Friday's, Saturday's and Sunday's are the busiest periods on CoD 3. During the rest of the week the peak hours would be between 9pm - 3am UK time.
With regard to the newer maps, they are normally played between the times mentioned above at least 5 days of the week. It usually consists of rotating around CTF. Single CTF and occasionally War and HQ. These are regularly 8 vs 8 games but every so often
we are treated with a classic 12 vs 12.
I've debating picking this up, and call me crazy, but I like playing ranked matches and trying to get all the achiemvents in a game. Are ranked matches always dead, or do they pick up at certain times?
I was hoping to get all the achievements for this game, but don't think it will happen now. I loved playing multiplayer back when this was popular. Maybe I should try playing again and see if anyone else is on.
