We all experienced the Black Ops style....whatever that was. I would like the style/type brought back from MW2 that showed the ping. It made you aware of how good of a lobby you were getting into based on connection. Feel free to discuss in hopes of a better matchmaking/lobbymaking system.
Well we have seen they brought back the ping search partially. I would love to see the full search increase, going by 10ms, how it did in MW2. Please IW/SH.
The matchmaking in black ops is atrocious, i dont know how it works but i do know that default, locale and local only make ZERO difference to the type off games i get. When playing solo i enter lobbies which are without doubt outside the UK. I've also noticed that i only have the advantage when the host is on the other team. Its seems evident that a 3 bar connection is better than a 4 bar. This fail off a game would have been something special had they nailed this properly. Its obvious it cannot be fixed as the volume off threads on the black ops forum in relation cannot go unnoticed by the developers.
On the up side for MW3 i did watch a few vids from the COD XP event which does seem to show the same ping system from mw2.. I only hope data collected for elite / theater mode doesnt interupt the connections and throw players out off sync. If it does they really ought to disable the feature alltogether.
I had considered ordering the hardened edition but should the issues from blops creep into MW3 it would be a waste off money. Much better to hold back and purchase the elite package at a later date just to be sure.
Maybe folk have seen this vid but if your only interested in the way the matchmaking works go to 24:30 and watch the next 10 seconds to see.
Thanks for that. Cleared things up. The ping-based matchmaking is great; glad to see it returning.
