Are there not enough players on MW3 in the US? Why do I get placed in a lobby full of Brits, Nords and maybe a French guy? Maybe if I lived in the Northeast, I'd be a little less pissed off. But I live in the West Coast and there is no reason why I need to be placed in lobbies halfway across the damn globe! Damn, can't IW get anything right?
As another thread rages on about the differences between PS3 and Xbox I can say I agree with you on the PS3 side of things.
I had a PS3 "fat" since launch and it recently died. I had 100k+ kills on the PS3 version but instead of buying another PS3 I bought MW3 for the Xbox to hold me over until BO2.
Like you it seemed I was always put into foreign lobbies as it didnt seem there were a ton of players online when I was looking for a game. Its not like I play odd hours either it can be anywhere between noon and 10:00 PM EST (Retired).
I dont have this issues with the Xbox. I routinely find 10-15 games everyday while searching the 50 ms ping and never am I put into a foreign lobby.
I have since picked up another PS3 because that was also my Blu Ray player for that TV but I am staying on the Xbox version.
I've been playing CoD on PS3 since CoD4. I have never had such issues until MW3. Thanks for the input, but I'm sure it's not my consoles fault that I get put into foreign lobbies, it's the game's Matchmaking that is broken. This has been a big issue since last patch.
The heat map in the MP main menu shows nearly all of North America lit up. I don't think not enough people are playing, match making just shoves the first 12 people it can find into a lobby and send them on their way
I posted a video of me ranting about this earlier, its absolutely ridiculous. No disrespect to the fine people of Mexico and I am eternally greatful for you bringing Taco Bell to my country, however I do not want to play Call of Duty with you.
