After the second update arrived last night that fixed the trophy glitch, another huge complaint arises. Since multiplayer is a big factor in Modern Warfare 2, downloading the new update won’t get you access to the matchmaking allowing you not to play online. This is indeed annoying to the fans that bought this game just to play the multiplayer. Several PS3 owners including myself are utterly disappointed with this and we want Infinity Ward to fix this problem.
The game was rushed because there are a lot of things that don’t work. When is IW going to fix this? We don’t know but hopefully soon!
Upon logging into the multiplayer matchmaking screen, you will be greeted by the Online Status that will stay on your screen until you get tired of seeing it:
Updating Ranks and Unlocks…
Connecting to Matchmaking Sever Complete.
Hopefully the downtime is a sign that a new patch is on the way that fixes ALL OF THE ERRORS.
[UPDATE] Randolph d’Amore of Activision stated that the there was a server outage and he doesn’t know when will the server will be back. There is no ETA but currently, they are adding more PS3 servers to meet the MP demand.
[UPDATE] The server is up. It might take some time for you to connect but it’s getting there.
[Final UPDATE] fourzerotwo says: “PS3 Status update of the day: PSN Multiplayer should be running at full capacity. We expect smooth skies ahead.” “Full capacity means anyone who wants to join should be able to. No limit.” via twitter.
Invite issues will be addressed by the patch coming by end of the week.
