If they would just use dedicated servers a lot of the problems everyone is having would be fixed with one easy solution. Hope it doesnt turn into Uncharted MP where it took Naughty Dog about 6 months to make MP playable and by that time no one played it anymore.
Ok, firstly I would like to thank 7 mates who were able to help make this testing possible:

We hosted 4 private games with myself as host, 3 of the games picked the same host, who has a 200mb download and 3mb upload, the other game it picked a player with a 50mb download and 4mb upload.
Even though I have a much faster upload at 17mb it appears that it picks the host with the fastest download, would be nice if this could be confirmed by the devs, even if they dont know as it may be microsoft coding.
The good news is that it does not seem to be random or pick the worst host. If other members could do similar tests it may show a pattern.
I always thought that upload was key for xbox live i.e p2p as the host (server) needs to push out all the data, if thats the case why is the game choosing the fastest download?
Hope this help, but would be nice to get some more tests from other members.
Such a goog game is being so easily ruined by your match making .
Even when it works, and you find a local game with a suitible host, there is nothing stopping the rest of world being paired with your game
which ends up with 3 players from around the globe in there making everyone lag against them.
If everyone had a local only option, then we would get a quick solid game happening... and elsewhere when it may not be prime time can find the fewer players that are actually on
at that time of day, instead of being put in games scattered all of the globe.
Funny, every problem in this game is blaming on NAT! I'm always on NAT 2 and I never experience a major lag as this in every game! 50% of the matches I've been in was a lag fest! This is the most laggiest game I've ever played and that's a fact! If you can't handle a proper multiplayer then don't make one! After loads of delays, this game is still very unpolished!
