Comparing it to MW2s MP (which I'm also ranking up on - new gamertag - long story - no wasn't hacked and no didn't mod my past 360s), should I be investing my time into BLOPS?
I think blops is unequivocally the better game than mw2, now that mw3 is out. IW and treyarch games have different styles, and mw3 is the better IW style game, with the exception that the maps are somewhat better in mw2.
I have to wait till after Xmas for MW3 (the whole Santa thing / kids), but from what I'm reading lag comp has to be patched anyway. So I'm fine w/ waiting for a playable version.
I hate to say it, but they're just pay lip service that they're going to fix the lag. They can't - not to the extent that people are expecting/hoping. I see people raging about it in the mw3 thread that I cant post in, wishing I could explain how it's "normal" and calm the rage....but people probably wouldn't accept the explanation (believe me, I've tried with blops). Either way, the true "fixes" to the situations that people complain about are worse than the problem they're trying to fix, and they're not crazy enough to do those things. There are some minor things they could do, but it's more to do with matchmaking than netcode, and they come with their own baggage.
As far as I can tell, nothing has changed in mw3 over blops regarding netcode, other than people fixating on "lag compensation" as the problem and creating youtube videos about it, without actually understanding the fundamental problem. Lag comp has always been there since CoD 1, it's there in all of them. Because no one complained about lag in blops, right?
