If you’re having long wait times or inability to find games when matchmaking (or attempting to) in MW3, especially in a low-population country, then respond and provide answers to the question below.
The developers are working to improve matchmaking in all regions and on all platforms, and this will help them in their goal.
When matchmaking, in the top-right section of the screen it will have text explaining the process. What is displayed to you while matchmaking?

- Does it ever say “Trying to join game”?
