Sometimes ill shoot at people and then die...replay shows i didnt shoot

#1maxthef1asherPosted 2/4/2013 10:10:19 AM
When i run up on someone and its the mexican standoff where we lock eyes and count to 0 and then blast each other with our guns they will die sometimes...however most the times when we run up on each other Ill blast my gun for about 2 whole seconds shooting like 40 bullets right at them...but somehow i die even though i shot more and more direct However in the replay it will show me coming up on him, shooting for less than a second, shooting maybe three bullets and off to their side. what happened to my direct shooting and the other second of shooting/the other 30 bullets???

Is this lag? Or is this slow gameplay? Is this something you run into?

It's lag. There have been times where I got killed when I'm getting cover behind something (and reloading). Then on the kill cam, I'm sitting out in the freaking open reloading.

Thats worse than my story. I just dont get why the game lags so much. It pretty much comes down to whoever is the host. I know when im host i get 25+ kills but when im not host im looking at 10 to 20

Come on guys, this is getting ridiculous. It's been this way since CoD4.

The kill cam isn't an accurate representation of what happened, it's just for show. Same with theater mode.

Loads of players are quick to use the kill cam as a basis for their complaint on this game. Whilst there are issues, the kill cam won't show them. Ignore kill cams and go back to blaming lag, dropped packets, bad host or whatever.

I'd say the connection issue is worse than the previous games.

But it isn't too bad. You can still find games where the connection is just fine.

Killcam is more accurate than the guy above makes out but it's not gospel

The lag involved hasn't ever been this bad. Treyarch has managed to achieve trash tier as a developer with BLops 2. Ever since the lasy update the game has become damn near unplayable for me. Unless I enjoy getting butchered over and over by a s*** ton of lag. This is also with a great connection. I pay for higher then high speed for a reason and BLop2 is the only game where I get lag this bad.

First of all ive never played the other COD's before so i cant compare it to anything

How is the kill cam not accurate...its not like the killcam creates an additional second or two of gameplay that doesn't exist...it shows what happened. Its a log and a record of what happened. Its not a this could have happened type of thing. If i get shot by a bullet and fall to the ground it shows that...it doesn't show me getting shot...running twenty feet jumping and then dying. It shows exactly what happened.

And how do you know kill cams aren't showing everything that is correct? What if they did show everything that is correct and this whole time you were blaming the kill cam for being incorrect instead of the obvious lag that is causing it to show a different, true, scenario.

Someone on Den Kirson on the networking involved in this game, with this quote on killcams as well as a reasoning on why they aren't accurate.

http://denkirson.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=5972

Any video you see that is using killcams as an example for anything is worthless information (unless of course, they are trying to show that killcams are inaccurate).


But if you don't want to believe that either, look for the Treyarch developer interview where he states that both the killcam and theatre mode are just for show and aren't accurate in detecting lag.

But some will shrug that off anyway because it's Treyarch.

I feel your lag TC and I quote the great Canadian pop-punk band Simple Plan and say "Welcome To My Life."
