People are always complaining about lag comp, and net connection is obviously a big part of that.
So I would like to take a small survey. I would like to ask everybody to go to pingtest.net and post your results in this topic. Just use the direct link option and post it here. Please also state how bad/often you lag and if you have a wireless connection.
I would like to see if there is any real correlation. If lag is as bad as people say then there should be a pretty big disparity between good and bad connections. If lag comp actually works the way its supposed to, the results between connections should have a little more parity.
People over exaggerate lag to the max. Now I'm not saying it doesn't exist, but any time someone loses they need something to blame. Lag is always the fall back guy!
Yes I know, but I would really like solid facts to tell me the story. I was seriously considering putting together a spreadsheet, but there is no real way to measure lag in a game. So half the data will have to do with rough lag estimates.
Not on my computer right now but my ping is usually between 20-30. I have 10 down 1 up. People say that slower connections get the good side of lag comp, but I'm on the bad side half of the time. But I don't blame all my deaths on lag. I'll admit to my mistakes.
