Right now it might just be a numbers game. Lag is worse for me now, but that's mainly because I keep getting tossed into lobbies with French, Puerto Rico, Mexican, German, Australian, Holland, and British players. Cool dudes, but the connection is atrocious. Hopefully with Christmas noobs coming, our numbers will increase to where I won't need a passport or Rosetta Stone to play this game. Keep me in the States even if I have to wait 10 minutes to get into a match!!!

My guess if dedicated servers aren't here by Christmas, they won't happen. What's the point if it's after that? Piss off more people to where they don't play/don't buy? Now that's a smart business model

They think they're being smart by saying nothing. They know people will keep playing or buy the game through their addiction. And yes last night was a joke for us too, britts and Americans. This game just sucks, I'm staying away from it until the patch comes. If nothing important is fixed I think I'll take the game back, protest like heck and stand outside the shop if I have to and make a big fuss if I don't get a refund..

Well that's what I get for being happy about the game running smooth for two days.  Back to lagging today.  There were only 250 people playing TDM though so it's not surprising.  There were well over 400 on my two good days which is unusual for this time of night.

Ran like a champ tonight.  Annoying.  This back and forth is annoying.  If they are searching by location they need to change it to search for ping first or whatever Muffin said in his video.

You know what? To my complete surprise I was host in a game yesterday, and I'm wondering how many times this has happened, because, I joined a game and found two clan members in it, after that match, I didn't notice they left the lobby to invite me, (we weren't using team speak) and I went into the next match. Anyway, as the game was setting up, I saw the invite message, but had to wait until the game started, as I left, I noticed in the top left of the screen it said, searching for new host, so like I said all along, my internet is just fine, its not my set up like people keep saying it is. Its all down to the WiiU and their codes or servers, something is just not compatible, that's why this thread, several pages of it, hasn't got an answer, they won't/can't admit they can't fix it and nothing will change. They know if they say it can't be fixed and there's nothing they can do, and the games performance will remain poor, no one else that reads it will buy this junk..

I tried using some marksman rifles today. I don't know whether it's the 2nd or the 10th bullet killing the man. The lag is like 600ms all the time.

Last night was the worst I've ever seen lag. I'm not the best player on the planet, but I can do very well and I'm a smart player. I was going 1-15, 2-18 for 10 matches straight. So much lag it was unplayable.

I love the fact that we have wiimote plus gamepad split screen options...but online all it does is drag the game down. If someone comes in that is split screening I have to leave because they are adding so much lag to the game it's ridiculous. It was the same thing in BO2 and Zombies...kinda wish we didn't have that.

After having read through a lot of this thread (although, admittedly, not all) I can see a lot of people that are frustrated with the lag. And rightfully so. I'm frustrated with the lag also.

The game needs better matchmaking. Right now, it's matching you up with international players and there's no way to restrict searching for local games only. What's baffling is that this option existed in Black Ops 2!  I do not understand why they took away this functionality, but I can only assume they had a good reason for doing so (as difficult as that is to believe). 

Either way, there's also a lot of people blaming lag for their poor performance. This is true to an extent. The fact is, you won't do as well with lag. But to say it's impossible to do well is false.

IW just keeps taking steps backwards.............. Can't even mute a specific person mid game. :/
