Black Ops II Technical Support

I'm not  Flava Sprinkles OR an Customer Support Agent, but i still would like to point a few things out.

Black Ops 2 uses a P2P (peer 2 peer) connection type this means that if your a "host" you are "hosting" your own server. This can't be changed, however tweeks like what you describe can, and do happen from time to time.

Battlefield 3 uses Dedicated Servers. These cost a bit of money to buy, run, and maintain. This is why Treyarch most likely uses P2P servers.

P2P servers, in theory, can be as good as dedicated servers. This is only possible if a host has a connection and system performance that matches a server.

and I'll point out a few things to you.

Black Ops 2 worked fine, now it doesn't for several people. Even though Black Ops 1 still works perfectly fine.

Battlefield worked fine, Battlefield continues to work fine.

Customers don't care about your explanation, customers care about things working and not suddenly not working.

I much prefer CoD to Battlefield, but I'll take the game that actually continues to work for me thanks.

I gotta ask, how do you think your playing on a global scale in Call Of Duty?

I'm not sure as to what "consumer" your reffering too, i'm a consumer and like listening to the developers talk about things to save their own rear ends.

as i have already said/hinted...

Black Ops 2 has always had lag/connection problems. Its safe to assume that Treyarch is tweeking the system with each update without mentioning it.

Battlefield uses dedicated servers in which is connected on a global scale. Call of Duty's P2P connection can't do that.

It's not my problem if the game doesn't work, I do not work for Treyarch/Activision, nor do i care if you like Battlefield more. I'm just trying to help.
