I LOL'd HARD @ #1 comment. You might as well say Treyarch created the COD series!. HAHAHAHAHA.
Scary69  +   1885d ago
I have been in several games where host leaves and connection is interrupted.This should have been part of the patch and it is becoming more common since the patch ridiculous.

Title should be "What it fixed and what it broke"

Can't seem to stay with my friends now and my NAT type is open.
BulletProofVess  +   1885d ago
yeah me and my mates cant even join a party together...


but i do enjoy the load straight to multiplayer feature and where it no longer auto loads in 3D

Aww, they reduced knife lundge, I was awesome at running out and stabbing people..
ghostface  +   1885d ago
Same here. Keep getting disconnected or ps3 freezes.
young juice  +   1885d ago

playin free for all

"Treyarch doesn't do enough quality assurance with their patches/games. I guarantee that this new patch will cause other issues. I got rid of this game a few weeks after it came out of pure frustration."

I told you so, lol. Treyarch = garbage developers.
NickIni  +   1885d ago
Hopefully this will fix my pretty major issue of black ops not even fudging working. Keeps freezing five seconds in, but works fine on my other PS3 :(

EDIT And nope it didn't. Awesome.

naw, i dont think treyarch are garbage devs... it just appears to me that they are under a lot of pressure from activision.. id like to see what they could do if given complete freedom, because they seem to have a lot of raw talent that is being held down because they are forced to make cod clones.
gamerzBEreal17  +   1885d ago
true...have u guys got on Cod4 on ps3? OMG full of challenge lobbies and all camos and finger guns and laser sights and flashing lights and 50 foot high jumps and 3 kills for helli and unlimited noob toobs the game is a hackers play ground and when its not the connections are terrible
xAlmostPro  +   1885d ago
the party system, transmission error and scoping in with snipers aiming at a head then missing were my main problems.. they seem to have fixed it now xD ooh and the knife lunges haha
ImmortalLegend  +   1885d ago
Sad to see they didn't fix knifing at all
It's getting ridiculous with the panic knifing crap. I'm really getting tired of someone knifing me through bullets. If I shoot someone they should not be able to knife plan and simple. Man I cannot wait for Killzone 3 to come out because this alone is ruining the game for me.
Dave1351  +   1885d ago
well just be glad your not back in mw2 with commando! god i hated that
KillerBBs  +   1883d ago
On what Ball
Drijft what are you smoking?

It should work out of the box... Glad to see you giving Treyack props on there Billion Dollar broken Product. Do you work for them? Clean out your ear wax... everyone is PO over this title.

Demand a higher standard!

* Limit the ability to re-roll supply drops using Hardline Pro to Care Packages only, no other killstreak drops.

AssassinHD  +   1885d ago
It is for the best really. Re-rolling the SAM turret and sentry gun allowed for too many great kill streak awards with little effort. On one match over the weekend I got a Chopper Gunner, Gunship, and Attack Dogs back to back.

The xbox 360 update is coming today too. Most of the things being fixed are the same though.
N4GAddict  +   1885d ago
KingZFlipper  +   1885d ago
The 360 update is already live. Nice to see that Treyarch is supportive to the game. After a month it has already had the same amount of patches than MW2. And the patch is actually pretty decent.

FINALLY......Sorry I'm just so eager to play the game after it's fixed. :D
Mikelarry  +   1885d ago
i do hope they fix the issue on the ps3 vversion that constantly kicks me out of friends parties. espcially when im in the middle of a very good game.

Update: just read the fixes wooooooohooooooo bk on bops tonight then.

Yet you still cared enough about the game to post a stupid comment. If theirs a game that I don't care about, I stop reading news about it.
AssassinHD  +   1885d ago
He just wants attention. He probably does not even realize that by admitting that he sold it a week after release he is also admitting that he makes purchasing decisions without sufficient research, which is just foolish.

its great that theres no more lag,but i dont know why i cant get into headquarters,it shows loading screen the awaiting gamestate after that it goes waiting for player but then it just freezes.
The_KELRaTH  +   1885d ago
Gave it a try but so far I'm getting plenty of lost connections and even a total PS3 freeze halfway through a game.

Same (on PS3)
ecstaticpunk  +   1885d ago
I'm getting the same problems game either freezes or loses connection in the middle of a game, the patch has fucked the game up for me was perfectly fine before it was patched. (PS3)

patchfix incoming... then a patchfixpatch incoming etc.
mastiffchild  +   1885d ago
My wife has, literally, tried four times to get a simple game of TDM on PS3 Blops and every time it's ended up freezing on her before the end of one single match. She hasn't even got the chance to lose connection or any of the usual stuff that goes tits up with the undertested mess I was forced/conned into buying for her.

Seriously, it was weak before this patch and, so far, just seems to have introduced worse issues than there were to begin with. Every freeze has needed a total restart of the PS3 and we're now at the point where we're happy/feel safest leaving it til others start reporting a game that, y'know, sorta works again. Though why we should be shocked at a game this glitchy and devoid of beta and QA testing should magically improve after a single patch is kinda beyond me if I'm honest.

Started making us worry for the system tbh.
BlackTar187  +   1885d ago

I know what you mean my system kept freezing with Fallout NV so much so i have put it on hold until the game is patched to many freezes for me to think its healthy for my system. if this is true about cod im saddened cuz even though im not a big COD fan ima fan right now.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE CONFIRM THIS ON XBOX? i want to make sure i play on 360 tonight if this issues is so widespread.
RIPSKATEDESTROY  +   1885d ago
so far so good treyarch!
csreynolds  +   1885d ago
If it still lags like a mofo on PS3, I'll be regrettably unimpressed...

Yes, I'm hard to please, but what good is improved sniper accuracy, better spawning and reduced knife lunges if the game's online performance is still poor?

duplissi  +   1884d ago
good point... what i want fixed is hit detection when there is even the slightest amount of lag.... seriously the game will only perform well when everyone in the game has 4 bars...

Totally agree example...I shoot first get a couple rounds in the guy but I end up dead ..but I'm 100% sure I got the jump on him ....then I look at the kill cam and the guy is shooting me before I even see him...I'm like WTF ..I got 4bars I'm wired...I just play gt5 ..I've started playing mw2 way way less lag compare to this no lag
Simco876  +   1885d ago
Until they start having dedicated servers for console users, your online experience probably wont change. Its the nature of the beast.

Would you pay for dedicated servers? I mean you would only have to pay for it for a year, then your getting another Call of Duty.

I think I would, even though it sounds crazy!
MELMAN26  +   1885d ago
YEAH...I thought it was my tv at first (not being on game mode), its weird because sometimes its very snappy and I get nice kills and other times it seems like everyone sees me about half a second before I see them, and it is so frustrating.
humble_gamer  +   1885d ago
i have the same problem (ps3)
BlackTar187  +   1885d ago
Ill admit i have this issue on both. I just see them and im dead then i watch the kill cam and i should have been able to see him for a couple seconds according to the kill cam.
Sizzon  +   1885d ago
I'am still getting connection interrups on the PS3 version, lol good job there Treyarch, you guys friggin sucks balls.
AllroundGamer  +   1885d ago
Treyarch should take their time and upgrade the developer perk to Pro...

Latency is fine, graphics stuttering not so much.
StrikerZ3ro112  +   1885d ago
Lag, stuttering, same difference. Bottom line, it needs to be fixed. I'm tired of running across the map and as soon as someone comes into view, SCREEN FREEZE.

Yep....screen freeze for me also...PS3 version. Had to hard reset...It almost feels like Fallout: New Vegas again....they patched it...but shit I had to hard reset FO: New Vegas a few days ago at least twice.....This is getting a bit ridiculous...I'm thinkin Class action
blodulv  +   1885d ago
Will have to try this out tonight... the game is awesome but the amount of lag has been downright unacceptable for such a blockbuster release. Never played MW2, was it the same as this???

It's a shame to have such an addictive MP system be hampered by ridiculous lag. The fact that I'm paying for XBL to play this also should be included in the bullshit factor.

This patch is actually a set back, i lag more than i did with 1.04, plus the framerate issues and disconnections. I am putting this game back for a refund.
SJPFTW  +   1885d ago
yuppp i agree tried playing this morning totally unplayable. Too many host migrations, disconnections and lag. you would of think billions made from sales would at least give us dedicated servers on consoles. i hearing great things from killzone 3 multiplayer side (didnt really enjoy the second one due to poor controls), and i recall it has dedicated servers, too bad i got to wait a couple more months.
blodulv  +   1885d ago
This is how it has been for me for about a week and a half now... with the lag being present since launch.

I was saying the same thing last night. "Man, I can't wait for Killzone".

Well, nice to see Treyarch has the support for their games like they always have. I think Infinity Ward just got lazy or something.
eatonm62  +   1885d ago
Its good that Treyarch are fixing things fairly fast BUT why on earth is there so much wrong with this game dont they test before release ?
I had brought BO for my PS and Xbox but after all the issues friends have had with the PS i sent it back, the game has been a poor show for a software house i had a lot of respect for .
dkgshiz  +   1885d ago
Treyarch,Infinity ward need to hire some new programmers. Updates should fix things, not break... Every COD is always the same. They try to patch something and end up breaking another thing. Infinity Ward was the worst developers for breaking games.

Why dont they just fix there games before they release them? i recall Goldeneye 007 and Turok 2 had glitches but they were still awesome and patches to break something else
buzzie24  +   1885d ago
Yea great update can't even finish a round without connection issues or host issues it just made things extirely worse than before. now i guess ill have to play something else because the issues alone are pissing people off from playing.
Sizzon  +   1885d ago
Excatly the same as me.
abc1233  +   1885d ago
Great. More lag, more disconnects, and longer waiting times. Gotta love updates, they just keep giving.
Sizzon  +   1885d ago
The game has fucking froze 2 times for me now after 1.04 it's so terrible, a big fuck you Treyarch.
RealtorMDandDC  +   1885d ago
@Sizzon...same here
I'm playin it on PS3.......I had to hard reset twice....Booooooooooo!!!!
DarthBigE  +   1885d ago
just made it worse for me, been waiting for 15 min trying to get in a game, get in lobby disconnects. Actually make it in a game, 2 min into it it migrates host, 1 min after host migration disconnects. such Bull$#*!
RealtorMDandDC  +   1885d ago
Yes totally agree....they made it worst...same here waited 5+mins to start first game and had to hard reset two I said F@(k it.....came back to work...
RealtorMDandDC  +   1885d ago
