GOW3 Matchmaking issues

After completing the single player campaign, over the weekend I tried multiple times to connect to a multi-player game online. Despite there being tens of thousands of players online, Gears was unable to find a suitable game to join. Regardless of the game mode selected, Verses, Horde or Beast the result was the often the same.

“No suitable matches could be found”.

After around 20 attempts, I finally managed to join one match. A 1 in 20 success rate really isn’t good enough, that said matchmaking never has been an exact art, closer to a black art. In this instance, it’s making reviewing this part of the game very difficult.

How has your GOW3 multiplayer experience been ?
