Lobbies seem broken again tonight 02/15/13

Unable to get lobbies that work again tonight.  Even in lobbies where everyone appears to have 4 bars, I am either unkillable or getting oneshot from a pistol to the chest from around a corner in core.

As usual BO1 and MW3 play fine.  Maybe a hotfix tomorrow.

I see lot of lag switchers lately, as soon as they are on your screen their connection will drop to 1 bar, they kill you because you can't hit them and then their connection goes back to 4 bar.

Can the lag switchers drop everyone except them to red bar or only the player they encounter?

I am guessing if the lag switch is host, and everyone is connected to him, then the entire lobby ( including his team ) drops to red bars.  Asking to confirm.

Indeed it has been happening alot.

Yes when you encounter a lag switcher they will stay at 4 bar and the entire lobby will go to 1. If you want to be sure just go to theater and watch the scoreboard when you freeze. I had this the other night and called the guy out and he tried to say he had crappy internet but I went and watched the game and sure enough he only did it 3 or 4 times but when he did the whole lobby dropped every time. Report and move on.

Not always the case when the lobby drops from 4 bar to1, I seen that several times and there was no switch just crappy lobby...But the freezing thing yes.

I logged on here to see if anyone else was having this issue. Last night the matchmaking and lag was extrememly bad.  I notice they did a hotfix or 2 or 3 or 4 yesterday.  It seriously was super bad lag last night.

Everyone was going 1-2 bars in each lobby for a few games str8.  I have it on "best" search.  I have comcast 50dl, 10ul and a low 15-20 ping to a far distance.  This is crazy.

We all know that 3ARC is going to do nothing to fix the issues.  We know that the internet is dynamic and not all aspects can be covered for flawless gameplay.

What we don't know is why can similar online FPS games such as Halo 4 play with near perfection?  Why is it that NO ONE from ACTVI or 3ARC will come forward and admit there is an issue.

Sack up you pansies and admit you screwed up.  FIX THIS GAME.

Cos they don't know how to make the game using the engine they "inherited" since the original CoD crew were sacked and the entire studio jumped ship. It's why MW3 was made by Sledgehammer, not IW.

Yeah exactly. The original IW guys were awesome. The 3arc and new IW need a lesson.
