      xbox playing up

      Hello I used to be on BT but finished my contract and now I'm with sky.
      with the release of the new call of duty game I am unable to kill anyone on multiplayer, it seems like I am 1-2sec behind everyone else.
      I'm going to be altering my mtu from the default 1500 (Xbox reports mtu as 1480) to around 1430 ish.

      Can anyone tell me is my connection is running fine or not, I posted my stats below and thanks in advance...

      Sorry there was no one around waiting to answer your question.
      Perhaps they were all busy doing other things like work etc ?
      Maybe the next 30 didn't like your attitude ?

      go on a 3g connection teathered to your phone you will kill plenty of people then
      call of duty is setup for the laggiest players
      worst connection = biggest tank in the game

      Re: xbox playing up

      the MTU is made up of the packet and header.

      Packet is typically 1472 + 28 for the header = 1500

      if your xbox says MTU is 1480 this is either 1480 + 28 = 1508 which will cause packet loss because the MTU cant be bigger than 1500.

      I would suggest trying the steps here :

      Re: xbox playing up

      Many people complaining of the same issue, some people are maxing out their connection with "downloads" before going online to try and gain advantage, due to the reason shonk mentioned, play titanfall2 instead lol less affected by the whole connection is king in cod now. Not a Sky issue, a COD issue, I'm back playing blop3 until they fix it.....still playing COD remastered though lol
      Also having an open NAT can help.
