Lag - The Host Always Has The Advantage!

30 replies 484 views Edited Dec 1, 2012

If you end up being the game Host, you will always have an edge in this game.  Even if other people are lagging, you are the host, so if you drop the lagger before their laggy "killed you" data got to you...as the Host, you still killed them first.

 

So, to have an advantage in this game, get a better connection, and be the Host more!

 

Anyone have any other tips on what you can do to increase your chances of being the Host in DM, TO, or any other match type?

Yeah... every MP game is like that, no?

 

BUT... in U3 you have a bonus... if you're in a party and you're the host, you'll be split 80% of the time. Smiley Indifferent

See a Cinema File, the 1st person you see is the host.

 

In AC3 there are these bars beside your names, there'll be always only one green, that guy's the host.

Not unless you can somehow mentally compare the differences in lag, then no.
