Game matchmaking in MW3 is the fastest I've seen (includes not just BF3 but also GoW and Halo).

Multiplayer

Wait for the complaints about network performance in multiplayer; that'll be along next.

Hopefully they learned something from Black-ops. I basically stopped playing, it was so bad.

BLOps was Infinty Ward.

IW and Activision take it in turns to release COD titles.
