I'd compare it to the following:
-'Hey Doc, my throat really hurts lately. I think I have strep.'
-'Mhmm. You need an enema.'
-'What?! No. I said my THROAT hurts.'
-'Yeah. Drop your pants and bend over. You may feel a slight pressure.'
-'No dude, my throat suddenly feels much better. Let's leave things as they are.'
-'Ha! Nice try buddy, but I'm the doctor; I know what's best. This will fix everything.'
-....'OH GOD THIS IS SO MUCH WORSE!!!'
-'No it isn't. It's better now. I promise.'
It's obvious that the OP is an idiot. The update had NOTHING to do with lag improvement. The update was for an error that people were getting, which said, "download the latest dlc available to you to play online". They were gettin this message even though they already downloaded the dlc. This update fixed that problem.
I read something from a Mod that until everyone installs the update the game will be flaky. Its like trying to run the most up to date software with an outdated operating system. It makes sense...until you take into consideration that in order to play online you have to download the update. So in the end I have no idea
Yeah it's just a bad game.... Time for us all to concede to that fact...
We'll keep playing it hoping it might get better... but of course... it won't...
Just bad people in charge of this game... Incompetent people... There are far better game designers living in Los Angeles willing to do what it takes to make great games. IW does not have those people working for them...
