Whatever they do, trialstardragon, I just wish they would make bigger maps for future COD games. Uprising has small maps, period. The spawning is only worse because of the small maps Treyarch has been making for BO2.
On Nuketown, you can snipe from the doorway of your building to the spawn spot of the other team. There's actually a direct line of fire to that spot. That's bad map design in my opinion.
That I agree with, small maps are worse for this game because it causes players to spawn too close to each other and can be killed quicker. It needs maps the size of WaW maps. where it took time to cross from one side to the other and not just 30 seconds or less, like on some of maps in the game now.
Battlefield 3 has dedicated severs and is far superior to BO2 because of it. I even put down COD to go to Battlefield cause it has no stupid bullet lag or lag compensation. This way when I shoot the noob he actually dies and doesn't run through an entire clip of bullets dead on and not get a single hit marker on him. Trust me dedicated servers would fix all problems with COD online play.
BF3 does have lag, and a lot of it at times. Feel free to go check out their forums (beware of the bronies).
You're absolutely right, YoureDoinItWrong. The difference is, when one has lag, everyone has pretty much the same lag experience. There's no bogus Lag Comp to steal speed from one player to help out another player with a cheaper connection.
I don't know what the last patch was for, but ever since then the spawning has gotten even WORSE. I didn't think that was possible. Today, I was on Standoff and I spawned next to the tank on the south side of the map. The enemy was on the other side of the same tank. So it wasn't long before I was on the ground twitching that wonderful COD twitch we do when we go down.
I'm sorry, but this is by far the worst COD since Black Ops 1. I didn't like that one either. And like BO1, I can't stand the maps Treyarch has come up with. I think 80% of the suck.
If COD had dedicated servers there would be benefits for everyone.
1. I would play based on my own connection. If there's lag, I would wait for a patch from Trey/IW to fix the lag, as they do on BF3. And if there's any remaining lag, I know that would be on my side.
2. Players could pick a teammate to spawn near, opening the door to bigger maps, hence LESS camping.
3. With bigger maps, snipers would be just as happy as every other player type.
The game does not steal speed from one player. You obviously have no idea what lag comp is or how it works in the game.
They cannot ever completely remove lag from the game ever, there is always lag on online games all games online have lag and always will.
Dedicated servers do not remove lag, they only fix host dashboarding. BF3 has just as much lag as CoD does at times and worse sometimes too depending upon the server that is available to play on.
Treyarch will never spend money on their customers let alone fix the issue they are like bad teachers who never want to admit somethings wrong or they did something wrong. This lag is because of Lag Compensation because these issues didn't exist until Black Ops 1. Halo is also Peer to Peer servers as well and they run way better hell Halo even runs better then Battlefield 3 so a dedicated server is not needed what they need to do is ask Bungie for help with their network since Bungie works for Activision now anyways. Bungie and 343 actually know how set up peer to peer servers correctly so that lag switching and lag issues don't even exist so yea. I am not a fanboy either I just notice there is a difference between Halo and other First person shooters. Halo 1 through Halo 4 is how you set up a network. Call of Duty's network is so bad that there is no such thing as killing each other at the same time with bullets. They need to wipe their network clean of any tweaks or lag compensation and start from scratch.
Also to anyone who keeps saying that the OP is just some garbage player thinking he should be a god just because he has the better connection that is not the case all he is just like me. We do not think that we should be faster we just think that laggy players shouldn't have an advantage over someone with an average or above average connection it's annoying when someone who has 3 bars or less and they are untouchable because the network is overcompensating for them. They need to fix the tweak they did so the game is actually playable again.
You can buy an internet pump and hook it up to your modem so you can pump lag out of your lobby. The Manuel pump is cheap but requires a buddy to help you out but the electric one is phenomenal!
I couldn't agree more, i hate playing when all i here is 8 year old boys swearing and whinning
