When I party up, I tend to party with people in the same region as me with a few exceptions. I live in the Southeastern US and almost my entire clan is from the same region. When I play with them, it is hit or miss. Things are a little better when I play solo as I seem to get thrown into lobbies with mostly people from my State. For those wondering how I know that, I am from Georgia, and the majority of the people I end up playing against when Solo have Atlanta Falcons or Georgia Bulldogs emblems or clan tags. When I get in those lobbies, things run smooth as can be and I usually do well, but when I get thrown into lobbies hosted in Cuba or Mexico, I am just plain screwed and that happens more than one could think possible.
