After having come back into this from a break of it for over a week or so the host dosn't seem to like it when I'm winning its happend several time in a row now (people each time) and I think I'm just gonna give up getting those last 3 match of the champion wins now if my effort is going to waste...
I doubt host migration will be implemented. Seems like a very arguous task that should have probably been put in the game to begin with. So if they havent done it by now then Im not sure they ever will. Plus you got to look at the following the MP has. As much as I dislike the game, but CoD has a far bigger following for it's MP than this game. I think the only way host migration could be put in this game late is if by some miracle, the numbers jump a lot higher. And who thinks that's ever going to happen?
It's crazy how, despite the age of the platform, this sort of code/logic isn't shared among the various properties. You'd think there'd be a shared library for this sort of stuff. All PS developers would benefit. As the poster above stated - to start from scratch on something like host migration is a large undertaking and would require significant budget. I spent countless hours playing multiplayer in all three Gears of War games and watched as people begged and pleaded for host migration, game leaving penalty, and bots. Eventually they were all implemented but not for a long time and only because the MP base was large and they had the budget for it. The larger games like Gears and Call of Duty have it because they can afford it. Sux.
Well, if they won't do it, I would like our dear gypsy to inform us, so we don't post threads about this anymore.
I think this should exist, because it's a basic thing. It's really unfair with the non-host persons in the lobby to get kicked because someone left...
I agree this is probably complicated to implement, but I think it's a must.
And I would. No worries there.
