Please add the option to select dedicated servers . I want to play on European servers only.I really doubt we are on dedicated servers, I have so many games where I can't kill a one shot, Americans have great advantage can three shot me across the map
I have a fibre connection so my inter
Net ain't the problem
- Dedicated Servers are Present for all matchmade games
- No matter what your upload and download speeds are network latency exists the further you are sending and receiving packets from.
Having a fiber connection that is, let's say, 1 GB up/down does not make up for the physical distance between you and the dedicated server. It takes time for packets to be sent from client to server and back again which result in network latency. The closer you are to a server - the better your latency will be regardless of which one you connect to and improve your in game experience.
If you are located in Europe and playing on a NA dedicated server - you will have increased network latency due to the distance the data must travel to and from the server. This is a possibility that can happen with how matchmaking rules have been changed since the August and September updates that added dedicated servers and adjusted latency rules. The rule changes was altered to be more relaxed in social matchmaking to allow players who couldn't match due to higher latency in matchmaking. These rules only impact social for the time being however.
But back to the point, you could have 100GB down and 100GB up and the fact of the matter is that network latency no matter what will exist. Up/Down is only the size of the pipe. Think of network latency as the length of the pipe. This is a FACT that is true for any and every networked device that transmits data via the internet. The farther you are physically from a server location will increase your network latency. Not to mention time of day, traffic on the routing path, and many more possible areas of impact on data transfer.
