socom was never down and had 100x beter features and that was last gen



I saw this post coming a mile away
 
by they way I'm pretty sure they do maintenance all the time on socom.


xbox ads promote playing online with your friends....

it never f****** works dude, i try every day to play GRAW 2 or GOW with friends, some error comes up 9/10 times. On socom you know the name of the room and its therem you dont have to refresh, u just go to the game and play


If you get host errors and connection errors thats not Live, thats your own **bleep**ty connection...

Must be your connection then.  In the 6 months I have had my 360, I have never had trouble once when I hit the join game button in my friend list.

Are you kidding me? Socom was down every week for maintence was it not? I remember the Socom 2 days where there would be a global server crash and everyone would be booted. That happened about once a month.

XBOX Live is worth the $50. But seeing as you critize it so much, I'm going to go out on a limb and and say you never experienced it.

*tisk tisk* P1STONS.  You are showing your true fanboyish ignorance.


look at my sig pal

you must have gone out on a limb and your eyes if your that blind
I got a 360  in november to play with my friends and none of the games has as good fetures to compare to socom
ranking system might be  a little better but thats it- stats suck, finding games with your friends in it takes a half hour
EXAMPLE
"private chat request from friend"
"hey lets play a player match since its easier to play with each other"
" no man, people quit cuz it doesnt affect rank"

"Hey i made a room, filter out this map, make this round time, and number of rounds, make it on execution,
friendly fire...etc"
By the time i make the game settings and look for the game (after refreshing 5 times) "ooo sorry dude its full but i cant quit or my rank will drop 10,000 c ya..."
 
-socom way-
Go to clan roster:
Player:   Room:
Blizz.     US EAST 12: small maps

so i go to us east 12 and look for the name of the room he is in and join

theress a simple example of it. Look at my gamer card ive played gow, vegas, graw 2, and a few sports games, they are really hard to find games with friends, he whole reason i bought a 360 in the first place

That really sucks you cant play with friends.  I have had Xbox Live since beta and always join my personal friends no problem, or anyone on my friends list for that matter.
 
Are you NAT settings on "Open" for your router?

You dont understand, there really is a problem with people not being able to join a friends game.  I have seen it first hand with other friends of mine.  Its definately the settings on his router, or something to do with his configuration.
 
How about you stop flaming this man and offer some help?

Player matches count against your rank on the game.  They don't just not count at all like Socom 2 respawn.  They just don't count against your rank on what you are ranked in the country.  They add on to your stats though.

Why?  I haven't played 360 in a couple weeks and I haven't spammed one bit?  You are the one who is spamming with all of your PS3 fanboy remarks.


Are you the only 360 player?


What was the point in asking that? 


You said you haven't spammed one bit but there are way more 360 players. How do you know they won't spam? Just because you don't doesn't mean they won't.


Maybe thye will, I don't know.  I never said they wouldn't. 


You never said you will.... I don't see this going anywhere so lets just carry on with our lifes.
