A Brave new world "Online Gaming!" What you experienced is called "lag" look
it up in millions of sites on the internet, its an inherent feature in all
things related to the internet. It's not the fault of the game. It just
happens. Dont call your internet provider just yet because your "t1" line
isnt to blame more than likely its the connection of others. Lag like you
are describing in halo can some times be explained by cheaters exploiting
the game by using cable modems with standby buttons. This will be common
place in halo. It is no longer honorable to earn a rating. The ranks are
usually measured by how good of a cheater you are. Just wait till you get
modded thats a great new feature (only on the new maps though). Have fun
