    Does anyone know anything about this or heard of it? I have heard that it started on black ops and continues in the MW3.

    It basically attempts to correct for gamer ping/latency and tries to level everyone out in terms of connection speed. However i have heard that on Black Ops and MW3 it has been done to the extent of penalising those with good connections and if you are the host of a game you are now actually at a disadvantage....

    All i know is that in COD4:MW1 my K:D ratio was 2.2+ and in COD5:WAW i had my K:D at 2.5+ and then COD6:Black-Ops my K:D was only 1.4 and now in COD7:MW3 it 1.1.

    Typical symptoms of lag compensation "how the **** did he shoot me he wasnt even facing me!" or "I shot him first!" or "I emptied a whole clip into his back and he turned around and shot me once with a pistol!" or "he shot me before he got around the corner!"


    .....familiar?

    Some stuff i found
