Infinity Ward: FIX Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer LAG!
International Console Gamers of the World
More Info at:
FourTwoZero claims "the ability to connect to BEST connection rather than first available game, aka quickest match, is already built into the matchmaking". Any console gamer living outside of the United States however, will know that this 'best available' system is ABSOLUTE RUBBISH and simply DOES NOT WORK.
In its present form the matchmaking system CONSISTENTLY results in international console gamers (UK, Australia/New Zealand, Europe, Asia) being dumped into American hosted games, the result of which is EXCESSIVE LAG. This excessive lag is prohibitive to competitive online play, and erodes the enjoyment out of playing what is an otherwise awesome game.
We, the undersigned international gaming community, demand that Infinity Ward address the needs of their international customers by implementing a REGION FILTER for the ineffectual multiplayer matchmaking system currently in place.
Such a filter is already in place and works beautifully in Call of Duty: World at War (which was produced by Treyarch, not Infinity Ward), so surely such a system could be applied to Modern Warfare 2.
