Firstly I can say i love GOW2 its a great game and worth the wait.
However I live in New Zealand and 8 out of 10 games on Public are very Laggy, I know this is the same for my Australian friends also and very frustrating ,.I think the USA and Europe are not so bad but we are on the other side of the world so lag is pretty much a give in when we get American host.
This blows and makes you not want to play public games, however you can't search for Private games to join so you have to start one from scratch and you can get stuck playing bots for ages till you get a full game.
This was a problem in the first one but once they introduced the connection bar we could see that we where entering a match with good connection.
Halo has the option to choose to search for good connection and has the same team matchmaking so I assume it should not be to hard to add it in to GOW2. it makes the match fair for everybody and if we had to wait a little longer to find a non laggy match then that would be a small price to pay.
Please add in an option to search for good connection I think it will make alot of people happy and more likley to continue playing GOW2 for a long time to come.

We just need some kind of bar system back on the host connection rather than the auto matchmaking.

But Im sure it'll come good. And I still love it!!!!

I second this thread. I'd love to see filters like Halo 3. I would also like an option to easily Party Up after a match if you would select, like Halo 3.

Too be HOnest that will also the reason y people love GOW1 cuz everyone had the changes to go in a private match and warm up or just mess around in the game b4 playing any public or ranked matches

Concur Pejing. I think GOW1 solo is much more playable, and much easier to join in too.
