I play Solo and always have 4 bars, but half the lobby is always at 3 bars . I get the insta-kill deaths a lot. I have been finding a few more okay lobbies, before I was getting insta killed in every lobby now its about 70-80% of lobbies. Today I decided to try and play and I was beasting with the M27, got a vsat & lodestar in KC, and of course 4 players from the other team left. The 4 guys that joined were all 3 bars, and they proceeded to destroy me and the whole team. We were up 70-40 and they came back and won 100-98, the whole team was invincible. I was 30-3 before they joined and ended up finishing 38-18.

Ive experienced plenty of that. We'll see an entire team quit out and have a new team join who simply cant have enough bullets put into them to kill them.

I spent a lot of time optimizing my connection trying alternate combo's  the faster i made it the worse "lag compensation" got. So i decided to try going the other direction switched to wireless.. using dd-wrt firmware i was able to get my ps3 connection down to 9mbs down 4up. wow what a change Lag comp was still present but dramatically reduced from my previous attempts using 35down 10 up

Lag compensation at it's finest -.-

To explain this: is like to have two cars. One is a dodge viper team oreca, a rally car with powerful engine and everything, on the other side we have a fiat 500, a crap a** car. Well, for lag compensation the fiat 500 wins against the viper -.-

so who has a good connection gets raped, oh COD logic...

If one of you has the ability to reduce your connection to say 3up 1.5 down. could you post the results provided you were previously running far faster.

Using QoS to limit the amount of bandwith to your console will not make a difference, it's all about latency, not about bandwith. Someone on a low bandwith connection using a properly set-up quality router can be having as much issues as someone who has fios. More bandwith does not mean that the connection is going to have less latency, which is the basis of the whole lag / lag comp and matchmaking.

If you notice any difference by limiting you bandwith, the only reason for that would be that you no longer get host. Hosting seems to give you a huge disadvantage in terms of lag, same as it did in MW3. One of the factors they use in choosing the host is testing the upload bandwith, if you limit yours there might be people in the lobby who have more, and therefore you don't get host that often and feel less affected by lag.

Some might note a difference between wireless and wired, which again is all down to latency. You might have some interference, poor wifi quality router, or distance between the devices that increases the latency at your end and makes the games compensation system work better for you.

Switching to another ISP or connection type can make a huge difference, in other words obtaining a connection that has poor line quality (more latency "built in") will mostlikely make your gaming experience in CoD better because they cater to a huge community and have made the decision to aim to get as many people online as possible while trying to level the playing field, which unfortunately means the ones with a decent line quality and low pings will have a poor experience because they try to level things out for the ones on wifi stolen from their neighbour.

I noticed something tonight, EVERY time i changed a class in game I got the freeze/connection interrupted combo. Every time.

In other news lag was still unbearable 7/10 matches. Getting paired with more and more french canadians who end up host when my whole party is western new york, eastern ohio, and one in virginia. Seriously?? the guy from Quebec hosts and sends everyone into the bouncing 3 and 4 bar dipping down to 1 and 2 bars at key moments in game.

Makes the game completely non competitive. Most games tonight my whole party would start freezing at clutch moments, handing the game to the other guys who conveniently get to kill in one shot from their SMG's.
