FYI #MW3 players in remote areas; I understand the recent update on XBOX 360 has adjusted your matchmaking, it will be addressed swiftly
Well, here's my two cents.
I just came on the game, not too long ago and I've had nothing but 3 hours of my life wasted completely in lobbies where my connection bars never exceeded 2 bars in total.
The lag is horrible, the match making is even worse and I'm not even going to mention the time I have to spend WAITING to join a lobby.
I currently live in a shitty country named "Croatia" and the match making in here is bad. Before this patch, I would need to restart the lobby searches a couple times to find 75 Ms games. I've never had a connection of 2 bars or less during that old style searching.
Why fix something that's not broken ? I didn't pay you 60 dollars + to have to wait 30 minutes for a lobby and then spend the entire game shooting blank bullets at targets that stand still.
Do me a favor, add a freaking setting (in the game settings) that we can choose to select either local or broad searching because this is rediculous. I think it would be the best thing to do. This way, the players could choose which works better =)
Also, this is my second forum account. The first doesn't even have the ability to post (With everything linked and verified). Could someone contact me regarding that ? Thanks.
So I hurried here to post my displeasure about the wonderful update that broke what was fixed itn he 1st place.. then I decided to read through some of the past posts and I am now wondering if it makes any sense.
Whatever they did reintroduced lag to even my main menu... and once I saw this moving slowly I knew for sure that the demons were back!
For the 2nd time now I've implemented the simple fix which anyone can try:
1. Remove the MW3 disc
2. Put in any other disc (BF3 works best)
3. Launch the new title
4. Continue to have fun with your Microsoft Xbox 360 until you're starving and your eyes begin to bleed
Ok, that´s it! Paid for this game 8th november with Elite, couldn´t play online until late december and i could only play Barebones. Now, in late February i could play most game types without any lag issues. Updated last night and i haven´t found a single match in 25 hours. Now, i want my money back.
each update just makes it worse for me, now region lock is back i can find 2 maybe 3 games with the same people in tdm and no other game. and the lag is even worse. work that one out.
i find it strange there was maybe 12 of us on tonight, most from the uk 2 from denmark and 2 from usa. now the ones from usa with slower internet, have no trouble joining the guys from the uk. the 2 from denmark could not get in the screen would stop at loading the map for both. i know i have 30/30 not sure about the other. but we could not join......it took maybe 40 mins before one of us could get in..
so now i can play the same people in tdm knowing i will get host which means i will be laged comped the crap out of, or i can not play it...............it is as if you want to stop people playing this game, i dont get it............. i have no desire to play with the same few people all the time..... and i do not ever want to be host.. give me a choice local. eu.. rest of the world. 3 simple choices and then give me a choice consider being host yes or no.i have still not been able to play the new map. now i payed for it to play it early. but i cant . no games found........ you are not giving what you promised........
