Different regions result in different default lobbies?

edited May 2014 in Any Topic & Chat
Hi ppl, for the first i thought that Photon Cloud shares the same room list and players. Although it seems that it isn't like that.

So my question is:
Is it possible to matchmake together people from a different region or should I just force them to connect for one master server?


  • Hey,

    cross-region matchmaking is not possible with Photon Cloud. We are using different regions so that players can play with someone from their location, which guarantees low latency / low roundtrip times.

    If we would enable matchmaking between different regions, your players would suffer from higher latency, more disconnects etc. - overall, a worse game experience. So it's in general best to keep them separated between different regions. If you want to match them all together, regardless of their region, they all need to connect to the same region.
