This happened to me last night. Literally 6 games in a row. The wierd thing was that it was affecting ALL players in the game. If you looked at the bars, every single person in the room was showing 1 red bar. This would last about 1 minute, and each time it was at the start of the match... then it would clear up.
From that point on 2-5 people would fluctuate 4 green - 1 red. In one game everything was fine, I hit a merciless streak then me and 1 other guy went 1 red bar... I tried to wait it out but I was killed and then it cleared before I respawned... very frustrating.
I have 25 mbps down and 3.75 up... never had any problems until last night.
They won't acknowledge a problem, it will just mysteriously fix itself at some point.
Seems like this may have actually happened with the hotfix. I'm not having the constant red bars for everyone anymore tonight...
I noticed this too. Never really complained about lag or had a problem with it until yesterday. The only time i can actually say the game was unplayable
