Can't Join Multiplayer Games ( Stuck at : Joining Game Lobby )
I recently bought COD Black Ops 2. But when I tried to join a game, it kept saying Testing Matches then Joining Game Lobby....... For Years but not joining a game. I've tried to Change the NAT. Un-install and Re-install. But still doesn't work. If Anyone have the same problem or anyone knows the solution. Plz tell me. I wanna play COD : BO 2 !

the best solution is to throw the game away.

I have a similar issue - just started yesterday, 2/12. Stuck at "Joining Game Lobby..." This happens for both "Normal" and "Best" search preferences. "Any" still works, but crap lag. I have a very fast computer and internet connection... Plan on getting in touch with Activision Support.

If You could get in touch of Activision Support and maybe found a solution. Please write it here, it would help alot of people :)

i have a hard time joining with my settings set to best. but normal and all works. with best i get into a server but then no one else is in there. when i do get one that is full i seem to get more lag issues then with it set to normal. normal i still get good ping. all i get bad lag as well.

problem with best is all that does is puts you in the server that you get the best ping for. but others who have there set to all or normal also join that server.

I'm sorry but I dont know how to change those : Best, Normal, Any Settings in Black Ops Multiplayer, I could set it in Zombies mode. (I'm new to COD, this is my first COD Game), plz tell me as i'm a noob.

Ok here's a step by step

Click "Online"
Click "Public Match"
Click "Find Match"
Press "S"
Click "Connection Type" to cycle through the options. Try different ones and see if it finds matches

Same thing happening here. Have not been able to play since the update. Contacted Activision support and all they directed me to was this:

https://support.activision.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Problem-Connecting-to-an-Online-Game-for-PC

Tech support also suggested that the Connection type be "Open" and the "Connectivity" should be complete "A-J". My settings matched that with no results.

I've tried everything on that support page including port forwarding with no results. I have left post on the activision support forums with no answers. And the support chat guy I was talking to told me that he doesnt deal with PC problems just XBOX and PS3 even though I went to the "Windows" tech support chat. When pressed, all he did was tell me to contact Steam. Useless.

I'll be contacting steam to see what they say and I'll post here if I find anything.

Yah I want my money back if activision doesn't solve this within one week. I spend my hard earned money on a game title like this I expect quality servers and matchmaking not this kind of crap!

it's because your far away from any match, try to increase your max ping limit so you can find a match
YOKO [MI] May 29, 2013 @ 3:03am 
I have my ping set at 200. Like I said thats not the quality I expect from a title like this game.
