    MS biased towards west coast

    Ok this ismt trolling but a long term xbox fan being disgruntled. I want to see others take on this. Ookay we all know xbox one has a large latency issue. Unless you live in California Oregon or Washington. Now I admit that while I pay for top notched
    internet for gaming im getting schooled in latency. Xbl, atleast for the X1, is routed tothe west coast, your latency test all but tells you this. Now where MS already has issues handling the data going to it, we on the east coast, or god forbid, european
    players, are forced to be handicapped. Where are these 300000 servers? Why do I have to play against people. Closest to the one server? Im paying monthly for xbl. So$120 a year for laggy play being forced on me. I play CoD ghosts right now and im highly
    competitive. It doesnt even give us the option of local online play so we can play with minimal latency. I see these forums about this alot.m I have seen a few of my friends return their x1 for ps4 as well. Im holding on for dear life but microsoft needs
    to stop messing up and make things right.

    Meh, lets face it. Most servers are on the west coast. Not just MS servers. A majority of MMOs have their servers on the west coast... Anyone know why is this so? (without taking into account Silicon Valley).

    Where is the show? East coast America is 5 hours behind and the west coast is 8 hours behind.


    It is in Las Vegas. So it is in the west coast

    If COD Ghosts is what you are basing your experience on then you should look at Infinity Ward as they are not using M$ 300,000 servers. In fact, their servers are a mixture of dedicated and user hosted servers.

    From what I can gather the servers for live are at multiple sites around the world. It would be kind of silly to have this many servers in one location when you can spread out the potential problems in multiple locations. Imagine if there was only one site
    and there was a massive local problem that disrupted the entire service. Multiple sites means that there might be a decrease in performance if one site goes down, but the service is still usable.

    Well ghosts is what I added up to. The latency is higher on x1. Why I dont know. Now when playing ghosts I route to MS, then out to a host for the match, which is generally the closest person to the server in the lobby. Now activision has yet to launch
    these designated servers for ghost as they promise hence why people are still hosting.

    Lol im a network engineer. Trust me I know. The closer the distance to the server the lower the latency, data travels at about the speed of light, hence why the latency is described is milliseconds. All of XBL services are forwarded to redmond Washington.
    So by those fundementals those states should have the best latency. If you are not then you have a network issue either with your home netowrk of from your isp. Sadly I am right 100%

    Good thing Microsoft deploys datacenters and/or colocates in locations around the world, then.
    They're not, though even if that's where the matchmaking took place that's not how the game servers run.
    You aren't. No global organization would build a customer-facing
    network in the manner you describe.

    Do a speed test from your pc and from your xb1. Select the server areas. Time matches. Ask around in lobbies you play in also. 70% of the time they are closer to ms servers out there. As I said this is an xb1 issue alone. My 360, although still not
    comnecting at the speeds it should, connected better. As for data, all data meets up at one point, hence why there are other forums discussing the distance and latency relationship. Even the network rangers and microsoft support can attest to this. The
    number is 18004myxbox.

    Im hoping this is a short term issue related with launch and will rectify itself soon.

    [quote user="CornBeeflt"]all data meets up at one point,[/quote]Different services (stat tracking, matchmaking, games, chat audio) access different servers. The act of playing a game is centered around the game server, be it a dedicated server or a client/server
    setup akin to the 360's. If there's a problem with matchmaking pairing people up on disparate coasts, that's a matchmaking issue not a "Microsoft is Pacific Coast Centric!" problem.
    A call center employee is not going
    to know the intricacies of how Live functions.

    But it does affect latency, which is what im saying. And you basically agreed with me. Now I dont mean to sound like MS planned it. But dont you think data handling shoulda been done better? Or is it still a launch issue kind of thing. As for the"network
    ranger" they are network specialist, these people do not answer the phones but have to be reached through reference. Wait times for them is a ridiculous as their kid friendly titles.

    I live 30 miles from Redmond Wa and CoD Ghosts on the 360 was un-playable for me (lag comp + east coast friends + a bunch of other factors). 15mb down and up. The game was a miserable experience. I've researched it and your location in relation to M$
    has absolutely nothing to do with it LOL.
