Will Ghosts Finally Get Rid Of Lag?

One of the most integral parts of the Call of Duty franchise (arguably THE most integral part) is the multiplayer, and the guys at Infinity Ward are doing everything in their power to ensure we get the smoothest, fairest and most entertaining experience possible.

Doubt it, Activision can't afford Dedicated servers so go peer-to-peer connections.

Basically, If you own a high-end connection and the host don't... Prepare for Lag-Comp.

Still, I'm staying away from anything COD after the disasters.

Activision can't afford dedicated servers? I highly doubt that's the reason they don't have them, I'd say it's more likely to be Activision not needing to throw anymore money at a game that's going to sell anyway.

They don't do DS's anymore because P2P relies on the gaming population to keep it alive. Once the new games come along, the older ones slowly die out, thus, killing the old game and forcing people to buy the new one.

The fewer people there are playing the game, the higher the lag (well, in theory. It's always been horrible post COD4). Kotick has been quoted saying he doesn't think it's fair that people can play a game for years and years and not have to keep paying money to do it. He said that shortly after COD4's success which just happens to be when IW implemented the P2P for MW2.

They've said in the past that they were going to use DS's in the new COD games but it was all a bunch of lies and half-truths. Never again. I'm done with them.

Yea you need DS....just started playing BF3 for first time and it's awesome.

Map is trash? ok cool....I never have to play it if I don't want to.

Thought Xbox One was running dedicated servers?

Cueil1918d ago

It's there for use if they want to... only if they want to be jerks wont they use MS Azure servers... my guess is they'll use MS Azure servers since it's not on their dime

MS claims that all games will have dedicated servers. Of course they could do a 180, then say only first party games will have dedicated servers.

Mikeyy1918d ago

MS doesnt have dedicated servers for every game, there is no evidence of this, fanboys lied to you.

Baka-akaB1918d ago

There is no such thing as a big publisher that can't afford edicated servers . The rest is a matter of will and greed

Must be fancy..

lol jk

Has nothing to do with "affording" it... They can put cowpies in a game case, call it "Call of Doodie" and it will still sell 10 million copies...

awi59511918d ago

Thats why paying for online play is stupid. We pay to play online then companies use our bandwith we pay for to run their games. That's total BS PC all the way.

Matt6661917d ago

they can afford by how many millions they make every year, they just don't give a flying crap about there consumers. What even worse is people still support them year in year out even though its the same stuff every year...

I'm hopeing next gen all multiplayer will have dedicated servers I know Microsoft is investing in it,I'm sure Sony is as well.if you pay for multiplayer then you should have dedicated servers.

ravennevermore1918d ago

Why would Ghost have lag since Xbox One is running Dedicated Servers for all multi-player games?

MysticStrummer1918d ago

It depends on where those servers are, and on the connection between the user and those servers.

InMyOpinion1918d ago

Maybe they will offer it as DLC?

USMC_POLICE1918d ago

Will the us government stop giving millions of dollars to hostile countries? No so I don't expect cod to eliminate lag neither.

Donnieboi1918d ago (Edited 1918d ago )

Wtf u ranting about?

USMC_POLICE1918d ago
