"need more players to balance teams"

what even is this? I'm in a free for all, all 8 spots filled, yet it makes us sit here for 5 minutes, LOL?

    I had the same issue intermittently a few times last night, but backing out of the lobby and reconnecting seemed to get rid of it.

    would love to get on and play..... but BO2 keeps shutting down my PS3...

    Same issue; We'll be in a 12 player Team Deathmatch and we'll have to wait for more players to balance the team. Backing up and going back in mostly connects me to the same broken lobby, so I end up having to choose another gamestyle to be actually able to play again.

    It happens in almost every lobby i get in.  Not sure what the problem is.  Also, I have to back out and come back in to get it t work.

      Happens in every single lobby.  I have been trying to play in a party of 3-6 all day and only have a couple of games in.  I went into bootcamp and it still happens playing solo.  The lobby is full, but it refuses to start the game.  Whenever a game did start we were thrown into a game that was 0 to 0 or it just started.

    Hi,

     

    I'm experiencing the same issue... With the lobby full, the teams are split and the notification shows that the game is about to start. Matchmaking screen then remixes the teams without anybody having left the game. I find this situation most prevalent in TDM.

    I cannot play team deathmatch. I get to a lobby and it keeps needing more players to balance teams. I can play domination and nuketown ok, but team deathmatch no.

    Exactly the same thing with me in TDM. Lobby is full with 12 people, but it just cant seem to match the teams and get a game going. Lets hope it gets fixed so we can all just play online and enjoy it!

    Sometime it take a long time before a game begin
