I seriously don't understand why it won't pick me ...

Please help, i don't understand why it wont choose me as host? i have 57 megabytes download speed, it says host migration multiple times but then it will say cant find a good host, the game is really laggy like jumping 20 forward laggy, i want to enjoy playing and i know if it would just pick me it would be better? Please explain

Download/upload dont determine connection quality.

one of the main tests for being selected in the host race is upload speed, and ping to you from other players.

your ping is a a measurement between you and a another server and back, it is not a set number

where abouts are you based?

I live in Colorado, i just don't understand really, if they say that host is not determined by upload or download speed and my ping doesn't matter, what makes a good host? im just so sick of getting laggy games

k what platform, how are you connected to the game ie wireless/wired and have you forwarded the correct ports on your console?

also what game modes are you playing when this occurs?

I am playing on the xbox 360, wired connection, im not sure what you mean by forwarded the correct ports but i run hdmi directly to tv, ethernet cable directly from modem/router to console, game modes i typically play are TDM, kill confirmed and domination

Why does it matter that your host?

Matchmaking is severely broken in this game. Lag is so bad for xbox360 peeps, a lot of times it's retardedly unplayable. And I'm not using that as an excuse for poor shooting or aiming.
