During peak time you got every little snot nosed kid connected to the game .

Problem is that these kids are using the 3G and 4G thumbsticks to run the games as well as quite possibly downloading porn or torrents.

I believe THAT is why during peak times are the worst.

Of course that also includes the over abundance of traffic you would normally have to expect on the information superhighway.

BTW Microsofts Matchmaking Servers handle hundreds of different games so why would you think they are swamped to handle just this game ?

Also, could it be possible that OPs ISP throttle bandwidth at peak times? I know Virgin did that to me for a while. Might be a factor.

Anyone who comes on here and claims that it is because of ones ISP that is causing all the problems, has lost all their marbles.  I play with 2 other people that live within 50 miles of each other and we have 3 different ISP's , and we all see the same things.

I think there are two differnt types of lag(or whatever) in the game and they are being lumped together.

1)Rubber banding, stuttering, connection interuption

and

2)Delay, and hit detection issues

Number 1 is caused by a bad isp/connection(either you or the host or both)

Number 2 is caused by something inherent to the game

Honestly, I think that those who believe the game plays well for them cut their teeth in the COD series on Black Ops 1 when most of the hit detection issues first arose.

The only reason they think the game plays fine is they didn't experience the smooth online gameplay of CoD4 and MW2.

I for one have high hopes for Respawn Entertainment, and will thoroughly disappointed if they don't put out a game that plays as smooth as the previously mentioned iterations of the CoD series.

Really well lets mw2 was made by the original iw team, guessing you dont remember the months of complaints about hit detection and matchmaking issues before it was patched then right?

So you do acknowledge that it was fixed, and was a more (overall) enjoyable experience than MW3 and now BO2?

This game plays like absolute doggy doo, and has been set aside for the red headed stepchild BF3. The Black Ops franchise has been the only entries in the series that don't play well for me, and I believe those that started playing COD with one of these 2 games don't realize how bad it really is. How can you know somethings wrong if you've never had better?

yes acknowledge it was fixed no dont agree it was a more enjoyable expereince than mw3 or this game,

I dont like mw3 and was very vocal as to its failings with netcode, and matchmaking . Saying that like bo1 and now this game i never experienced any issues past the odd bad connection to a host or abad host.

LOL I love the blur of time.

COD4 and MW2 had just as many issues. Just less media and you tube over load to point it out.

I have my share of bad lag games but over all 75% or more plays fine.

Let me clarify fine.

It's playable, it's COD. It still needs a major over haul. I
