I wonder how many times that happens to enemies when I kill them?

Lag. Yep it happens

Does the game get hosted on a server or on someone else's PS3? Is that what it means when it says it's looking for the best host?
post #93 of 824
Someone's PS3. No dedicated servers, which is incomprehensible for the amount of money that this franchise makes.

Ah. Maybe that's often me than. FIOS 35/35 - I've got some sexy network kung fu for this game.

Why spend money on dedicated servers when you can spend millions on a live action commercial with sports stars and celebrities?

Typically one person becomes the host server. Historically that person would be the one experiencing the worst lag issues.

Everything but matchmaking is P2P

any word on when they'll be fixing the frame rate freezes that started after patch 1.03? i also noticed the lag got much worse after the patch. people are rounding corners a half second faster than what's on my screen, resulting in what appears to be instant deaths.

The best part of the game, for me at least, is shooting someone, watching the game hang, seeing the message "searching for new host", and realizing you just the old host rage-quit.

Really, there should be a trophy for that. Call it "...Against the Machine."

i have 15/5 at the moment, my mom has/had 50mbs dl speed dont know if it really makes a difference when playing mp.....but thinking about upgrading to 35/35.. have you had any experience with 15/5 ..i have 2 ps3s and a laptop running usually at the same time... in black ops it worked great (15/5) but in mw3 i think its more the servers problem...but idk maybe ill wait a month see what happens...fios is the bomb when it comes to multiple ps3/computers in one house...

btw i had cox and that was bad ...very bad .. they advertise 30mbs download but you only get that at first then it slows down.....thats why they advertise UP TO 30mbs ...because you get that only when no one else is using there internet .... and during peak hours it get worse... it was lag city with cox even though i was getting there 30mbs dl speed it was still laggy

It was a no brainer for me to go to 35/35. I was on FIOS Extreme HD and 25/25 for the internet. My bill went down 5 bucks by going to FIOS Prime HD and 35/35 internet. I don't miss the channels but I do like me some bandwidth to chew through.

This is the a big issue for me - it happens a few times a game. Well its either that or spawning running a few feet and getting shot in the back.

OR killing a guy then 3 seconds later he spawns behind me and kills me...

Sure its typical complaining, but things that shouldn't happen.

Your internet speed has nothing to do with good online game play. It is all about ping time.

Well, I'm not sure I'm going to get any better than fiber from the house to Verizon. After that I'm at the mercy of the internet - at least I can say best effort was extended (and paid for !).

My son and I have experienced a couple lag moments and 1 or 2 connection failures but that was through 8 hours of online play over the weekend. When you sell 6.5 million copies in a couple days, things are going to be busy for a while. Should sort itself out in a month or so. I never had a problem with Black Ops but I didnt get that first day.

Good game. Graphics are great and weapons are good. Survival mode is pretty cool and we like the missions too.
post #107 of 824
I'm really enjoying the game, but I do feel like the maps are very tight w/ none of the open space that folks could use to position themselves and think out a strategy. Every map seems to be made up of dozens of murder lanes where spawns pop up behind your back. I hope the future map packs give us some room to move around.

I seen the IGN video where BOBBYA1984 is playing MW3 & it had wanting to play the MP. Is it worth me getting?

i don't think it is. really, if you've played the other cod games, then you've already played this game. i'd take that money and spend it on a game that you haven't played. for me, this is the last cod game i'm ever going to buy. this series is dead to me. same 'ol, same 'ol. and despite raking in 400 million on the first day, they won't invest a dime to fix any of the issues. so f 'em.

+1 - I had to quit after three rounds of domination. I went 5-16, 4-12, and finally 7-24 (always been at the bare minimum 1.50 k/d in other FPS MP games including BO). I honestly 100% am telling the truth when I say, the last round, 17 out of those 24 deaths were within 3 seconds of spawning getting killed from behind. Thats when I had it and turned the game off even though I was "cleared" but the SO to play for a few hours. Oh well, I may replay UC again...

Yep! Same here...

what isp do you have? and what is the advertised speed you get?
post #114 of 824
I get good connections, always 3 or four bar but still get some lag, the action skitters along, spawn killing (both ways), and then the maps seem to be all run and gun style, no where to camp if that's what you want to do.
Plus the turrents/sentry are so easily defeatable that they're a joke, it's far too easy to take down a chopper or UAV, it's far too easy to steal a care package...some of that is just gimmicky nonsense that I don't even bother.

I do enjoy the game so far though, MP has been fun.
post #115 of 824
everyone i know has this stuttering BS. and now infinity ward thinks it's only the fault of certain ISPs. that is garbage. this is never getting fixed.
post #116 of 824
It's a shame the lag is still so bad. I picked this up on Monday and been enjoying the SP quite a bit (finished end act 2). The story, while still fantasy land, is well told and easier to follow this time. Veteran doesn't feel as tough as Black Ops or MW2 so far and I'm 2/3 done, still challenging though.

I've been avoiding the MP waiting for the lag to die down and/or another patch. That Kill Confirmed looks like too much fun so might jump in anyway.
post #117 of 824
Just finished the campaign... it's.... ok.... 4h45 to complete. Happy I got the game for free and will return it for store credit this weekend.
post #118 of 824
this game sucks. anyone on the fence that is reading this -- do not waste your money on this game. it is terrible and has the worst connection of any cod i've ever played, going back to cod 4.

it's not worth the frustration, imo.
post #119 of 824
Its pretty balanced. Hard to dominate like the old games. Kill confirm and domination in ground war is pure carnage.
post #120 of 824
Thanks! Between this and Resistance 3, I have saved 120 bucks... lol
