Civ5 Steam Games list
« on: September 25, 2010, 01:06:29 AM »
It seems that you will only see the games for whatever download region you are in. If you are on the chicago server for example you can only see games hosted by players on the same server. To change your download region go to Steam/settings/downloads/download regions and a drop down list will give you a list of diff regions to choose from.

This seems to be one of the few downsides of Steam, I suggest that all league games be played on the New York Server as a standard, that way we can all see our league games together.

You can host private games and invite your friends to them no matter what server they are on though.

I suggest modify the first post.

if you do this, check your general lag first and compare after


I switch to NY, started getting terrible lag, switched back to London and back to normal - not great but significantly better.

Given i've never joined a game via the multiplayer lobby, hasn't affected ability to get games

Yes their does seem to be some Steam mechanics at play here as well, so milage may vary.  I've asked the dev's about this to get clarification on how steam works.  When I find out I'll post that info here.

I've recieved some clarification on the way steam lists game, apparently it is not entirely related to the download/cloud server, but steam filters it so only games within a certain amount of lag/latency are shown.  So that explains why for some people switching servers doesn't change the list much.  So I guess for now for now running games off the player list's join function is going to remain the standard.

When I learn more I'll pass any info on.

No wonder I could not see any league game ever hosted!

Being in Greece is not very good for playing at Steam it seems.

Well just come into the CP Steam Group Git, and join the game being organized their, it seems that that will have to be our SOP until, if ever, they give us a global server.

I am looking all over the forums for the CP Steam Group and I cannot find it. I guess I can look in steam itself under groups / Civ5, maybe a sticky with some instructions might be easier tho.

The chat link on the left menu does take you directly to the CP Steam Chat, but here is our group link as well.
