I get that the lot of you are all having a hard time playing MW3 because of what you think is the problem(Lag Compensation). I am not going to deny that you are probably experiencing lag and want to find something to blame. But What I have yet to see is a solution. What do you think removing Lag compensation is going to do? Do you know how the game is even going to operate without it? How do you know that when they remove it, your games will run smoothly? Do you even know? Or are you just taking BS out of someone elses bag of BS and calling it your own because it smells almost the same?
The people who have no idea what they are talking about, yes. What if they remove lag compensation and then it all goes to crap even more so when we had lag compensation? No one has even thought about that. So if that happens, then who is to blame? If someone can give me some factual evidence that removing Lag Compensation is going to make playing MW3 smooth for everyone then I will shut up. But it seems everyone is just whining just to whine without any knowledge or solution to the matter at hand.
i dont even know what lag compensation is to be honest i just want a even playing field when i come up against someone the crap ive had to deal with today is a joke shooting people just to have them spin round and drop me is just plain wrong
What IW needs is a thread of people who are suffering from this problem, the type of connections they have and what they percieve is happening and let IW decide if and how they fix it - they're supposed to be the experts after all.
A constructive thread like this might be noticed more than a "whaaa whaaa my game doesn't work".
So it's all in our heads? (Basically what you're saying) You sound like a Treyarch fanboy to me.
Hundreds of people complaining, LIVE recorded gameplay on youtube showing how bad it is, but no we're lying because some random guy on a forum says so.
Nothing is going to be fixed. This is IW we are talking about here folks. If 3arch didn't bother with it, then IW won't either.
Thus you need to fix it yourself. While I have not really experimented with this in MW3, I know that bogging down your connection in Blops worked like a charm. Just find a large file to DL from a slow site (State and Federal gov't sites are great for the long slow DL) and try playing that way.
Hope this helps.
Don't think he's suggesting it in your head, more that your proposed fix will make the game worse not better and I have to agree.
Read my previous post and do something constructive, a fix for this will still be weeks away even if they know what it is now.
Also, to all those suffering is it intermittant, or every game you play or is always when you are host?
Answers would probably be better in a new thread!
