Well, if you have a firing arc of 14 or so degrees, and the guy is 4 km away from you and moving relative up while you're moving relative down, and there's a half second of lag... even if you adjust "in time", the fact is that while the server is lagging, it considers both of you to be moving along the last known vectors of velocity. Half a second of moving at the wrong velocity is death for a missile lock. And the best part is, the lag can come from you, the server, or the other guy, so there's three places there for a ****up to occur.

This is just one more reason why clusters are the best lock-on weapons in the game.
