"The connection to the host has been lost"

This has been an issue since the Beta launched and still persists. How close are we to resolving this? Hard to sink your teeth in for a session when either your team is decimated before the match begins turning it into a handicap match, or you're well into a battle and get booted.

What I think they could add is a connection meter like UC3. Those players in the green have a good connection to the host and those in the red have a fragile connection to the host. This would give a player an indication of how well they're connection is for that particular match. That way they can anticipate lag and so forth.

Add this with host migration and that should remedy some of the problems. They used to display an icon when you started getting close to getting disconnected but they removed that in one of the earlier patches.

I think that this bars should be displayed next to the players names even when they go to the score menu during the match. It'll keep us updated on how well we're connected to the host cause I hate fighting in lop-sided matches based on this.

You lost connecyion cause HOST LEFT the game. Trust me. Example:
I had perfect connection but I was owning dudes left and rite then I killed a guy got nemesis and BAM connection lost.
