And then when I do, the first 5-10 games I find are laggy. I'm rubber banding all over the place. Eventually it evens out and I get a few kills, but then I get disconnected and I'm staring at the main menu.

I'm sorry you have the patience of a saint, but requiring me to have that kind of game play and not be upset about it is pretty darn ridiculous.

I've seen people who have NEVER been able to get multiplayer to work since the day the game launched. You're telling me you wouldn't be whining if you couldn't even get the multiplayer game to load after you just dropped $60.00 on it?

Yeah. That's what I thought.
I didn't say my experience equaled that of everyone else. I've had issues too. I just don't cry about it like a little bitch because I have a life outside this game and I know it will be sorted soon.

Yeah. That's what I thought.

It might be worth noting that I too have a life outside of this game. I work my 40+ hours, play soccer in 3 different leagues, and take care of my grandmother who has Alzheimer's. That being said, I have very limited time in which I can actually sit down to play games and when I do, I expect shit to work properly. It simply isn't fun dealing with server related BS for an hour and then having to shut your console down because your free time is up. If this was an isolated incident with EA then fine, but this shit happens with EVERY EA game server and it's not confined to launch day, week or even month. I still have constant issues when attempting to play BFBC2 and BF1943, the latter of which is arguably one of the finest games every developed.

That thing for you to do when shit like this happens is called the "campaign."

I look at this as the best possible advertisement for MW3. Hey, have you played BF3? Were you disappointed in their shitty servers, their inability to let you play with your friends, pointlessly huge maps, super-short campaign, and stupid blurry effects to show off a game engine? Not to mention shitty air vehicle combat. Then do we have the game for you! We here at Activision-Blizzard & Infinity Ward make a game that actually, you know, works. It may be glitchy, and full of campers, but you'll be able to play it for shit's sake. It also may be "graphically inferior" but I'll take a game that I can play over a texture install pack any day.

I'm sorry, but a game should be fully playable at launch. BF3 should be an improvement over BFBC2. It isn't, and all of this after having a public beta! Shit, at least I could fly and get kills in BFBC2! If it weren't for the completionist in me I'd be trading this in toward MW3.

Contrary to popular belief, I'm not pissed. Trust me, you'd know if I was pissed.

My first post was the first I've made on the subject and I was not whining about the game. I was commenting about YOUR response to other people. Your flippant answer to someone's else's agony really makes you look like a complete asshole. Turns out, I wasn't too far off base.

And oh rest assured that I, too, have a life. I am a probation officer and work 60-80 hour work weeks. While I do agree with the bitch comment you made, because indeed I am one as I get paid for it, I still have to insist that when I buy something, it should actually work as advertised. When I finally get home from work and sit on the couch to blow something up, frankly it's quite annoying to not even be able to log in.

One reason why MW3 will get a perfect 10, the server's never go down.

Its not necessarily the servers themselves but how efficient the programing code for running all the shit that going on is. They just need to optimize the code or fix whatver the hell it is. But Im with you all, this is pissing me off!!! I rented the game and bought the 10 dollar MP pass and I cant even play MP. Lame. me:EA:

My friend and I have been trying for over an hour. We can't get into a multiplayer game. We've been able to play 2 co-op missions. The thing that really sucks is that the co-op missions require you to have a connection to the EA servers, to which we can't connect right now, so we can't even freakin play co-op.

(And we're already done with campaign. Twice each.)

I can't believe how many people said they would've gladly paid $60 if BF3 was just multiplayer only. For a game that had its roots as a multiplayer only game, they sure are F-ing up big time.

Not being a fanboy or flaming, but my excitement level for MW3 just rose tenfold. Just saying.

I'm sorry to say this, but if you still have issues with BFBC2 or BF1943, then it has to be on your end. Probably about half of the people on my friend list, which is close to the full 100, play those games and never have issues. We all had issues with BFBC2 at launch, just like we are all having issues with BF3. After a week or so the BFBC2 issues were sorted and there was maybe 1 or 2 days since that the game didn't work. I expect BF3 will be the same.

I'm not being flippant, I'm telling people to calm down and get a fucking life. This shit will be sorted out in a matter of days. Its meant as friendly advice since some people seem to be having panic attacks over this shit.

But tell me I'm an asshole. It cracks me up, especially with the whole tough guy comment about how "I'd know if you were mad". LMAO

Yeah. That's what I thought.

Thanks Europe, you just had to all log in at the same time to cause the server crash in the US.

No, you just get a host migration interruption every 3rd game, which will boot you out half the time and choose the worst possible host the other half.

And unlike the server issues with BF3, the lame-ass P2P connection for MW3 will never improve.

Its been fine all Friday evening. If its working on Friday at 8pm eastern time, its working.

Tip: If you can't get into a server using quick match, do a search and look for a low population server and join that.

Listen to this man, given it's what I've been doing and I can safely say (for now) that the issues I fear would happen have been non-existent. Also 9/10 I've been able to get myself and my squad of 3 mates into the same team/squad when they join too.

Solution:
1. Get a Twitter
2. Follow @Battlefield
3. Know when they are doing server maintenance.
4.Quit bitching its the first week there is always problems
5. ?????
6. Profit.

There you have it. A foolproof solution. Now shut up. Nowhere does it say in the agreement that the servers are 24/7.

It will get a 10 (not a perfect 10 as it is as far as possible from perfect) because
almost every reviewer is a CoD dick rider. and they don't use servers. It's all P2P which uses up more bandwidth, more issues, and easier to hack the game. So have fun with that shit tier game. Me and other from this forum will be having fun flying gets and blowing up building.

For the last two days I havent been able to play more than one round in a row without being kicked off and having to reconnect after. Plus I'd say about 30% of games I do get into disconnect in the middle of a round, losing all stats, unlocks, etc. It's been a week since the game came out, and still such a mess with servers. EA blows. I've played MP games (like Halo) for years and never encountered bad connection to this extent. But whenever its an EA game (like NHL 10, BFBC 2 or anything else), the servers suck dickhole
