Also, Treyarch really messed up by not allowing the players to lobby together after the game. Just like in MOH:AIrborne. Thank goodness i have all but one MP achievement left on that game.

Very frustrating to even get a match started, especially when you cannot stay in the lobby like in COD2, ETc.
You can't send game invites to Ranked games. The idea is to be playing games against people based on similar abilities, not on being able to invite your friends and artificially boost your rank (not that there aren't ways around THAT).

The way this is typically done is to get all your friends into a PLAYER match first, then then once that match is over, all of you hit the Ranked Match lobbies at the same time, increasing your chances of being able to play with the people you want to play with.

Thanks ICEMAN. And to the other guy who asked how hard are these achievements? They are not hard as they are based mainly on winning a match as a team, getting 10 revives without a team kill and ammo supply.the rest are predicated on points. Very doable.....IF you have the people on ranked matches.....BUT.....they are very time consuming....as in.........at the rate I am going just starting the MP online.....it may take me 5 months to get general.......maybe longer. We will see. Just an estimation by me. I could be wrong.

If you guys are up for just playing as well, I may bump into you, CoD 3 is such a good game.
I just don't like boosting in it.

I'm up for this, I'll see about sending invites tomorrow to some of you guys, anyone else who I don't hit up if you're still doing this please hit me up if you see this. I'm not fantastic at the game but it's a lot of fun so for the most part it's all I've been playing 360-wise.

Hey guys. It's been a while since i posted on here mainly because of the "Great Xbox LIVE outage of 2007. I just wanted to let everyone know that I got General today after only 3 weeks of boosting. I will still be helping out once in a while. I have elected TheIcemanCometh as the new leader. Send him a message if you want to join his group. I have provided a shortcut to his profile below. http://live.xbox.com/en-US/profile/p...heIcemanCometh

We try to meet during the week starting at 5:00pm Eastern Time. What we normally do is set up a player match and see who wants to play. Those people get invited into the (private) player match. When we have eight people (works best with eight because it's the minimum number to start a match - more than that can cause issues), the leader will change the options in the player match, after which COD3 starts a 30-second countdown before the changes take effect. Once the timer counts down to 2 seconds, we all quit at the same time and go straight to searching for a Ranked Capture the Flag match. That increases the chances of (hopefully) a lot of us getting into the same lobby. There may be times when we get MOST but not ALL of the players in. Don't be too disappointed when that happens to you - it's happened to everyone at least once.

On weekends (Friday and Saturday nights), I normally can't start until 10pm, as I get my kids on weekends and that's when they go go bed. On Sundays, I can start around 7pm. That's not to say that you guys can't go on specifically without me, Raptor, or any other "designated leader." Once you've done it a few times, you know what to do.

One other thing I'd like to add is that we need to be VERY careful about how we conduct ourselves during these matches. While we usually try to ask the "random" people that get matched up with us if they want to play a "points match" not everyone will want to, and when the game starts, some people will even try their d*mndest to actively disrupt what we're trying to do. Normally, we've been making them a "non-preferred" player in the feedback system so hopefully XBL won't match them up with us. However, after the issues of XBL the last 10 days or so, I have heard that they are going to be a little more active in looking for people doing just this sort of thing (boosting). We need to be a little more courteous when we come across the "undesirables" as far as boosting goes so we don't draw attention to ourselves - just ignore them, and try to finish out the match as normal and move on to the next one.

EDIT: I am sick today, so I won't be playing any matches tonight.

I have school until 5:30 EST during the week. So does that mean I miss out on it? Weekends, however, I'm fine though.

No. Don't panic.

There will be plenty of time for matches. I can normally play NLT 11pm during the week, so anytime anyone can get on and try and play, just check your Friends list to see if anyone else is playing and try and join in.

One other thing to keep in mind here. Pease dont take this the wrong way, but I'm not here (nor was Raptor) to be anyone's mother in all this. Once we get our points, we'll hang around for a few days or so to help others "behind" us get theirs as a way to say thanks for helping us get ours. We try not to abandon people, certainly, but we also won't be around to do this with and for everyone until they get everything they need - we have other games we'd like to play.

Raptor has his, now he's passing it off to me. When I'm done, someone else will take over, etc.

No, no it's cool. As long as someone else is there to willingly lead and to do a good job at it, it's fine.

Hey guys,

Sorry I've been MIA for the last few weeks. Holidays and whatnot. I should be back by next week and ready to rejoin the boosting team.

P.S. Jeff, hope you had a good new year bud.

Man, this kinda sucks. Everyone boosting is either Corporal or Major. I'm only a Captain with only 3,000 points until I'm a Major. Everyone is going to be done boosting and the online is totally going to be dead when I'm going to have like 25,000 points, and I'll never get my General. I really hope the online doesn't die until at least another couple months or so.
