Same Issue here, just got back into playing mw3 for fun and just barely a week into getting into it i have this issue, makes it unplayable for short bouts. I hope they resolve this!
If you don't have anything constructive to add then do not comment.
I'm being constructive by helping people not get their hopes up. If they didn't do anything about all the hacking I doubt they'll do anything about this, old dead game, no source of revenue=they don't care. I hope they prove me wrong but, I'm not gonna hold my breath. You do you though, good luck.
Im still having the same problem but sended a PM to activision support, it takes times but they answered me always.
Hope find a solution soon
Hey there, I am from Skandinavien. Have the same problem.
I got e-mail from Play station plus somewhere in begining of march that they will support no more Ps3 and Ps Vitas downloaded content in past from 8.03.2018 if you are not member of the PS plus. So what a coincident on the 9.3.2018 i got the problem finding games. Maybe the problem is extra DLC maps?
So my question is the extra maps what we all have in common that have problem finding lobbys? If not then my conspiracy theory falls in water.
This is only a wild goose chase.
I don't think that is the problem because I have no DLC packs. You may just have bad timing!
I find it interesting that someone, telling the truth, quite likely from experience and passing that on is told off for not being constructive.
I, from experience have an extremely low opinion of activision and their customer service, and agree whole heartedly with the "negative" post. In 2015 when I was first deranked in a public tdm lobby, I was told it did not happen by activision, when I contacted them, I believe by e-mail at the time, a method of contact I believe they no longer support. I had recorded the game, knew the individuals name, and if activision had wanted to look at the game to see this individual clearly cheating and then deranking at least one player, it would have been easy. They just DONT GIVE A S**T. It made me so angry to be told something I knew happened did not. Perhaps if game makers want us to buy new games they could make the new games better than the old ones, something a great deal of people clearly dont think has happen in this COD series. I bought the newer games up to ghosts, which I gave away soon after, as the online game was rubbish. MW3 is the only one I have played for years. If activision were a bit brighter they could offer a service for say £50 pa to properly support old popular games. I will not be buying any new ones from activision, if they want £50 a year from me i have suggested how they can get it. There is a good chance I will never return to this forum so if you wish to berate me for this post please feel free but dont think because I dont answer you that you are right.
