Coming to DumaOS 3.0: Ping Heatmap
All serious gamers know that server quality and ping makes the difference between a fair game and an unplayable lag-fest. However, most games don’t show where their servers are or how strong your connection is to each one. So how do you figure out which servers to avoid and which ones give you the competitive edge?
With Ping Heatmap, you have full visibility over your ping by testing your connection to each of your favourite game’s servers. Most importantly, the heatmap makes it quick and easy to discover the best server for you.
Ping Heatmap pings your favorite game’s servers, visualising your connection quality to each server on a world map. From there, find out how well supported your area is by reviewing individual servers and nearby server banks. Once you’ve got the overall picture, hold on to your advantage by keeping track of your chosen servers. Schedule pings for your custom server lists to watch for inconsistencies and find the best times to play.
With the knowledge the Ping Heatmap provides, you’ll always be confident that you’re connected to a great server.
Of course, times change: your game of choice might get a new release, or they might just come and go. If that’s the case, don’t sweat it – DumaOS 3.0 has you covered. Regular cloud updates will keep the heatmap library forever fresh, focusing on lag-sensitive titles such as Call of Duty.
Ping Heatmap is just one of many features coming to your router with DumaOS 3.0: stay tuned for our next feature announcement. In the meantime, check out our previous feature announcements and sign up for the DumaOS 3.0 beta here.
