Call of Duty Black Ops: Connection Problems Continue on Xbox 360, PS3?

For those of you with a copy of Call of Duty Black Ops and are still noticing some connection-related problems in the game, we want to know how badly are the problems affecting your in-game experience.

Would you consider it to be unplayable, or do the connection problems just serve as a slight annoyance whilst playing? The good news, is that a patch update is on the way for the console versions of the game, and we’d like to think that Treyarch are now focusing their efforts on fixing up the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, now that the PC patch update has already been released.

When we wrote about our initial connection problems thread for Black Ops, we received around 250 comments from you so far, so it is obviously one of the major talking points about the game at the moment. Don’t forget to check the official Call of Duty boards daily, so you know when an update is due to go live and what will be fixed in the update.

Treyarch’s community manager Josh Olin has been providing rolling updates on the list of issues that will be fixed in future updates, we’ll be bringing you more details on that shortly.

For now, let us know if you are still having connection problems with the game, and how bad they affect your experience in-game.

An utter disgrace!! Even trying to get a few hours worth of gameplay in on the ps3 just ends up a waste of your life! How dare they release this game before it’s ready and charge us £40 for it. This is criminal!….,,I wonder if watchdog would like to investigate this for all of us gamers?? Something needs to be done and quickly cos I’m losing my temper on a daily basis!!

How can they release a game and charge people over £40 for it when it doesn't even work properly? Trying to get a game in now and so far I've managed to finish 1 game in the last 2 hours without connection issues, and I only joined that one halfway through. Unacceptable

Just had to stop playing because the whole group was getting the game lobby closed prompt consistently for about 45 minutes. Really getting sick of this.

Depending on time of day/night in the UK, the PS3 connection problems vary a lot. When USA is online then sometimes it is impossible to get a game – just won't connect and if it does the game stops part way through. If I can't even get a game started after 15-20 attempts I give up and swith the game off. Also when playing friends in Australia in a private match, the connection is now so weak (now 1 red bar whereas it used to be 3 yellow bars) that there is always a 1-2 second time lag for the… Read more »

I don’t know why the Funk I continue to buy this game! The first one had effin hackers galore that have to cheat to make themselves feel good, and now this one will lose connection, kick you out of the lobby and when you join another one it’s starts you in a lobby with a team that’s getting their ass kicked. I’m just about done! I’ll take my money somewhere else!!!

Well there is quite a few problems here.. 1) lagging horribly when in gun fire. 2) getting parties of two or more into a game. Usually takes about 10 minutes of going to find match. Very annoying.. 3) while in a wager match. Playing two ppl on the same profile and same tv.. If one person dies out he can toggle thru his spectating screen and tell the other player where the enemy is.. I’ve lost alot of matches over this and I wish it would get fixed. 4) sometimes when me and an a enemy are having a dual… Read more »

the game is good but when i try to connect to a game or im sending a game invation for zombies or just online it wont let my friend join or i cant join to my friend and its a really bad problem that should be fixed because the game isnt fun without playing with your friends!!!!

When in the Zombie lobby when it says "Migrating host..1 ..2 " once it gets to 10 I am immediatly dropped with a message like "Game Lobby Closed" I have not been able to play one game of zombies in a while since it used to be random now its everytime.

It takes a long time to find a match, and when I finaly get in to a game I lag. I usualy have 3-4 bars but now I have 2 bars. this happened on MW2 and Black Ops on my Xbox and my brothers. I have played the online mode on my nabors PS3 and i loved it!
Hope it will be fixed or that anyone will tell me what to do.

I play on the Xbox360. I have been so frustrated with this game on Xbox live. It has the potential to be so fun but to me it is unplayable. I have been troubleshooting things on my end (Modern Warfare 2 ran fine) but this game does not run properly. The other complaint I have with this game is the when you shoot someone and they drop into last stand what is up with the handgun being the most powerful weapon in the game able to drop you in one or two shots? The weapon powers seem to be wrong.… Read more »

I cannot play AT ALL with a party. If I play alone it always works beautifully, but if I want to play with my friends at all, its a no go.

backdoc

We have had an enormous amount of trouble playing online. It's unplayable. No other games and nothing else in my house has issues. And, we have a friend in the neighborhood playing at the same time. We both lose connection. So, it's not *my* connection or *my* setup. Also, the prestige items don't seem to unlock properly. My system is the PS3. The game play is great. But, I would not recommend buying it until they get the server issues resolved.

alex

i cant even last a match, it kicks me out with a 'connection problem' yet when i load mw2 after its fine, go back to black ops…. it doesnt work. what a complete let down. this was treyarchs time to shine but if they cant even manage to get people in a game and actually let them see it through, they have no hope. the funny thing is, it counts as a loss when they fuck it up and kick you out! well worth the money isnt it.

Andrew

The party play is impossible to get right, sometimes we can’t hear eachother and other times one of us gets left or one of our ps3’s flip out and freezes on us. I didn’t like Modern Warfare 2 a lot, but if these problems are not fixed by Christmas, and fixed well, then I’m going back to Modern Warfare 2.

Have had Black Ops now since it came out and have been only been able to play one full night on multiplayer. Keeps saying onnection interuppted and booting me off. Getting seriously pissed off with the whole thing now. £40 wasted!!
Went back to play MW2 tonight and found out it is now doing the same thing!!! I had never had any problems playing on line before but I'm beginning to think this patch has wrecked it for both games! Tottally sis heartend with it all!

Zombie-Lover123

Love the zombie maps, but I have “game lobby closed” messages pop up all the time. It takes over 30 minutes to get in a game. I will be walking and then just fall down and die. I see the counter for zombie kills misses 1 here and there. It also gives you no points when it registers a kill on the counter.

Fix the software please.

PS3 user…….Almost every other game i play online i get connection error and game hangs up! Also on many occasions it will freeze and i have to reset my ps3!!! This is totally unnaceptable on a £40 game. Shame i cannot get refund or i would have taken it back straight away!!! I have literally lost hundreds of thousands of points and £'s cod. I woud have easily been 20-25 levels above what i am currently, ridiculous and unplayable! (P.S. my wifi connection nearly always shows 4 bars and i run wireless to console @ 10+meg!

my ps3 is fine thankfully, but with xbox it just tries looking for a match on team deathmatch and just wont connect to one! combat training.. fine. any other online matches NADA. except when i tried at 8.30 this morning otherwise nothing. NOT IMPRESSED!

I keep losing connection then always the host migration comes up when i am playing

I am currently playing Black ops on PS3. Always have three or four bars of signal. Am constantly getting dropped and connection interrupts. I have not been happy with this game Wi-Fi since i started with it. If it does not get corrected soon i will go back to Modern Warfare II, as i never had problems with it. I have come to realize that Activision should have kept with Infinity ward as the graphic designer as well. While Treyarch’s graphics are good, the coloring and sharpness of infinity ward is superior. I hope they solve this Wi-Fi problem soon… Read more »

Before the update it took me 30 minutes to join a game… couldnt join any parties with mates. When we did join half of us got kicked out!… after the update all i can join is sabotage! what on earth is wrong with COD! you would think common sense would prevail… its a popular game yet they decide to release patches after the game releases? I love the game but this is beyond a joke. Never happened on cod4 or mw2 or waw

Bessey

I've had serious connection problems from the start. When black ops first came out, i couldnt even join a game, after the patch came out (ps3) if figured that I can play between around 2 am until about 4 pm without a hitch, 3-4 bars all the time. although between 4 pm and 1-2 am im lucky to get two bars of connection.

jonathan

Almost every single game i play has lag or connection interruption or host migration. I have issues connecting to games if im partied up. It will kick me out of the lobby once a game has been joined, or it wont take my party member with me or it will never find a game.

i think this game is awesome, but it becomes f**king unplayable then you try to get back in the game and you cant join. then you eventually join a game just to have it jumping about knowing that its going to cut you out again. i have a pretty short temper and i have to stop myself from smashing everything up through frustrasion. all i want to do is enjoy a good evening playing it but instead i spend most of my time wasting my own life hours. its ment to be fun but i just end up f**king p**sed… Read more »

Ahhh its annoying, i have 360 and usually near the ends of the games it just cuts out and says connection interrupted. or some host migration thing. Its really annoying, its happened to me a few times when i've had a chopper gunner and i've got a good score. it happens every 3rd match or so.

I seem to have most trouble getting into games when in party with my mates, which is definately not related to my interneed speed or ping!
It's also incredibly irritating when i get disconnected or lag in a wager match and my funds are not returned!!!
Damn you Treyarch, collect billions in profit and do little to support the amount of people they have sold them too in terms of connection…..

this is truely shocking first week worked a treat for me after thats its been shite getting disconnected comming up with errors left right and center should of realised how shit treyarch are after world at war but hey ho, bloody bring back infintity ward to show them how to make a proper game.

Yer all the f**cking tim, i a true gamer on xbox 360 and the game keeps connecting and then boots me out its bullshi*. Once that happens i can never seen ti get back in. The patch was for glitches in multiplayer and hacking 15 prestige but yer they did nothing to multiplayer. Treyarch has made a great game but…. the multiplayer seriously i want all the issues fixxed now :l

I’m still having issues as well after the update .. Everytime I get killed or dive my control disconnects I even tried switching controls and still get the same problem .. I watch netflix and and play other games and I don’t have this issue has anybody else been experiencing this on xbox 360

Want to talk about problems with Black Op's, I use my computer and I have had nothing but problems with Black Op's. I even upgraded my graphic card which I really did not have too, and that did not help. My computer meets or exceed all the minimum reqiurements to run the game.

Party Connection is the biggest problem. Connection on a whole is pretty terrible it ruins the experience to a degree where i'm considering dusting of MW2. At least I can actually join a lobby. Treyarch sort it out! Why spend all that time on making the game when you dont have the servers to create any positive online gameplay. Connection on this game is so bad its not even worth going online anymore. Treyarch you better fix it soon and the "patch" better work.

I downloaded the patch as well and the issues are still there. Did this patch even do anything but try to make people feel better inside while they try to figure out how to really fix it? Since launc I have spent. Nearly 20 hours trying to play and about 6 hours actually playing it. This company seems to have taken a franchise to make fast money on and said screw fixing anything just like mw2. Ima have about a weeks worth ofpatience before I retrn the game and swear off this garbagecan company. They ruined all the other games… Read more »

Seriously EPIC FAIL by Treyarch, the game essentialy is unplayable online. For Evey 20 mins worth of gameplay myself and my friends spend around 40 mins F*****g about with the menus and party system, it simply doesnt work. Hardly ever finds a game, random kicks, multiple host migrations during game, some of the worst lag I have ever experienced in a game EVER.

This could be a fun game but all the problems completely RUIN the gaming experience, mines going back to the shop as its not fit for purpose.

Im getting constant lag after 2/3 games. in the first few games the connection is great then for some reason it starts lagging, especially when im in a gunfight with someone, which in turn i loose. its very god damn frustrating. I can even host with 55mbps-ish and 20mbs-ish upload and I'm STILL lagging. i had a few problems with MW2 but that was because the internet connection in my village was awful (thanks copper cabling) but now with fibre optic and a booster thingy literally less than 100 yards from my house sureeely it cant b the internet and… Read more »

I get this issue sometimes even when everyone has good latency, it’s like the game is struggling and not lag. It does it combat training too sometimes.

One game I’ll have a K/d of 4 or 5 say next game i get killed 10 times in a row cause no god damn bullets seem to hit anyone!!!!

Serious let down with this game after all the hype too, and I am a massive cod fan.

Anyway I am waiting to see what the developers who left infinity ward are Gunna do with EA!!

I did not buy the game because I was skeptical of its quality since infinity ward was not creating it. So far my skepticism was accurate. I am considering not buying the game because I have had considerable problems with: MATHCMAKING – This is soooo bad, LAG (again, really bad at times), getting booted from games or people leaving rooms and not putting more players in. The overall game play just doesn't seem as crisp as MW2. Some games I can drop players with a certain gun then other games I can empty a whole clip and get nothing….or get… Read more »

I love the call of duty games and black ops was a automatic trusted purchase. I was absolutely shocked with the multiplayer quality. On previous COD'S I usually suck on multiplayer but, still have fun. I can't beleive how well I'm doing on Black ops I'm getting high kill scores and everything which is cool because I wasn't even aiming at the poor buggers who died. So all I have to do is switch of my PS3 every five minutes when it crashes repeatedly, go back on line, shoot at walls and here twelve year olds crying BUT HE MISSED… Read more »

I will give them one more week and back to MWF2. Even HALO reach has a smoother graphic engine. They could of made a great game they made a medicore one.

I want some of that money back. Maybe this is a good time for a class action suit against a mega-industry? I paid out way too much moolah for a game that doesn't work half the time online. And don't bother putting some COD play money in my hand, I want the real thing. Modded Warfare 2 was more than just a hackers paradise, it was a glimpse of the future.

Coolno

So this guy is shooting me in a hallway or somewhere else and I run away around the corner where he cant shoot me any more and die there. You see the killcam and I never reached around the corner in the first place?! Also not getting the money you earned when you are playing very well because it says connection stopped (the plug symbol thing) in the last minute is a serious ball ache. Treyarch was just too busy hyping the game up instead of actually focussing on its gameplay. This is why they will never beat infinityward.

Redro
Redro

It's not completely unplayable, if you camp, use claymores and RPG you can at least make your kill more than your deaths. Still Treyarch you need to give this priority.

But yeah even after the 1.03 patch the connection is worse, can't remember the last time a played a full game from start to finish.

I say "not" unplayable but It's pretty close. I only bought this to play the multiplayer, and I admit I'm disappointed not by the game but just the connectivity problems.

Logged on this afternoon to see an update was available. After the update I had one complete game followed by over an hour of trying to get a full game. Connection error came up quite a lot, the clan get split up or can't even join, it will say the server is full, the lobby closes just after managing to start a new game, people were in and out the lobby like wildfire and you still can't turn off (or even see) some peoples mic. It is now 6pm and I have given up trying. AARRGGHHHHHHHH! Why release a game… Read more »

Exact same as a comment or two above. I simply bought the game to join mates, and the party system does NOT work. It worked once after about 15 attempts last night, and then the game failed halfway through. I have NO problem finding games on my own, just CANNOT party with any friends. Just end up getting seperated or left in a lobby or split up somehow. It's absolute NONSENSE and incredibly frustrating.

Ive fully enjoyed MW2 which was thanks to Infinity Ward, which in my opinion should of done this game as well. Black Ops should of been called STRESSED OUT, as for the past week or so i have had nothing but hassle with connection issues, getting kicked out either during the game. I have not been able to enjoy this game at all and any game treyarch is involved with I will not have anything to do with in the future as they have totally ruined my gaming experience.

What do ya know! Im not even shooting him somehow!!!! WOW! DIDN'T KNOW WE HAD A PERK FOR A DAMN BLAST SHIELD!!!He's using the Force!!!!!! Or i dont even see him raise his gun and i see flash come from his body and i'm dead……..WTF Treyarch!

I consider this game "unplayable," and that is an understatement.

Cannot get on for hours, when I do, cannot finish a match without new host every 10 seconds, then game lobby closed.

I play the training lobby only.

Myself (and pretty much all of my friends on the Xbox platform) have all but given up on the game. Single person is great and Zombies was done well … but the multiplayer is simply a joke. Parties crash, if you can even get in. Host migration … well, there isn't any. I think the worst part about it (if you can even get IN a game) are the spawns. There's nothing like getting on a map and having the entire opposing team lay you out. I mean really? All that time in development and you couldn't see the spawns… Read more »

XBOX 360:

Unplayable. I, along with most other gamers, only purchased this game for its online play. At least twice a minute during online play I get connection interrupted where I am running in place for a good 5 seconds and then warp around. This happens every game I join. 2-3 out of 5 games I join I simply get dropped. I am already seriously regretting purchasing this game.

Yea its pretty bad. Im shooting the f*** out of some guy, he kills me and the killcam is like "you weren't shootin bitch. HAHA!!!" It pisses me off so bad, then it's like, "Connection interrupted bitch. HAHA!!!" This is why they should have had a public beta, the community could have noticed all the problems before the actual game came out.

MAJOR problems with match making system, takes forever to find match with a full party and kicks half of party when able to find game! Myself and numerous clan members having issues with unloading full clip in enemy, yet his delayed shots kill! HUGE COD fan, must say VERY disappointed! If issues aren’t fixed very soon entire clan going back to mw2! Really hope that doesn’t have to happen!

Fist of all Black Ops is a Excellent Game but treyarch really need to fix the party invitations because i cant seem to invite or join some of my mates games, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't . And I also seem to get disconnected after playing two or three matches online. Also when i play zombies i cant hear all the party members , since the key to survival is communication it would be nice if they fixed that too.

I paid for this game to play online and with my xbox live friends, Now i know people will complain about stuff more than let you know how much they appreciate it ..dont get me wrong I love the game and I love that this one takes some skill (noob proof as i call it) to aim. But shouldn't this have been tested? Just keep us updated on when this will be fixed, 60 dollars for a game to some people is alot.

its horrible. im on ps3 and i live in canada. i always party up with some friends on the east coast in the states and at least one of us gets kicked with transmission error every game. and when u try to rejoin you either instantly get kicked again or the server gets full. trying to find games by myself is awful as well. constant hosts with shit ass connections, so many failed games. i probably spend half my time with this game in and out of lobbies. never had this problem with mw2 or cod 4.

First you cant get a COD party in to a game…then you cant get in to a game at all with or with out a party…and when you get in chances are you are going to be playing against a bunch of douche bags that camp on the spawn points…

i play on xbox and sometimes i'll get kicked from more than half of my games played. makes me want to return the game. one day it took me like an hour just to play through a full game, it kicked me out of like 7 games in a row. and the search times seem to be longer than they should be. i have my setting on 'any' and my connection is fine. but it takes so long to find a lobby and stay in it i could go make a damn sandwich. i like the game, hope it gets… Read more »

I've been playing call of duty since the beginning and the major lag is going to make me quit playing. I wait about ten minutes to get a match. It lags so much. Its not only multiplayer but zombies too.

Well I don't know about others, but I'm having major connection drops, its actually gotten worse in the last 2 days for me. I have an excellent connection, typically full bars (speednet in the browser rates it as 30Mbps dL). But, after a random amount of time (sometimes 3 minutes, sometimes much longer), it drops to 1 or 2 bars, and says connection interrupted. As of this night, it's been slightly better, but still happens about every other game. I've tested streaming on the ps3 to see if its my connection, watched the first epidsode of WWII HD (I think… Read more »

I have been having connection problems with the xbox version and it is quite annoying. It does not happen all the time but when it does it last most of the game and really hope they fix that and the fact that you sometimes spawn right next to the other team which is annoying because you either get a real easy kill or you killed within the first seconds of that life.

happens every time i get online.. I can usually play one to two games until it happens and most of the time i get kicked and can no longer play.

Yes the party system needs to be fixed as well still…inviting friends into a party and joining a party seems to still be having problems. I will work one min and then not the next. Another thing that should be adressed is the weapon damage from the guns while playing non hardcore modes. I think it is a little crazy that you empty half of your magazine into the enemy and they will hit you less with a less powerful gun? I dont know if its the frame rate dropping or the lag but im running 32mbps and 14 mbps… Read more »
