I'm going to chalk this one up to probably makes sense without even asking the question.

I'm making an assumption that while in a squad of players with a mix of regional accounts, the player that launches a search for a match will search within their own region's servers.

As mentioned previously, though in the UK, I have a US account, thus I'll hook up with US server matches. Should I have someone in my squad with a UK account in the UK (or US for that matter) and they launch a match, we'll be looking at the UK servers (or EU servers...where ever they're located).

I'd imagine this is a PSN specific thing, not a Dreadnought thing.

I suppose in some respects, this could be a way to get around the I'm in the UK but stuck on US servers problem if true.

You cannot squad with people that have their account registered in another region.

Yep, it kind of sucks at the moment, cause the game appears really abandoned daytime and it would have been better if we had an option to join the sequel of the US games. Right now, the only thing that works daytime in Europe is the veteran onslaught and I am sick of it.

At some point in the next couple months, we intend to remerge the PS4 regions so that matching and grouping between regions becomes possible. The work to do this has been underway for several months already (it is not trivial due to how entitements work between accounts in different regions and some other factors). We will have more news on this topic (but not completion of the task), I hope, in about a month.

That's good to hear. Just for clarification, by remerge you mean merge as I assume there was no split that had taken place at some point in the past?

I would think that, much like Apple leaves it up to the app devs to deceide whether an app is available within a particular market or not, the console game devs should also have the say. I can't see much standing in the way to disallow a game within a particular market.

That is correct Railgun. Our goal is to have the regions playing together in due time.
