    Black Ops matchmaking rant thread

    Ok I've now sat here for half....yes half an hour waiting on joining a lobby!
    It says 216,264 players online....yet no one is joining my lobby

    I'm trying either FFA or TDM

    Anyone else experiencing the same problem ? This happens alot and I'm getting sick fed up with it

    360 or PS3? I got onto a couple of games about half an hour ago with no problems on the PS3.

    Tried rebooting the game?

    never have a problem, takes seconds

    NAT settings? (guessing strict or moderate at the very least)

    Have you tried joining or creating an online "Zombies" multiplayer game?

    BFN,

    fp.

    Black Ops is crap.

    just exit the lobby and search for a new game - you'll join a new one in a few seconds.

    Yep, if not, it's definitely an issue with their network connection somewhere along the lines. Let me see if I can find a few other posts they can cross reference....

    Yes I've came back out and tried entering a different lobby, I'll try switching the router on/off

    See if that helps

    Games getting better, I use the xbox version and only problems I get of late are connection interuption temp at the end of the game, but it still continues, they just never beta tested properly, or got morons to do it.

    Trying Free For All and Team Death Match lobby's

    I did like the MP(360) on this but sold it due to the connection problems and the hit detection is terrible.

    Hit detection has improved ten fold most of the time, but when your up agains't people fiddling around with there connection settings you do end up coming worse off.

    Saxo get yourself a ps3 you wont get a problem like that ever, the longest I have ever had to wait is 2 mins. you pay to go online should be at least better than the PS3 disappointing.

    You are joking right, PS3 version is far more buggy then the Xbox version. I have both consoles and I wouldn't buy it for the PS3 Currently, it crashes the system on a lot of PS3's there is a massive thread on the PS networks forum about peoples playstations crashing.

    I use to have the same problem, even with an open NAT it would take quite long to find games in TDM. Try Prestige TDM if you have prestiged it should find games within seconds, or go to your recently played friends list, there's always someone you can join sessions on.

    You do realise that the PS3 has had way more connection issues than the 360? (And I play it on the PS3)

    I agree boosting is a real problem , reported loads for it not that it does any good. PS3 better ? your having a laugh its common knowledge how bad it is on there.

    Agreed paddy. PS3 kept disconnecting me yesterday on MP and even on combat training kept signing me out oO

    SuperEd

    and i also get 'flickering' on the PS3 and have to reboot the game for it to stop (doesnt happen on any other game)

    Sure it wasn't just LOD issues in the game mate?

    Turning the router on and off seems to have done the trick
