In a nutshell, it's way to try and make everyone be on a level field connection wise.

A way to allow the player with the worst connection in the lobby to compete with the best connection.

Without lag comp, this would be impossible and the player with the worst connection would always lose heads up gunfights.

Says the person who is on the good side of lag comp. Try being on the other end of things where you actually die before the enemy fires their gun on your side. You drop then the gun fires right after. On the killcam they fired 7-8 bullets at you, or 3-4 bursts with guns like the M8. It's not an excuse. You're just lucky enough to not be on the losing end of it. Look up examples on YouTube. They are everywhere.
