There is a known issue with PS4 players being assigned the wrong data center [Link]

/u/Its_epi /u/mattshotcha do you know when we will get rid of nat type Dependancy for consoles? You guys removed the p2p aspects for PC in the mid season reinforcements if I'm not mistaken and everything went fine I can't see a reason to hold it back from consoles after a month.
Keeps putting me on Data Center SBR...PS4 here
My framerates have dropped to an unplayable level since the patch today. I was averaging 70fps+ easily, but now am lucky to average 20fps.
What the hell did Ubisoft do this time?
Can we get a bug list going? I have a few I'd like to add.
it is! i just played it in ranked
When playing Tower, you can get spawn peeked by defenders sitting on window sills if you rappel down the South side. Always rappel down North side.
A lot of fps drop on every map, that's weird the fps were at 60 before the update now it drops a lot in low 40
Any words on why the resolution scale slider hasn't been implemented yet?
An official "we had too many problems with it" would suffice.
If you’re trying to play and are experiencing terrible ping, check this out. You can easily fix it by following these steps. Everyone is connecting to Southern Brazil (SBR).
Playerbase is far bigger on console I believe.
Same. What is going on?
Can confirm! Felt like team deathmatch because both teams were so lost.
If they removed theme park, Ranked would be even more repetitive then it already is
I don't love it either, I just wish they would add some of the old maps back into the rotation, a man can only play border and chalet so many times.
Not a huge fan personally
It is. I don’t have any links but I remeber seeing a post. Ps4 has the largest player base of them all
Yeah its a bug they're working on it
No info from ubi on this, so assumed a hard no.
What do the new ranked charms look like?
