There is no incentive for people to have a good speedy internet anymore.  With them going overboard on lag compensation, people with poorer connections and speed have the advantage.  This needs to be reversed.  Lag compensation is never going away, but it needs to be tweaked so that hosts and speedy connections have a very small advantage, otherwise the lagfest will continue to get worse and worse.  I am not even going to mention the lag switches.  It is really a shame.  If they came out and said that we are going to change this to give people with better speed and connections a slight advantage, you just watch how much better things would get.  No more hosting complaints, people would no longer modify router settings or run torrent downloads while playing.  The company needs to wake up and create the incentive for good fast internet not slow laggy connections.

The issue is people such as your self.... You have a MINIMAL of 400ms of latency on 4g.

You have a bad connection because of 2 reasons (most likely)

1. The game is making to play with people that are not local (not even close) and so you won't be able to connect to them as well.

2. There is a feature called Lag Compensation that is coded poorly and needs to be tweaked. I think it also has to do with the game making people host based on bad logic.

Idiot.. 3 bar is the standard connection if you're not the host. The host gets 4 bars, everybody else gets 3 bars (if he's good)

this is completely untrue. Everyone in the lobby can have a 4 green bar connection if they all have a good ping to the host. And you're calling others idiots?
