Connectivity: Party vs. Solo

Post by brgulker on Thu Dec 03, 2009 11:11 am

I have had a working theory about CoD Multiplayer for a while now. Here it is:

When you are playing as part of a party, it's easier to find a game without lag (4-bar connectivity). In my experience, that's because someone from that party is often chosen as the host. (I'm also assuming that members of the party are geographically located in the same region, which is the case for me).

When you are playing solo, it's harder to find a 4-bar game.

My reasoning:

This is what always happens to me, almost without fail. It's hardly scientific, I know. I certainly don't have any data, nor do I have access to how their matchmaking code works. But, that is what happens to me almost every time I play.

Have other people noticed this? Or is this just some fluke thing that's happening to me?


P.S. I know it's not my connection. I consistently have between 8-16 MB downstream and 2-3 MB upstream.

P.S. part 2: I don't mean this as a complaint thread. I'm wondering if others have had similar experiences.

My match making problems only occur when I am with a party. Solo play I normally get a 4 bar connection... 3 from time to time but 4 most of it. I think the reason I get bad connection with party is because I play with folks on the west coast. They typically host and connect me up with other west coasters and I get the cross country lag.

Yea i usually have problems when im in a party. I have found that the more people in my party the harder it is to all get into a game. Some end up getting kicked or it takes forever to find a game.

Solo play i have no problems. I can get into a game within seconds.
