Dying behind corners alot atm..
EU servers, Germany, Amsterdam & London.

The game is smooth, but seems like everything is 0.5s behind in terms of combat, not great.

I was playing on customs yesterday with a friend, he said he is dead... a second later I have heard the shots...

ID: grqi4mb

yup 🙁 and just makes these individuals who prefer hyper-aggressive play all the better can't hold an angle/corner at all anymore without being totally smoked by someone who might not even know your there

ID: grv6ckw

Just caught a guy in full sprint and he was able to stop pull up his gun and one tap me instantly

ID: gruj4tz

one day its smooth... the next day i die around corners

Desync has been getting progressively worse over the last few weeks, this past week especially. Scavs drop dead sometimes a full second after you tap them in the head. I've been rounding corners and spraying down someone standing totally still, only to die and be told I fired no shots. Frequently dying then hearing the gunshot afterwards. It seems like people are able to lay in a bush, stand up and shoot me, before I can actually see them stand up on my screen.

Then there's the disconnects. At least once every 2-3 raids, I'll be disconnected either while the game is loading or shortly into the game. Then the game will sometimes give me difficulty reconnecting, about half the time I'll end up dying while trying to get back in.

Then there's the menus and inventory screens. They constantly freeze up, and only seem to be fixed by restarting the game. I'll frequently try to collect insurance or money from the flea, or put something up for sale on the flea, or try to sell some junk to a dealer, and it just sits there doing nothing. It won't let me click out of the screen when these things happen, and I have to restart. Often I'll try to move something in my inventory from one spot to another, only to have it blink in both spots and never actually move, again, requiring me to restart the game to get anything to happen. In this same area, closing the inventory screen while in raid will frequently freeze for up to 3 seconds.

Right now, the game is borderline unplayable. I'm still playing it regularly but I'm not enjoying it anymore. I started tracking, and on a bad day, I'll die 10+ times in a row, without extracting a single time, because I keep dying due to one of these issues above. It's extremely frustrating.

Seems like I picked a good week to get back in...

This is the exact issue I stopped playing for, last year.

ID: grpmbuc

Been debating hopping back into the game after stopping for the same reason. Sad to see the problems only gotten worse with time evidently.

Same here friend, did not test a lot on other maps, but Customs has been broken guaranteed 100% since Sunday morning EU time. I have been dying to scavs / Unity engine failure / desync along with the usual bullshittery on top, leading to almost 0% survival rate since Sunday over 20 or so raids. And I was on my way to 53% survival rate before Sunday, level 41 btw. Now I'm about to cross 49 soon lol. So, yeah , something happened for sure.

Eu servers tad bit laggy.

5 : Anonymous2021/03/20 04:00 ID: grk40jx

Trouble getting into games as scav (get kicked out while the raid is loading) and occasional "server connection lost" during pmc runs forcing me to rejoin just to die to a pmc/scav shooting my face as I'm rejoining.

Real fun, quality servers. Canada/US east coast.

ID: grozw2z

My experience exactly, east coast.

Same, east coast servers

Anyone else getting hs when they are behind cover during a fight. The desync is really bad right now.

ID: grqd9f2

The thing is the game code is broken piece of shit. If I've client says bullet hit head, server just takes it granted. And you are dead if you are behind the cover it behind the shooter or wherever. What's worse - they would need to rewrite this whole shit. Instead they talk about "servers upgrade", "your isp problems" and "new Unity version" like Unity had anything to their shitty code.

ID: grnlr11

I sure am. It's so bad right now.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/20 09:48 ID: grkqevr

Is anyone else getting desyncs and stutters every raid they get into?

I am playing on the EU servers and it seems that no matter the hour the game feels like shit.

9 : Anonymous2021/03/21 01:34 ID: grnm6hc

Its GARBAGE now, join a raid as a scav with 10 minutes left in customs, rush dorms because my extration was on old road gate, get inside the dorms and chill in a room for a bit, spot a guy outside shot him twice and he shot me back 3 times, i die after leave the room like 6 seconds later after the fight.

BSG wtf is that? this makes me so mad, i bought the EOD and cant even play the game anymore, 6/7 seconds of desync? Remove this 2 last patchs your guys put in, rollback because this changes are GARBAGE and make it like 10x worst than before.

btw, Miami server.

try posting this on the forums, you will get a condescending response from someone that isn't even a dev so the devs don't have to come in to make excuses.

their egos are too big for your criticisms to ever get through their thick skulls.

ID: grqpr68

That's why you never pay for games that much that are 6 years in development and have almost 0 progress in major things like netcode or anything else. Sure graphics got better and some new mechanics has been added but sounds are broken as they where before, netcode is just trash but no ... peoples will again give up and Nikita will come here to sing how it's not his problem, how we are actually bad community. Well everybody else would just uninstall at this point...

ID: grqyhs3

Its been 3 years i bought this game and was not so bad in the start instead everything at least you can play it for a bit without they release a new patch and break everything like they always do, i do not understand how they release a bad update and dont roll it back after figure out the game is unplayable.

I don't think the community is very bad but people are really frustated to pay a lot of money in a game and it don't even works, this reddit just express how people are frustrated, tarkov is already a game where we deal with a lot of frustrations by our own mistakes so i think we dont need more to worry like desync, broken ironsights, armor bugs, sound bugs, random disconnects and bad servers.

The ideia of a game like tarkov it is really cool but they messed up choosing bad hosts to host the game like the godaddy crap servers.

Every wipe is the same thing, game gets bad and people are forced to stop play it until the next wipe coming, there is a lot of issues.

NA west just has a shit ton of hackers which is the main issue with it IMO

8 hit count with M61, 222 damage to body, what is going on with the servers/game right now?

Copying and pasting my post title since it got deleted. Servers have been hot ass.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/20 02:56 ID: grjy0mm

Server performance seems more or less the same for me; which is to say pretty decent, with my fair share of folk abusing peeking and dsync.

Average matching/loading times have dropped significantly, I’d say from 5 minutes to 3

Edit: NA East fwiw

Constant backend errors when moving items in stash. Every 3rd or 4th item I try to move keeps flashing, the error message appears, then kicks me to the main menu. Will reboot and try getting into a raid.

Getting super regular disconnects and descync

2021-03-21 20:24:53.230 +00:00||Error|Default|Log: calling UNET::NetLibraryManager::Disconnect this is likely comming from script

2021-03-21 20:24:53.230 +00:00||Error|Default|Log: calling UNET::VirtualUserHost::Disconnect because of reason NetErrors::kWrongConnection

In trace log when disconnected from the game. Super annoying to lose kits that way.

If you can't fix the game just sell the idea to a better studio. Peeker's advantage in this game is ridiculous. Dying so far and so late after taking cover simply doesn't exist in any other contemporary FPS game atm. Also I don't get why we accept this. PUBG has bigger maps, more players, bullet drop, armor etc. and almost perfect hit reg. EFT just has shitty servers, and few people care to admit. I simply cannot believe some simple extra calculations (ammo type, limbs, ricochet chance etc.) cause such a big problem and desync. It doesn't make any sense so I don't accept it as an excuse.

Everybody just keeps playing because of the gun porn and the grindy addictive nature of the game, but almost everybody agrees that fighting sucks and it's never reliable. So the game fails to deliver at it's fundamental core and purpose.Gave up this wipe too because of a ridiculous amount of BS deaths and frustration from connectivity issues. I don't believe anything will change for the better tbh.

Bad netcode has been a discussion since i started playing in end of 2017.This games netcode will likely never be fixed unfortunately, they discussed getting third party devs to help with netcode - nothing has changed. They release a couple minor patches relating to netcode (2019 ish) but it's the same shit.

The games code is probably just a mess to work with (evidence of this everywhere, all their menus are obviously rewritten code instead of reusing existing code). If you have been following this game for a while you would know this is nothing new.

Just wiped a 4 man, no problem on customs....

Then desync hit. 2 ENTIRE mags of 855a1 into a scav. He teleports 10 feet, then manages to one tap me in the head with PS while reloading the third mag -_-

Shooting a Full 30 round AK74M Mag with BT Ammo into a player. My Mag is empty and while i reload and the player is jumping on the roof next to me he just dies after 2 seconds. Also Experiencing poor netcode when the game starts: Shooting 20 Rounds of Ak74 BT Ammo into an player with no armor or helmet and i just die instantly after 2 sconds when he turned to me. Experienced on following Servers: Germany, Poland, Czech, France, Netherlands

Whenever therapist has run out of stock (croutons or sugar) and I click on the item, it completely freezes my game. Can't close the game, need to sign out & back in to Windows.

The memory leak issues are getting worse

My frames used to be beautiful on Customs and they are obviously dropping into the toilet if I try to stay in raid more than 15 minutes

26 : Anonymous2021/03/24 15:24 ID: gs23bzl

Literally impossible, worst developers on fucking earth.

27 : Anonymous2021/03/20 02:22 ID: grjulsm

So glad they "upgraded" their servers. Constant packet loss and highly fluctuating ping. East coast us. How many more years do they need to fix it? What a joke.

Server performance is god awful Desync is peaking on NA

29 : Anonymous2021/03/20 23:30 ID: grn8kau

Is there still that pesky 1 second delay that makes running and gunning the optimal strategy?

ID: grozent

I always die to this, new to Tarkov, used to hold angles with every game I played, but it's not possible to do here.

Opponent had no idea where I was yet, I get running killed basically always when I hold angle.

I just hit someone 8 times with m61 and did only 80 dmg and no armor damage?

Customs on US West is currently unplayable. desync is common and can last 2-3 seconds. more cheaters than ever before

32 : Anonymous2021/03/21 07:50 ID: groit0a

Region lock the game. Can't play on NA east cause of euros abusing lag. Can't play on NA west cause of hackers from across the water. Even in central servers peeker's advantage is a full second. We don't need new guns and maps as much as we need stable servers and decent encode. Oh and fix the fucking sound god damn.

Jesus Christ, what happened in the last 2 hours?
Silenced gun fired inside a building sounded like it's unsilenced and fired outsite (my gun, not sure how it sounded to others).
Grenades exploding without sound.
Teammate isn't able to hear my footsteps, not sure if other players can hear them (running on metal).
