I started using gamelift matchmaking with gamelift fleets for custom server builds, And i have major issue which i can’t wrap my head around.
Right now i have couple of setups which both have same issue “i think”,
Both setups have one thing in common which is matchmaking rule set, config and queue which all on us-east-1 “as it’s the only region available to me to make those features on”.
First setup, I have a gamelift fleet on us-east-1 works perfect with matchmaking and queue but for my current location us server has too much delay so i added couple of other locations to the fleet, ap-south-1 and me-south-1 “which both have way better ping/delay than us”, but trying to get in the queue for matchmaking it still deploys only on us-east-1 every single time. Even when i scale us-east-1 down to 0 the matchmaking ticket gets stuck in “PLACING” status which means it still tries to find server or fleet instance not active.
Second setup, the same matchmaking as the first one but what is different is the fleet is deployed on ap-south-1 and the queue target fleet set to that south-1, trying to place a ticket into queue will result on the same issue which gets stuck in placing and never find or deploys the server.
I can’t place matchmaking related stuff anywhere i deployed my fleets on “all the available options for me will result in the same delay as us-east-1”
Please let me know how if i missed some option to enable dynamic instance deployment or i did something wrong with my setups.
