I am just getting tired of being in a match owning the other team, pull out Chopper Gunner and dogs and as soon as I use them the game drops back to the lobby because the host dashboards... It happened about 7 times today, it seems to be getting more frequent. Honestly, they really need to fix the host migration. And have it always migrate to someone on the team currently in the lead because they are less likely to leave.



And as for the lag, I really do not notice it as much unless there are over 600k people on then it starts to really show. So I tend to try and just play late at night or real early in the morning. But I was on lastnight at peak hours with over 900k people on and it was almost unplayable, every other match we joined we were pumping tons of bullets into people, getting no hit markers and being one shot in return. At one point I came up behind a guy and put my Galil barrel into his spine pulled the trigger, got like 6 hit markers and the guy turned around and one shot me with an AUG...

amount of people online should not have to do anything with what u described! COD:BO runs on PEER2PEER! no servers involved except for matchmaking ...! so it should not matter how many people are currently online!

In COD4 and MW2 I rarely ever got lag. Even when I had 3 bar connection.



In Black Ops, is just like W@W was, lag to death, even when 4 bars, you shoot somebody they turn around and kill you, kill cam doesn't even show you shoot. Obviously its not my internet, its just that Treyarch doesn't know how to make a game without lag.

I've witnessed this before, not all the time but it does seem to happen, not sure if its connection manipulation or what it is but its wierd when you have a match where its lagging and everyone thats in the room minus a select few are lagging so bad and those select few steamroll us like were standing still... probably because to them we are!

OK, anybody who says 'get better connection' is just dumb, plain and simple. It is beyond the ability of the player to 'get better' connection because the things that make a better connection are not under the control of the player. You can switch ISP's 100's of times but it wont make a significant difference.



My upload speed is about 1.8, it cant go any higher because thats the max for my area, until BT or whoever put down better fibre optic underground cables we cant really do anything to get better connection.



The cause of the lag is treyarch matchmaking and xbox live's minumun speeds requirements that are just too low. People on dial up cant still connect to xbl



for the dumb asses who keep saying get better connection, this is what it determins your connection:



- distance from the exchange.

- your ISP max upload speed

- how much data the under ground internet cables can carry

- how many other people in ur area are using internet



all of which are not under the control of the gamer.



all these determin your connection quality...so please no more dumb ass 'gets better connection' comments.

Lag switchin is something that we'll just have to live with for now, I've had xbl for about 4-5 years and I've only come across a blatant lag switch perhaps 3 times, once on mw2 and twice on street fighter.



what xbl should have is region/city filters, so that you can play people in ur city

What pisses me off is the "lost connection to host"usualy right when the game ends. Kick everyone back to pre game lobby with no points. I have not had any trouble with lag,just these random disconnects. Its very frustrating to play a whole game and then be disconnected at the end. Is this the host quitting and it wont migrate?
