Lag has always been a topic of intense discussion with Call of Duty games. Advanced warfare is the first game that has tried to overcome this and in the process has completely destroyed the multiplayer game mode. Lag compensation is Advanced Warfares method of "evening the odds". Players with slow connections will no longer have a disadvantage over players with fast connections. In theory this sounds like a fantastic idea, but when you see how it works, it's quite possibly the worst thing they could have ever done!
