One of the most annoying things in this game

 

You watch some dude bob back and forth behind a rock while he's lit up and you know he's coming out when his cammo kicks in

You fire through the place where he is and you always "miss"

 

and then he "magically appears" when HE fires at you

There's no sliding into view from behind that rock, he's the Harry Potter magic tank!

 

100% 

every time

 

very very annoying

 

60ping 60fps so it must be a nightmare for some players

Or try to fix that problem.
Is it your Internet? What is your ping?
Or is it your computer? Is it too old?

 

edit: Thanks for the completely unnessesary edit again.

Lmao that's not server lag, he's just hearing your shot hit the ground/rock when you miss so he peeks out when he knows you're reloading.

 

Basic common sense tactic. :facepalm:

Actually if I think about it I don't get it at problem levels in say Ghost town, where there's a lot of ridgeline and hilltops stuff against other players, (one of my favourite maps)

Enemy tanks hove into view when they should

 

It seems to be particularly acute with hiding directly behind rocks and the cammo being engaged

 

shazam! ....and he appears! right where my shell just went through

See, that's not lag, it's just you.

 

It's hard to explain...

Can't say I have the same issue. Even with a stable FPS and ping. Ping is only to one part of the server. Not every string of data to each part of it. That's what the light is for. If that goes between green and red constantly. You might want to trace your line.

I know how it works, its not a problem on a ridgeline, even at longer ranges, but it's a big problem when your enemy is hiding behind rocks

I'm assuming you've got a replay of this?

No

 

You should pin it at the top of the page, in flashy letters

 

IF YOU DONT HAVE A REPLAY DONT WASTE YOUR TIME POSTING

Well quite because then you wouldn't have created this thread.

That would actually be a good idea. Would spare us lots of nonsensical threads.

Alternatively, you could try to explain or check WHY the game is so laggy for you, like people asked for multiple times. So far, your thread is just 100% useless. Noone can help you if you don't provide information. No idea if a replay would help, but it's very easy to get one.
