I went to bed last night with someone else's combat boot well and truly lodged in my ass. What the hell happened I got owned. I had never noticed it until you guys brought it up

Me too, it was frustrating enough I quit playing a whole hour before Walking Dead came on.

Spawn trapped in two different games, and folks kept dash boarding leaving me solo or nearly solo 4 times.  It is not easy to survive 6 on 1 playing Blitz.

Wreaked havoc on my k/d ratio..…not that it is that good to begin with.

At the same time I also was involved in two epic rounds of Blitz......probably the two most enjoyable Blitz rounds I have ever been in.

11pm Sydney = 7am US Central (Minnesota) time. I assume you are playing in local lobbies so the comparison would be to our nighttime games rather than 7am.

Since you posted this thread I've been unscientifically noting my own experiences. Being self-employed and working with people in China, Europe and New Zealand my "morning" and "night" hours can be opposite most here. Some days I wake up at 11pm central fresh, other days it is normal like today, 6am. Since I start my mornings at different times I can eliminate fatigue at various hours as an absolute factor.

What I am seeing is weekdays after around 7am central either there aren't alot of good players on or there are more average to below average people playing. I'm definitely average to below average so I notice right away when suddenly I am playing "good" compared to many others. Evenings seem to be a crapshoot depending how many 8 year olds and/or groups are in the lobbies. After say 10 or 11pm I think quality of play goes up. I'd guess most that are on this late at night are more dedicated players combined with the kiddies being in bed for school.

I'd have to say sofar that my experience seems to match the OP and others who have posted.

Evenings in most areas are when players can get together with their friends and lay down beatings.  If you are playing solo, you probably notice this and if you aren't, you are playing with your friends and know this already.  Evenings are just the time when most people are off work/school and have their free time to play.

Now for the opposite scenario, you have the YouTube commentator's secret weapon:  I have randomly jumped online in the morning before going to work (6-8 AM MST), gotten into lobbies that are horribly weak and posted flawless 25-30+ kill TDM scores right away.  I think you end up playing mostly against kids that are home sick from school.  You have to hit that soft spot after the stoned gamers have passed out and before the unemployed gamers get on.

Yep i play after hours as well, between 10pmcst to about 5am and get in lobbys with some of the people i underlined for you. ITs differant after hours than the day. I can get a KEM during the day, than at night because of all the newbies and kiddies that love to just kill whore a objective game.

online play is easy in day time because you have 100,000 children thrown into the mix lmao. The game slims down to its nightly crew after midnight est meaning more full groups , clans , and less easy kills running out in the open shooting ( never with a silenced weapon either).       

THe lag increase the later you get because the Ausi and euro trash get host And that's when I turn game off ....

Great topic.

You cant really tell someone not to smoke and zone out because its an unfair advantage.  You can tell them, but it usualluy doesn't do a lot of good.

I don't think that is the issue though.  Its speed.  When I watch the killcam, and the guy shooting me sits there and duh, duh, duh, duh, .....THat wasn't what I was saw.  If fact I was already behind the trash barrel, or a spilt second was dropped.

Its speed, and if they want to make the fair game they will correct it.  If its a bunch of people on a hosting a game, why does my game join up with it?  I would rather wait for a game in the lobby.  Not that that works either.

Each game I counted at least a few wrongful deaths, but when you add up tons of games, your k/d isn't right.

THen you get people talkin trash about you suck, and my take on it is look at your speed and look at the game.

I still think they should have the connection speed listed, so that when the trash does start talking, you can just point at it and go really, cause that aint what I saw.

Way too much time spent on figuring out if the weapons are balanced or not, because that should have been done before it released.

I even look at how many peole it shows online, and count how many players in the playlists and they don't add up.

I have never really understood cheating.  What do you take away from it?  When I was a kid, I didn't even really use the cool cheat codes with mortal combat and contra.  So it doesn't mean that there are a lot of cheaters, you just need to break down what is condsidrered cheating and what isn't.

If you know that you are doing something wrong, then its probably cheating.  Enhacing your speed somehow on a game, .....

DO you really walk away with a victory?  seriously, knowing that you gave yourself an advantage so you could have some fun mowin?  YOu can do that with skill.

THen theres those are good, or decent, but just have a faster speed, and don't lag as much.

The way I look at it is if it aint fare, Im gonna camp out for a second, or slow down and cover my field of fire a bit.  I don't like getting dropped with unfair advantages.
