That's why you have DEDICATED SERVERS to correct this problem instead of that p2p crap that they got where everything gets outta whack!

it's a casual massacre and nobody cares as these same people will buy it next year!

Black Ops 2 has dedicated servers on PC. Still, most PC players have lag and reg issues. Dedicated servers doesn't equal a better experience. It's the net code that matters most.

Statix1896d ago

Yes, the horrible netcode and lag compensation is the problem with new Call of Duty games. Even with dedicated servers, Treyarch can, have, and will still screw it up.

@Porkchop I'd take a dedicated server over the lag fest called P2P. Any day...

Dedicated servers put you at the expense of either the developer or the Admin... the developer has the option to close down servers which can be brought back up by the community but then your at the mercy of the Admin which can either be a dick for no reason or rather cool in some rare instances. Counter Strike and BF3 being are shining examples of admin abuse.

And odd. Whenever I played Call of Duty (post-MW1), I was always killed by people with BAD connections.

PhiMattic1896d ago

Interesting, will have to listen to this one.

Romudeth1896d ago

Are there a lot of COD users using 56k connections or something? lol Pretty much everyone has high speed internet nowadays. This isn't 2001.

Hitman07691896d ago

They mean high-speed as in FiOS and Commercial Cable. I'm pretty sure nobody is using 56k but most are using very poor cable or dsl and the result when they go up against somebody with a good connection they lose - bad... If you play the game for just an hour or two you will experience it more than a few times. It's persistent problem among all COD titles.

Happens to me even tho i have 22 mbit down and 4 upload comcast but i notice the lag versus other players

geekgamer761896d ago

That's insane rewarding those just for having a fast ISP! Ridiculous!!!

JRivera921896d ago

Lmao, sucks for all the people actually playing legit with a regular fast internet... They should ban or reset all the people that have dodgy ass stats along w/ being Prestige Master...

e-p-ayeaH1896d ago

who cares about stats just have fun playing the game

JRivera921896d ago

Lol, you'd be surprised how many people care about their precious stats... I personally don't, Call of Duty takes no skill whatsoever, it's superbly easy to play.

SilentNegotiator1896d ago

Some people enjoy ranking up and increasing their stats. And if people are getting them through artificial means, other might feel like the experience of gaining stats is devalued.
