what are people’s thoughts on being able to choose between dedicated servers and peer to peer connections? or just straight reducing/removing lag compensation etc,
e.g the devs tried to say the kill cam was broken, but it never was, all the kill cam did was show how the lag compensation was working,
an article titled ’ Game Design Implications of Lag Compensation’ off of developer valve software website,
The inconsistencies that sometimes occur, however, are from the points of view of the players being fired upon.
For instance, if a highly lagged player shoots at a less lagged player and scores a hit, it can appear to the less lagged player that the lagged player has somehow “shot around a corner” In this case, the lower lag player may have darted around a corner. But the lagged player is seeing everything in the past. To the lagged player, s/he has a direct line of sight to the other player. The player lines up the crosshairs and presses the fire button. In the meantime, the low lag player has run around a corner and maybe even crouched behind a crate. If the high lag player is sufficiently lagged, this scenario is quite possible. Then, when the lagged player’s user command arrives at the server, the hiding player is transported backward in time and is hit.
it also explains why ‘sponging’ is so apparent in the game and wannabe good players developing ego’s saying ‘JuST hIt Ur ShOtS’ because lag comp bailed them out a situation without them earning a kill because they are lagging,.
if it was rare i’d ignore it but it affects over 80% of my games,
i should have left gears with my friends mid gow4 but i grew up on epic shooters and shouldn’t have to quit just because who the devs are, i still hold fantasies epic will rebuy the franchise one day,
getting my 1gb down 100 up , 5 ping connection, 1ms montior punished consistently almost every single match is tiresome
hopefully peer to peer servers return or lag comp is heavily reduced/removed,
before anyone cries ‘hit your shots’ ‘kill cams were broken’ ‘get good’ despite all the evidence proving otherwise,
this is just wondering how many people left playing want the games fixed/gow 6 improved or if its just new gamespass players remaining hoping the game continues to support high ping/lagged players
