The title update for Black Ops 2 which went live yesterday for consoles fixed a few issues, but none of them are matchmaking related according to the full patch notes.

The title update on Xbox 360 weighs in at 26MB and focuses on improvements to Live Streaming and CODTV, as well as fixes for the Escort Drone, Dragonfire and FHJ-18 glitches among other things.

We have heard conflicting reports of improved matchmaking from South African gamers, but we suspect now that it was more coincidence than anything else.  Come on Treyarch sort that out for your SA fans… before they stop being fans.
