Whilst playing MW3, ever notice you get killed while running round corners? ever get killed with ltrally no time to react? Thats basicly the ''moneyshot'' of Lag Compensation. If i had to explain it in 20 seconds or less, you, as a player, with a good conection, get punished whilst people with a bad conection reek the rewards. Now FPS games of old had such a system, but back then it was more ''host protection'' with only the the compensation reaching as far as the host of the curtain lobby you were playing in. but Activision somewhat felt the need to add the compensation system to anyone on the opposing team with a ''less then average'' conection. of course your team has the compensation rule too but because you are on the same team you wont really notice it. Now this has enraged some people and benifitted some. Now I, Lt_K13R8N, would lke to know where you stand.

Don't even have to play the game to know it's not worth my time, especially when games like Skyrim and Skyward Sword are out there.

MW2=MW3=crazy unbalanced multiplayer.

It is absolutely unacceptable for MW3 to have that amount of lag, when there are SO many games that have fixed that problem.  I loved MW 1, and love COD titles in general, but they have never improved the formula, the matchmaking, or the multiplayer since COD 4.  That's like 4 games in, and they still have problems with that shit!! Absolutely dumb.  That's why I didn't even buy MW3.  I know it's going to be a great game, but I know I'm going to hate playing it after a while.  

I should mention in Battlefield 3, 99.5% of the play time is NEVER laggy for me.  I don't even mind when I completely suck ass in Battlefield, because it's not cause of lag.
