I'm sorry but the current state of the PC version of black ops 2 multiplayer is pathetic, I'm even thinking about getting the game on console instead because of the 10-20 times higher player base without the mind blowing LAG I have not seen worse in a game than it is now.

PC version might have the better graphics, but consoles for COD games have the better experience, this is a console game through and through, Battlefield is where it's at on PC.

I have a high end PC, I can play battlefield 3 maxed out 1080P 60FPS so it has nothing to do with my PC, I luv PC gaming. But this game is better off purchased on consoles in it's current state and way bigger player base.

I'm pissed at the lag and it's not just me the whole room in multiple matches was talking about how bad it is atm.

You must have poor internet as I have no problems with lag playing on a 15/1 connection. I did have some gpu lag but that was solved by turning a few features off which were lagging my paltry 460 768mb ancient gpu.

What features did you turn off in interest? I should have no problems running the game at all, but maybe there is a glitch or something weird going on with some graphics cards...

actually no, ill take that back since single player and zombies run perfect.

Is it dedicated servers or P2P?

I imagine it's going to be the same as the last Black Ops. Every version of the game is terrible except the 360 version.

There is no servers list on PC like in Black ops, so it's back to console style.........which makes me think there are no dedicated servers?

COD hasn't been worth buying on PC since COD1 and COD:UO

everything after that has been more twitch fests than anything which works really well for console games.

It has dedicated servers, but you are only playing on servers created by Treyarch. I don't think they're user created servers for Blops2.

I just haven't seen lag this bad ever in a game since counter strike on a 56K modem................................... everything else is running fine, I've had to check just to make sure it wasn't an internet issue, but like I said I'm not the only one since the whole room was talking about it and my 2 other friends with the game are having the exact same lag problems. Maybe it's not just on the PC, and the consoles are getting it as well...........?

From my experience, there's always network issues on CoD when it first releases even on consoles.

Past treyarch CODs suffered from random bouts of lag during MP on pc and ps3. I wouldn't be surprised if this one carries on that tradition but I hope you never run into any issues though.

Only played a quick round of zombies, connection was good, but it seems that Zombies uses p2p, only matchmaking uses dedicated servers? If there's lag then the servers must be f*cked, but I haven't played MP.

Zombies is fine, it's all treyarch and it's not like the servers are stressed with only 40k people online.

Just asked my nephew about this, he is into those COD rehashes for some reason and bought the game on PC. He reccons hes had no problems with the PC version. Check your internet connection/firewall rules.

Now all the console kids will be going around telling all their friends at school "but the PC version has LAG!" another untrue rumor for them to spread about PC gaming so that they can justify not having one. Like having to upgrade every month, PCs cant use controllers or be plugged into TVs, you have to spend hours installing a game etc. All because someone had a bad internet connection and decided to jump to the wrong conclusion.

MW3 was also laggy as **** on PC, but it was also laggy on system it released on. CoD is a laggy series, let's just leave it at that.

No need since everyone in the room is blowing out how bad it is. I also opened the ports up for the game and still rubbish.

BTW, people were saying Treyarch don't optimise PC games or whatever, it's running very smooth and graphics are not bad, controls well too. Should have gotten COD for PC a long time ago.

COD4 had it even worse, it's borderline unplayable.

Well Treyarch did care... World at War on PC was phenomenal. I loved it. The mod community was great, it was the first time we got zombies. Oh wow, just awesome. Ever Since MW2 it all went downhill on PC l0l0. I don't buy them anymore.

Stickies are stupid

a bunch of differnent conversations happening on top of one another, like trying to have a conversation with someone on the far side of a large table in the middle of a crowded restaurant.

I only played two multiplayer games and there was no lag to speak of, but my ping was fine. Compared to Black Ops 1 at launch on PC it works amazing.

Are you reading the same thread as me because all I see are people saying they have no problems with it. By the looks of it the only person having an issue is you.
