  1. It means that my crosshair is on the guy and ill burst a few bullets into him and its doing low to little damage trust me its not aim first 2 games i get 2-3 kill death ratio then after that i can barely maintain 1 kill death ratio so i restart my modem and im getting a 2-3 kill death ratio
  2. What is your download/upload speed from ISP, will give you some much needed info, to play games online you should have minimum 3Mb connection download/1Mb upload, if anyone else in the house goes online at the same time as you and are downloading whatever, you should run about 6Mb minimum.
  3. Ok im srry i was in a hurry i also called the isp and they said i had no problem with my connection" class="img lazy">
  4. I use RR as well, in cincinnati, ohio. It almost sounds like your modem is dropping packets, I would go to a local store and ask them to swap it out... Or if you call for support in the pre-recorded message choose the option for VOIP (even if you don't have VOIP), you will bypass L1 and L2 support groups that don't know SH**. L3 are the network guru's that know what they are doing.
  5. your ping rate is a little high for it's speed, probably packet loss. Check ISP for a stability test, they may need to bring the speed down so you get stable line (no packet loss), might drop to 10Mb but should be fine for gaming after this.
