MW2 Connection Speeds?
« on: December 01, 2009, 07:23:52 AM »
OK

When I go lookng for games in MW2 it says "looking for games with 50ms ping" or something

Now is that fast or slow?

Ok I am crap at the game but sometimes when watching the kill cam I wonder how the hell they killed me when I was out of site ~sigh~

Must admit I don't most of the time.

But last night it took ages to find and get a game going plus I dropped out of least 2 cause the lag was really bad.

I've had the host change 2 or 3 times and it only lags just before that happens. It's been pretty good so far.

I think 50ms is average and 35 is crap and 65 good?? Maybe, i am guessing of knowledge i think i know (?), but i could just be making it up to sound smart ???

Lower the better, 50 is average -50 is good, 50+ is bad anything over 100 and you will have lag.
COD searches for all servers with an average 50 ping when you actually join a server the ping will be different. high or low its why sometimes they get lag.

Hosts often create lag by downloading on their pc's to give them an advantage.

Not 100% sure but on cod 6 i think hosts are choosen based on there connection speed, if it drops below a certain point then the game stops and a new host is choosen.
Used to see it alot in older games, on the greatest xbox live game ever (RB6 BA) quite a few hosts used to do it often.
