has played the same for me. pre and post patch(with hotfix). nothing in the patch has changed connection or lobbies. so why do you think it is the patch? i would like to know your deducting reason.
its probably somethign like this:
nothing has changed except for $patch
patch is problem
when in fact there are many factors that go into why you are having an issue. there are many people who play this game. there are many lobbies which you can connect to. there are people(in play) when patches are propogated. those people would be forced to update ONLY AFTER a match. so, how do you know:
you didnt run into those types of people
you didnt run into people with crappy connections
your ISP didnt have intermitent issues when you where playing
HOW DO YOU KNOW?
you dont. so what do the ignorant do? they blame things that they percive as change, when those things that changed, didnt change the things that caused them the problems to begin with.
this type of thinking will not get you very far in life. my suggestion to you is to learn as much as you can, then you will understand the "magic" of the world better.
I love how a patch that did nothing for online lag issues ruined peoples gameplay
Trust me... I'm at a loss.
I will admit before the update I was getting my ass handed to me for two weeks. But that was during daytime gameplay.
So have you stopped playing in the daytime then ? or are you seeing a difference even though you still play during daytime ?
Just finished a 3hr session. First 2hrs decent, only a few players per match that were 'way ahead' of me. Then 8pm est comes and as always, completely unplayable. Tonight though there was a twist...my last 3 games had multiple players from argentina/japan/canada. WTF!! Im in texas with 50/5 connection, setting for best.
bmf, I am in Texas as well and get paired with Canadians a lot. Interior Mexico often. Regular enough with overseas players to take note. These usually, French, Japanese and Scandinavian. The one outlier recently was a Turkish lobby. Regardless, they are tough to shoot.
Istanbul is one of the great cities in the world don't get me wrong- I just don't want to play online games with the residents.
I've encountered alot more freezing and black screens between games since the update. KD's are still roughly the same.
Connection wise, not much difference. It's still s**t. I can't be bothered moaning about the connection anymore. Treyarch are a incompetent studio and they refuse to see there is a problem, never mind fix the problem. Title updates are pointless updates that fix the calling cards for the Peacekeeper, and Hotfixes are a total lottery about if the game will be playable today. Things that people care about, they will never fix. All I can say is don't work yourself up over updates anymore, it's not worth it.
Can someone explain why the game plays fine for me no matter what time of the day or night it is or if I join my bros session across the country? I have a 50 mbps connection, connect via wifi, and live in Boise. I play the previous titles just fine too. Is it cause I play HC? I have always thought HC plays smoother, yes I experience lag but not enough for it to mess up my game. I never see an advantage or disadvantage when I'm host either, I just play and if I get a wtf moment I just move on. Is it becauseI don't run around without caution? No I don't just sit in a corner, been playing for years. I just don't get it.
