I've noticed that not only me but a ton of people have been having this trouble lately. For the past week I've been barely able to get into any lobbies at all, haven't been able to join any and it shows its looking for games but never finds any. I've done everything on my end; changing my routers around, restarting them, going direct from my wall outlet to my xbox, and nothing is working. Everyone I talk to is having the same trouble and it has to be something on your end. I've had this game since it came out and its getting to the point where I'm going to have to quit playing it till something gets changed on the servers with this game. Who all else is having this trouble or is it just me now.
Yeah, I haven't played for a couple months, and today I was bored and decided to try and play. TDM and KC both just sticks me in empty lobbies that never fill. My NAT is Open and I have tried ever setting for search preferences. After three hours of trying I gave up and tried Domination. I was able to get into a Domination Lobby. Even then when it was searching it said one lobby available.
I thought there for a moment that everyone else got tired of the BO2 BS and quit playing like I did. But when you look at the map it shows the US being lit up like a chritmas tree. Just doesn't make much sense to me.
Exactly. I've tried doing both hard core and core, I'm a big hc gamer, and I've done kill confirmed and domination and it won't get me into a game at all. I was trying to play some before I went to work but it won't get me into any game at all. i've gotten into some ffa earlier this week but I've been having trouble all week.
Some say it's because your DLC packs don't match to whoever's online. If you remove/add certain DLC pack(s) your chances getting into a match increase.
That is BS, yesterday I was able to get into a match just fine with only 2 map packs but now today I can't get into any. It is searching and then throws me into a lobby with only myself and searches forever, then restarts just to do the same crap all over again. There is something wrong on their end.
IIn other CoD's this improved, in this game it has literally got worse every single update. I feel for people that live in places where you need to have your search preference set to ANY just to get into a game.
there is no more money to be made by Treyarch on this installment of COD.....all DLC has been dropped and anything but minor tweaking is no longer profitable.....bottom line is the game in its current state is in its final stages and will remain as such until all support drops off completely...
Pretty sure, that Treyarch and all its support groups are focusing on the 2014 installment and building their next generation of COD for the new XBOX one platform
I understand there is a problem but this game doesnt play on servers. The MOST it could be is the Microsoft Matchmaking servers which are a totally different animal. Matchmaking servers are not controlled by Activision. Once you connect onlie and see the version numbers change you are in control of the matchmaking servers.
Now if you are in an isolated area that can cut down your chances of getting into lobbies. As well as many other factors involved.
As for me once in a while I get no servers found, so I back and and the matchmaking servers show up again.
I thought MW2 was the last game that used Microsoft's matchmaking system, whereas the others since then used Demonware?
I only have that problem after 10pm where I live any time before then I find lobbies fine. after 10.. its wait for 5-10 to find a match.
