That is correct. Watch the video I posted. What you've described is affected by how much latency you have depending on the host that is chosen for that match. If you have a REALLY fast connection to that host, you will be affected more. If you have an average connection to that host, the lag comp. applied to you will be less, affectively evening you out with others.
If your connection is terrible, the max lag comp. will be applied to your opponents and affect you much less. This explains how some rounds you can go 20-3 or 34-10 and then the next round, have a 4-bar connection and go 9-25. You got paired with a strong host and had max lag comp. applied to you.
The video really is a great watch, even if the guy commentating sounds like he's on tranquilizers.
I have had to turn the game off to save my controller going through my tv.......Its more luck than skill today....will they die on one on one or not mainly not................adjust the lag comp ffs please.......
I agree with this. I'll have and amazing game winning multiple of 1 on 1 fire fights then the next game comes and suddenly I'm losing every single 1 on 1. I highly doubt I'm having massive reductions in my reaction times routinely when playing back to back games.
Whole issue just comes down to the company trying to do cheap little BS patches instead of actually spending money and having its own servers.
In other words.. improving the players experience is wayyyy down on the priority list compared to making sure the companies spending isn't increased.
Where you you been since FPS multiplayer was invented? There will always be some latency, and it is Treyarch's job to balance it correctly in BO2.
