Why is this game suddenly unplayable?

I don't understand. The lag is so atrocious I can't get a shot off. Even on "best" search, even with rooms full of four bars, I can't get a shot off without being instakilled.

On their killcam, it's the normal they see me for a couple of seconds, aim in and shoot. Yet, I'll be ADS knowing exactly where they're at and I'm suddenly dead.

The first couple of weeks were excellent.

Now...it's actually worse than MW3 was for me.

I've also noticed in the kill cams their guns seem to have zero recoil.

Last night between roughly 10pm & 12am EST games were actually pretty good, however sometime after midnight for some reason it went from playable to it's regular 6 hitmarkers from my FAL in someones back to have them turn around and one shot me with their PDW.

At that point we just we just were happy we got a few hrs not getting manhandled by lag and called it a night.

I'm just frustrated with it.

And I seriously don't understand why the first couple of weeks were so good for me, now it's a pile of trash.

Nothing in the update I saw could have affected my game play, but I suspect they did something they're not announcing.

I've noticed this, too.

Every shot is spot on from the time they start firing. I figure it's just something weird with the kill cam.

But I seem to never see anybody miss any shots.

I can barely play at night. Nothing but getting matched against parties and magically getting "outshot" every gunfight. Contrarily, in the morning, I have a decent time.

I'm on the west coast, how about you?

I haven't found any time really that has been better than others.

In MW3, late, late night ( like 1 or 2 am my time) was pretty decent. As soon as people started waking up and getting online, my connection became crap.

East coast.

There really REALLY needs to be a Mercenary Kill Confirmed mode. I don't think I'm gonna play at night until there's a better option than lolmoshpit

Same for me.
Lots of lag and deaths to noobs I got the heads up on

That would be fun.
