To the esteemed developers and the team behind Sod2,
I've been a staunch supporter and dedicated player of this game series ever since the release of the very first title. My enthusiasm only grew with the sequel, especially when the cooperative gameplay was announced during its development. Now, as we all eagerly anticipate the release of the third installment, I felt it pertinent to share some of my wishes and concerns.
The essence of my wishlist for sod3 revolves around the multiplayer system. I understand that the architecture of the game functions through an intermediary server, and while there are debates about its functionality, the reality for players in my country has been a consistent lag – approximately a two-second delay for each action. This has been in stark contrast to other games, which, using a purportedly similar peer-to-peer system, run seamlessly over the same network without such hiccups. This discrepancy makes it clear that the intermediary server is the root of the lag issues for distant players.
For years, my gaming group and I have tried every possible solution to enjoy a smooth cooperative experience on Sod2. We've even consulted network and telecommunication specialists, along with experts familiar with the Unreal Engine, to bypass the middle server, fail ><. With the second game, we've come to terms with playing individually. But for the next one, I truly hope for a more inclusive and global-friendly multiplayer experience.
Please do not overlook the fans who are distant from the data centers. We are as passionate and eager as any other group of players, and we hope that our gameplay experience can be on par with those living closer to the servers.
Thank you for considering our wish !
