Red Bar guys raping?

What's happened? I'm now seeing more games with players flunctuating between 4 green and one red bar who are unstopable. The majority of games the past few nights have had poor signal players/teams kicking  everyone's ass. Red bar going 36/3, really? The lag is bad lately but seeing redbar players consistently at the top of scoreboards is infuriating.

During the Fianl Killcam or during the game look at the scoreboard. Whoever has a red bar mark them as avoid when you are in the lobby.

Things have changed in the past few days to where you have less players getting into lobbies since they took the matchmaking and kept people from the same continent in the games.

My idea wont stop red bar players in the games but might help keep most of them from getting into your games.

Been seeing more of these red bar players the last few days too, along with a lot of two to three bar players now ever since the update, don't know if it's players with poor connection's set to "best" or something else?

I don't think thats how Best works. It trys to get the best connection for you personally.

It doesn't put people with the "best internet" in the same lobbies.

I found myself in quite a few games last night with players on both teams with just one red dot (Bar)  etr, and every now and then the game stalled and that little white connection image kept popping up, and just after i found myself on another part of the map after being shot , and several games during a game i tried changing class to suit how the gameplay was running only to find myself no matter how many times i tried coming back with just a rocket launcher and knife of which i dont even have as a class set up, strange things are going on with this game,

if the game stalled for you and then you found yourself respawning else where then it sounds like you have been lag switched

i would suggest going to theather and loking at those games , check who was highest on the lobby leaderboard at the end of the game and watch from there point of view , if you see people freezing before they get killed then that person was using a lag switch . report and move on !

I sometimes end up with a redbar when my connection drops. (The exchange near me is ancient)

When on a red bar, you cannot move, or do any actions, it simply bounces you back to where you were. Unplayable. This is when I get most of my deaths.

My connection will then pick up after a few minutes and I'll go back to dominating.

Red bar does not help, stop crying about it.

I've seen one guy with a legit red bar dominating because he had a shotgun and some serious luck. Bouncing all over the place, you couldn't hit him and his tons and tons of shotgun bullets would eventually make contact with you and bam, you're dead...
