Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

Noticed no difference at all going from a 2meg connection to an 80meg one.

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

No difference at all ?? I use to have a really laggy conection when I had the 1/2-1 meg connection and it would take sometimes up to 20mins to find someone too play as most would just drop out when the lag came up on the old FIFA

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

My sons play online and they've not noticed much difference. They 'host' alot more and there's no dropped connections when they do that's about it

 

When I play I still lose ! but thats because I'm rubbish.

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

So there's no advantage to hosting then??

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

not for me!! (again 'cos any host advantage is undermined completely by my lack of talent)

 

although my boys reckon there is some play advantage - I've simply not experienced it.

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

just asked them ; they say they win more . But on some games (not sure about fifa) the online servers compensate for lag and try to even it out.

 

On COD2 only the very 'slow' players really have much of a disadvantage (so I'm told)

 

but in my experience : infinity will give you a fast, consistent line where you host most of the time and which so some games will give advantage or at least no disadvantege and where other people in your household can do their thing at the same time.

 

e.g. earlier today my boys were playing something online and I was downloading a HD film - they didn't notice.

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

hosting is much better with infinity because of the upload i have found on the ps3, not sure about the xbox, but i wouldn't buy a piece of rubbish like that 😉

Re: FIFA12 and infinaty

I have the same ping with infinity that I did way back when I had 512k broadband! Higher speed broadband won't make a blind bit of difference to ping times, that's all down to what isp your with and the routing they use for your connection.
