Not having region filter is ruining gow2.
I played 5 set of Annex today. 4 of 5 match, I was playing other people from other countries. It was so laggy, and so darn painful to play the match. Most of my teammate quit within few minutes. When will Epic add region filter? When the next "update" comes out, Epic need to focus on the netcode more than anything else. It getting to the point where it not fun to play anymore. Some of the top tier shooters games are out now. None of them are haveing the issues that GOW2.

The region filter will not help it they have make a donkeys dinner of the multiplayer function in Gears Of War 2.

I live in the UK, Im quite happy playing East Coast North Americans or Western-ish Europeans. Anything else is retarded, thats the range that is acceptable for me anyways.
However, Ive played West Coast North Americans, Australians, Singaporeans(?) and the likes, whilst having a team of UK players.................................... Wonderful.
Gears of War 2 don't need a region filter. it need a sever update that pick the best host in the game and it needs a fix for germany. in germany comes the shots in 1-2 seconds and i need 3 shots to kill anyone. i have one of the best internet connektion in germany butt everytime i have a laggy game. only when i'm the host is the game perfect.
GOW 2 does have a region filter, but it doesn't work the way we want it to!!!!!!!!!!
The region filter kicks in when finding team mates, not when finding a team to play against.
Finding a team to play against is handled by true skills, which is based on wins and loses not location or host quality.
Because those games were built right.

Revamping the netcode can't be that much of a trouble since they added more support to the "server side". I love GOW 2 but not the those kind of problems that been popping up.
LOL @ true skill. This game is rarely ever of skill. Shotgun battles are usually jokes. I can connect more shots on my opponent and I'll usually be the one getting downed first. And what kinda bull**** is this, he who aims longer with the shotgun does more damage. Have you ever done that in a private match? Check it out with a friend one day. Complete bs.

Yeah, True Skills is what ruins the matches, since it focuses on skill balance and not playable connection.

With lag, it is not who fires first on your screen, but who has the best connection to the host so his shots get counted there first.
By the time that you see your opponent fire on your screen, his shot has traveled to host and then to your xbox.
Always remember in lag, if your opponent is heading toward you, then he if is closer to you then he appears on your screen.
If you have lag then the HB or lancer is your best friend. Fight at medium range and go to the shotty only when you have to. Don't run around with your shotty out all of the time and expect to beast with it in a laggy match.
Have to agree
For sure were all just going to have to deal with the lag but yeah why is it that other shooters lag isn't THAT much of an issue like in Gears2??? Good question
