US Data Center For NAT Server:
Will make all US players connect to US data center and EU users connect to EU data center. This will optimize performance for all users in those areas.
Fixed 'Downloading Game Settings' Error:
Fixed error with conflicting packet interaction.
Port 3095 Issue Corrected:
Players were required to have port 3095 open in order to host. Now players who have port 3095 blocked can still host matches.
Server search will end upon acquiring a certain number of good servers. Added "prefer" servers with best ping, this will optimize and expedite players finding and joining good matches.
I'm not quite sure exactly how long it's been since you guys got the patch, but there hasn't even been a hint of when PAL owners of CoD4 will be able to download the patch.
I'm getting pretty annoyed having to wait up to 15 mins to play a game, only for it to say "lobby closed" when it does find a game and it's about o begin or for the game to spaz out just as the countdown timer has finished and going straight to the end of round screen."
