I bought this game mainly for the multiplayer and after a week I can safely say that this game is far from playable. P2P connection just sucks, every host lags and it's unbearable.

The only matches that were okay were when I was a host, which brings me to another question - Why don't I get to be a host every single game? I have a 100mbit optical cable connection and I'm a perfect host, instead of that someone with a 128 kbit connection gets chosen every single time.

I doubt its your connection that means YOU dont get lag. I bet EVERY host gets smooth gameplay. Host advantage as its all the people connected to you who get the return data delay and that causes lag. Latency my friend. The host always wins p2p :)

Honestly, I can't name a game that's gone from pure P2P to offering dedicated servers.
I doubt that will change anytime soon.

I've been playing with my friend that confirmed the great latency when I was the host.

?? BF3, 2142 and BC2 were never Peer to peer game types.... they have allways been dedicated same going all the way back to 1942.

Agreed, what are you talking about?
All of those games had dedicated servers at launch.

I also hope Ubi will reconsider as this P2P effort is an abortion as far as I am concerned. BTW guys BF3 does use P2P on PC for CO-OP? The rest is DS.

Well yeah but that's different. We're talking about Multiplayer here.
Besides, dedicated servers for just 2 people is a bit overkill imo.
