I'm with you man, I just put in about an hour and would have to empty a clip before I got a kill. This constenstly puts me at at disadvantage as now I have to reload to get his buddy who is always behind him. Forget double kills. Even if I were to get them both, they will respawn right behind me.
After all the headaches MW3 had (people lagging connections to gain an advtange), you would think 3arch would learn from this. NOPE. Why in this day and age would you ever want a slow internet connection? Answer, because your playing COD. And thats what this franchise has become, A BAD JOKE!, Now, 3arc are trying their best to be IW. Horrible lag (yep), overpowered killstreaks like lightening strike (yep), poor spawns (yep), unbalanced play (yep), QS so teens will drop plyaing the objective for the 360 jump shot (yep).
Last COD I buy and I'm like you, wondering how much gamestop will give me for this disk. Its such a shame; I'm reduced to ranting on their message board that they'll never check. MW2 and BO1 were my favorites and will probably be the games I go back to.
Yeah my lag is so bad that I cant even shoot people with a shotgun. Sniper rifle is nearly impossible. I dump a full extended magazine on someone and 3/4 of them hit them then I die, look at the replay and shows I missed them the whole time and they shoot me two times and I die. WTF. Its getting to the point that my vocabulary is becoming all cuss words while I play this game. I dont know why Treyarch give the advantage to bad internet connections, if anything give the advantage to better internet connections. I live in Arizona so we have a lot of poor connections around here. I even called my ISP to downgrade my service to the lowest they had but they offered me the same internet connection for the price of the low bandwidth one. I am one of those stupid ones that said I would never buy a COD game again. This time I did not buy it, the GF bought it for me. I wish they would at least OFFER a paid server for people who want better game play. I am sure so many people are frustrated that they would pay for the dedicated server. That way at least they can get rid of the people with lagg switches also. With that said, Treyarch needs to check accounts that are primary the servers and to see if there are delays in the uploads from lag switches and ban these people.
Normally i have 4 bar connection which doesn't mean crap on this game. I pay for really good internet. This is my experience on bo2:
* Sometimes i have to drag the cross hairs across the enemy to see where i'm getting hit markers at. I normally do this for the first two kills to get aiming down.
* Running away from an enemy through a door always result in me being killed. I always make it inside the door around the corner then bam i'm dead.
* When i run into a enemy things start to get laggy like the game is trying to sync. I always see a jump or a little bit of a shuffle.
* Im easily behind my enemy by 1 sec most of the time. I have great internet and i'm still rubberbanding around. What can i do to make this game not lag? Downgrade my internet or something?
* I know that lag and hiccups will always be present this is a call of duty game ,but i swear if i have to sit through another match with 8 hosts migrations, no one has left the match, We all have full bars and we're in close combat battle. I"M GOING TO SNAP THIS GAME IN HALF.
The game is almost unbearable to play. When i think I have it figured out, I get to a head to head fight, I know I pulled first and got shots off, but when I see the kill cam it looks like I didn't even get a shot off.
I had a 1.2 k/d before the latestest update, but as soon as that update came in the average since then has been about 0.75 since.
In order to pull an even or better, I have to stick to the perimeter and do a lot of flanking, which is boring and time consuming, if I get into the middle of the fight, I get killed instantly, by people that I don't even see.
kill cams are not 100% accurate.. when it comes to lag you have to think about the you having a little ghost behind ya, when an enemy sees you, your not really right there.. the data transfer from where you see the enemy is on a milli seconds of lag
ever been killed and you know you were in cover when you died?.. because the enemy saw your Ghost of where you WERE at, thou you see yourself making it to cover.. but you didnt make it.. which is why you died
so even though you make the turn, you have to think about it as you actually havent made that turn yet to an enemy.
you shot first?? no you didnt.. you were still in mid run from when the data computed your location
what you see is real time, and what the enemy sees is real time, and what the data sees is its own real time which is the deciding factor of who dies and who lives
I have super fast internet and a great connection all the time. I quit CoD BO2 10 days after buying it. It is awful. I cannot win a firefight, the killcam shows an entirely different interpretation of what I see happen. I can't creep up on anyone because they watch me coming while I can't see them, they are a second ahead of me. I wish everyone would stop complaining and return their games, force the companies to take action. Everyone complains and still plays. Can't we start a movement to never by a treyarch game again? Their message of the day (as I have read) was jokingly telling the CoD community to please take it easy on X-mas newbs. Are you serious? F#*K the x-mas newbs and F$!K your game. Fix it. Everyone who is experiencing issues with it should stop playing/return it immediately and then never pay money for another game and put these people out of business.
