LAG? Client vs. Host Comparison

So what exactly does "lag" mean and how does it affect us when we're playing?

Lag is a very common occurrence in most online games, especially when playing with people from all over the word.

The term Lag basically just means failing to keep up and falling behind. In the video game universe, lag causes you to walk and react slowly compared to other players in the game - often leading to unjust deaths and other actions.

The host of a game has to process various bits of data, so the better the connection you have the better the host you will be. The further away you are from the host's location also doesn't help your cause and will increase your chances of receiving notable lag, hence why local matchmaking is pretty essential.

It is a pretty confusing and debatable topic, so we will let the following video explain it you. A YouTube user named WhaleMasher » has recorded footage in Black Ops Theater Mode and in-game to show and compare what the host and player will see.
