Double XP weekends are the time when I focus on class setups that can get me as high of a SPM score per minutes as possible.  I don't care about K/D during double xp.   I like to rush around and spam EMP grenades and wreak as much havoc as possible.

Yeah,I have been on probation 10 times in a row now. I will not play in a POS lag filled game. SO I keep dashboarding. Like probation is going to stop me. They fix the fuckinggame no more dashboarding.

Well, here is my deal with 2 XP weekend. When you mix in skill based matchmaking and the more people being on at 1 time, the more likely you are going to be placed against players that are just as skilled, or more skilled than you. So, seeing your K/D ratio drop, while disconcerting, is explainable. Now, the whole additional lag thing that most people complain about, and I know you didn't, is a little more difficult to explain and I can't even explain it because with the additional people being online, it should be easier to find those that are at your skill level and are close to you. So, lag should actually be less noticable, especially seeing as how we don't use dedicated servers or play on a sandbox server. I'd like to know why we get more lag on Double XP weekends.

Is it you ? If so, please stay offline during DblXP so it doesn't suck for the rest of us. LOL

I'd say the lag is far worse than non DblXP days but then again, you get DblXP. I guess it depends on which is worse to you.

To me, I could care less about which prestige I am on. I just hate laggy games.

No you are right all the shite connectors who turn on Netflix and god knows what else  mid game come out to play. Stewth some even connect through through iPhones on hotspot.....laggity lag lag..

Lag goes up as does frequency of host migration and server drop outs,.......and unjustified probations.
