So here is my connection: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2241740467.png.
What I want to know is this an appropriate connection for MW3 because I feel like everyone kills quicker than me, I get shot round corners. I slowed my P90 down in the vault and up close it took 8 bullets and he still didn't die.
Check the ttk's of guns. That is the total timed kill without bullets missing. Compare it to your ping and that will give you reaction time. Factor in your gun and you've got a decent indicator of how well you will win a firefight.
From what I can tell from your connection (pretty good connection), you are at a huge disadvantage because of Lag compensation.
Lag compensation is punishing you for having a good connection and rewarding players with poor connections, I myself suffer from this crap in 90% of my games.
Search it on google/youtube, theres lots of information out there.
Your upload is horrendous, but it shouldn't effect your gameplay unless you are using any other device at the same time.
How is that a good connection? I would think from thou's results he would be on the good end of lag. what game mode does the op play? is it a very low population game mode? I say its a bad connection because the lowest cable connection is can get is 30/d and 4/u. I normally pull 50/d and 4.5-5/u and i would say that is a decent connection. I know a lot of cable companies like charter, cox, roadrunner, comcast, timewarner. etc their lowest is 30 meg. and some of them like charter only have 2 options now are 30 or 100. Needless to say i pull host 98% of the time.
For me, that connection would never work. I have my wife on Facebook and the kid streaming Netflix and other things. Your upload as another poster commented, truly is horrendous. If I had that connection I would lag like crazy and MW3 would be unplayable.
It's all about distance. If you're from the east coast and you're playing with players from the west coast you're going to 2 bar or 3 bar if you're connection's ping is higher than 50. Truthfully my connection is BOO BOO.
If i'm playing by myself it's mostly 4 bar and maybe some jumps to 3 bar (because MW3 pairs me with people in my state) but if you're in a party with people across the country from you're going to have a somewhat bad connection unless you're on the host's team.
I've seen host that make a whole lobby 3 bar the whole game so it could just be you getting the bad end of them watching porn while they play. But there's ways around it. Sure, the best idea would be just to call your ISP and tell them to upgrade you to their "platinum" package but don't waste your money. Just Try to find players that live near you to play with. That's what I did. It didn't completely fix the problem but it made it better.
But thats the problem where i live theres not that many people playing mw3 and if i search a game and theres just 1 lobby with players that live near me im force to join that game over and over again one time when i was playing i back out and search for a new lobby and a kept on getting put back in the same lobby like 30 fucking times and theres like 2045 playing that game mode but i have to play That 1 fucking lobby i fucking live in puerto rico can u help me
All you need is around a 3 down and 2 up connection. The game really doesnt use anything above that.
But your upload is pretty low. You got no ceiling whatsoever to play around with without hitting your head.
Raise the ceiling a little higher be getting rid of anything that could be using upward bandwidth. No Netflix, No downloading porn (sorry but you need to give it a rest ).
Just assuming here but dont use a wirless phone connection for example to play online. It seems like that is what you are using. Either that or look for a ISP that has at least a 2 meg upload speed.
