Here's a topic from the Xbox forum that should be here as well.
Here's the vid
It's already been posted. "Best lag comp proof ever" or something like that.
I know, but seeing as this shit forum does not allow stickys or the ability to go back through posts, coupled with the fact people still seem to think there is no lag comp and that the host don't have an 150ms head start I thought I would put it in the light again!
the video is good, but it still adds confusion to what lag compensation actually is. it does, however, illustrate the serious lag issue in the game.
I have showed this vid too friends I play regular with, since watching it they can now see how bad the game is. Before they could not see or explain why there games were so inconsistent.
Been host(depending on skill and play style) is a massive advantage.
The host will always see you first, shoot first but will get killed more when taking cover.
Um, not true. Being host doesn't help me at all (and I'm not the only one). When I am host, I get constant frame drops and people skip all around the screen. 150ms doesn't help at all if I shoot at someone who skips 5 feet in every frame I do get to see.
host advantage........lmao how many magic mushrooms have you and your friends consumed?
Like I said, the vid does show how the game can be inconsistent with connectivity and lag, but that is not lag compensation.
I can't watch the video (at work ), but if Dingby is talking about COD4 or MW2 then yeah hosting was good. But anymore, it is like a plague, I avoid it at all costs...
No it's black ops2 inherent lag while networked and online breakdown and then compared to mw2.
Watch it you will be amazed how much lag is in the game is before taking into account latency of individual players.
