Hi there JJawesome,
The game can be quiet most of the time and it can be difficult to find a game. But that is just because there are not many players online. Many people disconnect greatly even with a tiny bit of lag. This happens often. (but hey, you earn free XP and prestige for winning).
Your first issue which I have described above is common. No need to worry.
However, your second issue stating that you get an error message, I cannot help you with.
But I have some thoughts and ways for you to attempt to improve your gaming experience:
- Maybe the servers are down, try loading the game another time. Or if you're bored, play a custom game with dummies.
- Move all nearby consoles away from your Xbox if using a wireless connection. This will help lower your ping rating.
- Have you left games too much or disconnected too much? If you have, this results in a forfeit/penalty and you may be suspended from games for a certain amount of time.
Try following these suggestions. Please reply or contact a member of staff if you get the same issue again.
