90% of this is total crap.

I'd break it down from a developer perspective but in reality most of it will come out as over technical jargon. I also have to be up in 3 hours


This guy is an idiot and knows nothing about latency compensating methods, client-server in game protocol, network development, rendering, game loops, or math.

EDIT:

This video does a great visual job in showing some fallacies about resolution in F1st's original video.

Verizon FiOS 20d/10u FTW.

It's common knowledge that being host in any COD with a great upload rate and low pings means you killin dudes silly. When I switch from Verizon DSL to FiOS, my download/upload increased by 7x and my ping went from 50 to 9.

I'm not sure about all that angle / degree jazz though

My speed came in a 21-Down and 5-Up. My damn ping is 53 though which comparing to Boosts numbers, its pretty high.

Sadly true.

My damn ping is in the 250-500s.
About 50-+%% at 4am.

Internet here is a #%&*ing joke.
This was lunch time here (around a 12-hour time difference from EST) the other day.



Worst one I've experienced so far.
