSL/satellite internet? How old and what brand and model number is your modem, I know some models made a little bit ago that had intel puma chipsets had issues with lag spikes, check out this list to see if yours is on it. https://approvedmodemlist.com/intel-puma-6-modem-list-chipset-defects/Xp3rious wrote:I'm hardwired directly into the cable modem. No router either. I have a switch, but the xbox connection does not go through that.Zz Cooljoe Zz wrote:Totally agree, but are you on Ethernet or WiFi? Cheap routers can also cause high ping times along with ISP that don't know what they're doing. If you have a router/modem combo try getting separate modem and router. ping times aren't that high for me but the game still feels off.Xp3rious wrote:#2 should be top priority. The connection is horrendous in this game. The bullets don't register half the time. What kind of FPS is this where you have to shoot away from the body to land a bullet? I wonder who came up with this concept.zvenom91 wrote:1 Please take the 5 min bans off of quitting or getting disconnected every single time as I got disconnected from the server in matchmaking yesterday mind you only once but I still had to wait 5 mins to play again
2 Fix the latency in Halo 3 as it's sometimes is unfair on how you can shoot the enemy and then melee and the enemy somehow gets the kill after 1 melee without even shooting first causing utter frustration
3 Add in Join in Progress to Big Team Matches in Social please!! Just like on 360 for Halo 4 where you can join in or with a friend a couple mins in as it would make it so much more enjoyable to not be unbalanced in 8v8, while at it let there be a option to start a Big Team match with 14, 12 or even 10 players and find other players a min or so into the game so you can play more frequently.
4 Let me boot annoying players who betray me over and over again as it seems a troll can betray me as much as they want and I never get a boot option
5 Decrease Halo 3 weighting as anytime I search with Halo 3 as a option I will get Halo 3 about 80 or 90% of the time, I'm not sure if trolls are purposely only selecting Halo 3 as a option to play but the whole choose what you want to play is not any different than before that part got added. If anything force a player to choose 2 or more games to play online so people like me selecting Halo CE, 2, 2C, 3 and 4 can get something different than only Halo 3 please
6 Increase Halo 4 weighting, I'm not sure if people who play Halo MCC have some kind of gripe against Halo 4 but I would surely play the 360 version of Halo 4 less if I had a chance of ever getting to play a Halo 4 Big Team or even a Halo 4 Team Slayer match which seems rare to happen.
7 Continuing on Halo 4 Weighting can you adjust it to where you get stock maps like Vortex alongside DLC maps like Shatter and not solely DLC Maps? can I have a option to choose my favorite maps per game so I can have a say on which maps I actually do like to play on?
8 Put me on the East Coast servers! I log in today to find myself playing on West Coast 2 I think it was and I'm in South Carolina from my findings I should be on the East Coast 2 or even better yet the South Servers which also baffles me as to how the East Coast 2 servers had better PING than the South Servers did I'm not sure if it's the players connecting or if it's me as my own distance from the server
9 Better yet can we combine a few servers because it seems pretty weird to have what 10 or 15 servers setup world wide and like 5 in America, yes I know 343 wants to make things fair for everyone but that seems a fair bit overkill when Halo 3, Reach, Halo 4 on 360 when it was populated never needed servers like this
10 I'll stop complaining but something just feels off on games that aren't played on Halo 4 engine as that feels the smoothest and going to Halo 3 or CE something just feels off-putting, latency could have something to do with it or even the 30FPS to 60FPS translation but Halo 4 feels almost perfect when PING is low but the other games feel to stutter and feel like Emulation on PC where you play a game and you notice something is pretty different and not to original specs
It takes players 1-2 bullets to kill me from the back (across the map in Narrows for example) when I'm 1 shot. But it will take me 4 or 5 (if I'm lucky) because I'm in Canada (WEST). It must suck for EU/ANZ players. Here are my ping times for some of the games:
Please pay attention to the last image. Since when is Japan closer to Canada than East US? Also, let us choose the servers. We should be able to choose what servers we want to play on (west, east etc...). The unfair advantage some players get (and myself if its west server sometimes) is ridiculous. Every game is inconsistent. Your skill means nothing. It's the server that decides it.
Thanks for your help.
