- On line gaming – does connection speed make a difference?
I’ve upgraded by broadband and went from 3mbs to about 50mbs.
Now I occasionally play CoD online with my Xbox.
I am pretty crap and generally come last or 2nd last.
Now with the fast connection I finish higher up and seem to win more of the sudden “face to face” skirmishes.
Is this the connection speed?Posted 4 years agoscuzzMember
Yes and no.Posted 4 years ago
as others have said, low ping is usually good and puts you at an advantage. However, COD allegedly has a lag compensation thing that tries to balance this factor out.
So, you’re at the mercy of algorithms really. Years ago, low ping was the advantage, you’d see where players used to be but your game would register a kill: the enemy wouldn’t know what killed them!
