    Is it just me or in that past week have you been quick as fuck? Everytime I come around the corner someone's shot me before I even saw them. Watch the killcam and it shows it like the person was sitting there staring at me for three seconds before they even shoot. I can't even stand a chance lately! I see someone come around the corner across the map and suddenly three bullets fly at me and I'm dead before I can even bring up my sights! It's like they know where I am at all times! -sigh- it's really taking the fun out of the game because I can't even do shit now. I can't win a single gun fight because it's like people are shooting me before I can even react. I know it's a fast-pace game and all but it's like everyone's reaction time has suddenly skyrocketed and now I can barely break even in a match. I don't remember dying this quick before. Maybe I'm just in a slump or something, but has anyone else been having this experience lately?

    Firing range has been a pain in the ass for me, 9/10 times when i spawn i get killed by someone running round the corner, spawning on that map seems abit gay. Other than that it's not been so bad.

    It seems like I get nothing but decent-good players now, but I guess it's because I'm a 15th prestige and matchmaking isn't as bad as it was before. Seems like all these players have perfect aim and use the best weapons in the game.

    I miss the good old days, and the christmas noobs.

    Seems like I die in a heartbeat, I know how you feel man.

    It is a problem with network lag. Especially as the host or with a good connection to the host you will see people a fraction of a second earlier than they see you or vice versa. It is pretty bothersome but you can't help it, it isn't you.

    Well i'm pretty sure it hasn't changed. And I have no clue how to figure that out.

    There has been an increase in SR-71's being used recently because the noobs have all started to realize Ghost doesn't work on it.

    It also means that those noobs have figured out how to get a 7/8 killstreak.

    But yeah there are patterns/phases to this game. I don't know if certain areas/locales are in different patterns than others or if it's a vicious infectious circle. Forums like these and youtube videos increase this effect too. I see a lot of flak jacket and ghost when playing DOM. These days I've noticed a decline in RC-XD and in second chance but more spy planes, counter spy planes and blackbirds.

    Blackbird phase now, counter spy plane phase soon to follow.

    You will be surprised what a a reset to your modem does. When my ping/download speed is shit I restart and everything is good again. Just google search "speed test" and report results.

    This is due to the host being too far away from you. If the host is in france and you are in vancouver, youre going to have a hell of a time killing someone who sees you at the same time as you. All I do when I notice this is play like a jackass, like a campy little s**t, its not your fault you have 1 or 2 bars and the host is from accross the world, so play safe and stay away from areas where you cant get the drop on someone, because when this happens it seems the only way to kill people is when you have a few seconds to open fire on them.

    Same here...was making good progress until this weekend and then I've just been getting worked. I never really think anyone's cheating, but the fact that I'm running ghost, no blackbirds, and the enemy starts shooting just as he appears around the corner (in the killcam as well), and all the bullets are dead on, it is kind of frustrating. Granted, I'm not the best there is, but I think I'm better than I've been playing.

    Probably a phase.

    But in any case, why don't you try to use a setup that is finalised towards cqc situations? By this I mean:
    1) use a fast shooting weapon. For ARs, a Famas or Aug, for SMGs either the Ak74u or MP5 w/rapid fire (I would exclude other SMG with higher rof as they take more bullets to kill. But if you feel the extra rof of those is something you might need, try the Spectre as it's the one with the greatest magazine capacity amongst those SMG with 1250 rpm)
    2) use Steady Aim pro and hipfire only in CQC. Steady Aim keeps your bullets nice and tight and another nice advantage is that if you hipfire with that, you can fire before your enemy goes into ADS (I know it's only 0.10/0.25seconds, but sometimes it makes the difference between whacking and getting whacked).
    3) use a good headset (example: turtle beach) and keep Ninja Pro equipped. You'd be surprised how many people out there go around sounding like a truck full of empty cans and think you can't hear them coming.

    Other than this, I don't think there's more help available. At least, I can't think of any, really.

    Good luck!

    maybe I need to switch off of that, because all my issues have actually come since i did that.

    Who knows? maybe I had host advantage before and now i've just brought everyone else up to my level (connection wise) and i've just always sucked...

    Last night I couldn't get into a game without serious lag issues.

    My last game before I turned off the PS3 was Array where everyone on my team had 1 bar and everyone on the other team had 4.
