:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


If you join a ranked game and the countdown is over and the game is launch, then it sometimes takes ages before the game really starts. I see almost all players are ready, but there is almost always just one players who kind of gets stuck. You might even have to wait for more than 1 minute before the game really starts.

Based on the user name it is most like an Asian player who connects the latest. My most common servers are UK or USA (East/West). So the distance of the Asian player is probably the main reason why it happens to Asian players. The same might happen to me if the game decides to put me on an Asian server.

It even takes so long i sometimes might consider Alt+F4-ing, because it feels like i am stuck in the game. That shows that it can really take a long time to connect for the last player.

A year ago or something like that the waiting time was much, much less. Only battle royale games took such while to load.

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Join a 4v4 ranked game.
  2. Get a match
  3. Wait for the count down to end, so the game really starts.
  4. Now you have to wait for a long period.
