    Why don't we start a thread if you have experienced similar issue...
    tell us when (what time between.. w/ your time zone) you hit issue on host dropping...

    also tell us what download/upload speed being tested from your PS3 network setting...and using wired/wifi connection...

    I think Activision MUST ADDRESS this issue now or I will be reselling my copy...

    Ok, I starting mine...

    Date, time: Today, 8 pm to 10 pm PST.
    Download: 2.3Mbps
    Upload: 400k bps.
    Connection: using Wired connection.
    Issue: Being force to drop many times... only played two team deathmatch through the beginning to end; many time host drop at any time of a game (from finding, getting down to the player list, even right off the bat...)

    I haven't had nearly the same bad success/failure rate but if there's anything I'd love Activision to do it would be to set up Dedicated Servers so that you don't lose XP when you're actually kicking arse for a change and then the Host gets salty and quits out...

    that right there is bush league.

    I'm testing 9-12 MB/s on my PS3 and I get dropped, but I'm getting dropped on both systems, again, except for coop. That works just fine. Who knows what causes it, but it's bloody annoying, because I play Red Dead with 8 friends for 4 hours without a single drop to the entire party.

    I got a few drops in a row, switched my matchmaking to regional instead of worldwide.

    Far more stable.

    Who said a patch was out yesterday no such thing on PS3....
    i think people are blwoing smoke or somthing..
    i agree the DC issue is annoying as hell and tghe random lag spikes as well!
    if it dosent get resolved this will be another agem that sits on the shelf just like RDR for the same reasons.

    There was a patch for XBox360 yesterday. I wasn't getting many drops, but it has corrected losing your XP when it does happen. Haven't noticed much else different.

    Seems strange these console games don't allow users to create dedicated servers.
