Lag doesn't favor the aggressive. If you're behind you can't make up being in their screen 1st when their ADS waiting on you.

I have tried ADS'ing over a headglitch box. No matter the range, the rifle, the spot, the enemy team, it's ineffective because people can approach me, sight me up, pull up sights and pick me off, looooong before I see them.
Wait....it favors aggressive players.
No it doesn't....becuase, now that I have his lingo, my player model AND my hitbox travels ahead of me / what I am seeing. This is exemplified by me not being able to walk through doorways and openings all the time, by me getting killed by a corner camper I prefired on as I turned a corner, of by how I can die before I have even rounded a corner.
Who is favors are those in the connection hub: Like he said, those closest together experience the least lag.
It also favors, as he said, those with really bad internet. I don't have the Homescrub or Alpha connection of 60+ (which, I think they both got rid of), but I have decent enough that it will pull me for host on BO almost every game, and decent enough that I become a major donor to those with say, 3-5 Mbps, or lower.
Add to that the thousands of miles that I live from the population hub and there you have it explained.

You can't play ahead of what you see. Bottom line. You can play ahead of what other people see but you can't trick people who are looking at you before you know they're standing there.
If I have 10 moneys
And shitty guy has 1 moneys
You give him 5 of my moneys so he's no longer crying because you're taking from me to put him above his earnings. How the F is that advantageous to me? You can't take away to add more. Stupid people be stupid.

Look at scores in COD4, guess who's host and ask how much they were lagging behind 3-17 2bar guy. You take that same 1v1 of host vs 2bar African and he would kill you 3 times before you saw him in MW3.

Within a few months, I was able to wreck in pretty much every lobby, thanks to what i learned from watching xcal.
Have I gotten worse since I first learned to play?
Be like thinking I got worse at walking once I took my first few steps.
The game now works against me, mostly in the lag compensation area. If it was born in COD4, then they fcked it up eveytime after that.
Maybe they need the system to stop logging all the stats, saving all the game data, saving to theater evey game for tens of millions of people, stop having 2348971256487 different killstreaks and perks that fck with the game engine because it's 20 years old.
No, I haven't gotten worse since I learned to play, and people haven't gotten measurably better. The way they dole out connections, compensate for lag, where they spawn people, how they spawn people, and why they spawn them there, has changed the game.
No need to be good. Just need to have connection on your side.
THAT is the determining factor in this game. nothing else.

What happens when Alaska joins against Asia? Who comps who if they 700 ping from each other.

3500 miles between me and any Puerto Rican.
3800 miles between me and any Venezuelan
I play solo, I pull up PR and Venezuelan lobbies more than anything.
Come to think of it, I have never pulled a local lobby in 10 days of MW3 playtime ('local' meaning within 600 miles of me--which is the distance between DoubCross and I).
I've lost count of the PR and VEN lobbies. And seeing the awesome speeds that come out of the VI, i know the PR's and Venezuelans aren't providing any usable bandwidth.
The game now favors third world players.

Nothing favors third world countries.
Can't tell you how many times I've lagged behind someone just as much as yall.

PR may have it available, but people playing MW3 sure aren't the ones with that service.
PR and Calgary are equal distances from Ohio (as our baseline location), but PR is double the distance from me. Why can I never beat a single PR player?
They have all the donated bandwidth.

I cant tell who Lag favors. I ran a test a long time ago where I completely tanked my net. I figured out how to drop it to 3 bars from 4 bars. I even dropped it to 2 bars, but buffed it back up again lightly. I noticed no real advantage. However I have never played with a 60mb + connection so I cant tell you if they get an advantage.

If you're red or yellow, it's like the system kicks in and is like "oh sht....jesus nigga, where the fck are you fro....forget it.....can't show that....here's......uhhhh.....4 bars Mr. Tazmania."
4 bars gives the worst experience, as does 3....and 2.....wait a second. Bars don't mean shit?
Bars don't mean shit.
