Why do so many people got Host Lag wrong?

Host advantage is a thing of the past. People do realize that if you are host, it is a death sentence.

Why do you think there are so many host migrations?

Because the person who was host, knew he was lagging, leaves game, and viola, host migration.

I know its been said, but the main issue that needs to be fixed, is lag, lag compensation, the usual.

Lag compensation cannot be removed, it has been around since forever.

I just believe that instead of adding more recoil and hip fire spread to all smg's, buffs, nerfs, other stuff,...

They should work on this.

I know I speak for alot when I say this..

More people are concerned about the games playability with regards to lag, than anything else.

Set your mtu to 1300 ps3 and limit your upload as low as you can on router QOS and play wireless and hosting is a thing of the past....If they can artificialy use lag compensation........i can artificial modify my game play.

Been there, done that, although it cuts down the chance of being host, it doesn't guarantee you wont be, as I found out.

It was the same in BO1, for some host was a blessing, others a nightmare.  Must be a Treyarch thing.

Other than MW3 (for me), being host is truly great. Everything runs so well, it's just pure perfection. A smile always forms on my face when I find out I'm the host.
