We All Know Since The Last Update For Lag Compensation, Many Gamers Experiencing Delays In Gameplay With Hit Markers Not Registering On Their Enemies When Firing Is A Serious Issue. But rather than focusing on the issue itself and how or if they'll fix this. The Majority would say that it's to level the playing field to make it even for everyone's connectivity. (Sure, Activision will say that that's the main reason.) However, let's remember that Infinity Ward/Activision is a "Mulit-Million-Dollar" Company. So through the eyes of Developers and Creators like Robert Bowling. To Understand What's Really Behind This Lag You Have To Put yourself in the shoes of Infinity Ward and Robert Bowling.
Let's Begin Shall We?
Okay, Wheather You're Game Skill is What Is Commonly Known As "BEAST" or The Complete Opposite ("SCRUB/NOOB"). You Have To understand as the creator what your customer's reviews are of your product (MW3). Overall, It's Likely That There Are "WAY MORE SCRUBS/NOOBS" than there are "BEAST PLAYERS." So Why Put The LAG COMPENSATION and Say, "It's To Level The Connectivity and Playing Field For Everyone To Have A Fair Chance In Every Game You Enter." Okay? That makes sense. But Is This Really Really Really why you're doing this idea of LAG Compensation? Because You Care So Much About Everyone's Take On Your Product? Or Maybe It's Something Called "MORE CUSTOMERS/$$$$?" If You're Saying That LAG COMPENSATION is made to make things even then why are people complaing about your product according to Delays and Unregistered Hit Markers? Why are gamers from all consoles (Wii/XBOX/PS3/PC) are even on these forums downgrading your product's lag connections?
The Answer is:
Because As The Creator. You Don't Giva Crap as long as your customer's can't get their money back on a product (MW3) you Cleverly Got Them To Pre-Order Months Before It's Release. BUT BACK TO THE BEAST/SCRUBS/NOOBS Topic. One Thing is to say to "make the playing field even" and another is to "GET COMPLAINTS ON YOUR FORUMS ABOUT THIS LAG COMPENSATION." That Being Said, HIGH SPEED INTERNET Gamers who bust and labor their @$$es Off at work to earn money To Purchase Better Routers For Your Future Products Are Likely Players Whose Shooter Skill Levels are "BEAST". I mean, If That Wasn't The Case, why would a SCRUB or NOOB bother busting @$$ at work to make money to purchase HIGH SPEED INTERNET or FASTER ROUTERS for a game they're not skilled at? Where's the fun in that? IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF TIME FOR THEM IF THAT WERE THE CASE. It's Unlikely That A Scrub or Noob would even bother trying that theory which is why Iike I pointed Out. There Are "WAY MORE SCRUBS/NOOBS than there are "BEASTS" in Call Of Duty Games.
(In the Eyes of ACTIVISION/ROBERT BOWLING")
You want to rack up more gamers to buy your product. NOT DRAW THEM AWAY. So What Do You Do To Satisfy they're Crappy Scrub/Noob Skill Needs? You Give Them A LAG COMPENSATION ADVANTAGE by Penalizing "BEAST PLAYERS or Just Decent Skilled Players with HIGH SPEED CONNECTIVITY/ROUTERS therefore giving Poor Interenet/Dial-Up Scrubs (who probably don't even know what LAG COMPENSATION is) the 1 to 2 second Jump when pulling the trigger on the enemy.
It's Sad To Say But...
I Don't Think It Get Anymore Clearer Than That. Activision wouldn't want a buying customer with scrub level skill getting owned by BEAST Players Online Only To Have Them being convinced to NEVER BUYING A CALL OF DUTY GAME AGAIN.
And If Your Someone claiming that this post BULL or replying with Comments Like, "MAYBE JUST SUCK AT THIS GAME" or "THE LAG ISN'T THAT BAD"....Then You know what? "YOU'RE ONE OF THE SCRUBS/NOOBS WITH THE CRAPPY DIAL-UP/CRAP INTERNET Who Has The LAG Jump Over Many Gamers Out There Who Are Experiencing LAG ISSUES." Sure maybe your gonna post up your router numbers/statistics and say that you have High Speed Internet and MW3 is Fine.
But On Behalf of the many out there who know what im talking about.
This LAG COMPENSATION is really really Unfair and sad to swallow down and accept. CALL OF DUTY is The Most Competitive Shooter Game of All Time and It Just Really Really Really Bums Many of Us Out There that whatever deserving BEAST Reputation We had in past COD GAMES OVER THERE YEARS has vanished in a matter of month by being Penalized with LAG COMPENSTATION just because there are more gamers out there with Below Average Skill getting rewarded with this 1 to 2 second jump. I don't know what to think about anymore of this guys but i wouldn't be writing all of this if more than half of what i said wasn't true. There's video proof on youtube by many gamers out there who claim LAG COMPENSATION by Activision is Killing them and i don't blame them.
What Do You guys think? Give An Honest Opinion About This.
