Question from chawowzza

Asked: 6 years ago

Why can't I ever be a host?

Me and my friend are always playing online and he always turns out to be the host of games yet my Internet has a higher upload and download speed and I have never yet been the host of a game. So is there anyway that someone becomes the host of the game besides connection?

It's random, amigo. Sometimes you'll host it, sometimes you won't. If your hosting the game, you'll be at the top of the list of players in the game lobby. (Unless of course a few games have already been played, in which case it's the player who's winning that's at the top).

Technically speaking, you can. At the start of each match in the matchmaking it will host the game on one player's internet. If your wondering why you can't actually make your own game, you can, but not a standard ranked game, and it will only be people you invite.

As long as you have a high upload speed you can host ranked games.

If you cannot connect to any other server, most likely, you will host (based on past experiences)

you have to set your internet settings to allow it (the ps3) to be able to host as well, which is why I could not host at all like you.

The selection is hardly random. you need good connection to host but why is it that i have hosted in the past and my max players has been up to 18 then it goes back to 6 ???

It's more based on luck, if you enter a lobby where you're the only one in it, then you are the host, just wait for more players.
