    Hit detection is a lot easier to figure out when bullets have a laser trajectory. Everyone wants arcing bullets, but to have that work from a shooter and target perspective exactly the same isn't nearly as easy.

    my biggest problem with these types of games is not the technical stuff, but rather the people who play them. is there anything worse than trying to enjoy an hour or two of downtime only to get harrased by some 14 year old?

    no.

    I welcome such things. You win if you get the child to cry.

    I'll take lasers over continually getting shot behind cover, around corners, etc, just because some jerk with a 500 ping wants to get his k/d ratio up on a server they have no business being in. I can appreciate realistic things such as bullet drop, but it's all negated due to the horrendous way the netcode is setup.

    The age has nothing to do with it, play league of legends. One of the harshest communities out there, and many of them came from Dota, so not a bunch of kids, but still a bunch of assholes.

    Sadly I agree. I like bullets that arc, but it seems with current engines it just isn't possible to do well. I think BC2 hit detection was better (yes sometimes you had to lead your target from the back, but I never died behind cover). I understand why DICE pushes it, and people want them to do it, and I like it to an extent, but when it doesn't work right in competitive play it gets annoying.

    Well actually hit detection isn't what it used to be on CoD since they now have LAG compensation...and its based on a P2P system which is great if your playing with friends within a mile or two of you but beyond 50~ it sucks real fuckin bad...I was playing and walked up behind someone and shot an entire magazine into them not one bullet registered but I was able to stab them to death....which is another problem with CoD as you can shoot someone a million times but it doesn't count for anything if they decided to stab you...from 30 feet away..

    CoD was a great game until it went P2P now it is utter garbage.

    The reason they cannot come up with anything decent is because the original creators left to work for EA. The guys making COD games now are just riding the coat tails of the founders. Soon DICE will finish them off and Im not even excited for BF4.

    And sounds like the guy who keeps on BS makes elder people bad as the kid. Eve all the phone calls made him suspicious and i hope he got banned him self.

    A kid and a BIG kid with a phone. Shame the little kid did not call him self to report harassment.

    Yeah IW isn't what it used to be. It's a travesty Acti are even allowed to call them that. DICE have become the new IW.

    Jason and Vince are talented guys, but the description of their current project has me wondering if even their work is becoming contrived and weak on substance.
