Do you have Infinity? As I know there was a specific problem with MW3 last year for Infinity customers where the IP addy locations were out of date and not correctly showing as UK.
This is a huge dramatic change since last night. For the last couple of months, I would usually only be getting one or two foreign players (if any at all) per match. Now as of this morning, it's one or two UK players per match, with all the rest foreign.
It has the very same feeling as when the known issue was causing this problems throughout MW3s lifespan.
In other words - Devs, can you please check this? I have a feeling its the same issue again.
I'm not with BT but I get the same anyway. Thought maybe ISP and/or router influenced matchmaking but I guess not. If I'm in a lobby with predominently French players the pace of the game is slower than medium maps on BO1. Not objecting to that play style but I'll just get bored and leave.
Wonder if the Americans get near all-American lobbies.
I'm on sky BB in the uk and have had iffy matchmaking since launch but had a go now and i mostly get french dutch german austrian italian spanish and portuguese with a token japanese player for good measure with seemingly 2 or 3 uk players
I dont have dlc (probably due to the matchmaking)
Something else that's annoying is how certain game types (basically everything but TDM) seem to only have two lobbies that I can connect to.. Last night I literally played the same game with the same people over and over even if I left the lobby and rejoined multiple times.. If I leave a lobby why would you reconnect me to it? And if I'm playing a game I decide to quit out of why are you going to force me back into the same game twice in a row? Please for the love of god, I don't want to play TDM all day but if I want randoms over and over instead of the same people over and over I'm forced to play it..
fellow BT infinity user .
few points you must be aware of for good gaming .
1 . play outsdie the p2p restrictions is what i have been doing .
2. keep track of your ping rate .
3. maintain your overworked homehub 3 . ( clearing ALL stored settings via the reset button holding it down for 20 seconds until the powerlight flashes once )
this cleans all the ports , ip addresses . this router suffers after about 2 days worth of gaming doing this restores its full power and allows traffic to flow better .
Hot news just found out BT have lifted p2p restrictions on certain packages at peek periods as of 01 feb 2013 this will as BT would put it, take time for your line to settle for the changes to occure .
this would answer the question i feel as i have noticed the past few days myself .
ps could not post the link to the bt site but search : bt broadband usage policy on their site and see the info there .
hope that helps a bit ...
