Whats the lag like in battlefield bad company xbox full version?

Bein playing the demo for the past week.
Now and then the tanks will slide side ways but the most anoying thing is if im playing demoltion and say i come round a corner and some ones running at me with a assault rifle i will give them a shotgun to the face at nearly point blank yet alot of the times i end up dying from there assault rifle which some times takes nearly a full clip to kill some one with.
Is this sort of lag just a problem with the demo servers and the patches EA have done are they just for the full version and has what they done improved things?
Love the game but can make for some anoying moments when stuff like mentioned above happens.

Taken the risk and bought this game. Not been in any rooms that have the side ways lag so far and i can use the sniper rifle now that the bullet don't take a week to travel the length of the map.
don't know why ea would run such bad demo servers as it nearly stopped me from buying the game.

EA has dedicated servers for BF:BC and it's dependent entirely on that.
I've had it, played and completed it. The online based gameplay is great when it works, but when the lag strikes, which is generally in about 50% of the rooms you get into it's stupidly bad.
Best thing to do is find a good room and stick to it. Although there are frequent times when the lag is server wide, so there are no good rooms.
My advice? Stick with COD 4 &  Mercenaries 2 on Co Op until GOW 2 :-)

Re: Whats the lag like in battlefield bad company xbox full version?

havent had the bad luck of being in a laggy room yet in the full version. was like that on the demo servers thoe had to keep finding rooms till i hit a good one.
happy with the full version severs so far my kill/death ratio is much better now i can use the snipers with out lag.
only had my xbox a few months. got grid first as i had that on my pc and bought the steering wheel which is a must as with the joypad i just got understeer with the wheel u just have to keep the oversteer under control.
Then bought a copy of cod4 its a good game but i find each match is pretty much the same campers jus keep going to same spot so easy to kill em.
with bad company its a case of do u leave the wall standing or knock it down so people with a camping style of play find it hard to do that in this game.
think i will play bad company to death till race pro is relesed in novmber now.

He has 20 meg cable....(lucky b.......) so lag tends to be less of a problem for him unless of course it's server related Angry.

Nope no room wide lag yet and played it a fair bit past few days ea must of sorted the servers out now.
The only lag I see is the odd player who's isp is virgin media hehe dont see the point of having 20-50mb cable when the other end of the cable ends up at richard branson's house of peak time congestion.
Yeah I will add you but i dont go on cod4 that much dont seem to have that addiction to it like most others.

A t the moment it's the best of the bunch for multiplayer.
it tends to get broken up by some Gears and Grid. But that will all change on the 21st when Midnight club comes out, which will keep us busy until the 7th of november, gears 2 and COD 6... expensive times!

Re: Whats the lag like in battlefield bad company xbox full version?

Grid is my most played game bought the microsoft steering wheel due to racing bmc fj 1000 on collisons off and the  lads on wheels could take alot of the corners flat out where on the joypad you just got understeer so had to give it a bit of brakes. best 70 quid ive spent in awhile.
next game im waiting for is race pro out mid novmeber think on the 14th.

Re: Whats the lag like in battlefield bad company xbox full version?

must say I've heard good things about the steering wheel.
Must warn anyone that reads this thread though... Don't go for a cheapo... get the official one, it's worth it!
