I live in Cali but any time I try to play on LAX nothing registers with 22ish ping. The registration on Texas or Chicago servers is better with 50-70 ping. I'm not a noob, it's not in my head, and it's not a matter of adjusting to it. Something is technically wrong. I have tried a few different player configs and played around with all these settings but cannot solve it:
cl_packetdup 0 and 1
rate 16000 and 25000
cl_maxpackets 63 and 125
cl_timenudge 0, -10, -20
cl_autotimenudge 0 and 1 (1 is completely broken btw)
There are no lag spikes. Just nothing registers. My LG alone drops 10% whenever I play LAX.
