few of you have been playing in my parties now i've sorted my net out.

everything seems great until the map wetwork comes up.

no kidding i can't even walk on that map, it is EXTREMELY bad, i teleport all over the place & it's completely unplayable for me (some of you may have noticed my 30+ deaths & less then 10 kills a couple of times !!!).

the ridiculous thing is that everyone else in the game seems completely unaffected.

i've had bog come up a couple of times while hosting ground wars & the issue doesn't come up there at all, only ever wetwork & not ground war, just normal 6v6 games.

any ideas on why it's happening ???? at the moment if that map comes up & i'm the host please skip it or i'll have to close the lobby & reform.

If I remember rightly, that map gets a bit laggy when I'm hosting games on it too. No-where near the extent you're experiencing tho.

I can have horrid games when I host Wetwork - exactly what you are talkng about. When its raining (in the game) it's especially bad, and then comes along a helo which makes me "lag" even worse.

Trust your guns I've found, aim and shoot as if your NOT lagging, and you can still get the kills. Dunno what it's like from the other's perspective in the lobby...

Don't worry mate, my interwebz is supreme and it still happens with me. We all know that i have the best internet and am the best host in AUF.

I think it's due to the amount of random grenades that are being thrown and the all round nature of the map...It just fails.

mineys connection goes up and down, seems to be in sync with how he moves. He gets hit to last stand and it lags, just walking around its fine... makes me wonder sometimes.

You probably haven't port-forwarded/enabled DMZ properly :p

Yeah i ALWAYS use my lag switch when you're in the game. That would explain it...

I had the same issue Graph ... After my line was fixed (the result nearly doubled my old speed) it sorta removed the issue. However, i still get a bit of lag from time to time. Whats your line connection these days??

heres mine
Upstream - 932 kbps
Downstream - 6044 kbps

i do this on bog no other choice really it's just one of those maps

tho wetworks doesn't do it that bad for me anymore only when i have red pings in the game.

bog and wetwork are natural laggy maps for most hosts

i wouldn't worry about it much graph

i upload at 960kbps and download at 18553 kbps with a ping of around 23ish and i lag like a mother trucker on wet works if i have anyone with yellow or red ping its not as bad as u have described though graph but my connection seems to handle bog rather well except with red pingers in the game.

i have my modem dmzed so i have no problems with anyone joining my games usually which is good before i dmzed my modem i had alot of problems with ppl joining der are also good speed boosts for my net and stuff once it was done

since day 1 wetwork and also bog have been problematic for me while hosting also, and others as mentioned... nothing new mate, surprised you weren't already aware...

thanks for all your input guys, really appreciated, sounds like it's just a map that has to be skipped if i'm the host :(
