I always have a four bar I have great ISP verizon fios fiber optic. I constantly get out into games with people who are no where near me but I still maintain a 4 bar and I am always lagging way behind these people. I watch kill cam after kill cam where I'm seeing a guy and shooting him where my scre en says he is but in the kill cam it shows meshooting way off to the side nowhere near him he isn't in the same place in his game as he is in mine. I kno I kno lag comp buy I'm tired if having great connection all the time even though I'm connecting to god knows where and still being behind. I mostly end up getting into tons of lobbies with people from Puerto Rico or seems and in way up ob the east coast idk . Im done
Feel for ya
Recently I have found the game un playable. I never normally quit a game but recently I have started to and everytime I quit I find out I'm the game host. If I'm playing and I'm something like 1 -10 i know I'm host..I quit and the game migrates hosts.
I hate quiting games because I don't want to actually spoil it for everyone else, but where is the fun in just being cannon fodder?
The only way i can have some normal games is with a big party from my country. If one of us hosts we have almost no lag; and also if other people are not that far away - even hosting is not as bad.
As soon as the party is smaller and matchmaking does its magic, the game is same crap as always. Host lag; lag comp, seconds behind; shooting people in back - 180 boom you die; fire 20 rounds killcam shows you not firing at all; standing 5 meters away from your position in killcam...
Hopefully this will be sorted for July... Cause it's been like this from day 1 for me and its only coming up to 2 months.. It's like they r trying to alienate people... For me I have 1 good game(I shoot ppl first and they die) 9 bad games ( my gun has turned into a water pistol) Funny how treyarch/activision don't acknowledge this is happening... PS3 in DMZ IS NOT SAFE!! PORT FORWARDING DID NOT HELP ME!!
This is happening more and more now that the christmas noobs aka kids aren't back at school yet and they are online all tye time. Don't get me wrong the game has lagged for me ever since patch 1.03 but now it has gotten to a new extreme. I was on a holiday trip for 1,5 weeks and started playing again yesterday, only to notice that in most playlists and lobbies i get there are parties of children or teenagers enjoying massive lagvantage while i seem to shoot only blanks.
I'm also quite confident they will not do a dam thing about it, maybe they will try but they cannot patch something that is fundamentally broken. If they could, they would've fixed the 2 previous lagfests called BO and MW3 by now.
just watch out for those 2 or 3 bars fellows on the other team.
they will appear out of nowhere and kill you lol.
or you could be firing at them , only to see on killcam you never pulled the trigger lol.
i say just watch killcam.
if killcam and what you saw on your screen dont match , you could as well back out or be in for alot of frustration .
