Currently 100% sure the community is imagining these lag comp issues.

Okay, so I was unable to get this game during release, but I eventually picked it up last Tuesday. Before I got the game, I noticed people complaining about a multitude of things. Naturally, this made me wary, but no way was I not going to get the game because of people complaining on gamefaqs.



But the way you guys so strongly complained about lag compensation...I was honestly starting to get quite worried, but I obviously picked the game up anyway.





Am I god or are you guys all just horrible?




1. I pull host pretty much almost every game, and if I'm not host I'm usually on a 4 bar connection.

2. Games where I'm 3 bar due to awful host.....feel like 3 bar. It doesn't feel like I'm beating guys just because I'm on a worse connection. It feels like ****.

3. I have a 2 KD. Not that this matters in the slightest, but I decided to throw this in there before someone called me a scrub for whatever reason so that they might retract their statement.

According to you guys, being host majority of my games would make me a victim of lag comp, and being on an awful connection would make me benefit from lag comp. So what's the deal? I'm honestly not noticing anything. I truly do feel that lag compensation is the worlds excuse for the fact that they aren't doing as well as they predicted, or they just simply aren't as good as they thought.




tl;dr;
1. Why am I not experiencing this supposedly game breaking lag comp even though I should be a very big victim of its negative effects?

2. Is this just in peoples heads?

Ape Escape is notable as the first video game to require the use of the Dual Analog Controller for gameplay.

Lag comp has always been in people's head.

Wait till you don't have host ha. You found lucky games cause its there. I have had a 2.0+ kd in all cods and why am I having a problem now?

I know something is wrong when I see it. For you it's all luck my friend.

Wouldn't on-host be when the lag comp is at its worst?

skill based matchmaking and (imho) bad maps and spawns hurt people's stats more than whatever lag comp there is.

Just about every one of these people argued the same thing for MW3, but most of them apparently forgot all about that. Anywho did you have "lag comp issues" with MW3?

Woah. Wtf is this?

Lag comp is being grossly over exaggerated this time. It's actually weaker than it is in MW3 - so the host and those close to the host have an advantage.

If anything, it needs to be made a little stronger.

This community just doesn't understand what lag comp is.

You mean the video that probably will never exist, and if it does, only 3 people will see? I'm so scared.

I've honestly been saying this since MW3, and now with this game I'm 100% sure. I should be one of the saltiest people on this forum due to all the lag comp that should be preventing me from attaining a 2 and forcing me to hold it with a 1, but I don't notice anything lmfao.

When I'm host, I should be the biggest victim. When I'm not host I still don't notice any major connection issues.



I have had a 2.0+ kd in all cods and why am I having a problem now?



Because this game is harder. Period. Anyone who denies this is a complete moron. It's the way they designed the maps. Minor annoyance, but not really a bad thing. Not to mention the infernal skill based matchmaking.
