Black Ops 2 will have a sure way to join players over the world using Ping and Latency instead of regions.
So if you have a bad connection, you get thrown in a game with more people having a bad connection, leading to a totally unplayable game! This is a stupid idea treyarch
Stop downloading your porn the same time you play your games! :P Ping & Lat are the best way to go for making a strong lobby. Quicker send/receive times are something people can't complain about! :D And honestly you should have at least a decent minimum bandwidth to play online anyways.
I never said i have a bad connection. Im speaking for the people with bad connections
I don't download my porn.
If you have a bad connection, this won't affect you. You're screwed no matter what they do. Making it search by ping is what mostly every pc multiplayer has because it's the best way to go. This is a good idea from treyarch. Definitely not a stupid one.
Upgrade your internet connection. simple as that. Not enough money? Get a better job. No high speed internet in your area? Stop playing online games. If you can't stop playing, just take what you can get.
One does not simply "get a better job".
my network is the best in my country , i will say it again .. -it's unlimited but have limit -they claim i will get 24mb but i only get less then 1mb and when the limit finish i get less then 10 kb even though they said i will get 200kb... -it cost me 60$ -it's not for gaming so the best nat type i get is 2... i also have 5 brothers xD , but i checked the network before anyone use it , it's from the company , i even doubt the limit they put is true.. so i don't have choice T_T , but im used to beat people with red connection :P ...
Where did i say that i have a bad internet connection?
You may not have directly said that you have a bad internet connection, but your comment implied that you do.
I like the idea, I have a good connection :P, but seriously this is a great idea I hope it works. The match making in COD has always sucked, yet it would be really awesome if they could fix the problem where the host leaves and the game ends.
STFU, in most PC high PING players get kicked, they're annoying, just get a better connection
Nowhere did i say that my internet sucks.. calm down kid
I'm going to have to be that guy aren't i? You make BILLIONS from this damn franchise, give your fans dedicated servers! The amount of time and money spent trying to make work-arounds like the nonsense lag compensation from MW3 etc could probably have implemented some of the industries best dedicated servers. What use is the 60fps you never stop hearing about if all you are getting is ultra-smooth looking lag and terrible hit boxes? If substantially smaller games like Homefront can do it, i'm pretty sure Activision have the manpower and resources 10-fold.
Thank you...someone that shares my line of thought...this is something that babells me quite some time...some free4play mp have dedicated servers but not Actvision.apparently is way to expensive for them...greedy bastards
I wish more games did this, specially fighting games.
Treyfart coming through
Is Acti still saying they can't afford dedicated servers? To think 'bout the amount of money they've made with every single release... And this is the thanks they give to their blindly loyal fanbase, the same crappy matchmaking system but one that has finnaly been made with common sense? Screw that, seriously.
This will hopefully, and more than likely, lead to a smoother online experience.
Awesome! Ive always wanted to play with Europeans across the world or Japanese.I heard their good players. This will finally broaden the playing field and anybody from anywhere can play in a same match. Great job Treyarch! :D
