I always pull host, and that is the absolute worst thing you can have happen in this game.
Last night, for s**** and giggles, I chocked my upload to 128 kbps and IT STILL GAVE ME HOST!!!! LOL
Sorry i lolled hard at this. Maybe it still liked your ping. LMAO
Yeah getting host for me is downright unplayable. Used to be in Blops 1 ild see that 19 second countdown and get a big smile. Now i see it and just shake my head. I didnt think it was possible to be worse than mw3, yet they pulled it off.
I leave a game immediately if I see a host migration because I know I'm getting it.
For the first time in the history of COD, I prefer to get put into games in progress.
My WL is already s*** so what's the difference? At least I can kill people. LOL

Basically certain ports need to be forwarded for the xbox to work right. DMZ opens all ports which is a good way to test if your problems are port-related. It's not a good idea long term for a computer, but it's not possible for Xboxes to get viruses (as far as I know).
Common sense tells me no as well. I'll hold out hope, because its holding the game back from being a contender for the best installment. The content is great, the connectivity, spawns and footsteps need tweaking.
I think they penalized you soundwhores by making you actually have to use the perk to be able to hear.
