Wow really?

118 replies 1120 views Edited Feb 22, 2013

LOL,

So since I bought my wife a ps3 I figured I'd upgrade my net.

We play a fair bit of battle field and it wants SOLID connections or it will kick you.

 

My connection was a 25 mb service.

This is a before pic. Most of the time it was around 23 down and 7 up.

We were both playing online when I did this test.

Now I went to this myspeeds.JPG

 

Uncharted is completely unplayable for me now.

The lag nearly doubled. Not what you would think when upgrading.

Now I see NO ONE FROM THE U.S.

 

I just cant believe how much this game changes for the worse with the better your connection gets.

 

I want to be the reason you're looking down at your phone laughing as you walk into a pole.

I've said it before: lag compensation is the most OVERPOWERED mechanic in this goddamn game!

http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Source_Multiplayer_Networking#Lag_compensation

Low latency is a significant advantage when playing a multiplayer online game. Techniques like prediction and lag compensation try to minimize that advantage and allow a fair game for players with slower connections.

ND should stop trying to favor laggers. As Sleaze would say: "one time!".

I've had the same feeling when I switched from homeplug to ethernet cable. I always thought it was just a coincidence but this game truely favors people with a poverty connection.

Uncharted favours laggy people, Nuff said. My connection isn't perfect, but compare it to other games like Crysis. I see less lag on Crysis then on Uncharted. ._.

Lag in Uncharted? No no, we here at Naughty Dog know how great are game is, that it isn't our fault and w- hey we noticed you haven't used any tournament tickets recently, would you like to use some now?

Same thing here.
Played at friends house, he have a really bad connection (2mb down, 1mb up). Hardly noticed any lag at all.
Came home (If I play wired and have everything else shut down (wifi on iPhone and laptop) I get around 23mb down and 13 up.
Lagfest everywhere Smiley Very Happy
