Sir Simon Mally's Gamercard
Multiplayer host advantage / multiplayer gripes

It may be my imagination, but there seems to be a general consensus amongst people I've played with that there seemed to be a distinct host advantage meaning one player in every game seems to have double the number of kills of everyone else.

I also find it frustrating that although you rank up in the game there are no unlocks / specific benefits to be gained apart from being shoved in with higher ranked players.

I've done all the specific kills achievements but still need to get top scorer which keeps managing to evade me and it is becoming a bit of a slog having to play 100 public matches of execution.

Why when you play second as attackers, with other side not triggering any beacons, your team gets a beacon, surely the game should end as technically your side has won. Same if you go first at attacking and fail to trigger beacons, and the other side gets one, let the bloody game end rather than dragging out the misery.

Ps Found the single player campaign to be great fun.

Agreed. After finally getting my 25 wins in CvS, I have to tell you that if you get into a room with a ping superior to 31, it will be extremely difficult to rack up kills and wins. ONce I found that out and only played games where my ping was around 20, I started winning and getting on average 25 kills to 4 deaths.

Try that out and hopefully it works for you. Good luck

Similar to Gears of War, the host does have a very distinct advantage. Being the host and being talented at getting kills will round you off with the most kills in mostly every game you play. However, it's not always true, I've had the most amount of kills a few times without being host, but having a low ping is fairly helpful.

I totally agree OP that the game should end if a team gets shut-out then the other team gets a beacon.

The 100 games thing is a real slog, I think I have 96 so far and will be very glad to not have to play the online anymore.

Another advantage: You won't be kicked for "idling". I've had at least 10 Extermination matches that didn't count after being kicked for idling near the last few seconds of the 2nd round.
