If your internet connection is up-to-speed and you live in the states, you probably need to forward your port for the 360.

I don't know... I haven't had anything but a red connection since CS. CT's netcode was way better than the one in this game.

Either way, you can still find pretty decent matches with 0-1 connections.

i had one of the weirdest connections with a guy the other day. it was a 3 (green) connection, but there were a number of very short pauses during the matches, and it really affected gameplay. it kind of made it to where i couldn't really block or counter appropriately against the guy. aside from the pauses, the connection was great, which just made me even more frustrated.

anyway, i agree with the above poster, CT's netcode was great, but ever since CS, it's been pretty meh.

It's technically both. My ping to a server close by is as little as 17, allowing for 3/4 connection with people from the same state. Sadly, it can be as high as 200 on the other side of the county, making 0 connection games standard.

Since blazblue only has a very basic server set up, all the connections are peer-to-peer, making distance a huge factor in connection speed. Also, a lot of those 0 connection players might be from Japan, which would likely explain it.
