It looks like the Activision's Call of Duty Master Server is down. I first noticed it while trying to play at my friends house. When trying to refresh it just tells me "waitng for response from master server." I tried here at home, and I ran into the same problem. This seams to be a problem for both regular CoD, and CoDUO. Just wanted to let everyone know, that we're all in the same boat, it's not just you and your computer. Individual servers aren't down you can use GameSpy Arcade to get into a few servers, get it here http://www.gamespyarcade.com/ Also, there seams to be a lot of other people having the same problem that are on the GameSpy forums, check that out here http://www.forumplanet.com/planetcallofduty/topic.asp?fid=7128&tid=1636587 I've been searching the Activision website for some information in reguards to all of this, but as of now (10:13PM PST), they haven't said anything. Here's to hoping that the Master Server will be back up soon. P.S. I should also mention that for some reason that when you refresh "All" servers, it seams to not work. But when you refresh your "Favorities," it seams to refresh the servers just fine.
I was just about to come on here and bitch about the master server, but looks like you already answered my question. Jeez that shits me.
Alright it's now 1:20AM here on the pacific coast, and I've been doing a little more research into why the Master Server is down. Here, https://activision.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/activision.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=12890&p_created=1095445449&p_sid=gvxymQCh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PWRmbHQmcF9ncmlkc29ydD0mcF9yb3dfY250PTImcF9wcm9kcz0xLDM5MCZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9Mi4zOTAmcF9jdj0mcF9zZWFyY2hfdHlwZT1hbnN3ZXJzLnNlYXJjaF9ubCZwX3BhZ2U9MSZwX3NlYXJjaF90ZXh0PVNlcnZlciBtYWludGVuYW5jZQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1 Activision explains some of the reasons why you might be getting the "waiting for response from master server" message. It lists that the server might be down for server maintenance. It seams as though that might be the best explination, but I'm left miffied by the fact that Activision failed to tell anyone. I do belive that if the problem were to be a network outage, Activision would have the server up and running in no time, but it's been down for about ten hours now. If anyone might know a place where Activision is speaking about what is going on with it's Call of Duty master server, please do tell.

i had the same problem - it's up now.
i did install xfire, in an attempt to circumvent the problem, and was able to get in. cod and coduo, now work, without xfire as well.
Yes, you're correct, Activision's Master Server is now up. This problem is moot.
What are these damn animals?

Are you behind a router wisdom? If so have you allow the router to connect to ASE or Gamespy? You need to forward the ports. Have you done this?
