    I don't think you can level up in private matches.

    Host migration is great. It's better than the "host was a wuss so he quit midgame, now you quit too" nonsense of WFC. I've had much less complicated MP games with more advanced hosting than WFC. FOC is just bringing MP into the modern age.

    I'd rather have that than see the game just end.

    I'd rather see a system that automatically gives the host spot to someone else in the game without the whole "migration" thing. Dunno if it's even doable, but I'd definitely prefer it.

    Still, the host migration is much better than getting dropped out of matches like what would happen in WFC.

    I'm not quite sure I follow but that is pretty much exactly what host migration is.

    I meant I wanted to see a system that doesn't pause the game when it shifts the title of host. I just want it to be an automatic shift that happens when the original host leaves. Basically, the host changes but the gameplay is never interrupted.

    That's not actually possible. Host isn't just a title, it's a function. That player is hosting the game. The game has to pause to shift that to someone else.

    Yeah, I didn't really think it would be doable. It's nice to want, though. :)

    Basically what you want is instant host migration, which is what everyone wants.

    I think he meant more just how often it happens not so much the host migration it's self. I agree there is a lot more host migration now then in the demo, be it the game picking bad host or people quitting or just bad net code.

    This is one of the best parts of the game.. No more sore losers rage quitting in the middle of the game or worse close to the end of the game when your team is winning and losing all those xp points

    Yet. The thing with technology is never say something is impossible because it's possible you will be proven wrong.

    In 20 years (or more likely 10) I'm betting host migration will be almost instantaneous.

    Sorry that you lose your XP when a host quits, but the little "saving to HDD" means that it's saving my progress before it quits.

    And on the PC it doesnt even do that. "Host Migration" is just another word for "Wait 3 minutes while you get kicked from the game"

    You mean like in the RotF game, where the instant the host quit, a new one was automatically assigned?

    I like the host migration, I don't understand why it's so slow. Sometimes it's taken several minutes to complete. Playing Call of Duty, I've never waited for longer than 30 seconds to get back to gameplay.
