On Wario, only when he pulls host :)

I don't dislike this game. I'm just uninspired by it.

I think that if your little chap hasn't moved for 30 seconds then it should auto walk forwards until you next spawn.

I thought I'd try out the akimbo FMG 9's.........they make me feel dirty. They are so op'd it's laughable. I now see why so many people use them. You just point them roughly in the direction of the enemy, hold it down and within 0.5 seconds they are dead.

I don't claim to have a clue about the technology behind the multiplayer element of the CoD series but can someone explain why I'm always matched up with people of a much higher level in MW3?

I'm not a CoD noob, though I'm far from brilliant, but having enjoyed MW2 and the relatively 'fair' match making that enabled me to get to Prestige Lv1 with some enjoyment, I'm finding the same 'run-in' period (I've only had the game a couple of weeks and get limited game time) much more of a chore as I'm continually pitted up against players with superior classes...and to be fair to them, talent!

Maybe I'm just a bitch, but I would find it more enticing if I felt I would matched up against players of an equal (ish) standing.

Wario is sorely missed here... we would have already been working on Moaning Thread 3 if he were here.

@ Simone: Matchmaking works off ping, not level or skill unfortunately. If it was based on skill and level then everyone would have a 1kd.

Thanks for the response. I don't have a great bb connection (3mb at best) as I live in the sticks.

So when you say based on ping do you mean I'm only connecting to those in relative close proximity?

Also, would that explain why I fail to get kills even though it seems to me that I've taken someone clean out?

I never noticed this in MW2 though I lived in a different house, with a different ISP back then, albeit the same village.

Theoretically, yes to close proximity (but doesn't always happen)... try to get games where it says <50ms... if it gets any higher than <75 back out and try again.

And yes, lag's a bitch.

Cheers for the advice mate

Was host tonight on a few groundwar games with some of the A2A chaps and i couldn't hit a barn door, doesn't help when most of the opposition are frogs and spaniards with crap connections.

Not sure how but over the last few days my gaming has turned into utter ****. Doing proper crap now, negative in every game.

Not quite sure why.. I havent changed anything.

Just joined a random TDM, our score was 700 the enemies 6800. What the actual ****?

As I joined, a Pave low and Strafe were called in.

Then found someone on the other team 22 - 0.. and a guy on our team 0 - 14. ******s.

To be fair, the Frogs and Spaniards probably have much better connections than we do!

Not so sure on the Spanish, how do you come to this conclusion?

Because generally, we're behind on infrastructural developments like high speed internet, train networks, motorways etc... compared to other major European countries.

Of course we have areas where all is rosy, but we have huge areas that are sadly lacking.

Shouldn't be the case but I'm pretty sure that's the case.

Did a little checking to satisfy my curiosity...

Uk average DL speed 589 KBPS
Spain " " " 394 KBPS

Source http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/09/21/pando-media-trumpets-global-download-data/


Spain’s Internet usage has climbed dramatically in recent years. As of January 2007, Spain had over 19,204,000 Internet users, almost 43% of the population (source). As for broadband (cable and ADSL Internet), this is still somewhat lower than the overall EU market average penetration

It's all the Spaniards fault :smashin:

It shouldn't be the case but unfortunately reality is that the infrastructure needs to be paid for and therefore it needs to be cost effective for the companies installing the infrastucture (Where its not publically funded)

Im willing to bet that the countries you are reffering to have equally as bad problems in rural areas.

The other thing to note with the internet is that alot of the countries that have super-fast internet are relatively newly developed countries (Korea etc)

bloody hell, I didn't expect the Spanish inquisition.......
Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition! :D


On-topic - the connection in this game is un****ing believeble at times, shooting someone and taking half a clip to kill them, seeing someone and apparantly putting a lot of bullets into them but seemingly according to the killcam never even firing a shot, or my favourite... getting killed by what seems to be 1-2 bullets, instadeath (and I mean even quicker than normal for MW3) :suicide::suicide:

If you're on a 3-bar connection in this game, forget it. It's not gonna end well. :mad:
