Old Post. Actually game experience has gotten a lot better for me, but feel free to read, and have a laugh:
At this point i've had it with this game. My frustration has gone so far that i actually went as far as making another account on this Bug-filled elite service since i can't even access my other accounts, but yes, this is how frustrated i am with this game right now.
I've been following this forum since the game's release, basically i would pop-in every now and then to check if people were having similar issues with the game, and what do you know? hundreds of players were posting about it on the forum. Now before any sensitive treyarch fanboys come and start posting ignorant stuff like "Man up" or "there's nothing wrong with the game" or "deal with it", i say to you LEAVE THIS DISCUSSION, and STOP DEFENDING TREYARCH - Your gaming experience does not reflect that of everyone else. This discussion is for serious gamers who have been playing the game for a while but are/ have been struggling with this game due to several issues that it has.
To begin, i am an above avarage player. Why do i say this? i like some of you, have been playing call of duty for a while (since cod4), and in fact, i have been playing EXCLUSIVELY call of duty since COD4. i've had 2.0-2.4 KD in the past games with a 2.0 W/L because i have fun RUSHING and playing the objective. Now, that being said - i am sure like many of you were, upon announcement of BO2 i was really excited and hyped by all the BS trailers and all that, but i was HUGELY DISAPPOINTED.
I thought this game was going to fix the lag comp issues that MW3 had - obviously lag comp cannot be removed but make it even for BOTH SIDES - good connections and BAD connections. I am constantly being dropped before i can even react and put my sights on a guy. I am constantly getting killed after having turned corners, or after having taken cover because of the $hitty hit detection. It takes me 6 or more shots to kill someone while other players drop me in 2-3 shots. I knife people right next to me, yet somehow they appear 5 feet away from me turn and shoot me WTF!. I feel like i am a second behind because of how people can turn on me, see me, and shoot me while i had been empting my clip in to them, yet i still get dropped. Due to the lag, slow reaction time, and crappy hit detection, THE GAME FORCES ME to play defensively, but i don't have fun camping and waiting around, I RUSH around, yet in this game if i implement my playstyle I get destroyed.
I thought at first it was because i was new at the game and needed to learn it a bit more (even though everyone else was on the same boat), but after reaching 55 i understand that it's the game it's not me.
This is the only game that has gotten me this frustrated, this early. MW3 looks amazing compared to this. I'll admit it i was a bit frustrated about the lag comp in mw3 at times, but in this game it is just unbearable. To prove this i went back to Mw3 played 15-20 games and it was amazing gameplay - i'm talking about 3+ kds per game, and winning about 90% of the matches.
The only reason why i am posting this is so something can be done about the lag comp, delay, and hit detection problems in this game. If we stay shut they will never due crap about the issues. THIS GAME NEEDS MAJOR PATCHING. And until that is done, i will be probably be playing mw3.
Please post if you are having a similar experience.
