Next Black Ops 2 patch allows players to set the max ping for matchmaking to a server and replaces ping bars with numbers.
Next thing for them to listen to us on is either give us Rentable Ranked Servers or a Server Browser and more Hardcore Gametypes.
Nothing regarding an ETA. Would be nice to see it today but I'm not counting on it.
Definitely great news and certainly a start. As problems go, this for me is the biggest so i'm happy to see some movement even if it is only dealing with half the problem (same way as setting 'best' in your search options is useless when others then connect to the same 'EU' continent server from the US, Africa, etc, and cause it to lag like you're playing in their country). This way when I own, or get owned, I can at least get an idea of whether it's down to me being a muppet, or the game itself lagging like an old boiler.
Okay, this is of course great like and like i already posted, a " start ".
At the other side, we will wait longer for matchmaking, and still have crappy matches in the dlc gamemodes.
I know, dedicated servers make it easier to crack the game and i know for sure that this is one of the main reasons, but dedicated servers are just better
