    Hosting the game

      Is there a way to opt out of having to host a game as I am at the end of my tether with always being the host! The game is completely unplayable when you or one of your team is host! I may as well sit in the middle of an open space with a neon sign above my head stating "FREE KILLS HERE!" can I somehome stop this happening??

              Either stream some video on a PC while playing, or force change your NAT to 3 (strict). Though this may cause other problems, like being able to play with friends, you won't pull host.

                  I'm not liking the idea opf having a strict nat as I run a clan. I have tried streaming videos but as I have a massive band width this doesn't seem to make any difference....

                    Play Hardcore instead when your connection is duff. You only need to land one bullet.

                        you still have to not be behind lol.

                         

                        hardcore can work when its medium to long range.

                         

                        close range or when you just turned a corner you are still screwed lol.

                        and no kill cam to confirm that you are laggign behind.

                         

                        in fact hardcore might have you rage less as long as you avoid close range battles.

                            Yip, ditch the smg and get a rifle. HC is where the campers hid when they coudn't hide in core. Then the runners and gunners found them in these playlists. Now I have equally as much fun running and gunning or switching to range shooting all the running and gunning cannon fodder. There's something for everyone. But tell anyone, it's our little secret

                          I played a game yesterday it was like someone was pressing 'pause' throughout the game, everytime I aimed they jumped across screen, impossible I left and guess what 'host migration'.

                           

                          Sorry I don't know the answer but if you find out let me know!

                            I have throttled my upload using my routers QOS settings to 500kbs meaning 95% I am not host.

                             

                            I had to purchase this router separately as my ISP's router did not have QOS in the settings.

                             

                            Also rather than download something to throttle your bandwidth upload something instead.
