Black Ops lag issues being addressed on PS3

Rizwan Anwer

So as many of you know Black Ops is still a fantastic game but there are certain problems, the net code is a bit unoptimized which leads to massive lag in online games with ping as low as 1 bar and the highest being 3 bars. This problem persisted on the PC version and was recently patched by Treyarch and is available for the steam users to download.

Treyarch is also working on addressing the ping issue on the PS3. While ping isn't that much of an issue for me when I set the game to regional match making It does get rather annoying when what I see is me emptying half of my Enfield into an enemy and him not dying but in the kill cam I see it a bit differently, then when I take a sneak peek into my ping I see I only have 1 bar which is probably the reason why I think my bullets miss. During the games initial release there were host problems which have now been resolved, whenever the first host of a TDM or ground war left the game would take me back to the pre game lobby and rechoose a host or most probably end the lobby I am glad to see that Treyarch is aware of the situation at hand and is taking their time to address these issues, I look forward to getting better latency in Black Ops.
