Starting last night, 18/03/2021 at 1AM. I have been getting matched with players from US and this morning, players from Asia.
My ping to such hosts exceeds 200.
I am situated in the EU.
Quickplay search range is set to “near” in network settings.
Was not an issue before, starting last night it became an issue.
- Checked my IP and geolocation, all still point to Netherlands.
- Checked the lobby browser under “near” filter, there were groups which had slots for my Kruber. I still got “increased search range” twice in a row and matched with an Asian named host. I was able to manually join the near groups.
In the last 12 hours this has happened around 6-8 times. I am able to reproduce the issue. Only rarely does it automatically host my own game. It prefers to match me to 200+ ping rather than host myself. Other times the matching works as intended. About 60% of the time at the moment.
This has not happened to me before in +500 hours. Normally it would just search “near” and then host my own game.
