The matchmaking in this game. Amazing.

padiego

So far, I think I been the only one who has actually made any threads about the splendid matchmaking system in MW3. I made 2 in the past, but I figure out if something's not spammed, its not fixed. Well, I'm not going to spam, but instead, I'll just make a semi-long thread about the wonderful matchmaking we have in MW3.

 

Back in Black Ops, I could look past the Famas, rapid fire and hackers because I knew I could always back out at the end of the match and find another lobby. Of course, due to Treyarch magic, sometimes, members of the party got left behind. Even with that annoyance, a match for a 5-man party could easily be found in 5-10 minutes. I thought it was a lot. WRONG. Modern Warfail 3 came out and WOW. The game wasn't even a full game. It was more like the Alpha of the Alpha, that's how bad this game was at release(and continues to be, ATM, the game feels like a beta.). Let's travel back to the present. So right now, most of the crap has been fixed. Spawns still suck, but I can look past that(motion sensors FTW!). People refuse to use any weapons/tactics other than the Fab7(let's call it Fab7, FMG9s-PP90M1-P90rapidfire-Striker-Type95-MP7-Nerdscoping).I could look past all the crap in the game if it wasn't for the wonderful matchmaking system. I assume by now you caught up and know that when I say wonderful, I mean garbage.

So..The matchmaking system is great when you're playing solo. Its fine when its a 3 man party. But or 4-5 man parties....Its horrible. Yesterday, I waited 30 minutes for a match before I gave up, turned off the wii, and teabagged the MW3 disc. Its seriously broken. This game is garbage enough. Its already the worst game in history IMO, even worst than ET. Why is it garbage? Because when I finally find a match, its pure luck wether I get a good lobby, a lobby full of haxors, or a lobby full of people using the Fab7. I have to stay and suffer through it because I don't feel like waiting 30 mins. for another match.

ITs gotten to the point where I had to segregate my parties. If you're strict NAT, bye bye. Moderate NAT? If there's a better offer, bye bye.

Sometimes I gotten to the point of kicking 2 people so I have a small party of 3 to actual find a match.

 

I know this doesn't affect most of you, because a lot of you guys run solo, but I hate playing with randoms, so I usually have a 3-5 man party with me, and its really GARBAGE that I have to wait 30 minutes for a GARBAGE match.

Don't get me wrong, I like this game when its not hanging me by the *****, I can look past the garbage, but if I don't have a piece of mind that I could always back out and find another match...

.

Before you come in here and give a smart*ss answer like "Well, if you don't like the game, then don't play it", know that I really do hate this game, and the only thing drawing me back to it is the hope that one day, matchmaking will be fixed.

    Did you really play ET?  I don't think it's quite that bad.

  • Re: The matchmaking in this game. Amazing.

    As someone who usually plays with a full party as you know, I also hate this matchmaking rubbish and nowadays dont mind playing solo, or just with 1 other player, which kinda sucks.

     

    Regarding your fab7 thing, from me personally, the maps are that small its almost impossible to use anything else bar maybe 3 guns. Iver tried all the ARs, and though the guns arent that bad, you keep running into smg/shotty guys who blow you away EVERY 1v1. I cant snipe for sh1t, and I cant use a shotty to save my life, LMGs are far too heavy for a runner like me, so its smgs for me. The striker and the type95 do nothing for me, I might as well use my knife. The 2nd last smg unlocked, is like a water pistol, and should be akimbo, the ump and mp5 are virtually worthless unless your VERY good, which im not. Leaving PP90 which I dont like really, the P90 which looks awful, but I keep dying to it so im going to try it today, and my beloved MP7

      I do feel bad for all the groups out there trying to join lobbies. I honestly do. I play solo for that reason. I played a few times with allies in a group and decided, to hell with this. Even if they fixed the problem I would continue to play solo. My decision. I just have a better time playing and not worrying about the rest of the group and what they think other people should be doing. I agree with your complaint on matchmaking. Sucks for you guys. I'm serious.

      On the other complaint in your thread about the Fab7. Come on. Quit worrying about what other people use. I had a guy complain because I was using  "Predictable weapons." Please. I use all the weapons. I am constantly changing my classes so that I can finish the challenges. Of course I have favorite weapons and I'll be sure to use them when I do come across someone who is MP akimbo. That's how it's done. Not by complaining but adapting to neutralize the other peoples weapons. As of right now I have over half the weapons over 1000 kills each. I also have a handful over 2500 kills.

      All I'm trying to say is quit complaining about what people choose to use and just adapt and learn to beat them even if it means at their own game. I only use MP akimbo when I am sniping and moving from location to location. Do I think that's how everyone should use them? Heck no. Last time I checked we all are given the right of choice. That's why we payed for the game. To make our own decisions on how to play and not have that decided for us. Just play to have fun and adapt to make it fun . PEACE.

      Like I said in my post, back in Black Ops, I didn't care about OP weapons because if I ever ran into a lobby full of people using them, I just leave the lobby at the end of the match.

       

      I don't mind one or two, even three people using the Fab7, but sometimes I run into those lobbies were the whole enemy team is using akimbo FMG9s and PP90M1s. That's when I get mad, because I have no choice BUT to stay in the lobby because I know its gonna take another 30 minutes to find another one.

       

      Anyways, yesterday, a wise wizard showed me how to perform these two amazing glitches, in-game lag switch and secondary profficiencies. If it gets to the point where I'm stuck in a lobby full of people using the Fab7(4 or more), then I'll clean out the lobby by making the whole enemy team ragequit due to their game freezing . Nah, I probably won't do it...maybe..

        Seriously? Don't go to cheating in order to win. If you are in a group and you come across another group who use the Fab7 as a group change to your Fab7 buster classes and have a bullet fest. I've come across plenty of people and groups who fly around with MP akimbo and I still can beat them without resorting to cheating or using akimbo weapons. The only class I have with an akimbo MP in it is my sniper class. That's strictly for movement and close range battle while snipng. I do alot of flanking when I come across groups and individuals who use the Fab7. Just please don't go cheating, that's what's ruining the game.

          I want to call his bluff myself, but don't want to push him over the edge. Hmm.........

          You can't call bluff on me. I have beastblood as my witness, my akimbos had damage on them, and I made the whole game freeze at will.

           

          Don't worry. I am extremely against cheating on public matches. However, if it ever comes to the point where my head exploded after I get killed by the billion time by a Fab7.....it will happen. Nothing can beat akimbo FMG9s better than akimbo FMG9s with damage...

          • Re: The matchmaking in this game. Amazing.

            Now I can see what you were doing. I did wonder, and it was very late

            That's good to hear you don't cheat in public matches. Personally I have 2 SMG classes setup that I use against the MP akimbo users. The first is any SMG I'm trying to get to 2500 kills(Working on the UMP, 100+shy) with rapid fire and silencer with a stinger for secondary for pesty helis with the assault package, so I can put up my pesty helis. Hee hee. The second is the MP7 with silencer and extended mags, MP-9's akimbo (In case I feel like being a total douche and really stickin it to 'em) with the specialists package to become a super soldier. When I pull out the MP-7 class that means business is about to be dealt. Usual ends with many rage quits. If I'm in a larger map say seatown or bakarra that has sniping points I will pull out my MSR class and quick scope the hell out of them with a Portable Radar and a claymore to cover my back. Once again I will start to see rage quits. Not that I'm mad at 'em. Just figured if they want to play hardball I will to. Now I'm far from being the best player I just play strategically. PEACE.

        Id no idea what you were doing last night

  • Re: The matchmaking in this game. Amazing.

    I lol'd @tea bagging the game

     

    Well, my complaints are 2:

     

    1) A party of 3 or + trying to find a match... It takes a lot sometimes...

     

     

    2) Another thing that bothers me is the fact that if you leave one lobby or match (because you just saw some haxors) and try to find another match, the game will put you in the same lobby/match 99% of the time. It happens to me a lot on HCTDM, I see some haxors, I leave and try to find another match.... then I end up in the same lobby, i leave again, wait 2 minutes, try to find a match and guess... yes, it puts me in the same (already playing) match. It is really stupid.

    They should make the join match feature by going through 50ms > 75ms > 100ms > 125ms > 150ms > Any available matches like on other consoles instead of going through every ten ms like in MW2 (which the MW3ii gets)

    always in a 6 man party never once more the 2 mins to find a lobby

  • Re: The matchmaking in this game. Amazing.

    Lol teabagging the game disc. However, I don't really have this problem, as for some reason, if I create any party, I create a new game lobby (idk why, sometimes it's annoying when you only have 2 people), but with 5, the game starts in like 30 seconds or less.
