BF3 Slow Multiplayer (Help)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Before you say it, I tried posting this 3 or 4 times in the official BF3 thread and I get ignored.

I have had terrible map loading speeds for multiplayer. When a new round starts, I am loading >60 seconds slower than everyone in my clan.

Their single mechanical drive is loading faster than my RAID 0 setup that is 230Mb/s Read/Write. I don't see how this is possible because that over twice what they have.

Is there anything that would cause this that I can fix? I just did a fresh OS install last night and did all the updates. Also defraged.

Its pretty slow on my SSD also, I dont think the problem is on your end. The maps seem to load much slower than in the beta. Might be that the servers have been getting hammered?

No matter what, I load so slow. In the beta I was one of the first to be loaded into the game. Now I dont even load fast enough to see the timer before you can spawn. Some people have 1-2 kills by the time I get in a game.

I need this fixed ASAP. Does anyone know any things that could be the problem?

Alright guys, you are free to create threads if you are facing any technical issues in regards to BF3. However, threads that are based on your feedback/comments etc... for the game will be deleted.

Cheers

You are good smile.gif.

I was getting uber slow loading too, but When I redownloaded the game I set it to install on my SSD.

I know this internet is total crap but there is nothing I can do. My ISP has a monopoly in this town so theres no choice who you get it from.

But it didnt hold me back from loading into games as one of the first 5 people on the beta. On other games such as BC2 and CoD, I usually load faster than most people. So I dont see it as being the major problem.

Loads fine on my single WD Black..

By the time I get in, there is about 30 seconds until the round starts.

Oh wow, that is slow speeds. We even get faster speeds here in Australia, and we've been running on copper wire since the dawn of time. I get about 8MBps down and 0.8MBps up, about the best you can get here.

As for your problem, try some different servers with high ping and see if you can connect to them faster (which would be ironic), as other people have said, it could just be the sheer amount of players at the moment causing the slow server speeds. The speeds of your drives should not be a problem, but you could run a HDD benchmark test if you want to check their speeds.
