Connections and Matchmaking: Post yours!

So, with the copy n paste lag comp settings from MW2 being introduced to MW3, the lag comp in Core TDM is pretty good. BUT, the matchmaking sucks. Most days the game has trouble putting me into a single 50 ms lobby (when matchmaking is taking place, the "searching for matches with xx ms ping..." never stops on 50 ms) over the 2-3 hour time I play. This makes no sense, and I intend to show this with a little math, and showing my ping to major metro areas. Feel free to post your own connections and matchmaking experiences.

Total Population of Only the Major cities within a 50 ms ping to me: 8,665,042

Total Players Online on MW3 xbox: 352,429

Lets say 50% of players online are in the USA (could be more, prob more TBH)=176,214 players in USA

Divide by total population of USA(354 million), 0.05% chance any given citizen could own MW3 on xbox in the USA.

Multiply the total population of the major metro areas within a 50ms ping to me, and you get 433,252 total availible players within a 50ms ping from me at any given time. How can matchmaking not put me in a 50ms lobby.

 

Criticism is welcome.
