ND needs to address this as in give us a real answer.

As real answer not being.

1. Not some thing we can do.

2. We will look into it.

 

Tell us why.

If its financial let us know that. If its technical let us know that.

 

If its financial, I among many other players I know would donate to make this happen.

We could even have fundraising tournaments to get this going.

A couple dollars here or there could help, some thing like the tickets in tournament mode.

 

ND just BE TRANSPARENT.

I definitely support this 1000%!!!

This is what many of us have been calling for, for a long time now. Ping based will ensure those people with slower connections and/or playing in other countries will be more likely to stay out of the lobbies of those who want a less laggy game. And making it optional lets players with lots of friends in foreign countries still play together easily.

LET'S DO THIS ND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And DEATH is right. Be TRANSPARENT on this issue ND. Give us feedback... REAL feedback. Give us reasons why it's not going to happen if you can't do it (gawd I hope you can!).

If ND does this, I may actually start playing this game again.

Eric-ND: This won't fit in the game. We already gave you a legacy matchmaking. 

 

-___- I can actually see this happening.

I think many will.

I now have brought 15 players that have been exclusively Uncharted players to battle field.

Those players have left for a really small amount of reasons.

1 lag

2 lag

3 lag

4 hating power plays.

 

Owning a server over there I can simply region kick anyone who doesn't belong.

Yes I play with players from all over the world that I have met on U2 and U3.

I dont kick players when they are playing with me. Ie. basically what a region toggle would do on U3.

I know you may think this is not polite to kick non region players unless I allow it because I invited non region friends but

not to sound egotistical or ignorant but I pay for that option.

 

The results are amazing in game play, even with dedicated servers.

 

If this were fixed I know 15 players + myself that would be constantly playing U3.

You simply just dont know that.

1 this may infact rocket this multiplayer to the top of the charts.

2. Bring many players back.

3. Fix many things that are simply just broken because of lag.

 

At the rate we are loosing players from the game it is worth a try.

Not doing this could seal the fate of the series.

I agree a 100% I think it should be based on region and then connection. I live in the US but it seems like the biggest laggers are Mexican (my famiy is from Mexico but born in America not trying to be racist but its the truth).

Playing lone wolf, this toggle will do nothing. I would have to turn it off if I want to be able to find players at all. Hardly anyone plays this game in my area. I'll be brutally honest in that there just isn't enough players to implement such a feature. Especially in countries such as mine.

 

If I'm buddying up with my friends I will be facing bad lag anyway. It won't help or benefit me anyway.

 

But on the other hand this would be a better alternative to that bad matchmaking we already have. Levelled based matchmaking sucks. Rather have a connection toggle to switch between the old matchmaking algorithm and the new matchmaking algorithm.
