consistanly every single god dam game... thier is a serious problem ... who ever else is on infinity and having this prob please add reply
speed, ping location, area
yup me too , its our fault for getting fiber
although that guy is full of sh!t because there is no way he can ping anywhere in the US at 25ms and if he is a network engineer WHY did he need guys round his house doing "every test possible" when he could have done it himself!!??
his vid is bang on though
feels like that buddy .. i hope they acknowledge they have a problem or atleast try and fix it... all i do now is turn black ops on .. no update i turn it off
there is one advantage to fiber , the wife can watch eastenders on catchup and i can still game with no lag
When will you guys ever understand that your total bandwidth means nothing in this game. Doing a speedtest is meaningless. This game does not now or ever use the full bandwidth ever. It never has and never will. So paying for a higher package does not gurantee or entitle you to a better game than anyone else.
While you are right, you are also wrong. Higher bandwith = more packet transmissions per second. ISP providers rate their provided speeds as a measure of TCP transmissions windows per second. More bandwidth means more windows, more windows means smoother/more consistent packet flow.
This game does not use TCP it uses UDP so any test that tests only tcp has no meaning at all towards why the game is perfoming as it is. Plus serveral companies throttle udp connections since that is the most common used protocol for file sharing and bittorrenting. Something most isp's do not like happening on their service even if the files are legal. Anif a isp is doing so it can cause negative performance with the game, since the game mainly uses udp for the game itself.
And that is not exactly accurate either, more does not always mean smoother if somehwere along the line the packets are getting lost or dropped because of the route having issues along the pathway. something that 3arc cannot control. So say if you were sending packets to chicago from dallas and one of the routers that was being used suddenly goes down, the route has to change, any packets sent during that time either are dropped or have to be resent, this causes instabilitiy in the line. And no isp can really control that. Those lost packets add lag and cause many of the wtf moments that some people have. Not all but some of them.
So buying a larger pacakge does not always equate to a better service or game play. So anyone trying to use their total bandwidth as any form of justification is not really helping the situation since the game does not use that ever.
In fact many of the smaller cheaper services actually have better stability than the larger isp's because of the sheer amount going over the larger isp is not seen by the smaller isp.
Fibre optic and cable is great for videos, music, and things of that nature, but does not equate to a better game in all situations where line stability and not speed are factors that can cuase the game to behave in erratic mesaures.
Bigger does not equate to better in this game.
actualy bandwidth doesnt matter about packets sent as the maximum packet size on the net is 1500bits thats your lot wich a 2meg connection can handle perfectly well
Do you have issues with other games? Fire up MW3 or something and find out.
In my case, my connection is fine.
Very informative video.
Hopefully people understand now and I do agree with him, the model does not work.
