The telltale signs of a horrible game to be

#1betaplayPosted 5/8/2013 6:16:58 PM
#1. You spawn, and move like butter over the map. Almost as if there was actually a gadget called lightfoot, and you you were using it (which you were)! This is going to be a great game, you think. This is almost always a terrible sign, in my experience.

#2. You spawn, and move towards the enemy. It is not particularly smooth. When you get there, you hear the sound of a vargen shooting its shells perfectly in time, with no stutter, a professional drummer. Just rage quit now and save yourself the trouble.

These are almost perfect indicators for me. Crazy smooth motion means the connection comp is off and my enemies are not where my screen shows them to be, which sucks. The perfectly timed (when they hold down the trigger, the "beat" is in perfect time - 10 or 15 sps depending on gun) shot cadence means there is no or little data drop from that player for whatever reason, I assume. In addition to being ahead of where you see them, every bullet counts from these folks, which is a rarity and sucks.

I've heard tons about a "jump" at the beginning of a match but I'm not sure that translates into overall match success or relative advantage. But these two almost always mean trouble. There was only one exception, months ago when Beerbong hosted me when #1 was actually a good sign.

Other signs?

When you hear multiple bleeps, when you're joining (meaning that you joined with 15 secs left, and when it says "game near end, joining next round..." and then kicks you all together.

The lag between you choosing a map, and it registering you choice is a reasonable indicator about how crappy the lag in game will be...

the first time you reload in a match, and the graphics/rendering/action of reloaded skips and repeats several times, for a few seconds, before your magazine is truly full again.
