Playing aboard is generally far from ideal though, I'm taking it the dude is from Germany and joined an US lobby.

It's best to have an average net in this game. You don't host, get an average ping thus some compensation on people with faster nets / pings with little to no latency in the mix. Ideal.

That does not say much he had two bars, usually videos provide better reference to really bad lag.

And to that yes lag is prevelant in the game. Whats new?

Actually the guy with the worst connection in the lobby doing the best says alot.  I wonder what its like to be a second ahead of everyone else.

If he is from Germany he would be a sceond behind, dosen't say much for the rest of the group.

I play with a clan all from the Midwest US. That's 6 people from a moderately high concentrated area. Sometimes 3 or 4 members are from the town I live in, yet we ALWAYS get foreign players in our lobby even after they added a strict LAN type

I understand that it's fully possible to live in Ohio and still speak another language, but judging by the clan tags, PSN names, languages they speak (french, German, Spanish) and heavy accents (UK mostly, some Australian) they more than likely reside somewhere other than the heart of the US. Why do I still get placed with these people?

When I play partied with clan members, we're all over the place: Florida, Ohio, Arizona, California, even Canada. There's no problems at all. But once we start seeing clan tags like PR or VZLA in the lobby, we know it's time to back out and find another.

A picture shows nothing about lag comp... lag and lag compensation are not the same thing.
