What makes everyone so sure dedi's are the only reason for declining migrations?  Mine seemed to stop way before it was posted by anyone and dedi's were noticed.  And DriftOr may just be an engineer, but he has spent time with dev's....

I don't think anyone is absolutely positive when dedicated servers got in the mix. Correct me if i'm wrong but the only other reason for not seeing "hosts migrating" besides dedi's would be because the host isn't leaving the game and his connection remains solid or consistent.

I can only speak for myself. I realized much less host migrations and being chose as host right around the time of this patch,

Xbox Community Update (8/22/13)

and the heated discussion of this thread,

Yet another lag post. Current Discussions

and when other players were also talking dedi's like this thread.

The patch I was referring to is May 23rd. Need to scroll down from the link provided.

Sorry I can't edit my original reply. Those darn orange bars.

I know that I haven't seen a DB or migration since around the beginning of June......that is until today. I also know that I haven't been host since then....until today.

So I go from seeing migrations, DBs and me being host every single day from November till June and it suddenly vanishes for three months? I have no doubts that dedis were being used. Today even before the first migration I could tell. The smoothness of the play took a hit and the stuttering when certain players were near returned. The dedis certainly weren't perfect, but it's 10x better than the way it was and apparently is now.

another reason would be that they have a new host migration system in place what works better then the previous one

Ok. So if its not the old host migration system that we had from Nov-June, and its not dedicated servers, than the new host migrating system is hands down magical and 100 times better than the old one. For me anyway.

Nope because the day the update came out I suddenly saw DBs and host migrations going on left and right when I played that morning. The connection was also fairly miserable. The next day when I got on it all went away and I haven't seen a DB or migration since.

Your theory is busted.

and that kills my theory how? was your lag crap before the update? hell even if it was, my theory is still sound. Just because they added a new system doesnt mean it runs flawless. or that they didnt undo it for whatever reason.

A possible dual host system where when one drops out it just hops to the other and then picks a another secondary host for the next drop out.

But I thin was only a test in some area's for I still get host migrations and games ending by dashboarding.
