Does this game still have a lot of host quitting?

#1sketchturnerPosted 10/3/2013 12:39:15 PM
A couple years ago I bought this game and got HOOKED on it for a while. Got up to level 28 or so. But then all of a sudden, every time a round was almost finished, the host would rage quit.

I got so irritated by this that I sold the game and deleted my file. Now I am getting tempted to rebuy the game but am wondering if this is still going on.

I'm also wondering if I really want to start climbing from level 1 again... As I recall it took me a good 50 hours or so to get to level 28, and I don't have all that much time to play video games due to kids/wife/job/housework.

But that said, my memories of playing this game online are some of my fondest gaming memories, and I've been gaming my whole life. It's pretty tempting to go back...

easy but unpopular solution; host yourself.
Other than that, HQ arec common whenever you have a good game, so having bad games helps

The game is good. Like all games it has it's flaws, HQ's being one of them. But you can get around that by partying up as one of you usually gets to host, or as Koopa said you can host yourself.

TBH hackers and boosted noobs spamming OP weapons etc. is the most annoying thing. But you only run into hackers occasionally and I just quit and find another lobby. As the game is still well populated ( surprisingly ) that is easily done.

Perfect Dark ftw :)

I never could figure out how to host. I'm really ignorant when it comes to online play. There are only a handful of games I've played online--Modern Warfare, Modern Warfare 3, Excitebots, MotoHeroz, Mario Kart Wii, Conduit 2, and Goldeneye. I still don't understand the whole concept of clans, which is why I've always avoided this board...

Hosts don't quit in this game. They just get beaten into submission and then run home crying to their connection mommies.

How do I select a host? Whenever I played, it automatically selected a game for me. I don't remember seeing different lobbies. Clearly I must have been doing something wrong?

You weren't doing anything wrong, you aren't able to select a host. You become the host if you are the first person into a lobby. So if you're wanting to host, just keep leaving lobbies until you're in a new one.
