Yeah Sage, Host has sucked for us (Me and Mrs.) since MW3. It has been a death sentence. Playing solo it's just a call it quits in that lobby. But with a party, I just deal with it. I love joining a match in progress because it seems I get full use of my connection. It tends to be glorious!

Yeah, it's sort of like you're playing a team of these guys:

I also love that host is still a death sentence in this game. 90% of the time when I get actual hit markers in hardcore it's because I have host... As soon as I rage quit after the umpteen death I et the inevitable 'migrating host' screen. Why, for the love of go, should having host be a handicap?
It's actually in line with the current culture... you have too much and therefore will be punished for it and have your speed redistributed. Obviously you are not paying your fair share of lag comp. wink.gif

Frankly, I would like to see what the game would be like with as reduced of a lag comp as possible or without. Just to see it and try it. Let the best connections rule. Thats how it used to be in the 90's

I'll take the lag comp from MW2 over anything we've had since.

I sure hope this means we will finally be seeing it in the regular rotation.

No thanks. I'll take the Blops code though.

Think I might play some MW tonight. I miss what having fun was like with COD.

I just read from a COD youtuber (Ali-A) that since Season 2, BO2 League Play uses dedicated servers. I will be trying that out ASAP for sure.

I've been playing Tomb Raider since it came out last week and haven't touched Blops since... it's been a very fun and refreshing change of pace.

I loved that game when I was a younger man. Seemed as time went on it became a lot more about jumping/climbing and less shooting...

There's more truth to that than poetry. My connection's increased "up to" 150 down/30 up recently, and things have definitely gotten tougher(too many hit markers for hardcore).

I highly recommend at least a rent. I loved the old ones as well, probably 1-3 and felt after that it lost it's charm and departed too much from the things that made it great. It is back in a big way with this release. They nailed everything from the breathtaking graphics, gameplay, story, combat, etc. It's also a solid R rating with some great gore which I love. I've probably put 10 hours or so into it and am only 50% through and still need to go back to search for some of the extras. I'm not as much of a gamer as some here, more of a movie/HT enthusiast so I really only buy COD and halo games but I gave this a shot after watching gameplay footage pre-release on Live and took a chance. I'm very glad I did, it really has been a great change of pace from Blops and the first campaign since Reach to really hold my interest.

I get teased by coworkers and friends. The same people who plop down on a couch at 1900 and watch American idol and whatever else mind draining reality tv show is on Monday through Friday. They kill the TV at 2300 and go to bed. I point out that I am unsure how that is OK and better to playing online games with other people.

I don't watch prime time TV. So I devote that time to gaming. Seems a better trade!

I do both, so what does that mean?

I always wondered what type of monitoring the feds do on Live. Seems ripe for burying coded conversations between cells.

Switched my camping set up to the LSAT from the MK48. Just slightly less accurate, but it doesn't seem to matter(I assume due to the larger volume of bullets getting their faster). K/D ratio was like 2.0 the whole night. Gonna stick w/ it 4 awhile...

I just started using the LSAT after finally finishing off that pos QBB. The LSAT seems much less accurate than the MK48. I seem to be having a hard time getting headshots with it because it bounces all over the place, even with grip.

Run wildcard primary
laser
silencer
thermal

remove the silencer and or thermal depending on what you are doing. I get lots of hip fired headshots but use the LSAT as a sniper rifle on HCTDM and have a ball with it!!

I always know the ammo amount thanks to the readout. the silencer does reduce some damage. I use it on the carrier and turbine maps.

Last night was brutal. You'd kill a guy (a guy as in one guy because getting a kill last night was about as easy as seducing a nun) and his tag would drop 10 feet from his body-- tell tale sign that lag comp was in full effect. After I jumped off I logged onto cod4 for just a minute and I can't understand why that game feels so much more 'connected' than this game. Like my inputs actually affect my character immediately-- I was over shooting on my aim left and right because I've just gotten used to blops deuce's lag...

Yep, and MW2 was about the same.

Last night was brutal for me too. After the novocain wore off from a 2+ hour root canal I felt like a Saw victim. A couple budwiser's and noro's later it still freakin hurt and last weeks Walking Dead was a bore so I didn't have a good night either frown.gif

Been using the silencer, haven't noticed a damage loss(but then again it's HC). I've been sniping w/ it using simply the hybrid(LONG distances on Turbine, etc.). Loving the new mil-dot reticle I bought. Profit generating sights now...sheesh.

I think I've figured it out. The one defining characteristic of blops2 and mw3 that makes them the weakest of the series: the inability to "turn it around". In both of the last two games if you're having a **** time there is no way to fix it. In previous games I would have classes I could throw on to counter a particular tactic or even combat lag-- but not in blops deuce! Once you get down you are going to stay there for the rest of the match and, most likely, the rest of your session. There's something about these two games-- call it lag comp, call it just plain lag, call it whatever-- but when you're on the receiving end: that's it. You're done. Finished.

Played some blops 1 after I jumped out tonight. First game: 3kd/win. Second game: 3kd/loss. Third game I was getting railed... Changed my game up and: 1.5kd/WIN.

I don't know how else to describe this... I don't put much stock in numbers but I think in this case they speak volumes.
Mw2 (my first cod mp experience): 1.5kd <--- and this is up from less than 1.00 for my first five prestiges! (I'm a slow learner wink.gif )
Cod4: 2kd
Blops: 2+kd (and this is mostly solo play btw)
Mw3: 1.6kd
Blops2: 1.3kd

Maybe I'm just getting old? Funny thig is I can go back into those old games and rip it up still! And before anyone says: better players are playing the new cod-- just stop. If anything there are more terrible players playing the new cod! The old games at least have players that seem to know what they're doing.
