I'll have to try it out once I'm done unlocking everything. I got a while before that happens.

I will probably be playing a lot more once I finish up Dark Souls. So far, one thing that I don't like is the matchmaking. It pretty much sucks, there is basically no easing people in so my k/d sucks right now because I am getting killed by people ranked in the 70's (while I am a 22). I remember in previous years they grouped fairly close to the same rank, at least within reason.

Once I get the maps down, my k/d should go back up.

...unprovoked, relentless harassment based on gamer tag.
I've been playing COD's (4, MW2 and MW3) since MW2 came out. this weekend was my first experience with another player in a lobby relentlessly attacking me just because of my gamer tag. I didnt' say a single word to him or anyone else in the lobby (I was there before he joined). he was promptly muted. I still remained silent. 3 games later, I unmuted him to see if he was still going on, and he was.

I don't want to repeat the comments he was making, but they were highly offensive.

What're folks threshold for reporting a player. This guy came pretty darn close to needing to be reported IMO.

Best,
jeff

Anyone else find after playing ground war that, 12 player matches are slow/boring?

Also does sandy ravage, or whatever his name is have a ps3? I noticed in his "spastex" videos some clips are on a ps3 (noticed the ps3 d-pad). I'd like to play with him. All though I'm guessing he gets friend requests all the time

Sounds sufficient enough to warrant a grief report to me. I would have.

In my experience the opposite is true but I rarely find a match in GW without it being a lag-fest. If it wasn't for that I would be playing GW almost exclusively.

Not like it would do anything.... He didn't have to listen. That's exactly why the mute is there.
post #308 of 824
yep, I used the mute and use it alot to filter out background noise people are transmitting (crying babies, music choices, chit-chat).

I mainly wondered what people's threshold was for reporting. I also don't think it'd do any good.

I don't bother with a report due to the fact that it doesn't really do anything. If anything they just placed it in the game to give people a sense of satisfaction.

If I play alone. I just plug my mic on and leave the volume off. Never hear a thing.

Then why did 1600 accounts get banned...

That had nothing to do with reporting. Ironically most of those accounts were banned from exploiting the game. including the buttons in a clan tag. Not a single person from those bans were from someone talking trash on a mic.

You guys have any opinions on how running a 240 HZ setting on your TV could affect your input lag and just lag in general in game? I ask this because ever since I got the new TV my KDR has been sucking bad. Three CODs prior, on my old TV I'd do ok, 1.29 on average with each. Now, however, with Black Ops and MW3 I'm lucky if I break even in a game. Everyone just seems to have such quick/instant jumps on me. Of course I need to blame it on the TV.

I'm gonna try shutting it off next time I play. I'm hoping it helps me just more than psychologically.

It isn't in your head. Playing with 240hz will make the lag even worse for you. That's why you feel as if they have a jump on you. It's because they do. Put your tv in game mode. Otherwise your scores will continue to drop. Exact reason i play on a monitor now instead of any of the sets I have in my house.

My set will do 120HZ but I use the game mode, which shuts that off. Any extra processing by the TV will cause input lag and I imagine quadrupling the refresh rate, with the TV trying to add info to smooth the picture, would cause some lag. If your set has a game mode you should use it when playing.

Also: Is your TV significantly larger than the old one? I went from a 40" to a 55" back in June. It took me quite a while to adjust, mainly because your eye has to cover so much more ground. Best thing I did was to lower my aiming sensitivity on every game that has the option, because it was easy to overshoot when turning on that big screen. What you lose in turn speed is more than made up for in accuracy.
post #315 of 824
^^ I had a feeling the 240 Hz setting wasn't helping me. Just haven't had a lot of time to look into it. But yeah, Jukebox, I can't tell you how many times I'm shocked at just how quickly everyone gets the jump on me. Every game! Practically every death I have. I started to think about it, because even just watching TV with the 240 Hz setting there's a sync problem/delay with the picture. Shut it off last night, and suddenly as if by magic, everything was fine. And the picture doesn't look and worse/different without the 240
Hz. And that made me think of my gaming struggles.

Crash42, I moved from the exact same TV sizes as you. And yes, it did take a little getting used to. Got a little dizzy at first, even. It's been long enough now, though, that it seems normal. I do have my sensitivity on the default setting, and it feels pretty good.

Thanks for the input, guys.
post #316 of 824
Anytime!
post #317 of 824
The 240 Hz setting definitely isn't helping. It's almost certainly giving you another 50 to 100 ms of input lag.
post #318 of 824
Kess- glad you're fixed. Guys appearing literally out of nowhere is no fun to deal with when online.

I need some advice myself. I've been researching, looking for a way to get online running better in this game and my PS3 overall. I'm going to take my PS3 out of DMZ and forward the ports manually, so I'm looking for advice on a trusted list of ports or anything that will improve performance.

After some research I'm probably going to use the list at PortForward.com. Their list for MW3 specifically and PSN overall are identical save for one extra in MW3, port 81 (some kind of communication port I think). PortForward also jives with a thread on the COD forums, though there are a couple differences between the two. I'm not familiar with the tech details of each port, so any of you net wizards out there feel free to add a suggestion or offer advice.

Here's PortForward's recommendation.

Port forwarding wont help with lag. It'll just prevent you from connecting to some people and thus you're never given the honor of being host. Anyone who says it reduced their lag is just feeling the placebo effect.

If you had your PS3 in the DMZ, you don't need to PF. It won't hurt anything to put it back behind the firewall though as long as the right ports are forwarded.

Are you just worried about DMZ allowing for people to hack your PS3? If not, why go through the hassle of port forwarding if you already have DMZ setup (which basically opens all ports)?

the one thing I did awhile ago to get good ps3 network performance, was to run my dsl (at&t elite service, not u-verse) modem in bridged mode. (details: Behind it on the LAN I have an older linksys wired router with 4 switched ports as well as another 5 port wired switch. I have a mix of wired and wireless devices on the LAN; 2 wireless n netgear access points.) This was the magic bullet that gave me reliable NAT open status. I tested DMZ following the guide here on setting wireless up. I don't use it now.

my ps3 is running wireless (I know wired is better, but haven't invested the time to try and get a wire to it with wireless working so well).

One last tweak that seemed to help was to change the channel to 11 on the wireless router. When the nearby cordless phone would ring, the connection might get flakey.

I still deal with low-ish bandwidth, but it's not on the LAN, it's the DSL connection to the internet. e.g. if my daughter decides to start streaming pandora to her laptop, my son playing minecraft and myself on the PS3 start complaining/screaming for it to stop.

Best,
jeff

Man, if your pipe is so thin that streaming audio causes you issues you should def consider investing in a router with QoS.
post #323 of 824
Thanks for the responses guys.

I know that DMZ opens everything, the downside being that you can get lots of extraneous traffic that will hurt your performance. Another thing I'm trying to cure is connection issues with a couple of friends on the opposite coast, so this couldn't hurt since we already have trouble connecting anyways.

Please explain how port forwarding will affect the chances of hosting a P2P game, when everyone from Sony, MS, and the multiple devs of MW3 all recommend doing so to cure online issues. They want the players to host their own games without a server, right? I'm really curious as I'm looking to learn more about how this all works.

I agree that QoS would help. my daugher's laptop seems to cause issues while my wife's desktop machine streams all day and causes no problems.

The extraneous traffic is clogging your downstream whether your firewall or you PS3 rejects it, so its shouldn't matter.

I forget the exact details why, but it's a lot of jargon you basically don't need to know. What you do need to know is if you're NAT is open or not. You want it to be, and you want everyone else you want to reliably connect to to be. A friend of mine has a strict NAT and isnt techie enough to fix it and we often have trouble partying up. I'd start there - making sure everyone has an open NAT. Coast to coast is going to cause lag issues even if NAT issues are sorted out, but the only fix to that is moving closer.
post #326 of 824
I don't know why anyone wouldn't want there ps3 in DMZ mode. My only thing is. What if you have more then one? I have 2 play stations and 1 Xbox. Only one of them is open because it's in DMZ. How would I go about doing the ports?

Thanks for that. MW3 says my NAT is open, but the connection test on PS3 says 'not available'. This has only happened recently and I haven't changed anything. Same thing for some other small problems. I'll keep experimenting and see if I can squeeze some better performance out of my online service.

Unless your router allows more than one item in DMZ you would have to forward ports for a similar result. Portforward.com explains the procedure clearly, though you might wand a knowledgeable friend nearby if you're not comfortable. That's what I did the first time I set my router.

I've tried forwarding ports as well. Big problem with that is it seems I can only forward the ports on one of them. After that I can't do another system because it tells me that service is already being used. Something like that.

I really wany to like this game but, I can't seem to go positive no matter what i do (camp, rush or whatever). I keep going back to black ops and even when i get the laggy games i do good. I'm 1.43 on blops and climbing with a 2.25 w/l, but on mw3 i'm 1.22 and going down rapidly. wtf? I get so frustrated daily! I think i've quit mw3 like 50 times. God is this like smoking?

You have to hang in there and keep playing. In time things will change. You just have to keep trying and don't let anger get in the way of how you play.
