Double XP everything this weekend, although matchmaking seems off since the latest update. It takes many minutes to find a game even with crossplay on with a huge playlist like Shoot the Ship (that normally takes seconds). Seems like there's a ton of lag all of a sudden and I'm seeing players who seem to be from Europe and South America.
Yeah, had tons of issues waiting forever to find a game last night, and then when it loaded it was super laggy.

Also anybody notice the chat feature in the new update, or is that something that I just never noticed before? It's hard to read, but cool.

I played on lunch and it seems that the issues from yesterday are gone (at least for now).

2xp (weapon and battle pass) are active along with Shoot the Ship.

I started using the Uzi on shipment and it is a lot of fun. Maybe not overpowered, but it got a buff at some point and is a lot of fun. Granted, I think any gun works on Shipment.

Game is running so bad right now. So frustrating.
Yes, they definitely did something. On Friday they tweeted that they fixed it, but it has gotten worse. Simply looking for a 5v5 Shoot the Ship game on cross play and I just sit there. Normally that playlist on a weekend would find a lobby in seconds.

By the time I keep backing out and finally find a match, at least one person in the game is lagging so bad I can't shoot them. Someone ran through an entire magazine of MP5 ammo and didn't drop, so I switch to the pistol and finally drop them (apparently they couldn't hit me either).

There's chatter on Reddit about XP not registering either, which I did notice but didn't pay much attention to. Normally on Shoot House or Shipment, I get half a battle pass level easily, but sometimes it doesn't count.

They've at least finally acknowledged the problem after days of it.

Is this an American issue? We played last weekend with no issues at all. And I have been playing through the week and no issues at all.

Lag and matchmaking can be terrible in Oceania, almost thinking of going back to BF, but when it works it's just so easy to pick up and play.

Maybe, but it was intermittent but very obvious. I was just looking for Shoot the Ship with cross play on, which on a double XP weekend would take seconds, and it would sometimes just sit there. I could find games by backing out and going back in. Other times it would put me in a lobby all by myself. People were waiting 10 minutes+ to find a game. We were joking on Reddit that we should set up private matches and play each other.

My only other guess was it was an Xbox issue, but it seemed to hit a lot of people.

In the northeast US in prime time we just would never run into those issues on such a popular playlist.

Even after I found a game, I had the worst lag I've seen in this game. There'd be 1-2 players who I couldn't shoot, and the same going the other way. There'd be some poor guy who would just be standing there as I shot him (obviously lagging out). I would empty an MP5 into someone at point blank range and then switch to a pistol and still not get the kill.

Overall in this game I've had very little lag up until now.

They extended 2xp through Friday. Not sure if they fixed any issues.

Game has ran like s*** yesterday evening for us on Warzone. Our group was from different parts of the country. Sometimes before you land instead of deploying your shoot it lags and you hit the ground instead. Plus I’ve went 0-6 in the gulag for some strange reason lol.

The theory is that they shut down a bunch of dedicated servers and possibly are moving them to the new game.

Something definitely changed and gotten much worse. Matchmaking seems to take a lot longer and does much worse. Games are way more laggy, teams are not filled even in simple 6v6 modes. I've never had this much trouble with lag, but now most every match is poor quality.

I'm done playing until they fix it. I'm worried that they won't.

They finally nerfed snakeshots. But akimbo Renetti's are going to be the problem now.

Game is doing the bulls*** where it freezes then catches up, I just don’t get why this game runs so bad for me. No issues with any other mp game I played.

did not have any of these issues with black ops 4 or codmw remaster.

They definitely broke something a couple weeks ago. The game was stable for me until the last big update and then it is just lag and bugs everywhere.

Well well. I did mentioned that trying to increase the player to 200 will result in longer lobby time especially when the player base shrink.

Game connection went to sh1t last night after you left. Lag outs during the match on every other game. Hopefully its all in good order for tonight.

I will say, they did an absolutely amazing job with Warzone. Everything from the gameplay, the weapon acquiring scheme, the playlists, they're all awesome. When are some new maps coming out?

Warzone maps? Never. They are doing the Fortnite way.
