MW3 never had the issues Black Ops 2 has, so I don't see how you make and sense

MW3 connections were terrible the first couple months the game was out, horrible lag compenstation if you were the host you were screwed by terrible lag. Making it unplayable at times. Since the game has less people playing, and some improvements have been made as far as lag compenstation tweaks in patches that came out, its now more playable than Black Ops 2. MW3 had alot of connectrion issues at its prime.

imo the real lag issues began in mw2 and got worse from there. The only thing I can think of is not the people playing. But the stats that are now being recorded. In mw2 they began showing more stats to view for all players. In mw3 they began displaying even more. All that data had to be recorded and their is alot going on. The hotspots for the maps, assists, lethal kills, tactical hits, kills with specific weapons etc. I'm sure they recorded some of that in the previous w@w and cod4 but not to the extent that it is now. But who knows really. Thats just my opinion.

I had some great games in MW3 and those numbers were hitting in the millions on some weekend DBL XP nights. Those were few and far between but the average population on MW3 sat around 500k, the lag was tolerable at times and didn't do much damage to my experience

What I think is stressing the system is the location of these players. Call of Duty is becoming an international hit so more and more "outside" players are loggin in. You're seeing more people from South America, Europe, Austrailia, and Asia getting online. This number is slowly leveling off with the amount of North American players and that's why there's lag. People are match up with those who live thousands of miles aways

Everyone is leaving BO2 so if this is the problem it will only be a matter of weeks before u have problems finding full lobbies. But for me the problems all started after the patch.

Exactly, the patch(1.03) only fixed the freezes for me, the matchmaking and connectivity totally messed up after.

Yesterday's evening I did some league play, and on my experience it was less laggy than public matches.

Only the matchmaking is ran on a server, the actual games are P2P. Servers are fine, they should simply only alow players to play if they ping under like 60ms to the host. Would solve everything.

Like i said for whatever reason the games run better with less people. It has to be a congestion problem imo. Mw3 was exactly the same way when it had alot of people online but now plays almost perfect. The problem was magnified during clan ops when  the online users were at peak numbers. I specifically remember clan ops time frames to be when it was at it's worst. Something is happening on their end with the servers, the netcode or whatever it is that just cant handle the sheer volume of people. Theres no other explanation in my mind..why MW3 now magically plays like a dream because i played it right up until blops 2 came out and it was crap from day 1 until this release and the number of online users dropped off  to 120k and now its the same thing all over again.
