Opt-Out of being Host
on: March 17, 2019, 11:59:50 AM
For those like myself who has pretty bad internet I think have an option to opt out of being selected for being the Host of any given mission or at least make it so that theirs an increased chance you wont be selected.
For the sake of the team.

There is an option for that it's the low bandwidth on settings. If you have that on it won't ever make you host unless everyone else also has that on.

Oh. I always thought that simply allows others with terrible connection to join up with you or something.

It does not depend on the Internet. I have good internet but we play with people from other (remote) regions.
I played games on the same host system in other games and have never experienced problems like in this game.
And yes, its good  "option to opt out of being selected for being the Host"

Hi!

As Tekato said before, if you activate the "Low bandwidth" option in settings, it reduces significantly the chance to be the host.
