Re: NHL 21 Input lag in HUT

★ Guide

Hi, I have a problem with the delay of the players' reaction, it is not visible, but it makes the game unplayable, usually the game starts well, but after some time the delay starts .. otherwise I play on cable, I have VDSL connection via cable, and according to several UO trace tests all good and ping stable 22ms, and despite that they simply feel the delay of the players .. I have already tried all the options, but nothing helped .. I'm from the Czech Republic, so if someone had a similar problem and could advise me what else to try? Thank you..

Hey, all.

I know this doesn't impact everyone in this thread but wanted to throw it in here as an update.

 

 

We’ve officially launched a new North American South-Central server in NHL 21 which will improve our overall coverage and connection for players in that region.

So I tried another console including the driver, and the result is still the same, the player delays are unbelievable and it's pinging 24ms and the connection is still stable tested on UOtrace .. here's a sample ..

I'm not seeing any lag in that clip. Can you post a screenshot of your UO Trace results?

What about activating servers in Toronto, Ontario a big city like that with hundreds of players playing with high pings because of overloaded servers .. it’s time that Toronto gets one.

I'm sorry you don't see it, because the difference between the controller and the player's reaction is simply not visible, but in this video there is an example of how the game behaves when players have delayed reactions and it's Gretzky who is not marked and stands close to the puck and he just won't marry him !!! There are just a lot of such mistakes that don't happen offline at all .. and this is the test result right in this match..

In your video, Gretzky backs off the puck because you're controlling Stone. Then, you switch to Gretzky. At that point, the opposing player was able to pick up the puck due Gretzky and Stone being too far away to reach it.

Well, look again, Gretzky will make a small move and then stop before he marks it .. and this is a demonstration of the delay of the players' reactions, I don't know how else to show you what's going on in the game .. every time the game starts to run very cool but during the game there will be a delay of the players, so explain to him why this is happening, the connection is OK and there is no problem ..

I saw that. That's why I said Gretzky backs off. It's because the AI thinks Stone is going to pick it up.

I just don't think so, there are a lot of such situations in rivals .. and it's just caused by the delay of the players' reactions, because in SB never a similar situation has ever happened to me, and I have played far more matches there ..
