Horrible Input Lag...

8 replies 1237 views Edited Nov 5, 2013

I haven't played Uncharted 3 in a while and went back to it couple days ago. All I can say is I'm still very disappointed. The multiplayer itself is fantastic. However, the lag is not. In fact, it's downright awful, one of the worse ever. I quit playing because of the lag and the lag IS STILL HERE. There shouldn't be this dying behind walls or getting melee'd then 5 seconds later, it responds. TLOU is much better with it but for PS4, whatever multiplayer is going to be fast paced like Uncharted MUST have better connections. Right now, it's STILL a joke in Uncharted 3... A bunch of South American parties doesn't help it either... Truly a shame considering how awesome the multiplayer is...

I think it's worsened by the fact that the game is two years old, compared to TLOU's barely a year.

I experience more lag since the patch.

 

I can hardly escape death anymore. I can either shoot or throw back a grenade or punch or run away. Many of my opponents can shoot, throw grenades, melee, throw grenades back and run away all at once basically. Sometimes they throw my grenade back multiple seconds after it hit the ground, sometimes they melee me when I'm at the end of my roll. I've even been punched from a guy who was a floor above me. Really annoying.

 

I have to do my very best in every situation now while it seems that everyone else can just kill me with ease. It truly annoys me. Maybe I need to downgrade my connection so I can keep up with their magic Smiley Tongue (just kidding of course).

Yeah the lag is awful even in Public co-op. I was really hoping with DLC free & the Ping adjustments to matchmaking things would improve just a little. Ah well Naughty Dog please don't be so generous with lag compensation next time around -.-

@David - I agree. Part of me hopes they're just working the kinks out of the new, ping based connections.

Also @David - What the heck are you doing posting on here at 5am? -_-

Oh btw, didn't see your question in chat til u were offline. Explains why you got off so early. You could make a career out of driving people to the airport lol. You already have a ton of experience with it.

I actually meant the netcode instead of input lag (don't know what I was thinking) but I really hope there's going to be dedicated servers. That would almost completely eliminate the issue.
