Friends in different regions?

Recommended Posts

ObiWanJacobey

Hello my fellow Tarkov'rs. I have a question, I'm trying to play with a buddy, I'm in the USA/NA region, and he's in the EU region. Is it possible to play with friends in other regions? Or can you change your region to play with someone else in a different region? We tried to que up but couldn't figure out how, so I'm asking just to see if I'm missing something..or to see if it's even possible. Thanks.

Join the same time on your picked map... e.g woods at 11.00am. Your friend should be in the lobby with you :)

I have had zero issues playing with American friends. I'm from UK. I just found them in the lobby and made a party as I would anyone else.

I've played with friends all over the world and haven't noticed any major difference.

Obviously as predicted my latency would be higher playing US server rather than UK but it's not that noticeable.

Wait, so if anyone could play with anyone from any region, how is the server determined? Is this why sometimes i get crazy lag because i'm connected to an EU server from US?

If I recall, it will connect to the group leaders region.

Stay in Canada, UK isn't as advertised ;)

On serious note, I'm not 100% sure that is the case. I'm sure I saw it rebounded on a post somewhere but until a Dev confirms it don't take it to heart :P

Been to England many times. My wife is from there and we have plans to move back for work and family reasons. Also the Montreal winter is so much worse than your weather and i cant stand it anymore. i hope i can play with my NA friend,  he got the game because i convinced him we'd play a lot together.

Question has been answered, but here is a recap.

The server you connect to depends on your IP, if your IP address is in the US you will connect to us server.

If you are in a group, the server will be determined on the group leaders IP address location.

To play with friends just make sure to join the same lobby at the same time, find air name and add to group by right-clicking
