Little bars next to your name in matchmaking?

Post by tapinc2 on Fri Nov 27, 2009 7:07 pm

What do they mean? Sometimes I have like 4 green ones or 2 yellow ones or 1 red one. What does it mean?

It's your ping, which shows how well your current connection is at that particular moment. 4 bars of green is good while one red dot is bad.

That's your connection to the match. The more bars, the better. Here's how it works:

4 (Strong Green): Ideal connection. You should have no lag in this match type.
3 (Light Green): Near enough ideal. You should be able to play easily.
2 (Yellow): Playable, but some inconsistencies.
1 (Red): Very poor connection. You'll find yourself jumping around the map etc.

3 Bar is the most common, but you can get any of those when enjoying a Call of Duty game online. The four bars is a measure of your connection in:

Call of Duty: World at War
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Anyone else notice right after launch when searching for a match, it searched for a match ~100 ping, and now it searches for a match ~50 ping? I wonder when they actually changed that, and maybe that's the reason it takes a little longer to find a match now.

Oh really? Mine was initially at ~100, and now it always searches for ~50. I'm really curious on how the game determines on what ping it searches for when going into a match.

They mean nothing in this game compared to other games. IW added so much stuff into the game that you can be running 4 Green bars but still have lag issues. Normally its the host that causes lag based on his connection. But with MW2, an amazing host running a great connection will still lag just because of the amount of un-necessary stuff added to the game.

That's a different type of "lag" though, not associated with connectivity rather the engine and a drop in framerate.

Loads of people in Europe complain about american servers and tbh when i'm connected to an American host from here in the UK i only got 2 yellow bars, BUT i don't get any more lag than any other games and i have no problem killing people only last night i was in CTF with a lobby full of Americans and i came top of the leaderboard with 26-3-6.
All in all if IW provided dedicated servers then there would be no/very little lag issues.

Yes i agree with you but just because your not lagging doesnt mean it dnt help. When you play an american they will always be host as there broadband is superior to ours in the uk, That gives em HOST ADVANTAGE that gives em a second more reaction time. It was proven by treyarch but can find link to show you sorry.
