What genius thought it was a good idea on making GSF in the 1st place? You know how hard it is to hit anything with a 200ms ping. I see my shots going through people and not getting hit reg, better yet i see my shots that miss by a mile and still reg a hit a times.

Bioware i think you need a better system that matches up people by region or GSF will fail, hmm too late i think already since i see people already hacking etc. Also it's funny to see rockets go through objects to hit people and it's happened to me a lot. Who ever made this game needs to be fired, and you know hire people who know what they are doing for a change.

Blah blah blah, don't like it - don't play it.

FYI, its just as hard to hit a lagger as it is for a lagger to hit someone. You people jump around my screen like an epileptic clown, making it a waste of my time to even try to shoot you down.

sounds like you need to call your ISP and get something done about that...

it's not Bioware, it's your ISP... unless, you just bought the cheapest internet package they had on offer than it would be purely your fault...

It happens, and it's not just your ping that is factored in, it's their ping as well. There are some games where I'll fire 6-7 times in a row against a single target and miss every one and I end up having to kind of guess if they're behind where I"m aiming or ahead, sometimes I've aimed a full 2 degrees ahead of where their ship was (with a rail gun) and hit, other times I've aimed a degree behind where their ship was on my screen and hit.. They aren't visibly lagging and my ping is under 100 for that game (about 80 usually) and I'll have some enemy targets that I have to aim ahead of some behind, and some dead center.

Then I go to another target and hit them every single time I aim dead center (unless they're a scout, then I hit half the time)

Watch out Bio fanboy right here ^

You assume a lot, I have a Fibre Connection by the way. My ping sits at 180ms-200ms solid all day every day.( when i was playing WoW i had a better ping of around 170ms from Melbourne Aus, so don't give me that BS that i have a crap internet connection bs ) I don't lag or see people warping on my screen. It's Bioware servers are crap, the developers are brain dead, since GSF has server side hit detection. Worst idea ever, since not everyone lives in the USA, you know not every damn thing revolves around the damn USA ffs.

I have a better idea, sub gone not coming back to this **** of game.

Wait, I thought 200ms wasn't good enough? If that's the case, maybe you should take his advice (and he's hardly a bioware fanboy for offering you advice on how to solve your problem instead of trolling you).

I've played with 2k, 3k ping all match. Immensely frustrating, but I still somehow got two kills out of the deal.

Most matches I play with something around 100ms-200ms and do just fine. Sure, there's the occasional kill where someone fires in a head to head and the hit contacts after they pass each other, but that's rare. You sure your hits aren't missing because of evasion?

It's clearly not when GSF has server side hit detection.

Another thing is that clearly some of the customer base is the issue as well, they put up with this ***** that Bioware throws at them and gives them money for it. It's just not EA / Bioware doing this and people are throwing money at half done games. Still ToR has bugs in it that where from release and still not fixed, that is down right disrespectful to the player base / customers and yet people still pay money for subs and Cartel Coins etc.

I subbed for 1 month just to see what has changed and low and behold nothing has. Bioware still do things backwards and the game balance is a bad as it was from the start in all aspects of the game.

Then maybe we're back to the issue of your ISP being crap.

I used to live in a house that payed Comcast something like $175/mo for 100 mbps down 50 mbps up... and the ping would jump from 100 to 1500 every minute or so.
