Did 1.03 screw up the lag compensation even more?

Did 1.03 screw up the lag compensation even more?

Since I've patched to 1.03 about 95% of my games were absolute shit. I was finally getting to know the maps, the guns and started to get my K/D up. Then 1.03 happened and it dropped from 1.51 to 1.24 in a few hours. I can barely get a positive K/D now ...

I'm not close to being the best player and my primary goal is to get objectives, so I don't care about K/D that much ... but this is just getting ridiculous. Everything seemed fine here with 1.02 but now I die with every fart thrown my way. In BO my K/D was around 1.9 and that was the first FPS I've played on console, so I know I'm not the worst player either ...

- Shooting people from point blank with a shotgun with lasersight in the chest: hitmarker, he turns around and 3 bullets later his MP7 (what else) kills me. On the killcam, it looks like I'm just running like an idiot without even shooting.

- Shooting first ADS in chest with any SMG/assault rifle, get owned by MP7 sprayer that aims for my feet.

- And on and on and on and on ...

Hard having fun like this, even if you don't care about K/D much ... Anyone else noticing significant changes with this since they patched to 1.03?

Oh, by the way: FIX IT TREYARCH!

I guess I should be grateful I don't get freezes anymore (but then again I didn't with 1.02 either), but it's now more unplayable/enjoyable then ever.

I wasn't doing very good to begin with pre-patch... just having some fun, learning the maps/guns...you know what I mean. But post-patch now that I kind-of know more about the game I am doing even worst.

Either everyone else is a faster learner..., or something with the patch affected something....

That's what I thought in the beginning: is my aim that off? Have they adjusted better then me? But I soon realised I couldn't be that crappy.

Just tried another fun game where it seemed to go fine again. Till the next round began: dying while behind cover and shots not connecting while they land a shotgun in my face from a mile away.

I'm done with this game for now ... Hope they fix it soon, 'cause I began to really like it when things worked normally.

Funny...  I have seen no difference in my game play from 1.02 to 1.03.

From a connection base, 1.03 made things much better (funny the 1st game I entered post-patch froze as soon as it loaded)

Maybe I am in the minority, but happy days!

OP this is exactly what i have been experiencing. I am pretty good player and whilst not to worried about KD i do keep an eye on it just to see but something has changed the game. Like I said I consider myself not a bad player but after patch this weekend i hardly went positive which isnt right especially as i opted for lower scorestreaks to help

Maybe after patch more people are online and the lag is becoming more noticable.
