For awhile now, I haven’t been playing the game at all due to the extreme amount of lag and high pings I get. Even with pings in the 140s, it was impossible for me to play.

The fix for this is to change your download region.

I had mine set to US - Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania). I live in Ohio, so I thought it would be fine, but it put me in european matches; I kept getting matched with people in the UK and sometimes Russia. Changing it to US - Columbus or something similarly close (Or not as close to the east coast) should fix it.

Steam: Go to Steam - Settings - Downloads - Change Region.

Console: Follow instructions for whichever console you’re on to change your region.

Windows Store: I don’t know lol
