Btw that video on battlenonsense was on Shoreline, he should of tested the other maps tbh as like I said it's a proven mess atm (2 Hours ago)
I can already see EA jumping on that. DLC colored rocks! (2 Hours ago)
US for curling? What the fuck... (2 Hours ago)
Connecting too. For all I know I could be hitting up Asian servers. @Grift have u watched Kotton playing it yet? Pretty decent player tbh (3 Hours ago)
Shoreline is the big stinker when it comes to desync. The other maps are pretty much sewed up for performance and network. I think the man problem is that you have no clue on what region you are conn (3 Hours ago)
But on a side note the devs are in plain sight talking constantly about netcode and what they are doing. It's constantly updated and they are probably the most transparent devs I've come across (3 Hours ago)
@Loakum: just left that there then went to bed as I knew he'd throw a hissy fit :D (3 Hours ago)
