Re: Why is there a lag in Online Madden?

You're right, Im using the wrong word, I don't know correct term for it but it can be described as a delay in response to the controller. You notice the difference when the opponent quits the game, scrolling through the plays and menus is smooth.

The issue is that online has a built in delay with every action. It is one of the worst parts of online Madden, the controller delay makes online and offline have much different timing.

That is the perfect example of the issue you brought up.

I would love to test it and see how much of a delay there truly is. I know that in games like Guitar Hero/Rock Band even 20 milliseconds can really throw you off.

And anyways, the latency of each game depends on the ping of the two players, and their respective connections.

Its simple. THe closer you live to your opponent, and the better each of your connections, the less "laggy" your game will be.
Exactly. Dedicated servers would allow for better connections, and, most importantly, when connecting to the dedicated servers, this is where EA should be doing the majority of their online advertising, much like Blizzard does with their Battle.net. EA seems to be focusing more on how to get more $$$ than how to do it right, utilizing industry best practices. I don't for a minute believe that overlay Ad that I so much dislike was an idea of the development team.

FIFA and NHL have dedicated servers. Why not madden?

The number of users on FIFA dwarfs the players on Madden. Pony up the cash boys.

Every game you play on XBL is full of lag... nothing anybody can do about it except buy the best internet possible.
