Hardcore Kill Confirmed is in Black Ops 2, but what's next?

GameZone writes, "It's time to look to the future. If Treyarch is willing to add playlists, what could be next on their radar. There are far fewer players taking advantage of the Hardcore category compared to regular matches like Team Deathmatch and Hardpoint. But maybe if more was available for the category, then more people would start to play Hardcore." (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

ANYTHING they add to the game is moot until they fix the lag compensation/lag problems. The game is unplayable for most people that realize(understand) that their bullets aren't hitting due to the LC. Just read the forums. The game is broken until they fix it and it doesn't matter what game modes they add because the game simply isn't fun when other people have a half second+ advantage on you and their bullets hit where they aim.

At least, that's how it is on the PC. I haven't been paying attention to how it plays on the consoles.

I've got it on PC and I haven't noticed any lag compensation. I do know what it is though, Bad Company 2 had it hardcore for over a year til DICE got off their asses to fix it. In BC2 it was set to compensate for 100 ping at all times.

Just check the Steam forums or COD forums. Just about every thread is about lag compensation. If you're not getting compensated then you must have a pretty bad connection or a poor computer because EVERY single person I know that plays it on PC has given up because of how bad it is.

There are videos on YouTube that show just how bad it is. You'll get shots off on your screen but when you watch the kill cam or go into Theater Mode and watch it again, there's so much LC that you don't even get your shots off. YOu'll never even see people come around a corner and kill you. On their screen, they see you with plenty of time to react and kill you. It's AWFUL. The game is broken and I'm not the only person that is saying this. Just read the forums.

Hell, people are resorting to net limiters to make their connection "seem" horrible so they don't get lag compensated. If people are doing that, the game is broken.

Regardless, I'm done with COD in general(so are my friends). Every single game after COD 4 has been a joke regarding lag. Whether they use P2P or dedicated servers with lag compensation, it doesn't matter. It has ruined the game. The game would be fun, otherwise.

I have a 35mbit connection, so my connection isn't bad at all. It's very good.

And poor PC? Core i5 2500k @5.0GHz, H100 liquid CPU cooler, GTX 560Ti Twin Frozr II, Viper Xtreme 8GB 1600MHz CL8, 90GB Corsair FS3 Sata 3 SSD. Yeah, my PC isn't poor at all.

I'm not getting any lag compensation at all. When I shoot my bullets hit whatever I'm aiming at, I've never had any problems with reg. I guess I'm just lucky.

on the 360 it works perfectly and lag is rare (if there IS noticeable lag, the host migration usually soon follows). Glad about the addition to the Hardcore playlist.

It's not lag. There are dedicated servers for PC. It's the lag compensation. Basically, LC tries to even out any advantage people with better pings have. In MW3, if you were host, it would actually give you lag to make it more fair to the others that connected to you.

The problem is, BO2 has so much LC that it actually punishes people that have a good connection which is why people are resorting to using programs to limit their connection to simulate having an internet connection that is slow, therefore, the game won't "give" you lag.

Ah yes, the always expected "It's perfect on 360" comment. Reminds me of Skyrim, with 360 folk on here declaring perfection, meanwhile the developers themselves had a lengthy list of problems they were trying to fix on all platforms.

referring to LAG, dumba**

On Xbox 360 I get some pretty bad lag spikes every now and then. It usually lasts about a second.

What pisses me off when I randomly get disconnected and lose my stats for that match.
