Black Ops showing the strain as multiplayer verges on the unplayable

AATG: "For some inexplicable reason, wager matches are consistently extremely difficult to get into with only Team Deathmatch and Domination among those modes reliably playable. Far too often parties get broken up or gamers just don't get into games at all."

There's periodic framerate drops when too much stuff happens on screen.

ipwnall2989d ago

True, and then along came a fix like the jizz from the lord almighty.

The pc version is kicking ass.

raztad2989d ago

lol. That is funny. Someone else got to fix the game for Treyarch. What is funnier is the guy just copy pasted some stuff from MW2 config files.

Treyarch = fail

Archdemon2989d ago

Freezes very frequently. But I'm playing matches with 18 ppl. Might have something to do with it.

ChineseDemocracy2989d ago

I'm having some pretty big issues (PS3)

- In matches, I'd say 1/3 games I drop

- Standard connection issues, tons of lag

- Party system invitations/joining

- Due to "lag": player vs. player interaction is really messed up, inconsistency between parties. Most likely due to lack of dedicated servers. HUGE host advantage!

JonnyBadfinger2988d ago

the only issue i am experiencing is all party members not making it into the game. usually 4 out of 6 make it and the other 2 drop.

But other than that, i cant say i have had any problems... i only search locale only and i have the fastest internet in Australia so 99% of the time i am hosting. So i have nothing else to say...

I haven't run into many problems online, and I've put around 6 hours worth of play time. On the 360 version anyway.

RedDead2990d ago

Treyarc really messed up with the other versions didn't they? It's a shame, Black ops is the best cod yet. I'v put in about 10 hpurs multi, 3 hours zombies, finished campaign on Hardcore aswell, it is the best one, this is coming from a Cod4 lover, Waw meh'er and MW2 hater

It will get better. These issues are very common in a lot of games.

The multiplayer itself is fantastic.

The PC got f*cked bad though, and I feel sorry for PC gamers. PS3 gamers are next, and of course, XBox gamers have gotten the smoothest experience.

I haven't experienced much lag at all though, I've usually had smooth sailings, but I've had my PS3 freeze at least 5 times now and it is very annoying to see them not have ironed out things like that.

Soldierone2989d ago


No...there are issues with new games, yeah, but this is not excusable and Treyarch shouldn't walk away with a slap on the wrist. They knew this game was going to be big, they should of took the extra effort to fix things like this.

With Medal of Honor every little issue people could find were a huge deal. Yet you could get into games and play lag free just fine.

I have the PS3 version, and I haven't once experienced any of the problems mentioned. Black Ops is definitely the best CoD to date. MW2 was garbage (the campaign was kind of cool though), so I'm glad Treyarch upped the ante.

My PS3 hasn't frozen once while playing this game, and I haven't had any problems at all, except maybe slight framerate drops when a lot on screen is happening.

-Alpha2989d ago


On PC, sure, it is inexcusable. But I play on PS3 and my experience has been pretty standard overall.

Keep in mind they are dealing with the biggest MP game on 3 different platforms.

JLeVRT2989d ago

I agree. CoD4 was great, [email protected] was meh. But MW2 WASNT HORRIBLE! Stop overreacting people! MW2 pissed me off alot, but it wasnt THAT bad to me at least

Chuk52989d ago

That's n4g for you. Say anything to pro-ms and disagree's are sure to follow.

kparks2989d ago (Edited 2989d ago )

u wernt even being PRO-MS u made a statement that u wernt having problems on 360 and get slammed with disagrees!! ppl need to grow the F up!! the ps3 version is a POS by the way and i gave up online till they update it. and treyarch is normally pretty good at rolling updates out so ill be in zombies till they fix it! and in the 10 things in cod post next to this one u back KZ!!!

Motorola2990d ago

AKissFromDaddy2990d ago

Treyarch makes the worst CODs.
