    Lag ruins MP

    Post by goober0331 on Wed Feb 22, 2012 8:13 pm

    Made an account to complain, yes complain about the lag. Its atrocious, its completely unnecessary for a game to have this laggy of MP in todays gaming world.

    All the lag-stabs, shots not registering or registering when you clealy are not hit by a weapon etc etc.

    FROM needs to clean up the MP if they intend to make another Souls game.

    Dark Souls is the first game for me in the Souls series, so I didnt know about the problems that Demon Souls had.

    But thats great to know that FROM has a knack for releasing games with laggy MP

    Lag is kind of a good thing. I mean, it obviously depends on the amount of lag but if there was no lag then parries would be all in the rage.

    So FROM is ment to break the laws of physics for people who dont understand how online works.

    Yes there are things they could do to improve lag and hide it. But the fact is, if you play online with people from all over the world, There will always be lag.

    Lag is in every online game

    really EVERY online game there's not a single game that has MP that doesn't get drawbacks due to lag

    dark souls is an online game so it will have lag no matter what specially with people that have the crapiest internet you've ever seen or someone that on the other side of the fricking wolrd is gonna lag your game to hell

    there is no way to fix lag if FROM could,if EVERY game company could they would fix the lag in their games but they can't because they didn't find a way to get rid of it...yet

    everyone that plays games online has to deal and adapt to lag in order to enjoy the online

    lag is horrible yes but dark souls is not the only case that lag ruins MP

    How ignorant for you to say that. You assume that I dont know how the online works in this gmae, based on nothing I have said.

    The worldwide P2P is a completely asinine thing to implement into this game. Yes I know about the P2P, so I do understand how the MP works.

    You then agree that things need to be fixed, so why are you making such an aggressive stance towards me?

    Oh yeah thats right, your ignorant.

    lag is annoying not only in demon/dark souls its annoying on every other game that has online play

    lag is horrible yes but dark souls is not the only case that lag ruins MP

    I was waiting for someone to come and make this argument.

    Yes lag is in every MP game, but almost all other games that have the MP side do much better jobs to fix the lag, and there is a TON of less lag in those games compared to Dark Souls.

    The lag is terrible, plain and simple.

    But you know, the lag in this game isn't that bad from my experiences... Unless, you are connecting with people across the world.

    And the lag is awful in this game. Terrible, some of the worst I have seen in a game with MP. And no its not my connection as soooo many people are going to assume.

    its not meant for you its meant for anyone who doesn't know how online works if she was trying to bash you she would say it in your face from the beginning

    even if you say she indirectly insulted you well thats not her fault if you understanded it that way she meantfor everyone that doesnt know how online works
    you got it wrong

    If you are on the PS3 you are probably running across alot of the Japanese players. The server are not localized in the US like the XBL servers are. So you are at a disadvantage, ping wise, to a japanese player. This causes alot of "lagstabbing" and hit loss. Its not Fromsofts, they can't legitimize another half-million dollar expense on state-side servers for both platforms. XBL enforces region specific servers PSN does not. That said its Namco that made the call. As the publisher would handle oversea affairs, not the developer. Just be thankful we even got the game localized to begin with, Demons' Souls almost didn't come to the US. Perhaps Namco will listen to their Fans on the next title and open regional servers for the US. This post has already been done 100 times over on their forums, I suggest you add your 2 cents on the official forums to help aid our cause for state-side servers on the next title. Or, go buy an Xbox?

    I like to look at it as taking the good with the bad. If I sit in the Princess Chambers farming while human, I'll get say 2 good fights for every one or two lame ones. That's not a bad ratio, considering he's level 52 in a high traffic PvP area.

    Its annoying for sure but not to the extent that the MP is 'ruined'. If that was case, I doubt the disc would've stayed in my machine as it has since release date.

    If you don't like the lag in MP, then don't play it.

    You think thats "aggressive" lol you aint seen nothing yet. Me thinks you need to harden up and not be so sensitive about posts in a forum.

    erm lol, I found out Mildred can sound a bit blunt at times when I posted about a run in I had with someone and I wrote the psn name, early at my start in this forum and I have not been here too long.I also Mildred is a dedicated part of the community and that's just part of the persona not the whole deal.

    Mildred I think didn't insult you at first but when you called it out yes, you gotta know how to handle the diverse personalities here and keep your cool, also I do agree sometimes people here can't respond in a civilized manner to comments and get immature, I mean if he has his opinion and is wrong then help him understand passively what your logic entails.

    Mildred handed me my a$$ that time and I believe it never got out of hand but she can get scary winking

    Mildred you scared me at first I'll say that.

    On the lag issue lag sucks and exists in everything as everyone said, what FROM should work at is making it easier for us to find fellow specific players and all that online, earlier I tried to play with tolvo from the forum and it was such a hassle and didn't work at the end.
