Desire some way to play this game fairly, any options???

9 replies 406 views Edited Mar 12, 2013

Please give us some option to be able to play UC3 in a fair matchup.  I'm even willing to pay a monthly/annual fee, I don't care, just give me some option to play this awesome game in a fair manner. 

 

Or let us join groups based on our internet speed.  I'm constantly getting screwed by people with an internet connection run by a gerbel on a spinning wheel.  I realize you want to include everyone but it seems the largest population of players have the slowest connections.  So let this huge group of people all play each other, it'll be a lagger fest and they can all enjoy trying to be the laggiest lagger.

 

I have no problem waiting longer for a fair match up (players with non gerbel spinning wheel internet) with a limited number of players but knowing each has an connection and the play will be somewhat fair.  The way this game operates now takes a lot fo the fun out of it.

 

If you guys don't so something soon I'm buying a gerbel, spinning wheel, and moving to different country.

In terms of playing "fair" that stretches far deeper than just lag, especially since a person lagging isn't always their fault.

Hello everyone! I’m Scott Lowe, the newest addition to the community team at Naughty Dog. As a longtime fan of the studio, it’s an absolute dream come true to work alongside the developers here and immerse myself in our amazing player community. It’s week two for me, so I’ve got a ton left to learn and get up to speed on. Nonetheless, I plan on posting on the forums as much as possible. You can also hit me up on Twitter, @ScottLowe, whether it’s to talk about games, the studio, or exchange GIFs. Beware, my GIF game is strong. -ND-ScottLowe

Describes half the PS3 userbase in my experience.

 

For PS4 they need a fair usage cap like Microsoft has.

You mean like how Rockstar handles their games (kicks players out to title screen for lagging)?

 

BTW I'd say I have slow Internet. Would dowloading Drake's Bandana for 10 minutes be slow, or...?

No. When the 360 was first released I had a 1MB connection, I had a message while trying to sign up that my connection wasn't good enough.

Wait. 1MB isn't allowed in multiplayer there?

Thank god I didn't get it.

I'd be lucky if I even get 1.5 and maintain it for more than 5 minutes.

Don't know if it's changed by now. but on launch I wasn't allowed, I upgraded 3 days later.

Hey,

 

I feel your pain! But it'd be sad for me cause then I'd never run into people who speak English. I played against you the other day. It was refreshing to hear someone speak English. If we have geographic match making (tssk Black Ops 2) I'll never get to run into people who speak English. Will be a sad day for me.

 

However, I empathize with what you're saying and yes, it'd be good we "really" had "optimal" matchmaking.

 

Cheers!~
