Lag Issues

When are you going to fix the lag compensation system? Because it is getting rather irritating when I get instantly killed by someone who has a slight lag it's like I am playing hardcore only I am not or when I shoot almost an entire clip at someone and get enough hit markers to kill them but then suddenly I get instantly killed by them and I watch the kill cam and they fired an entire clip at me and took longer then a second to kill me. Also when are you going to fix the match making? Because I keep getting laggy hosts when ever I play and my internet speed is higher then average. Also when is the spawn system going to be fixed as well? Please any feedback from any of the devs will do I just need to know when so I can finally be killed by some skill and not lag especially when I get the first shot it's just getting irritating that's all.

    Hello Adam12345678,

     

    What console are you playing on?

    • Re: Lag Issues

      Xbox 360

      • Re: Lag Issues

        How are you connecting your XBox 360 online, Adam?  Are you connecting wirelessly, wired to your router, or hard-wired to your modem?  Also, what region are you playing in and who is your ISP?

          I play on PS3 with 30mb service from Charter Cable. I'm hard wired into the Netgear modem/router but the PS3 is always slower than my pc and I get only 3 bars of connection on Nat type 2 with open connection but lags most of the time. I have contacted Charter but they can't or won't help.

           

          When I google the subject, people are suggesting all sorts of things that I'm not sure would help or make things worse. What do you suggest? Most people aren't computer experts and I shouldn't have to be after I've paid  over $130.00 for the game with elite.

           

          It would seem that if we can put a man on the moon and read a lisence plate from space, someone could make a video game that works properly online and especially after making as much money as they do on 1 game.

            "after making" that is the key phrase! How much more would they make for fixing a game that only has 6 months left? They have no incentive to fix this mess. They have made no improvement in the last 6 months,...they will continue this until the next game comes out. PERIOD.

              The Call of Duty/Modern Warfare series continues year after year and Black Ops 2 is coming out after this. I think the problem is with PSN throttling back players with higher speed internet. I guess it's gonna take people not buying the game anymore because they are tired of the lag issues.

    Lag compensation sucks... seemed like for what seemed like forever until I switched back to a wired connection. This game was practically unplayable prior to that. Now lag compensation seems to happen a lot less then it normally did. It's a shame, I have no problems playing any of the other call of duty's wireless. What we really need is a local only option. Fantastic choice on the developers end not including this.

        Thanks, it helped even though my up and down are still not what they should be for the service I have. Any improvement is still an improvement so I'll take it.. Thanks for the info!

    ELITE_Help gives the same bullsh!t answer to everybody who has lag problems.

    This game is lagging because the system they use for matchmaking does not work.

    We know it and they know it so cut the bull and fix it
