Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 experiencing multiplayer issues on the Wii U

Activision issued a statement late yesterday evening in order to inform fans that they are aware that several Wii U players are experiencing trouble connecting to the game’s multiplayer and zombie modes on the new Nintendo system. Developer Treyarch also informed fans that they are looking into the issue, stating the following, "We understand that a number of Wii U players are experiencing issues with MP. We’re working to address...stand by for updates." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Wii U)

I was able to connect last night and play, but I noticed on Miiverse alot of people were having issues. I hope Treyarch can figure out the issue quickly.

Since when does a platform not have any issues with call of duty?

this is a set up so Activision wont port the other games to the U. think about it, we don't even have the map packs yet

Who in their right mind would play Black Ops 2 on Wii U? There is no online community compared to PS3 and 360. That's like by buying Madden 07 and playing online. There won't be any map packs for the Wii U, is Activision going to make any money for porting them over? Negative!

There may not be as much of a community but since i've been playing i haven't been insulted once..and the kids on there don't pop up very often. Quality over quantity.
Plus it doesn't help it was a late port. When the next version of COD comes out i can see the communities numbers being in favour of the WiiU. Being able to play with wiimote controls is also a big bonus. If Activision want people to buy their game they need to sell it to them. I'd buy the DLC on it and i know others who would as well.

I play BO2 off-screen on the gamepad. It is amazing, I love it, regardless of community size. Go and purchase a Wii U before you ask "why".

I own a Wii U, but there are no games. Thank god for bc, I bought SM Galaxy 2 yesterday, stunning game! Nintendo needs to get a new 3D Mario and a new Zelda with a real controller. Skyward Sword gave me head ache after headache.

As for Black Ops 2, I have it for 360. Trust me, it's a big community trumps off-screen play.

How big does a community have to be to be "big enough" though? I have Blops2 for the Wii U and have never struggled to get a game online... It's not like you're stood there in a barren wasteland with nobody else playing - the game only supports a finite number of players in a single match (I forget how many) and there's certainly enough players online to fulfil that quota many many (many?) times over.

1.) Wii U is free to play online
2.) Off screen play
3.) No issues finding a match regardless of community size
4.) The players are just as good in terms of skill
5.) Graphics are the same or better
6.) Is a fulfilling COD experience; it's the same game regardless of platform
7.) No sh*t talking asshats
8.) Miiverse Community
9.) 2 players, without split screen
10.) Supporting Nintendo 3rd party games.

All the reasons that I can think of right now. I think the game is just as good or better on Wii U. To me, it does not matter if there are 5,000 or 50,000 playing.

I'm close to my 4th prestige right now. Couldn't have gotten this far without people to play with right?

I agree with everyone here, quality over quantity. Also it's nice not getting hate mail when I dominate once in awhile. WiiU community is friendly indeed.
