Somebody should make a video and explain why this game has no dedicated serves or option to rent ones, why they give u worthless facebook like service for extra 50 bucks a year and why people fall for this crap ?

Nothing beats a lan party with a few friends don't need to worry about internet connection speed, ping ect, though it can be a hassle to set up lol

Yeah... I remember having LAN parties with friends playing BF2. That CO-OP feeling is the best

Lag compensation: Averages all the pings in a game, Adds more latency to people under the average ping and gives a high priority to people with bad connections.

Thats why it will seem like your shooting someone but when the killcam shows it 'apparantly' they fired first. just gives the lower the ping the longer real laggers have to pull off an insta kill.

One more reason they need dedicated servers. It won't fix it but it sure makes it more of a level playing field. Especially since the host no longer has such a crazy advantage.

^^^^^^ What he said.

Thats why the player count is so low too, 6 vs 6 is boring.
