    nice to see the cod forum swat team arrived to shut down any discussion of fault finding, ive seen some of your posts on other threads seems all you do is tell people there wrong. why on earth would you think microsoft upgrade servers just for better performance when no one complains about it? im fully aware that u feel that u were a big part of fixing MW3 but u no what it was proberly the player count going down that eased the problems. what makes u an expert on how xbox live works? serously!

    I get the same problem everyday.  I am forced to play late at night when there are a few people online.  If I try to play during peak hours it takes me about 8-10 shots to bring someone down at mid-range.  Most times when I get killed and watch the cam I don't even get my gun up, but on my screen I fired off 5 or 6 shots.  It is simply ridiculous that connection is deciding the outcome of gunfights.

    From what I understand microsofts servers are used only for the matchmaking as this was what ghandi said about MW3. Whether they have any influence on the matchmaking results I don't know for sure and I hope that's 100% controlled by 3arc/activision.

     

    The elite server(s) should be controlled by 3arc/activision. The game does push some sort of updates to the elite server(s) during a match and more at the end of a match. Whether this is done only from the host or the client and host I don't know for sure. I think it was if you rank up but it could be other stuff too and I can't remember for sure.

     

    So for matchmaking microsoft servers have influence and for stats etc elite server(s) have influence. I'd be more inclined to say it's the game code and matchmaking combined that causes problems primarily but it's better not to rule anything out like the servers.

    Maybe he has about 20 years experience in telling them HOW to run their servers.

     

    All he is doing is letting people know the game doesnt run on servers. Thats all. Dont get your panties in a bunch.

     

    Now you know how it works you can then figure out what the REAL problem is.

    During peak time you got every little snot nosed kid connected to the game .

     

    Problem is that these kids are using the 3G and 4G thumbsticks to run the games as well as quite possibly downloading porn or torrents.

     

    I believe THAT is why during peak times are the worst.

     

    Of course that also includes the over abundance of traffic you would normally have to expect on the information superhighway.

     

    BTW Microsofts Matchmaking Servers handle hundreds of different games so why would you think they are swamped to handle just this game ?

    Where am I "shutting down anything"? Sorry but you posted a theory which is completely wrong.  We have enough misinformation on these forums already without people adding more theories they came up with.

    If you dont like being corrected check your facts before posting.

    Firstly all hardware gets upgraded thats a fact. As capacity increases servers are upgraded to handle this., also server blades being basically mini pcs like all pcs get hot and slow down another reason why they get replaced. The reason noone complains about xbl performance is because they constantluy upgrade and improve their infrastructure.

    your premise was the games run off xbl servers and they are 10 yrs old which again sorry to tell you this was incorrect. Ss78_ has basically explained xbl's role in cod so theres no real point covering that.

    Not that that has any revelance to this discussion other than you are trying to score a point , I am sure many people would disagree mw3 was "fixed" if you are refering to the change made to matchmaking that improved the game for alot of people then yes thats actually a matter of public record I advocated the change, and myself and capp00 were named by one of the devs as people who had fought for the change . I will add I wasnt the only person and most of the changes made to mw3 were because of a great bunch of people who frequented and added input to the hotfix thread over the year.  Which brings me too

    I'm not sure if the seriously! is a question or some sort of exclaimation made in a sarcastic slant but anyways either way, the reason is not far off what starbuck said but grrr SB i'm not THAT old , and again something most long time forum users are aware of . I worked in the games industry ( writing netcode being one aspect ) a couple of the projects i was involved in used xbl although i will add my main platform was pc  . Nowadays although out of the games industry per se i still in my current role have alot of dealings with stuff related to online gaming so yes I am very familar in how it operates thank you very muchly. Its one of the reasons I can come on here and point out and explain why someone is wrong

    treyarch just don't respond to anything to do with the lag and the game is 10x worse for me at peak times,

     

     

    Again if you expereince worse gaming during peak times then the most likely cause is in fact your own connection /isp and not the game. You're slightly blinkered by this due to your wrong assumption the game is run off xbl servers.

    On behalf of maccabi ... no  ... and  ... no.

     

    The problem with all these "lag comp" and "server" posts? You can go back several years on the forums and see people making the same claims over and over and over again.

     

    It gets a little annoying after a while. Do some actual research instead of listening to every rumor you hear from 15 y.o.'s in lobbies while playing the game.
