One of the worst netcodes I've ever encountered

7 replies 207 views Edited Jan 4, 2013

wow. I"m truly shocked at how horrid this game's netcode is. I played today only to encounter hits not registering, damage being taken way out of the assigned range, people failing to get launched in the air. It was zero fun. I don't see many casual fans playing this simply because you shouldn't have to plan a course of action based around a terrible netcode. Maybe the very small hardcore will but the casuals will not. I hope it gets better because it does have some potential but the performance is just too shoddy. I love GoW and anticipated this component but it's shaping up to be something that will be dead a month after release. Santa Monica has ALOT of work todo in a little bit of time.

It was like this on the 3rd too... really odd game play that I've never experienced before.

Ive played it for some time and you do kind of get used to it but I have to agree somewhat. The netcode is not as smooth as it should be and this could turn off a lot of people.

yeah, the netcode needs to be improved. I am tired of lag allowing ppl to get away with abusing the game's mechanics.

Been experiencing this to and it's really annoying getting killed because of this.

Guess I'll jump on the bandwagon for a moment and say that I'm starting to wonder about this myself.

 

I just finished two matches with an enemy who was parrying and grappling me for actions I finished taking over half a second before.

 

I'd be halfway through a Triangle attack (Zeus Hammer and Minotaur Hammer), and he would suddenly grapple or parry me as if I was still dodging or using Square. His I-Frames would kick in during my combos, and I'd also be hit by his triangle even if on my screen I'd hit him first (usually with a light attack.)

 

I understand that there has to be a decision making process for the game when two console viewpoints collide, but it's still irritating that I get sent flying from an attack I was countering.

 

EDIT: I just want to be fair and say that I get up really early, and that this time of the day isn't prime, and I was probably being placed with international players.
