That comment ( referring to a comment from a Blizz MVP but they removed after I posted this - oh it’s back now - this is a joke) is utterly ridiculous. Today I played 4 games, it went Au, then US then AU then US. It’s just freaken random, my ISP isn’t changing that every 30 mins.
It’s also not my ISP’s responsibility to ensure Blizzard match me in playable competitive games. Blizzard can easily check my ping before logging me into servers and not connect me to 200-600ms servers where it just completely ruins the game for everyone involved.
A response from a GM who looked at my traceroute etc… rather than just giving me some silly standard response, which clearly states this is blizzards intention and that even the GM experiences this issue.
well, yes, it could be a problem. connection overseas can be a bit delayed.
This is the problem I’m facing, I keep getting put in US servers with US players randomly
Usually I cannot to a server with AU and NZ players with a 33ms ping. All those games are fine, it’s when I’m put in a server with US players that my ping is consistently large
I think the quickest way to solve the problem is to contact the ISP company asking them if they could change an IP address for you that it may let your network connecting to the server from different nodes.
*cannot = connect
But Blizz can tell my ping. Why would it put me in a server with US players and a massive ping? The ping alone makes it unplayable and ruins it for everyone
I’ve been put in servers with 200-500 ping with both US and spanish players.

i understand. for that part i am afraid that is an intended setting of the game. the match-making system may reach out it’s search when there wasn’t enough players in a region.
You guys have to be able to tell what my ping is and put me either in an approipriate server or not connect me at all
That’s just flat out stupid for a competitive game. Sorry but iti s
You guys handle the server connections

I have the same experience myself as playing in Asia region, it sometimes may let me connect to the KR region which causing me to play with a higer pinged game.
It’s obviously broken
That’s not correct or a solid implementation, this is a blizz isdsue
If we could personally choose servers this wouldn’t be an issue but they reserve that and have poor logic in matchmaking
So you’re basicvally telling me Blizz wont do jack about this?
is there somewhere I can ask for a refund? If they’re not supporting the game I can’t play like this and there’s no point in keeping it

I have to be honest with you, Michael, i am also a gamer myself, i don’t like to play a competitive or any of the ranked game with higher ping, too. I know this can be painful. But at this point, this is an intended setting that players may be assigned to different regions as if there weren’t enough players queuing up for a game in their region.

We do receive feedbacks for this system, all i can do for you is to gather all of these feedback then forward to the developers for their reference.
