Matchmaking based on country flag?


#1

HALP, im getting nothing but laggy matches in ranked and battle lounges. It keeps pairing me up with people all over asia and not North America.


#2

lol same here, I had a bunch of Japans, Spains and Mexico… I highly doubt any of these are 5 bar connections… CAPCOM PLS!

Matchmaking has NOTHING to do with the flag you have up. I had the same account that i played on in my visits to Asia and in Egypt.

While in Asia i only got paired against Asians and in Egypt i was getting mostly EU players.


#4

I wonder if anyone can see the flags of the players in the Battle Lounge list consistently?


#5

The matchmaking is based on IP, not flags, as the flags can be chosen by the plyer.


#6

Nope they dont show up here.

I really hope they fix it as in Europe you can rely on the flag to tell what kind of connection they have.


#7

Well, not really.
I was in Australia when the game came out. Now I’m in Europe and I’m stuck with an Australian flag


#8

Yeah, I’m in Europe, too and I hate having to get inside a Lounge just to see the other guy is from Japan or America.


#9

What, matchmaking in SFV? What is this nonsense?

Hmm, well I guess resetting my router fixed the problem.

For some reason on the global map, it was showing that I was located in Japan. I ended up doing a direct connection to my modem therefore resetting my router and it now shows that I’m located in NA.

Kind of weird, I was getting matched up with alot of Jp and chinese flags during ranked and casual matches before I reset my router. Even when I chose 5 bar connection only, it still paired me up with 3 bar connections.

It seriously probably had to do something with proxies and resetting. I guess I was supposed to reset my router after trying out that Ddon game which required a proxy.

Your flag determines nothing. You can select any flag, it’s just flair on your account basically.

its simply broken. I tried everything but still cant find matches in this game. it takes about 20 minutes and then I get matched with someone across the globe. the map shows my correct position though.
