How many of you have played the multiplayer side of this game?

And of those who have have you noticed the cool HA ability of the IW online gaming system?

Let me explain when I say HA ability:

What I have noticed is if you are connected to a game and playing away happily, then suddenly the game experience begins to deteriate on the host. you think great, my connection is bugging out.  Then the screen freezes and you think "awesome, here comes the timeout/lost score/restart session" but no, the host migrates the game to a more suitable host for you to continue play on!

The first place I saw this was with ESX and Virtual Center and the ability to have your guest OS move between ESX hosts if one ESX host fails.

What a good idea, means online game play is more reliable and more seamless for people not familiar with it (no need to find another server/host or worrying about the connection speed)

Has anyone else experienced this yet?

Yes I've had this regularly, usually about once per round. Although It does the job well I'm not going to praise it as it's really just a dirty work around for what shouldn't be a problem in the first place.

Yes, I'm complaining about the lack of dedicated server support in CoD:MW2, how original :)

Interesting, I have only had it a couple of times (from about 1.5 hours of play)
I generally play the Domination maps, what maps do you play?  I have noticed that some games where there are less players take longer to start (finding hosts and players which is fair enough) I wonder if it has anything to do with that
