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.
