    It's pretty obvious that split screen multiplayer caused the most lag. Not sure why it's allowed

    Deus Ex has been my saviour. MW3 was nasty today and Deus made a good afternoon filler.

    I really enjoyed this game and you're right it is a perfect filler in between better games.

    That's cos the lag compensation gives dudes with sh*t connection an advantage :D

    On a serious note though, Laen (stallone) has an awful connection, something like 0.8mb down/0.2 up. His GF has Virgin 50 meg, he says when he played Black Ops at her house he found it much better, but with MW3 it's the other way around and he actually does better on his home connection.

    He always plays the objectives and manages a 2 k/d as well, and you run about with hand tools and a stanley blade and still manage to do well.

    Sh*t internet ftw! :laugh:

    Blops doesn't even play for me on my 30meg Virgin Connection! It's as tho it's running at 15fps.

    MW3 plays fine as long as I'm not host.

    Game has played like a nightmare the last few days, struggling to get kills or go positive. Is it just me?

    It's not just you. I found a fix though. Livestream and then people will struggle to kill you, hahahahahahahahahaha... or just nerf the crap out of your connection seems to do the trick.

    Just an observation...it would seem to counter any lag or connection issue SnD is now plagued with tubers. Or at least more then normal.

    It's terrible since the last patch. Pre patch you would get a few terrible lobbies, which I can understand tbh. Now it's every single lobby, every single night without fail, shambles.

    I have 2 Internet connections in my house and 2 playstation 3's one on the house one in my "office"

    Te one in the office only has the ps3 connected and the other one has everything else connected

    Both are rural lines with upto 5mb up and 0.something down with a 75ms + ping

    The one in the house I cannot play MW3 on as I get frame rate issues and owned on if I try and use it and it often won't connect if I am downloading something on my Mactop

    The faster one is better and I manage to keep a 1.6 kdr alive so to me it seems you need a better connection to be able to compete although I don't have a super highway optical bb to test against

    Need to vent. Getting absolutely smashed by terrible players in FFA. Running 0.3 KD over last few games. All due to me getting host.

    So I started uploading a massive random file on my laptop. Streamed a YouTube vid on it too. streamed a YouTube vid on my phone and I STILL get host. So annoying that no matter what I do I can't avoid pulling host. Any suggestions people

    Same here. I didnt play it for over a week and the craving started again, loaded it up, had 2 games then turned it off. Have not played it again now for nearly a week.
    The game is a pile of ****!

    Get rid of it like I've done - biggest pile of camel poop from IW - shame on you :thumbsdow

    P2P worked very well with COD4/MW2 but this lag compensation has ruined the game imo - I even cancelled my 50mb Virgin and went back to slower sky connection (got a cracking deal too :smashin:) and the game was marginally improved but after a couple of weeks with new connection and playing COD games since COD4, I've finally laid them to rest (sold MW3).

    I'm completely stress free now and can enjoy the other games like SSX on Friday :D

    Moral is 'next time you come across a pile of camel's poop in your home, clean it up and throw it out instead of just looking and putting up with it' :cool:

    Then stock up on blood pressure tablets. ;)

    So you had 50MB broadband just for COD?

    No - I had 50mb broadband (plus TV & phone) initially installed because of a deal I got and that deal bettered Sky at the time ;)

    I went back to Sky, again because of a 'come back' deal, and thought that the 'lowered/slower broadband would improve MW3 because with the 50mb Virgin, I was host most times and my game was ruined :thumbsdow

    I'm glad I went back to Sky and don't miss MW3 at all :thumbsup:

    I would have gotten 50mb if I had that option. Instead I'm stuck with 18/1.5 at non-peak hours.

    Stupid game :( this game worked great when it first came out lag free it was a different league from flops. But now patch after patch it's a pile of steaming mess. On the plus side I've found shipment :) been playing cod4 all week great fun, I've had two hacked lobby's 1) supper speed 2) some noob had god mode, But no lasting damage. Lots of snipping great fun. Oh and I upset everyone when I left a game as I was host oops.
