Patch 1.06 introduced a feature where you are not matched with people outside your continent unless you choose Any-search preference. This might be the reason, i guess there are not that many people playing near you so try to change your search preference by pressing square before you choose the game type in MP.
I had a couple of bad games last night but for the most part I did quite well. So I'd say that it's definitely no worse and likely better for me. But it's only been one night and generally after the patch has time to get around to everyone, things tend to change. So I'll reserve my finally judgement until next week.
I've only played for about an hour since 1.06 came out and gave up due to laggy game after laggy game can't really remember if it was always like this (been over 3 weeks since I played this game for over an hour) so I can't really say if 1.06 has made things better or worse.
same old same old for me, ghosts appearing from knowhere, apparantley i cant see someone standing 5 foot to the right of me, happened all to often again last night, so no different same bull, guess this is another cod i can write off as horrible to play i expect this is as good as it gets, further cements my commitment to not buying dlc.
It depended on the lobby for me. FIrst game after, I got killed pretty fast no big deal, next death I shot first, so I watched the kill cam. Didn't even show me shooting, quit. Next lobby, obvious advantage for a hour. Top of TDM leaderboard every match, watch three guys all shooting at me, and yet I killed all three. Come on that's impossible. After about 6 games it showed host migration, and went back to not showing me shooting. Quit after that game for the night.
I wouldn't say unplayable but certainly no better than before... See someone head glitching and get 5-10 hitmarkers and get insta-killed... Should of been my kill as it shouldn't take half a clip of bullets to take someone's head off. Still having lag in Core matches, so yeah, no better or worse for me.
Not unplayable..... I did have one hard freeze trying to join a game on team deathmatch today. Haven't had that in a while. Not awaiting textures, just as soon as it started loading a game it froze.
The only thing I keep getting annoyed by is I have my search prefrence set to best, So I'll get in a game and have a good connection. Host migration, now I can't get a hit marker to save my life. I go from having a 3 + ratio in one game to .20 in the next due to change of hosts. Minor gripe, overall it's good. Want DLC on ps3 NOW!
for me the game has done a 180 so far. i played for 3 hours tonight with little to no lag at all. i had good games, some not so good, but a lot of the bs i was seeing before was gone for the most part. hopefully it can continue into next week.
hc is worse with lag, lots of people seeing me before I see them, geting killed before his muzzle even flashes is all ways fun to watch in theater, but its play able just have to camp or run a smg with quick draw and spray. I notice alot of people I kill still run a few feet after I shot them then they just drop lol.
Core everyone is now a bullet sponge just turned it off cause someone took 8 hit markers from the mtar at 10 feet and instant killed me with a vector. I won't play core till the next hot fix or patch I guess, don't know how but this patch made lag real noticable.
Yes I do, because I CAN'T PLAY!!
I don't know why, but today I got a message saying "Your classes had been reseted", now I have a lot of visit cards and kills (which I haven't done) and when I try to re-edit my classes that were emptied, my PS3 gets frozen ¬¬
That really makes me sick
Thank you, I thought that I was the only one. I am on xbox but when I turned on my game it said my profile had been reset. When I. Looked at my guns they were all locked. I had no unlock tokens and 9 permenant unlock tokens. Most progress was saved but some guns are at prestige 12 and 14. In custom and local games as perk 1 I have a direct. Perk 2 a tomahawk and perk 3 a tac 45. I feel like one of their servers got struck by lightning. How the heck do you go about reporting something like this? Hello, in barracks where you customize your logo I have things I never had and it still says things like 4 out of 5 to unlock but it's already unlocked. Sorry to blab but this is crazy. I'm about to buy a new xbox and see if it isn't on my end...
It's kinda the same, a hit and miss. I have constant lag issues, sometimes manageable but often unbearable. I've been having problems since patch 1.03, nothing but instant deaths, core feels like like hc when it comes to dying.
I just turned the console off, i couldn't take it anymore. I've been getting gold on the Five-seven for several hours today, first racking up headshots and just now finishing the unlocked camo challenges. Earlier today i got into a game of TDM and went on a 20 gun killstreak using only the Five-seven without attachments. I didn't have lag advantage, it took me between 6-10 shots per kill, i just outplayed the **** out of them. Then more and more people started getting online, and the lag got out of control. In the last 5 lobbies i was in i couldn't break even or barely broke even, 15 shots on average per kill, instant deaths.
It's been like this since 1.03, lag is always there but sometimes it's just totally out of control. The game always plays better when there are less people online, dxp has been a lag fest every time. I still need 75 kills without perks and 3 double kills with Five-seven, the combat knife is still missing around 100 kills + whatever camo challenges unlock, and my assault shield is still 3 lvls away from max level but it's golden. Other than that i've done all mastery and camo challenges to every weapon in the game. I think it will be time to put the game down as soon as i'm done with the challenges i mentioned. If it stays like this, i'm not getting DLC. I've also been a prestige master for more than a month now, so there's not that much left i'd like to finish.
I know the latency issues will not be fixed, but if we could get closer to how the game performed prior to 1.03 it would nice to get the DLC and enjoy my diamond camos in new maps.
The first two days of this patch, made me want to throw my controller against the wall. I've never experienced that much lag and migrating hosts. The most frustrating matchmaking and random spawning I've seen too after this patch. I loved the game before this last patch. Now playing today after work, it actually didn't give me one migrating host, and it wasn't laggy. I couldn't believe it. Could be short lived, but two hours so far today, and i was having fun again. i'm sure it won't last though.
See if this helps found info on defraging your ps3. Seems to have worked for me. If it does let me know! http://community.callofduty.com/message/414043279#414043279
