Call of Duty: Ghosts Matchmaking Workaround

Here are a few tidbits surrounding the just-released Call of Duty: Ghosts. There's the analysis that "mediocre" review scores won't "enormously impact" sales of the FPS (First-Person Sandler), a contention supported by word of $1 billion in day one sales. There's also the cut-scene that looks like Modern Warfare 2, which has caused some outrage, but may just be an intentional homage. Meanwhile, if you are wondering why bullets can follow you around corners, NowGamer has the explanation from executive producer Mark Rubin. Finally, reader Charliebrownau sends a tip to help with Call of Duty: Ghosts matchmaking to avoid ending up on high-ping servers. Here's a use at your own risk workaround that doesn't seem too risky:

  • With notepad or your fav text editor
    Open this file \Call of Duty Ghosts\players2\config_mp.cfg
    For me it was in D:\Games\steam\steamapps\common\\Call of Duty Ghosts\
  • change seta cl_maxPing "800" to seta cl_maxPing "150"
  • Exit text editor
  • Restart COD GHOST PC
  • Search for a game with lower ping , if you cant find games
    increase to 200 instead of 150

Tip: Might be a good idea to make a backup copy of the config_mp.cfg file before changing it
