Are console gamers really ignorant?

Now they are claiming people with higher ping have advantage over people with lower ping...just go look at any multiplayer shooter youtube video that relates to lag (especially CoD and sometimes The Last of Us).

Not even I when I played console games could think of such ignorant crap.

It depends on the game.

Certain games do give small advantages (not on purpose) to those which higher pings.

For instance, in CS:GO...

The person with the higher ping will technically be able to wall peak enemies easier. It isn't noticeable with low pings, but if you play against someone with 250+ and you are 50 or below, you can tell.

Lets say someone has a 250 ping. When they round a corner on their screen, they will see you up to 1/4 of a second before you see them.

Then you get into the whole problem of them being hard to hit because they are lagging.

Yes. If they weren't, they would not be console gamers.

Everyone's ignorant about something.

Some games can't handle high latency. Someone with a stupidly high ping might be teleporting around on the map and get some lucky kills because you're never really sure where they are.

I've seen it happen a few times, but it isn't a huge issue.

Latency does have a significant impact on gameplay. Try playing on a game server with 50 ping and then compare it to one with 200 ping. I have, and it makes a huge difference. The lagger has to rely on bullet leading just to get the shots to register and deal with annoying teleporting freezes.

Look who's the ignorant one here?

Protip: the lagger is the one with the massive ping, meaning what you said and what TC was talking about are the exact opposite.

Console games used lag compensation, but it doesn't really matter since high ping are always behind to whats happening in real time, so its worse for high ping players.
