How is the host chosen?

12 replies 290 views Edited May 9, 2013
Is it random, based on connection, or something else altogether?

I ask because I remember how capcom did it in lost planet 2 . They tracked your dnf % (did not finish) for each mode. The player with the lowest dnf was always host.

75% rage quitters are always the host, be careful of trying to enrage a well known loser.

So wouldn't capcoms idea make things better if thats how they did it here. If host migration is too hard, maybe this is easier . if they even showed dnf % on our player card it bet leas people would quit

Dnf = did not finish. Basically its a rage quit metric

Yeah I agree. Host migration or DNF% based solution.

This is where I ask how in the world they did not see something like this coming. How did they not anticipate this.
