Below is a write up on what to expect, I believe it was done by FourZeroTwo.( one of the IW guys that communicates with the public )

Hey Everyone –

I wanted to give you the heads up on a lot of cool changes coming to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer in the month of December. Before you ask, there is no ETA on these changes, most are included in the upcoming patch, with all the playlists stuff happening independently at some point in the near future.

All of these changes are thanks to YOUR direct feedback and suggestions through Xbox.com forums, emails, IMing me personally, and any other way you managed to get your feedback to us. So what can you expect?

Thanks again for your constant feedback and support of the game, keep in mind that playlists are constantly evolving, so everything is subject to change based on feedback and results. If we feel something isn’t fun or based on your feedback we’ll continue to change it up and I’ll continue to keep you in the loop.

Thanks everyone.

(The Playlist changes apply to both the 360 and the PS3 versions, but the PS3 will have different patch changes)

Wow that host thing will be great!!!! I can't tell you how many games I have had the host quit early and then I have to shutdown my 360 and restart the xbox live to get back into a game. Also it will be nice to party up with someone and not get the old could not connect with host error message everytime. I hope they fix this PDQ! That is the only gripe I have with this otherwise beautiful game. Note : Darthbagger please post below me saying how much this game sucks compared to gears of war. That never gets old for me. Rolling Eyes Wink
