How to spot host-booters?

[ Edited ]
10 replies 1172 views Edited Aug 16, 2013

Does anyone of you know how to recognize a host booter in this game? 

 

Me and my friend just played a match of supply raid where we managed to kill off atleast 5 of the enemy team members in the first 2 minutes or so. 

 

Around 5 minutes latter, my friend reported that he was disconnected. I kept on playing for another couple of minutes, but ended up being disconnected also.

The host more than likely had a bad connection that caused your friend then you to be booted.

I really don't think it was intentional.

Try to avoid lobbies where players don't speak the same language as you. It doesn't fix every thing but it sure freaking helps.

I want to be the reason you're looking down at your phone laughing as you walk into a pole.

It could very easily be a host booter.  I've run into more than one in various games, and I've experienced the familiar symptoms of host booters in this game, too.  It's not even difficult to do, provided you know how.  And when everyone is systematically removed from the match, it's hard NOT to believe you've been host booted.

Your talking about force hosting.


Seen it on cod pretty often.

It's not some thing that is ever been prevalent in any ND games.

Most cases it is caused by being in a match with several players from over sea's and one of them is host.

Your connection may not be strong enough to stay in that match, resulting in you being kicked.

 

The large amount of players claiming hackers on this game is from players that are new to ND titles.

Many of these issues are prevalent in ALL of ND games.

 

Freezing tele porting players, invisible players, invincible players, random kicks from match, bending bullets, players taking extreme damage,  and many other out of normal game play oddities.

 

ND titles handle lag waaaay different than other titles I have played.

Wait six more months when the player pool becomes only die hard fans that get matched with players 12,000 miles away with internet connections not suitable to send a text file.

 

EVERY issue that I have seen on these forums regarding HACK'S has been in Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3.

 Lag does AMAZING things in ND games.

 

Though one thing for certain I have seen more lag switchers in this title than all of U2 and U3.

Sad really if you think about it, your and I get mad when some one does it to cheap but it maybe the only way that player can actually kill an opponet. I don't get mad, I just feel sad for them.

Then Host booting can't be a crime if you'll allow people to keep Host booting which does really put viruses on your PS3
