This is the message my friends and I get when we try to play online.
When I look it just says defcon 5 status.
Defcon 4: All Call of Duty: Black ops services are online, but due to recent server maintenance, status has been downgraded as a percaution. No service disruption is expected.
I still can't play.
It appears to be working now.
Just wondering if anyone else is getting this message. I am playing on xbox in Canada.Read more >

Notice - anyone who mentions anything about console differences will have their comments deleted on sight. If it keeps happening, commenting will be stopped. Use this blog to discuss the new map pack, not compare the two consoles or call me Hitler (lmao) --Callofduty4 18:18, February 1, 2011 (UTC)Read more >
