Well network adapter just refers to an ethernet port itself (used to be a separate card; now onboard) but no one uses the term adapter to describe other ports, onboard or not, such as video or USB, at least these days…and external USB audio devices are usually called "USB sound cards". It's just semantics.

I would actually be curious to see if a higher quality NIC ('network interface card') would make any kind of difference for those plagued with the worst net code issues; but really I think it's mostly ISP and server-side. Likely worsened by their damn lag compensation algorithms.

its a combination of the lag compensation and the tick rate/client to server/server to client update rate.
the networking half of the game was written for console and microstink ordered that anyone in the world could use their mobile phone as a modem and be able to play the game. all that crap was ported straight over to pc.

i've been meaning to get BF4. Every time i want to order it, all the bad review on amazon stop me.

so be honest with me. Is it ALL that BAD?! given the amount of time that it has been out. STILL bad?

my set up is i7 3770K - GeForce GTX 770 (4gb) w/ an 8 gb RAM stick. I've been playing Titanfall on max setting and it's smooth like butter.
I also thought half of those complaint are base on people that barely meets the minimum hardware requirements.

please let me know. thank you.

the game can be fun. if you like to lonewolf, no it isnt. get in a good squad and work as a team and it isnt real bad. when you work as a team the only really bad part is shooting people and knowing you hit them 20 times and they turn around and what appears to be, 1 shotting you. its more than aggravating.

thanks, half of that makes me want to get it and try, the other half doesn't sound so good. hahaha

titanfall is good and fun. the agility is definitely more fun than most FPS. but lacks teamwork. everyone is lone wolf, gets boring fast. hardly anyone ever voice chat and coordinate. if they do, it's always some @hole spouting BS.

BF4 sounds great for the team work, net code stuff sounds horrible. it's $24 on origin, i'll try it out and see later today.
thanks!

It's fine, sometimes you'll kill someone when you shouldn't have and sometimes you will die when you shouldn't have.That happens a couple times a game, big whoopty whoop. As far as playing as a lone wolf, I do it all the time, and I still have fun. Just play the objectives and you'll have fun. Don't take it too seriously, don't act like being good at a game makes you a seal, and you should be fine. A lot of egos floating around FPS games for some reason which is very, very laughable, if you aren't one of those "types" you'll have fun. Oh and playing in a squad is a lot more fun I am not arguing that, just saying you can still have fun just by playing the objectives and by doing that you'll probably be in the top 3 almost every game.

Oh and like iliterate said earlier, if you join a game with people with >100 pings, just leave and save yourself the aggravation. The lag compensation will make them gods among men.

I pretty much always lone wolf...play late at night and I have no friends. I still do fairly well.
That said the netcode is still between laughably broken and just laughable for the most part.....I will say that mileage varies by server.
Also 0 Net Smoothing Factor and a 70 FoV tend to net me the best results....placebo? Possibly. thumb.gif

Best way to have fun.

Don't expect team-work. Don't expect majority of people to cap flags or whatever. Do ignore chat, though funny at times, it's not worth it. Expect some weird stuff to happen when you kill and when you're killed. If you want to grind, ignore Metro, use Lockers. I think there's a lot of good things in the game but the odd things and the unpredictably of things does put you off after awhile. Last but not least, try another server if things are just too weird. It's not your end most likely.
