Are you pleased with the latest Call of Duty 4 patch? Has the accuracy of your sniping improved, are you seeing more or less lag? Well apparently some issues have come up, but as usual Infinity Ward is on the case.
Duplicate story, and the only problems I've had on Live since the update is with the sniper rifle, but it's very very small.
Yep this is old news and also a duplicate story. I however do think it lags more than it used to. I was playing domination the other day and actually had the other team capture a flag with myself and 2 teammates standing right next to it and no one on the other team even in the same area of the map.
More people are ending the game since the patch I noticed, and it's also taking longer for gamers to start up (360 version I play) Like whenever I'm partied up with a bunch of guys and we go dominate in HQ and don't have host, we pretty much know the game is going to end early...at least in the old version we would keep joining lobbies until we had host, but this time around we aren't sure who has host until we're actually in game and stuff and yea lol...Other then that, I do enjoy the sniper & acoge scope improvments, however I notice a lot more damn snipers now a days since the patch who think they can snipe now lol Anyways, off to work on this stupid program for class ;_;
...the console versions of COD4 have one of the worst lobby systems of any next-gen game. Halo 3 and Warhawk are examples of how a good lobby system should work. COD4's lobby is not even as good as what was offered with COD3.
I hate joining games and finding my connection is 1 red bar. Results in me quitting to go find another game and on doing so end right back up in the same game (my record for quitting and joining the same game is 16!). I don't give a damn about the win/loss ratio but more about the time it takes to find a good game and the wear and tear on my console with all the disc activity.
I also hate it when you finally do end up hosting and the game will quit because only 1 or 2 of the other players have a good connection to you. Why would a good lobby system even throw a group of players together when the connection is not good enough to sustain gameplay!?!
To summarise, COD4 is one of the best on-line experiences wrapped in one of the worst lobby systems.
i still have connections issues with some of my friends and when are the going to lower the accuracy and range of the P90?
in reality the p90 has the accuaracy and range of the uzi, but i get capped with that thing all the time from across the map.
haha, if I had a dollar for every time I got sniped with the p90.
Get skillz before killz!
yeah its ridiculous how the p90 can snipe ahahah
been able to kill someone that far off with the P90. I have it silenced so, that has an affect but, I've never seen it do what you all just talked about. If I try to shoot someone further away with the P90, then I get my arss shot in the face with a battle riffle. Battle riffle is my secondary.
Haha, battle rifle. HALO FTW !
So I guess we will have a patch for the patch by.....?
The spawning is my biggest gripe with the patch. You either spawn right in front of the enemy or on the other side of the map staring at a corner, ceiling, or both.
I have to wait until the ps3 patch comes out.
To me so many things that I had problems with before are fixed like the Acog scope, so much so that the little things like host leaving game don't really bother me as much. It's been a really great update... All I need now is that when the new maps come out please Raise the Prestige Rank Past 10 because I already have the Gold Cross and it would be really Amazing to go up to 20 with A Purple Heart or something being the highest award Given, and award new guns and scopes with the new ranks. My biggest disappoint has been that getting to the gold Cross does not mean something special. I mean it takes some serious work to get to that level not to mention hours and hours of playing for days on end. You should get something Special, like a special gun, or the icon on your Gamer tag should turn to a Gold Cross instead of the COD4 standard symbol. - An invite to Infinity ward to see COD6 and be invited to the beta for the next version... Something Special for the fans. And for all that hard work of getting to the Gold Cross... Come on' something. (Don't let it all be for nothing)
and we didnt get the patch yet. im telling you that i have no lag issues when i play online. i dont really care about this patch. if it does screw something up then i would be pissed because i dont even need the patch. i rarely use snipers so that makes me not even care about the patch even more.
It's actually worth trying to earn it now! I use the M16 quite a bit and have one set up with a red dot for smaller maps and an ACOG for larger maps.
