I think IW/SH have created a case "They fixed what was not broken"
concerning the matchmaking ping system on consoles.
In MW2 I had no hit detection delay issues with the "Finding games
<50,60,70,80,90,100,110,120,130,140,150ms ping" system.
In MW3 it is now "Finding games <50,75,100,125,150ms ping".
I understand the reason you changed it was so games where found
faster, but now I am actually spending more time trying to find a game
that is playable because of a now increased gap in latency between
players with the revised system.
If a player in MW3 doesn't ping any games at ,50ms, they move to
<75ms. Well now there is a 25ms difference because in MW2 if you
didn't ping a game at <50ms, you then went on to <60ms. Only a 10ms
difference, now in MW3 you took that gap times 2.5.
It may not seem much, but I will be aiming first and die first, my
bullets never register. In MW2 that rarely happened. So the only
difference, is the revised ping system that is causing the issues with
So please change the system back to MW2's way, it was longer, but it
was worth the wait.
Also, after patch 1.03. I am getting increased stutters every few
seconds, along with team mates bumping into me causing glitching and
weird movements, and my player gets stuck on objects as well, and
screen freezes. At times this is way worse than any lag I can get.
I noticed this also Dex. I usually made in between 50-70 ms on MW2 . Usually around 50-60 ms range. If there are enough people playing now I will go right in at 50ms on MW3. I wish they would put it back at the MW2 range until they tweak the system to lessen latency if possible. I am loving the game but some of the dispareges in timing can piss you off.
I have never experienced lag like this before, every 10 seconds I am a red bar connection. Called my ISP had tests ran, reset everything on the system, tested out other games...all fine. But as soon as I hit MW3 red bar.
Makes this game virutally unplayable, I have no idea what to do.
I want to make a suggestion. What about you give us the ability to search for locale games only, like it was in Black Ops. At least it could prevent getting mixed with players between Europe & USA if everyone chooses this option. No offense to anyone, but it´s a joke playing on a p2p network between two continents.
Sorry, my first language isn´t Englisch.
