If you stay out of core that will solve most of your frustrations. I suffer from unplayable lag in core, while others don't, no clue why, I just stick to HC now.

Oh HC is hardcore, sorry guys.. Yeah I've tried both. HC is bad for me too... Normally play HC TDM but even that is frustrating.

Worst for me is core kill confirmed. Very laggy..

I can get 30-10 and still be pissed off purely because of the lag. Just not fun..

I'm not here to make a fuss, just really disappointed with what I've dealt with since November 2012 when I purchased bo2.

As said, no one really cares..

But if people (and I know there's a lot out there) vented their frustration, maybe someone might take notice and fix the lag comp issues. One person can't make a difference, but a community might. Don't let the game makers take your hard earned money and run. Make them support the customers! $80 per game and the manufactures can't implement dedicated servers? So we suffer from hosts with poor connections? Just not right..

I never even played the campaign till a few months ago.. Now I've completed it, it's a $80 door stopper.

Btw as a community, you guys rock

yh... the problem is you

if you even get mad at a game where you go 30-10 so a game where lag probly wasn't really the issue, then the problem is somewhere with you

on what do you even base of the fact you're lagging ?

and do not say killcams, as everyone knows those aren't accurate

heck even the devs won't take those seriously and only accept videos made with a capture card for lag proof

and i have to say, this game has been like nearly every other game for me online

i did have laggy games in MW/WaW/MW2/BO/MW3 at times also, just like i have here, but also have plenty of normal decent games

don't forget you're playing online

there will always be some dafuq moments when you play online

and dedicated servers don't stop lag, all they do is stop host migrations/dashboarders

still a big chance if there's no server near you you'll be hitting a high ping

And where do you come off saying its me? I'm the one in front of my console playing the game. Not you. If I'm lagging and it's clearly obvious to me and others at their machines what more you want me to say? Ok yeah I'm crap at the game so I'm just making this crap up...? Lol

So I'm on adsl2+ with low latency profile 15-20 ms ping and it's me?? Hosts leave all the time, people red barring and it's just me?

Dedicated servers WILL reduce latency between other uses. Use your brain

Take your negative comments elsewhere. People like you who help cover up the main issues and nothing gets done about it! We are not all kids like some.

oh lord you have alot to learn on how things work i see allready

it's just the plain truth

and i come to that conclusion that a game where you go 30-10 NO WAY can be as laggy as you wanna make us believe

and nope dedi's do no such thing

and ping is variable, distance is a great factor, just bleering i have a 15/20ms ping is ignorance at it's best, how about trying to ping a server further as 30miles away from you ?

Apparently I should note allready is suppose to be already...since we have grammar conscious members here..

Now I never said I get 30-10 all the time. I said I can play a game and achieve that score at times, and still not be happy with the game play (rushing, jerking, ect..)

And I did say my ISP profile is 15-20 ms to give you some idea on my profile. Normally you would expect 60-100ms on a normal high speed ISP connection. Then add latency to connect to a host.

Lol 15-20 ms to a host? Right..

Read between the lines

ah you did however say that if you go 30-10 you still get frustrated as you say it was lagging

which is a miracle if you pull a 30-10 game then

and like i said, what you said about your ping is totally neglectable, you have no clue how far the host is away from you, so you could easily be pinging him at 90ms orso

also just no, i have a highspeed connection also, i ping 2 country's further in around 22/25MS, so to say that those highspeed connections should expect an 60ms ping the least is again just plain ignorance

your ping isn't stable during the game, have the slightest clue how the internet works ? then you know that

wtf moments are bound to happen when you play online, on every game,

and there's tons of other reasons the game plays that bad for you

for all you know your isp packet shapes, which will have a terrible impact on a game

LOL... your great internet connection means nothing on consoles... this game does not ever use your full bandwidth and never has in any of them. A dsl connection is more than enough to play the game. There is no minimum to play this game online, just need to meet the minium for xbl and that is all and ever will be.

Dont buy the next game, the devs will not miss you for someone else will take your place.

All fps games online have lag compensation and always have and always will. So that is not going away just because you do not like how it affects the game when you play it.

I agree. And you know what? I won't buy the next cod because it will have the same problems. I may rent it and complete the campaign over a weekend. That's about it. Unless someone pulls their finger out. Remember the counter strike / half life games on pc with local dedicated servers? That was the best!

The problem I see with this game is poor connection from people using the inbuilt or adapter based wifi to connect.. While still on a shared network.

Then have 5-11 other players connect to this host and suffer with lag or host leaves from poor connection.

It's not the game itself, it's the way you are forced to connect to a poor host most of the time!

Now lets do a trace route from my console to the host and send multiple packets to it. Guess how many packets are lost!? Now do it from 11 consoles to the host and see the results.
