    I haven't played on Live for a while. I loaded up MechAssault today and tried to enter about 10 quick start games. Each time I got the "host has disconnected" message. I got frustrated and read a book. [​IMG]

    Is the host really quitting or is this a sign of my own connection issues? I've never had this kind of problem in the past.

    Just curious if this sort of thing is more frequent now?

    I could be both.

    If you're playing a team game, the host will quite a lot if people drop before the game starts.

    Have you downloaded the update for Live yet? It's not available for any particular game, but if you go into the Live dashboard without any games in the XBox it downloads automatically.

    I've heard that the update does not really address this problem, but I was having the exact same thing happen to me. I downloaded the update and problem disappeared.

    I've still been having a very tough time accepting invites to MechAssault lately, but I don't know why. For some reason, Ghost Recon is working better than ever. I dunno.[​IMG]

    I had that problem last night playing Ghost Recon and then it went away later on. I think it must have had something to do with the XBL service.

    I could sign in and get online, I could look at friends, and I could search for games online, but when I reached the point where it would try to get on a game, it would say "Connection broken" or whatever.

    It was wacky but hopefully a one-off.
