It's just a word created by people who regularly do bad.

LAG is real, but LAG COMPENSATION is not.

There are times where a single player will lag, and skip around, but that's not lag compensation.
The lag you're seeing him experience, he's experiencing the same thing on his screen.

Now days, anytime someone dies, it's because of lag compensation.
Everyone expects to flawless, or near flawless matches now days.

Your bullets "not hitting" is you getting outplayed, or overestimating the time needed to kill.

Lag Compensation isn't real, it's a myth.
Just like Santa Claus, the landing on the moon, and the Chupacabra.

Lel. That must be why this games p2p coding is a pile of **** along with MW3 (funfact: IW acknowledged its existence), but the original BO and MW2 still play fine to this day.

Get it right, do it nice. If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice. If you need it... got to have it. Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home

I'm sorry but that is incorrect.

Lag compensation very much exists, although many players use the term incorrectly.

The game has several issues at play. One is that awful connections lead to horrible lag. The other is that lag compensation ruins good connections.

There are many different types of lag compensation. Seems like Cod likes the rewind kind.

Funny because "lag compensation" started with the Black Ops community
Just further proof that it doesn't exist, it's just a cop-out for when people do badly

People expect to dominate every game and every gunfight, and it's not obviously lagging, they call it lag compensation for them not being as good as they wanted

you. don't. even. lift.

stop proclaiming you're good when you're in fact terrible. lying on the internet isn't going to help your cause, and spreading false info about the origin of "lag compensation" doesn't help either.
