i think it lags because every player is in a single room, so even thought u host for 4 players the data is being sent to everyone in the room which can be a lot. other wise the people in the room wouldnt see it in the list. U could maybe make it so ppl could a smaller room for a max of 4 people in the halo pal or ntsc sections.
well thats what i think Rolling Eyes

Check the main page for the news - they say they've isolated the issue and the fix is nearly ready. Remember, version 6 RC2 didn't suffer from this, so I doubt it is a huge issue for them to fix.

I guess you were talking about Halo, since you were saying this in the Halo PAL room earlier... It lags because Halo wasn't made for online play, and it's netcode it pre-XBL, so it's built purely for LAN. It needs 128upload per xbox joining and an extra 30 per player on each joining XBox just to run smoothly.

I don't think the amount of people in the arena makes that much difference, when you were in the Halo PAL arena earlier there was about 20 other people at the most. But when I played NTSC this morning there was about 200+ people in the NTSC arena, and I got a smooth game wirh 144 ping...

No online game will ever be LAG free, untill we all have LAN speed internet connections - even then it wont be perfect since Halo lags in LAN if you got enough people and enough corpses lying around. Halo is worse than most, due to it's network code. You hav to live with it, and learn to lead your shots, play more defensively - 80% strategy, 20% accuracy.

EDIT: Like the post before me said, there's a big which will be fixed, but I've heard a lot of pople in both PAL and NTSC arenas saying this will make Halo lag free - it can't... That's the unfortunate truth Sad

I've played halo, without lag.. on the internet, there is lag that jumps in, but i get shots fine most times, just depends on where the person is
