XR500 Noob, Ping Assist, I'm slightly confused


XR500 Noob, Ping Assist, I'm slightly confused

I just purchased the XR500 on 9/March/2019, please bear with me.



While using "Ping Assist" lets just say I slide it to 30. Does this mean that EVERYONE who enters the game will have a ping of less than 30? Or does this just choose the "Host only" of the game with a ping less than 30?

Hi there - good question. Ping Assist will allow any connection below your 30ms through from outside your Geo-Filter range to connect to you. This means they could be chosen as the host of the game, but equally another host might be chosen.
