Man, do I love having my ass handed to me by people with .6 KDs.

However, I've heard other people say that having host is a ridiculous advantage, and basically puts the game on easy-mode.
I've never felt pulling host has been a disadvantage, ever. My internet:
Not the best, but not the worst either. I never understood it either when people say pulling host is awful.
Not to mention, I never really get bad hosts in this game when I search 'Best'. Been on a 3 bar like <10 times. TC, you always are searching 'Best', I'd hope?
Hey, everyone! This store discriminates against the poor!

I'd kill for that connection. Literally kill.

It's funny that people seriously blame a good connection for their problems. My connection is just fine and I still don't have trouble keeping over a 2k/d. http://www.speedtest.net/result/2495094651.png
but omg if my connection was bad i would have a 4 k/d lawl
Tc maybe you should buy an xim3 to get an edge on the competition since you're not very good
Advertising signs, they con you into thinking you’re the one
That can do what’s never been done, that can win what’s never been won
Playing against people like that is f**** hard.
Hahaha! This so much. I can't tell you how many times I get killed because I give the other guy way to much credit.
This is why I love lobby leaderboards. It was readily apparent in WaW, where latency was very consistent. I could look up the player who was currently host and putting up 30-5 scores and check his career k/d ratio and it would be <1. I would check every time, and without exception, the host's k/d ratios in while hosting in the lobby were much higher than his typical k/d on the leaderboards. Same thing in BLOPS. Being host in those games conferred a major advantage, where simply being 50-150ms ahead of everyone else could easily multiply your typical k/d ratio. Anyone who doesn't think connection grants a large advantage/disadvantage is either in fooling themselves, stupid or both.
I think some of you aren't as good as you think you are.
While I didn't appreciate imtoskilled constantly plugging his stats into conversation (looked like bragging), I believe his argument is valid. If skill wasn't a factor, there would be absolutely no consistency. One would not be able to maintain consistent stats if every game was left purely to chance.
Its the 3 bar players that have been lighting me up the past few cods. if .6 kdr is on a 4 bar he's a .6 player against me. give him a 3 bar and he turns into a 3 kdr player.
