The whole of Europe is one giant pool for matchmaking, so Russia is included.  However, the matchmaking system is completely random on the location of the players it matches up so you might  be at the COD Olympics.  You know, esports and all that.

Lol that's very true dude, it does feel a bit like the COD Olympic's at times and i'm sure it definately includes who's about and depending at what time too with the time zones when it comes to matchmaking,

It's just frustrating as if they pull host then it'll lag and probably the same for them if i do, which doesn't make for a fun game but other than that i have no prob's playing with any nationality, perhaps they should take a leaf out of BF3's search preferances where you can select the region and what maps?

Lol yeah I feel your pain ! Even in other titles it always seems the French are bullet proof for some weird reason ! And this game is even worse !

      Is there no one in the UK playing BO.2 because that's the way it feels sometimes ! French ,German ,Italian lobbies constantly !

    Wish there was a setting for English speaking lobbies only !! Lol

The game does not use region locking, so it will happen for no matter what you set your preference to does not matter.

If even you set ot best, if they set to quickest it will match you with them or them with you depending upon the host that was chosen.

You could get a good host near you but they have their set to quick, so they get matched to you.

Search preferences only control your search criteria, not who will or will not be allowed in to the lobby once your there, or who will or will not be in the lobby to begin with. it just contols what sort of host you are looking for and that is all.

I'm aware that you crazy Texans have a thick accent but you don't all speak a different language to Oklahoma now do you?  A better example would be US players being matched with Mexicans and I know all too well how 'wonderful' that is.

It would be nice to have a preference in the matchmaking where people of the same country are put into the same lobby.  This used to happen in BO1 and in MW2 I usually get all UK based players.  When the game has a delayed camera system, TTK is stupidly fast, and the matchmaking is not grouping people as well as it could, this will just mean more rage quits and threads being made on here about how atrocious lag compensation is.  Oh, and maccabi will have a mental breakdown.  I play other shooters where I get matched up with people all over Europe and it's no where near as problematic as BO2 so the game has problems there.

No it's not the samething, but nice try. Why don't you offer help rather then being so cynical? Thats what a wanna be mod would do, just sayin.
