    Before You Rage Because of Lag

    Before your rage, or even fuck your computer trying to fix your lag. Be sure to check the servers ping and location, BFBC2 uses dedicated servers, meaning they will not find the optimal server for you. For example, a server with a low ping and a location near you is prefered. I was experiencing some lag, and I realized I was connecting with India, ffs, but when I connected with a server near me, I returned to perfect gameplay. One way to can check to see if it is indeed your connection, play for a few min in the campaign. Hope this helps, peace.

    Read " Be sure to check the servers ping and location", and do you really think people are that stupid?
    And that is set to default.

    1, It Is Easier To Find The Location Of Where The Server Is Hosted.
    Say Your In, United Kingdom And A Server Is In France, It Wouldn't Lag As Bad.

    2, Theres Other Ways It Can Lag, Crap Video / Graphic Card Etc.

    Obviously there are other reasons, it's just that people sometimes underestimate their connection and do not think twice about that being their problem.

    *Update- Disable your firewall and virus protector, brought my latency from 400-500 down to 50-120

    Haha, a lot of people don't know to disable they're firewall. Also try reseting your router, do this by unplugging the internet and replugging.
