Need to stop states like California, Nevada etc from matching up against the Mexico region. The west coast has had terrible play for years. A server will resolve this issue. also now if we still connect to the Mexican region we will at least have a close server to balance things out. California/west coast has the worst play of all the US. Los Angeles has plenty of game servers like COD etc. EA community needs one in the west coast.

    Exactly, people in CA always have connection disadvantage in every game, especially when against Mexicans on the Mexico City server. There must be a server in CA!!!!!!

    I agree. And to make sure you dont match up against mexicans they should also build a huge firewall

    I would be open to that mate.

    I moved to the bay area from the U.K and stopped playing DR simply because it's a waste of my time with the bloody lag.

    the real issue is that it is NOT simply lag, it is pure connection disadvantage. If I lag but my opponent has the same lag, I'm totally fine with that, however, it is not the case in CA. The opponents (mostly Mexicans) are live close to the Mexico City server and have less delay, and more importantly, they know they have connection advantage, so they activate high pressure and exploit the glitch the make CA people's delay even worse.

    Not just a server in California, but multiple servers across the US are needed. Just take a look at the size of the states versus all of Europe, and the amount of servers therein...

    yup. When the mexicans are down, they pause the game, or turn on team press and all goes to ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Its completely unplayable here. I haven't even had decent bad gameplay since last week. I don't understand... I am sick and tired of having to quit every other match because I can't move my players.

    The constant stuttering frame rates is unbearable - lag compensation? I am hardwired on 200mbs... its totally ❤️❤️❤️❤️.

    People in californing are both connecting to Mexico City.

    as far as I can tell, the closet server to me is Portland Oregon which is about 1000 miles away.

    When i played to unlock the bruno and mendy cards, all i played were those from mexico and brazil...

    I live on the east coast of the states, if theres a server closer to me than the mexico city/brazil servers, why havent I, as well as countless others im sure, connected to it 🤔

    So you play rivals... You know rivals matches are full of Mexicans, right...? They just play way more matches than typical US people do, I guess that's why you are east coast but still match them in rivals. About why on Mexican City server, who knows, many EA just love giving Mexicans connection advantage...

    They heard you folks and already designed it.. perhaps for 2021, right by the coast.

    Looks like an upgrade on the antique hamster wheel theyve been using for the last 20 years...

    I'm also in CA and it seems that most games are on the Mexico City server against Mexicans.
