Has there been any confirmed Lag Switching going on?

I had a game over the weekend where my team seemed to be paralyzed by lag while the other team was mopping us up.  It happened in the second half of a Dom game and it was brutal.  The other team definitely seemed unaffected by super jerky lag. This is not the first time but there has been other instances that I thought were suspicious.  At least one other instance, including this past weeked, happened on Slums.   Anyone else?

Nope. Go into theatre mate, and watch the connections. If everyones connection (apart from the host obviously) drops to 1 and then rises back up again at exactly the same time, then you found a switcher. If its not exactly simultaneous, then its just a crappy host. Could also be someone connection-nerfing *rolls eyes* cant wait til that myth is put to bed for good.

But yeah, check theatre. That'll tell you what you need to know.

I havent seen a lag switcher since Black Ops 1 I think it was.

It was obvious. The player always went 20 and 0. ALL the players would freeze in their tracks for a second right before the host got a kill..

Its very obvious when someone is lag switching.

Agreed here. If you've played enough of the titles it is very obvious. I have seen some in BO2 but probably no more than 4-5 I would guess?

People got smarter...after all the 5k day bans, hackers figured out that you have to get killed a few times per match and stop killing past a certain count. How else do you think people go 56 and 6? Noone is that untouchable.

No one goes 56 and 6 ? Really ?

Here is a full game where someone went 56 and 6 and NO lag switch.

Lag switchers arent that smart, hence the reason they lag switch. You dont have to see someone go 100 and 0 to prove they lag switched.

yea when I asked my friend about it, he said that it was more or less normal to see me play like that. His words not mine. Our beloved Forum mod Foxhound-pro is a beast himself. He can pull it off just as easily.

I saw the gameplay. One time you killed 3 people without reloading. It was cool.

I went 46-4 today playing TDM on PS3 and I would have scored better if only the limit is higher. The point is, it is not impossible to post a high kill game without using any cheats/lag switches. Many others have scored higher and even flawless 100+ games and they did it legit.
