Xbox One Vs Ps4

I feel like it may have been said already, but I'll say it again, andromeda really needs to add a button to the control to change your pathfinder profile without having to go to the menu. Going to the menu really removes you from the flow of the combat. 

 

This morning I fired the game up and realized I'd put way too much into biotics. So I respec'd my Ryder in the Tempest and spread the points around to make sure I had at least 2-3 points in 3 skills for combat, biotics and tech. Now when I switch my profiles, I'm getting the most out the skills being used.

Has any PS4 players noticed any online lag since the 4.5 update?

 

Also, was curious if anyone who has an Xbox and a PS4 could do a quick ping test. Goto cloudping.info and let me know what you get. If possible.can you do a screenshot of it and post it here. 

 

I just tested both my Xbox One and PS4 for you, sorry no screen shots.  My current internet connection is through TWC and my plan is 300 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up.  I just went to speedtest.net and ran a test on my PC and got 347.74 Mbps down, 23.7 Mbps up and a ping of 30 ms.   I did a ping test with cloudping.info on my PC and got 39 ms.  

 

I use a powerline adapter to get internet to my bonus room where both my PS4 and XB1 are located.  I only have one ethernet cable attached to the adapter, so I use the same connection and switch back and forth from each console.  With that said, my XB1 gets the better download and upload speeds, and the difference is baffling to me.  Here are the results.

 

XB1 - wired, connection test within network settings was 84.3 Mbps down/22.96 Mbps up and through their browser using cloudping.com I got a ping of 61 ms to US East.

 

PS4 - wired, connection test within network settings was 37.7 Mbps down/1.4 Mbps up and through their browser using cloudping.com I got a ping of 152 ms to US East.

 

My PS4 was purchased at launch in 2013 and the Xbox One in 2014, so both the original models.

Ok, so using the cloudping, you got in the 50s for Xbox, and 150 for PS4. This definitely supports the latest update causing havoc.

Yeah I respecced out of pure biotics too. Biotics are fun, but are negated completely by armor and shields(well some of the abilities as you level them up get better vs. shields) Tech is actually really good this time, as Energy Drain and Incinerate wreck shields and armor, respectively. My current loadout is Energy Drain to deal with shields(I also specced it so it acts as both a primer AND detonator), Incinerate to deal with Armor, and Lance as my primary detonator/nuker. I have no points put into Combat so my gun damage isn't great, but I really only use it to pick off stragglers.

 

I do kinda miss Pull/Throw, but again since it doesn't work on shielded or armored foes its not that great. Regular HP enemies die so easily its not that big of a deal. I'm often killing them with just one Lance. I crafted this one armor set(its from Remnants, it looks purple, I can't remember the name)that has massive power damage bonsues.

I almost had Throw maxed out. Had regular enemies, flying everywhere. Even increased the range to make sure I could knock out a group. But going pure biotics is only situational in this game. I added the Disrupt tech skill to remove the shield from enemies, but armored kett and big monsters would wreck me. Understanding which skills counter what took some time, but I respecced to be more balanced. I feel like the idea of allowing you switch loadouts is awesome, they just need to allow you to do it on the fly.

Agreed but I think allowing you to switch on the fly would be a little too overpowered.

 

I do wish we could control our squddies ability use though. Peebee spams Pull too often but doesn't use it when I actually want her to. :(

The more i play Andromeda, the less i understand the criticisms

 

It has flaws, but they are doing a lot and getting it mostly right.

Video games are like movies.  You can't really trust critics. I have movies in my collection that are rated terribly by critics and some are highly rated.  Ultimately, how they are rated doesn't matter because I'm an individual and like things that others like and others hate.
