Treyarch has deployed a new update to Call of Duty Black Ops 4 and provided context to the Black Market Tier Progression and Network Updates. In their latest Reddit post, Treyarch shared about what are currently working on:
“As of today, we have completed the first phase of planned changes to network configuration in targeted locations. We are carefully monitoring overall performance to ensure that these updates are working as expected before completing the next phase of updates. It’s important that we roll out updates in a carefully staged process, as changes to networking infrastructure can potentially produce both positive and negative effects, and we need to monitor every update closely. The stability and performance of the game for the entire community is always our top priority, and we’re continuing to work to sustain the smooth performance of the game’s launch throughout its opening weeks.”
After the update, Reddit User /u/soja92 had run a tests and it appears that the tick rate has been upgraded to 30 hz and the Server Update Rate remains to target 60Hz after today’s update, which is definitely an improvement as Treyarch had annouced that they were going to optimize the experience
