    Some people know how Hosting works on Xbox Live but most people don't. If your one of the people who don't, id advise you read this carefully. Most games on XBL have a player dedicated connection. What this means is, Xbox Live or the game your playing chooses who has the best connection out of everyone playing with or against you in that game, as the host. If you have a good connection with an open highway, then most likely you will be given host majority of the time. What i mean by an open highway is; your router has open ports so that other players in the game can connect easily. The reason why host is so important is simple. if you're the host of the game, everyone has to connect to your xbox. meaning, you have an advantage over everyone in that game. You use certain factors of the game to your advantage. You also don't have to worry about lagging! If your play someone from across the ocean, your connection is generally very bad. The game can't be played normal because of how laggy the connection is and most of the time you'll end up losing. But if your Host, then you dont notice the lag, because the other players have to connect to YOU!

    Disadvantages of NOT being host
    ~Grenades are thrown slower
    ~You may have to reload your gun twice
    ~your shots don't register as fast or accurate
    ~you may play bad because you are lagging

    Advantages of being Host
    ~Grenades can be thrown faster
    ~You don't have to reload your gun twice
    ~Your shots register faster and more accuratley
    ~You don't lag
    I was about to write a rant about dedicated servers, and xbox live, then i re-read what you said. But what I put in bold is not always true. If your connected to a player that has a varying connection from Great to Terrible, it will mess everything up.
