no problems today so far other than the usual where people bail and it doesn't refill.

that and my strela that decided to do a scenic route to a huey.  video for that rendering now.

In the meantime, enjoy my 'yes! got a blackbird!  oh crap, only 4 bullets left...' moment

Just finished the single player. Fun ride. Cool end.

I played some single player zombies. Is there no MP zombies like WaR? That seems silly if not.

Been playing MP. Almost to 20. I still die more than I kill usually. I die and have no idea who or where they got me from. I guess being a noob my equipment is all lame compared to theirs.

Looks like they really updated the contracts quite a bit - lots of new ones that should mix things up a bit.

Haven't tried any of the care package stuff yet.

Every thread I see regarding the PS3 patch acts like connection problems are even worse...

I am hoping it is just "the disgrunteled rage message board syndrome" and not actually worse...

Played for a number of hours last night while I probably should have been studying.  Knifing doesn't seem to have changed, matchmaking still seems to be broken, connections seemed even worse (more than just a handful playing with one or two bars), and the disconnect between what is seen/experienced on your own screen versus the killcam replay is just as frustrating. 

It was still fun to play with friends, however the low point of the night was being convinced to play Domination for the first time.  Apparently we made the mistake of trying to actually play the game as it was intended, because no one else played that way.  One player had 51 kills, 5 deaths, and neither captured nor defended a single location.  Another had over 40 kills and just 4 deaths.  That player also had no captures or defenses.  While you earn more points going after locations, no one seemed to care.  disgust  The match was so bad that it probably spoiled any chances of me giving that play mode a chance again.  It was ridiculous. 

I still despise being hip-shot by sniper rifles and being stabbed from a distance despite scoring bullet hits that have no effect on recoil or slowing the attacker down.  Yet I'll continue to play.  Especially since I'm making my way to prestige #2.  15 or so more levels to go.

I'll be offline after Friday night until the evening of the 27th at the earliest.  This layoff will be the touchstone of the game for me.  Either I'll be refreshed and come back to the game with renewed spirit, or it will just hammer home even more frustrations and I'll trade the damned thing in.

I didn't notice any change with the knifing distance.

Connections are definitely worse then they were before. The disconnect between your screen and the actual game is growing. I had a match last night where I went 0 - 9. I'm sorry, but unless I'm playing the top 5% of the players in this game that simply doesn't happen. I'd like to think I could probably manage a luck kill.

5 straight matches of 2 - 3 bar connections and I just gave up. Ordered assassins creed today, when that arrives I'll be taking a break from this.

Is whomever hosting your party not looking for local matches first?  My brother was searching for games last night, and as soon as he switched his search parameters to local (not local only), things quickly improved.

Also, this.

You might have just had a bad batch of players on Domination, Pete. I know that in MW2, Domination was just broken since there were almost no players who seemed to play the match as intended. However, I've really had a lot of fun in Domination on Black Ops, and the majority of the time I seem to be in matches where both teams are actually focused on taking and keeping the capture points, rather than treating it as a non-kill-capped deathmatch.

I think the local thing would be pretty irrelevant when you're in a big party. I know Lettuce is down south, I'm midwest US, Macker is Canada... we're pretty spread out. I guess it'd depend how they define "local". Maybe that means North America only?  icon_eek

It's worth a shot, I'll try it tonight.

On the PS3... connections still sucked, probably worse then before the patch.  My buddies noticed the same.
  Seemed to take more time to get in a game.   Sometimes 10-15 minutes to get into a team death match...

I didnt notice any other differences...


And yea, I like dominion and headquarters...   But, most folks seem to just go for kills, getting super high amounts from people "taking risk" and running in to capture the shit.   I dont really know why they play it like that, maybe its a epeen thing...

But, patch pretty much sucked...

You are not alone.  We have had it bad on ps3 since black ops launched.  Patch 1.03 made something bad worse.  I have not even tried since 1.04.  Too discouraged.  As much as I love the CoD series (bought mw1, w@w, mw2, black ops and all map packs), I'm at the point where I may not buy another one unless they run a beta to iron this garbage out before release.  I swallowed the hook, thought treyarch was going to step up to the plate with IW gone.  Wishful thinking.  Though about buying it for th xbox or pc, but why reward them with another sale? 
Consider this: guerilla is running a beta for Killzone 3.  They're a Sony first party developing a system exclusive and they are beta testing online multiplayer.  Activision/treyarch were so arrogant to not feel the need to test the xbox port they delivered to ps3 gamers.

Ego, Roman, Tuck, Kato and I ripped fools to shreads last night.

For the most part, we had pretty good connections, though there was quite a bit of lobby jumping.  We played Firing Range about 8 out of 11 matches.  Fun map, but that's just too much.

Filling rooms is still broken and we had some long slow rooms of 4 on 3 or 5 on 2.  Not sure what the issues could possibly be after this many years.

Had what could have been my best night ever...I moved my kd up .03 in one sitting which is totally unprecedented for me this far into the play cycle.

Pretty sure this is my favorite COD game now.  W@W is till close behind, but the gap is getting bigger.

something is still very wrong with the host selection process.  Pete's had a questionable connection for a while now and it picked him to be host today.  yellow for pretty much everyone but him.  Just seems absurd. 

Also played against a guy using a modded controller on M14 and Fal.  He was shredding everyone.  I'll post the vid when I get a chance.  Was ridiculous.

I think they just lied to us. There isn't any "host optimization". The just pick a random person and run with it.

Was the M14 and FAL person hip firing? When I have seen guys using modded controllers with it, they were hip firing. The hit boxes for those two weapons when hip firing are retarded large.

At least we can't blame killing the entire opposing team with one napalm strike on my connection.   icon_wink

I tried editing the video and the system is far from intuitive.   disgust  I wanted to show the destruction from various perspectives but it seems to only allow me to record from one perspective.  I don't want to put it together in three different movies, just one.  And I haven't been patient enough to take a break from shooteyface to put my Jerry Bruckheimer stamp on it yet.

Friday night ended on a high note for us too.  Getting close to 1 am and everyone decides to pack it up after just one more match, and who pops into our room but 3 sets of split-screeners.  2 pair were lvl 20s and one set of split-screeners were a certified BLOPS virgins.  Well none of us could quite get up the nerve to walk away from that kind of good fortune so we trounced on em for another 30minutes.  That may not sound like a long time but when the score is routinely 7500-1800 a TDM match takes only a couple minutes.  Only problems we ran into was having to call in killstreaks quick and getting killed by recklessly running to get to the fodder before your trigger happy friends got there.  I think the one player went 0-9 more than once and after half a dozen matches the lvl 1s only managed to get to lvl 4 and 5.  I wouldn't have stayed in the room with us but I sure appreciate that they did.
