To put it simply, a vast majority of UK players, including “Unbrokens” have horrid internet. If I match with Americans? Its less laggy. I’d like to be able to play solo without feeling like 90% of opponents live in McDonalds especially since reports do nothing Edit: I’m a UK player, I’m pointing out that matching Americans gives me better matchmaking with less lag when it should be the other way round.
While i agree, this wouldn’t solve the issue of people intentionally partying up with players who don’t live in the same region, people using a VPN to switch their location from what it really is, or intentionally playing on a different region like some do on PC. The netcode is too forgiving (or even rewarding) for high pings, that also needs to change in addition to adding region lock.
