Does anyone have any idea why this game likes to choose me to host games? I'm based in the UK i have a (up to) 8 mb connection with a crap (up to) 400kb upload speed. I have opened the ports in my router to get a better connection but that is more for connecting to others not for hosting as my upload speed is very poor compared to other ISPs.

That said for some reason i become host 9 times out of 10. This could be down to me just having a better connection than others i thought. So i put it to the test. I set a couple of my recent torrent downloads on upload only and let them go nuts. This should basicly make my connection look like the worst compared to any other persons connection. Yet still i was made host of a public horde match. Everyone was lagging (including me a little) to the point where the other 4 players couldn't even kill anything.

Does the program that chooses a host only look at downloading speed even though upload speed is the important part?

Please don't get me wrong i love being host and having 0 lag to contend with but why does it pick me over others with better connections? Like my friend (also from the UK) that has a 20 mb connection with 5 times the upload speed i have?

Who do you have to sleep with to get an answer around here?

It's a randomly chosen generator.

You're just lucky, Nuff said.
