Been about 6 weeks since I've played and I notice 2 new things about lag. First, the lag bars are off. Way off. I'm playing like I have 2-3 bars, yet it shows 4. Even better, I see others with the same issue. I kinda feel bad shooting someone so obviously lagging out, but better you than me.
Second, my Stingers won't shoot. Lock onto a target, get the lock indication, pull the trigger, and get "you must be locked on". Uh, you're telling me I'm locked on. Shoot the damned missle. This is a real pisser when you're shooting a helicopter, and they shoot you while you mash the damned shoot button. This happens maybe 50% of the time. Keep in mind I've maxed out my Stinger ratings. I like shooting down air support. I'm good at it.
Maybe related, not sure. I've noticed unkillable players. These guys rack up 30-40 kills a game without air support, only die 3-4 times, and when you run across them you can't get a hit, let alone a kill. I don't think they're cheating, I think they're on the right side of the lag curve.
Like, WTF? Is it time to sell this PoS so I'm not tempted to put it in anymore?
