    It's going back how it was in Mays update.

    Large regions will get low ping protected servers.

    South Africa​ are getting servers.

    I don't know BF Bulletins source, but he tweeted out the above last night.

    South Africa already got their servers in January.lol

    I play mostly in East Coast servers and am fortunate as I'm blessed with low ping. (I average the twenties in almost all East Coast games.) Overall, the update is great as I'm hit noticeably less when I'm behind cover.

    However, I also know that there are thousands of players who have high pings due to the absence of servers in their particular region. They of course, also need to be heard.

    What Dice needs to do is find a middle ground that benefit both low ping and high ping players. The 150 threshold upcoming next week should hopefully rectify this.

    Why the petty arguments, guys? The particular player base that should be abhorred are the high pingers who play intentionally out of region to abuse the system, not those who are forced to play in far off servers due to lack of server availability. Two different audiences there, guys.

    Because 150 threshold is still not enough for some of the players? and how about the game modes which is completely dead in some regions? Do we not deserve to play what we've paid for because DICE and EA keep thinning the playerbase region by region?

    150 is not enough? Come on. In some online games you would be completely **** with what ping, what are you talking about? You want them to raise it to 200?
    Seriously, if you hit +150ms consistently, you shouldn't even try to play an online FPS.

    You ask too much, giving so little.

    It was more SA servers my mistake.

    Plus it is looking into, not confirmed, but I guess it will pretty much all happen.

    I haven't pointed out that It's going back how it was (pre-Spring patch state), but the 100ms HPR threshold won't return with the May update. Among other things, because It's now already changed for the next update and a hotfix to raise the threshold is coming very, very soon (server-side update).

    I do not agree with DICE's tweaking of the netcode at all. My internet connection is superb unless the microwave is running (kills the signal), so I'm a little ticked off about this. I am not going to be able to record hits just because my connection is better than others... doesn't make sense to me.

    They will undo this, right?

    I was told by someone who plays R6 siege that if you have a 200 ping or higher you either can't enter a server or you're immediately auto kicked after entering. Just saying, if that's true then this Dice update isn't something so crazy and unheard of and hopefully more games will implement these restrictions. Thank you Dice, Great update!

    It's the best it's been as far as I'm concerned. You shouldn't be playing on servers with over 40 ping.

    You're one dumb big feet aren't you?
    Even with the best connection available you can't get 40 ping in servers that are physically so much far away from you

    Oh yeah - and last night before hopping on with friends, I played in ANOTHER EU match (OOR for me), with 120ms ping or higher this time.

    I attempted to get kills with SLRs because someone said it was specifically SLRs and bolt-action rifles that suffered the most from the netcode.

    I, again, have clips recorded of my shots connecting and me getting kills with the Mondragon Optical - even at range. I didn't get any significantly different performance out of it than playing in my region, and my hits were definitely registering.

    15-40ms ping and everything felt great when I played. Play in your own region. I call bs on your supposed under 100ms ping though. Only lies to try and reverse this wonderful patch so you can exploit the lag compensation with your region jumping pals jose and chan.

    There
    You've never seen anyone complain before?

    Yeah, no Battlefield player has ever moaned about OOR players ever.

    The high pingers are disappearing fast.

    I'm in SEA and they didn't put Singapore / Indian servers where we could get ping much lower than 100 ms. Is it our fault that DICE decided to punish OOR players. We can't even play in our own region now.

    Look, out of region playing is not good for the people who play in region. Suck it up, or find a local platoon to join.

    There're no local servers here in SEA. How are we supposed to "suck it up" then?
