High Latency to dedicated server

This warning appears to only be on FFA
Region lock ? Or something ?
Cause if so bless 343 and their servers

same for europe
always high latency

London UK
100mb Broadband
Wired Connection
300ms Latency on H5

Still trying to figure a way to improve it. Any suggestions I am all ears…

this is why many //most// People in Europe have already quit Halo 5…

Also, there is no way of improving it

Play a different game. I got 19ms on the Gears of War beta, also in the UK. The Halo servers are a joke, it’s appalling. Hopefully the next update will give us a “prefer good connection” option, if not I’m done with this stress inducing crapfest of a game.

Its not just you since the removal of region lock we in the uk are hampered by this.

same here in brazil, dont have more company

I’m in Okinawa, Japan. These issues are new. What changed that I can’t connect for FFA and WarZone?

There was (and still is) and it was brilliant.

They need to change it back for Warzone, TA and TS, playing with Americans when there is a big -Yoink- server in Sydney that’s been working perfectly since launch is absolutely outrageous. Big team and FFA and Fiesta are fine as their populations were so low we couldn’t find games (what prompted the change in the first place).

It’s the game not us, only 343i can improve it. Here’s mine = Scotland UK, 18mb connection, wired, 29ms to 39ms latency on Titanfall European server. Huge difference to Halo 5. Why Halo 5 released without that option is beyond me, the Gears 4 beta had the same feature with almost identical numbers. I won’t play Halo 5 until it’s sorted.

Region lock has been lifted, it automatically connects you to the US servers.

Distance from server = high ping, simple physics. That’s why the local servers at launch have been such a godsend.

Matchmaking preferences are the best solution as some people don’t care about the quality of their matches and just care about search times, that’s fine, they should have that option to play with the large player-base in the US if they want. But there should also be an option for local servers only, especially for ranked and competitive playlists like TS and TA and even Warzone surely has a high enough local population to never have to call upon the distant US playerbase.

It’s ridiculous that they loosened the restrictions on all playlists, it’s like fixing one problem by creating a bigger one.

Now if only the US players would get angry and tired with having to team up with laggy non-US gamers, then 343 might actually do something. They dont listen to non-US gamers. we might as well not be talking about it.

it’s bad enough that I cant play FFA or warzone at all. I just wish it was consistent. one month its all gravy and the next I cant play at all.
what a tease…
