Anyone know when or if they are even going to bother fixing the Dedicated Servers. Was having a terrible night playing the game then a host quit and ended the game in ranked. I may actually have to go back to COD if they give up on this.
I don't have any issues when not on dedicated servers. The P2P netcode is much better in Gears 3 and as long as the host and yourself have a suitable connection, there isn't any issues. It's been a great experience for me all around.
Horde/Beast/Campaign don't use dedicated and I haven't had any lag in any of those games either.
I don't think i was on a dedicated server all yesterday. When you see someone walk right through an actived boom shot to the face and later you get killed from the DBS from halfway up the stairs on thrashball it's pretty obvious you're on p2p.
Some are on servers and some are not depending on how may people playing, server maintenance, or network issues. IMO, if your game has to search greater than 15 out of 15 possible matches you are pushed to a off server p2p. So, for me, I don't settle
for a game after 15 possible match searches. I just play horde or something else because p2p is just fine playing against bots.
That's an interesting take on it MizZoorA. I generally always get into the first game on Multiplayer versus even when I play with a Strict NAT (happens sometimes when other people have logged onto my network).
