How I battle lag comp

#1SerialVandalPosted 11/19/2012 7:20:57 AM
I have battled lag comp for several CoD games now. I have FIOS, and can ping over a 2 thousand miles away with less than 100ms. I have 30 down, 30 up.

I have fiddled with MTU, QOS, DNS, DMZ, you name it.

One thing is consistent though, my ping, and the fact that I play the victim of lag comp.

Finally I came up with a solution.

1. I set everything I could on my router and xbox to take advantage of my connection. I made sure it runs butter smooth. For most other games it's a dream.

2. Join a lobby, wait for game, pull host (happens about 90% of the time).

3. If I am the victim of lag comp I inform my team that the host is being treated unfairly, and that the game will now be ending and they should all contact Activision about doing something to make life a little easier for hosts. (Bonus troll points if you wait till the last 20 seconds of a match to make the announcement.)

4. Dashboard thus ending the game.

Now, I'm not 100% certain that dashboarding as host boots everyone to the lobby, but I know it worked that way in blops 1, and MW3. I figure that if enough hosts do this then maybe they will fix their trash code.

I'm a great host, I just don't put up with guests who take advantage of me :)

Don't own this game, probably won't buy this game due to limited funds/poor reception, and thus, don't really care about this game's "Trash code". But you, sir... You deserve a special place in hell, next to the pedophiles, and the persons from the theater that speak throughout the performance. Good day.

You know , you really have to be someone "special" to compare pedophiles to, you know, someone just playing a game unfairly.

Who is playing the game unfairly?

The people that whine and cry because the person with the best internet (which they don't want to buy) has a slight advantage?

The people that need people like the TC and me, with our wonderful connection that we paid for, AND want to have an advantage over us?

Yes...those people.

I do believe you've failed to recognize a joke, sir. And so, an educational link, if I may.

Now, wasn't that enthralling? If you still don't perceive humor, I'm afraid the fault is entirely your own, and would kindly request you discontinue reading my additions to the conversation.

Oh please , I have a 200 mbps and I suffer as much as the next guy , hell I even dashboard a few times in really horrible situations , but I wouldn't call that fair.

Ok, maybe not fair to us too , considering its pretty stupid of treyarch to do such a thing , but its pretty bad for some dude to go 40-1x ..... but then again he probably didn't deserve it.

A new host is selected and you eventually get put on probation? How are you doing the right thing? Yea sometimes this game in unfair but if your good your precious k/d shouldnt be affected at all.

I have no idea the point you're trying to make.

I am pretty mixed about this. Its just the rage clouding my judgement. Am I for or against dashboarding ? I have no idea now.

I'm fairly certain if you dashboard or unplug the ethernet cord it does not select a new host (though they COULD have changed that for this game).

And yeah, I've done the probation thing a bunch already. It sucks, but every once in awhile you get in a good lobby for a few matches and everything runs great. Then new people join and through off the lag comp algorithm all to hell and I end up right back where I started.
