I am pretty sure there are a lot more people out there not suffering lag issues but so few people come here to post anything positve about the game that we very rarely hear from them.
I dont have any consistant lag issues either, the occaisional spike and still get the odd WTF moment but overall BO2 plays a lot better than MW3 and BO1 ever did for me..
I didn't play MW3, and have significantly upgraded my internet since playing BO1 but, as far as memory serves, this is much more consistently stable than any other COD title that I've played to date.
I remember cursing the Kill Cam in previous COD titles for lying to me (I've ALWAYS had issues with the Kill Cam), and the first thing I noticed when I played this game was that, while still not quite accurate, the Kill Cam seemed to be a much closer representation of what I actually saw than ever before.
That's not to say it's perfect, just that I personally don't experience any severe or persistent lag issues.
True its not perfect, but on a playability level its far better than MW3 and BO1, i have gone much further in BO2 than i did in the previous 2 COD's.
BO1 plays better than both MW3 and BO2 for me but it was a simpler game and they had a year to improve the MP. Hopefully, BO2 will improve as they tweak the Matchmaking but after reading the above, we may just be stuck with what we have.
Everybody experiences lag of some degree, some worse than others, that is fact. Whether you notice it or not all depends on what you do in game, i.e. fast run and gun or camping, and how well the lag compensation is coded. In BO2 the coding is appalling, giving the advantage to players with the poorest internet connections in the lobby. I have a medium to good internet connection which means I get good and bad games, simply depending on what the rest of the lobby has. That isn't luck though, that is down to Treyarchs match making system; which personally I think is as bad as the lag comp coding; appalling.
I rarely bother to watch the killcam, but if I did then I am sure I would see a different picture to the one I experienced. I suspect a lot of players dont bother to watch them either and possibly have no idea they should never have died. I've played enough to know when the enemy should have died, and when I am being screwed by the LC. But I have grown to just accept it for what it is and hope that it gets tweaked, but I'm not going to hold my breath. In the mean time when I am being screwed by LC I will invariably end up quitting, joining another lobby and hoping my connection with the host is a better one. When it gets really frustrating is when you have a string of games with poor host connection.
I can't believe that xbox has worse lag than PS3. PS3 has always been the "red headed step child" in terms of the CoD family. Plus, it's a port.
Occasionally I will get a connection where the game seems different, the player seems to move faster and in a much more fluid manner, all actions like crouch, reload etc are quicker. If the game was like this all the time for me it would be great.
However most of the time my character is sluggish and the game doesn't flow, I've played most of the previous titles going back to COD2. Treyarch games also have a slight framerate issue so if the connection is bad the problem of "LAG" is increased.
MW3 actually ran really well for me but the original Black Ops was poor (I don't think Treyarch games like me!)
The sheer amount of discussions on the boards indicate an issue, sure you get people talking the game down just for kicks, but I believe the majority are genuine complaints. ( the numbers don't lie)
Glad it's good for you ( sincerely)
yeah no lag here either, i wondered what all the complaints about too, only problem i got is with theatre which i just dont use right now as it freezes my console every time
Try looking at this and see for yourself what the problem ACTUALLY IS:
The game is totally BROKEN. This is before you even go online at all.. so it's not network LAG at all.. it is the game that is the problem and the only way it will get better is if treyarch fixes it!!!!!
