Thank you for your anecdote, it was exhilerating. However, if I were in Activision's shoes, I wouldn't do anything about modded rooms / hackers either if it became a common occurrence. If you want to volunteer for a full-time job with overtime to correct for these things then be my guest.

 

Frankly, if you don't like Activision then don't buy their products. I want a solution to my problem, not a negativity fest attacking the people I want help from. Perhaps if you were more respectful, people would be more willing to help you. I indeed hope that you don't return Smiley Wink

Thank you for your suggestion. I tested it by trying to disable DLC, but it didn't make a difference.

 

After contacting Activision Support on Facebook, I can say that they are still looking into it but unfortunately there is no ETA for a solution. Fingers crossed for a solution soon Smiley Happy

How many times did you contacted activision, did they tell you something?

Is it Nat type moderate and strict that is problem, did they abandoned Ps3 games, is it problem with fiber internet, maybe matchmaking is down?

Matchmaking primer filter is DLC maps, it divide people in groups who have it and not. There is a lot of things that can effect matchmaking : network connection, time of day, region.

Twice now, but I don't really know anything about what they are doing. NAT type moderate is not a problem because it never has been in the past. This problem started happening overnight and has spread over at least three continents.

DLC maps are disabled completely. Although I wonder if disabling the DLC maps on 08/03/18 on the server side has caused matchmaking problems. We will find out soon enough I guess.

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 have dlc maps and it happens to me so, itsi not the dlc maps

I completely understand the frustration this may have caused as I still play old FPS, RPG and fighting games that are far past the 8-year mark as well. Rest assured knowing that the developers are aware and actively looking into why the matchmaking system is not working correctly so please stay tuned for more news and updates on the matter.

Best Regards,

So far this is the best I have gotten from Activision Support, really not that much help.

But at least it is a reply and were not in the dark

So it is matchmaking system, hmm. DLC maps, network connection, time of day and region. At the end we will all have to buy DLC maps or delete them. Or we all need to get fiber connection (min 100/100). Time of day and region is nothing we can do about.

Maybe not...

Just get as many friends as you can (known and unknown).

You can play with your friends in game they are already playing online or privat. As long your friend has the join in-game setting enabled (the most has), you will be able to join them in a game with a click of a button. Maybe not in privat match if you have strict nat.
