Please reach out to us again if you’re still experiencing this issue,” a message on the official Twitter account for Activision Support reads.

As you might imagine, this evenings server problems are not going down well with the games loyal? As you can see from some of the online responses just below. ModernWarfare CallofDuty servers are always either down or you have 3h update waitting.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone servers have been experiencing many issues over the last few weeks with matchmaking issues.
Is Call of Duty down? Modern Warfare and Warzone Servers are ‘online’ but players are reporting that they are unable to access online services on all platforms. Reports of issues with Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Call of Duty Warzone are on the rise today, although it doesn’t appear to be a mass outage with the game as we’ve seen previously. Downdetector, a website that collects user reports to help identify if online services are experiencing issues, has also noticed a slow increase of users reporting problems today.
It’s not a sudden sharp spike of players unable to play the game, but rather a slow gradual increase that’s growing with every hour. These problems began rising at around 9am this morning and as of 3. That said, this also wouldn’t factor in anyone who was experiencing issues but not complaining about the service online. It’s equally possible that some of these problems could be linked to issues Virgin Media and Sky Broadband customers have been experiencing today.
On one hand, this would make sense given that Activision’s own server status network page is not showing any issues with the game. Which would suggest that actually, what issues players are reporting, are specifically tied to COD Modern Warfare and Warzone. To show we’re not going completely barmy, here’s a selection of users who also seem to be having issues:. Havent been able to connect all day.
Developer Infinity Ward has been attempting to calm fan anger over the announcement that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will not feature dedicated servers, although so far to little effect – with the online petition against the decision currently at over , signatures. The lack of dedicated servers is due to a new propriety matchmaking service called IWNet, which was announced by Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling in a podcast over the weekend. The response was immediately negative, leading to Bowling posting a new more detailed overview of IWNet on his blog.
Bowling insisted that Modern Warfare 2 is “the biggest investment Infinity Ward has ever made into the PC version of our games. In describing IWNet’s other features Bowling insists that it will still offer many of the benefits of being able to choose games from a specific list of servers, while making the process more accessible for new users.
To try and work around this issue until an official fix is rolled out (or before servers and matchmaking becomes more stable), we’d recommend.
Examples of Host Migration succeeding. Notice how these host migrations occurs after high lag situations rather than the host leaving. The matchmaking system present in the console versions and those PC versions that do not use dedicated servers of Call of Duty games works by gathering players into a lobby a room players are grouped in before a match.
One player is chosen as the host, who hosts the server that all other players connect to. Before Modern Warfare 2 , if the host were to have an unsavory connection or left the game entirely, the game would come to an end with the “The game has ended due to poor connection quality with the host. This became a problem for players who were enjoying their match. Host Migration occurs when the host’s connection is unsavory, or if the host leaves the game.
Then, a new host gets picked, and if the migration is successful, a 5-second countdown timer will begin to resume play. If Host Migration occurs due to an unsavory connection to the host then that player the previous host will be kicked once host migration is completed. The Host Migration in Black Ops is quite similar, although no percentages of packets sent are shown. In almost all cases, a Host Migration due to the host leaving the game will be executed a lot faster than a Host Migration due to connection quality.
The Host Migration system is merely an attempt to establish a new host in order for the game to continue on.
The reaction was both immediate and loud: forums erupted with angry posts, and a petition asking Infinity Ward to rethink its decision quickly surpassed , signatures. So far, the developer seems to be ignoring the complaints of its PC audience. This isn’t whining, however.
The game franchise includes Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops 1, 2, 3 and 4, and Call.
