The issue for me with this game, is that a good percentage of the games I play it feels unplayable for me, the best way I can describe it, is that the game feels horribly delayed. The thing I notice the most is, that the sound often won't function correctly, I can't hear anyone coming until I am already dead from rockets, and it has a general feel of every single opponent, regardless of ability, can run rings around me before my client can even respond.
The movement feels sluggish and like I am on an ice rink, my fire rate feels incredibly slow and there is a general feel of lack of fluidity and responsiveness. The overwhelming feeling is that I am moving a lot slower and firing a lot slower then opponents, which is painfully obvious when in rocket vs rocket fights.
I really don't feel like this is my imagination, given that some games the game will perform perfectly and I can hear everyone coming from a mile off, and I switch server and everything feels horribly out of sync, the biggest giveaway for me is the sound. I understand that better players utilise the walk key, but not everyone on a FFA server is walking around soundlessly for entire games, so to me its very clear when the sound is not working as it should.
If anyone else can relate to what I am talking about would appreciate any tips you have, I would list everything that I have tried, but that would take way too long
