Description of issue:


I believe there is an issue when "Sorting by Ping" on the Xbox One in the Server Browser.


When I sort by ping, if I join a room at the top of the list, my ping is approximately 100ms to US W. If I scroll down and join a server in the US E, my ping is approximately 70ms.


Expected result:


I would expect that the servers with the lowest ping time would be sorted first.


What I think might be happening:


The menu displays ping as a series of bars. For me, US W and US E are assigned 4 bars. If the sort is performed on the number of bars, a sorting algorithm will think the two are equal. However, if the sorting algorithm was run over the actual ping data, I believe a different result would be returned and displayed in the server list.


Please let me know if you need more information.
