"Local" settings for matchmaking?

Okay, I remember in Black Ops you could change your search settings with default, local only and something else.

But basically if you set it to local only, you would ONLY get matched up with people in your area.

You wouldn't risk getting set up with some host 3 states away from you.

 

I just remember always getting fed up with horrible lag, and as soon as I'd change the settings to "local only" I would ALWAYS be 4 bar with little to no lag at all. Matches were so fun.

 

Why in the world did they take that away for BO2?? I think it would help a lot. Especially with the lag issues right now.

 

Also, has anyone else gotten the message "game settings have changed" and it makes you update? What is this? Server hot fixes?
