Good idea buddy. I will try when I get home for sure. I got a feeling that this is the issue and not necessarily the servers being overloaded. There was only 277k people on last night when mine quit working and I could jump into matches with my buddy once he was in them.
I deleted my saved data utility for BO2 and it changed nothing. Almost as most people are saying, accounts have been locked or banned for no apparent reason. One of my friends PS3 kept freezing and after multiple restarts he received a Ban warning...made no sense!
crap it was worth a shot..
BO2 is not looking at past games for playercards is it (like MW3 did)... maybe MW3 data is messing it up? I am just throwing stuff out there...
Can you think of any other differences between the accounts?
Maybe it is just a banning thing (like the probation tool is seriously messing up...)
Who knows at this point but this is a very strange phenomena
What the? My alt account works fine. My BO1 saved data is still on it and I also used the alt account last night whena friend came over.
However, and this is where maybe we have something? I do not have a custom class set up, I did not create an emblem, I did not use a clan tag, I have not changed my scorestreaks. The game also makes me do the screen settings on loading every single time. When entering MP I also get the welcome to call of duty online message although my level is still correct.
Interesting, very very interesting.
I am at work so I cannot try this... but I will when I get home.
If someone had 3 accounts it would be very interesting to see if:
On 2 alt accounts see if you can play
Setup a class on 1 of the alts and see if it starts to crash
Ensure the 3rd one (untouched) can still play
