    Give us an add lads I'll be on for a while after 12.

    Couple of things.

    1. That private lobby was great fun alright. Sorry for the lag, as I was host I think. According to Shammy that's down to my internet. It struggles sometimes with upload speeds. But I still seem to get picked as host at times.

    2. People posting gamertags here to get invites, should go to the gamertags sticky and add there tag there. That means they can send out some invites too.

    3. On the random join together game, it could also have been your clan tag, (BRDS) or else if you've a Prefer review for a player. I'm a bit cheeky, in that if I see a really weak player over a few games, I'll go and prefer them on the chance I'll get thrown into their lobby again. I've seen it work once or twice. And I got loads of kills out of it each time. :D

    Is it normally bad for you? I usually see you with 4 bars when I'm host, so does that not help at all? Or is it just when I kill you loads that you complain about my hosting?? ;)

    I've been complaining about bad hosts for about a week, some really bad lag Sat and Sun, I was getting 2-3 bars and suffering because of it. Also, I think my console is going to pack in actually, just a feeling. It's not as responsive as it should be, even as dashboard etc.

    I'm nearly sure that wasn't me. I don't think I was playing FFA at all over the weekend. I don't tend to play it very often with you guys, so I'd be surprised if I was then...

    Saturday night we were thrown in to a lot of yank rooms , hence why i left .If you have a lot saved onto the hardrive it can slow it down.
    New xbox out this week ;)

    It was during the week , remember the 10th prestige that DIDNT camp with the sniper.
    Dont worry about it , i dont know how it picks the host but it is as it is, take for example Kev, his speeds are good but yet if theres too much grenades or pred's the room starts to go.
    Also Nitrox has 15 down 1 up and there for a while if he was hosting a 12 man room it would drop but yet he could host groundwar with no problems ....go figure.

    Nope. Don't remember that. You sure I was online? I was playing golf on Tuesday & Wednesday evening so wouldn't have been on then. I'm pretty sure I wasn't to blame (this time)

    I'm not bothered at all. I get picked as host reasonably often, so I'm not too bothered whether some people suffer in the game. :D (Although I mustn't be too bad, as I've never seen a host migration when I'm in the host seat. )

    Ah yeah. I remember that now. Was that FFA? God, that's not like me to play that game mode. Have you seen him online since? I got the request, and accepted, but can't remember seeing him since.

    (not bugged at all :) )

    Yeah, I saw you getting absolutely screwed in one game. You were on 1 bar at that stage. I began wondering whether you were playing abroad it was that bad.

    Strangest thing the other night. Was playing a game of FFA on Afghan and was shot by someone who's details seemed familiar. Turned out to be a boardsie I'd added: x43r0. It was weird, both of us, boardsies playing on a map that I hadn't invited them in. Odd. :pac:


    Yeah I joined your session
