Here is took a screenshot also to make point a bit better, and just to be clear im not bashing the game but I have feeling the game will suffer from bad netcode. BFBC 2 net code is not good with 32 players in a server its bad. Also another thing to note bad netcode can easily be hidden with high Damage per bullets which is what I experience in BF 3 beta and alot of people will assume the netcode is good when its not.
IMO that's just a consequence of the fact that BF has bullet travel time and the latency between the server and the client. It's something most games have, unless they make sacrifices in other areas to get rid of the problem.
Also, why do people on this forum refer to it as netcode? Maybe I'm just blind, but I've been playing BF (and other PC FPSs) since 1942 came out, and I had never heard that term before joining here. Google searches also don't tell me much - is it referring to the hit registration or the client-server code? Also, where did it come from?
