If like me and my mates you are sick of the LAG on Call Of Duty MW2 please sign this petition at below web address.http://www.petitiononline.com/MW2lag/
Following the release of CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE 2, it has become blindingly apparent that Infinity Ward have FAILED to address the needs of the international community in that the online multiplayer component fails to provide an effective matchmaking system for Xbox 360 gamers.
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.
