Gears of War 3 Dedicated servers should eliminate lag! So we thought. Sadly the dedicated servers only work in ranked, with the most popular modes, Campaign, Horde and Beast, being on P2P, and the bottom line is that, whatever mode people are playing , a great many appear to be complaining of lag! Here, see for yourself.
Here’s What everyone thinks of gears of war 3 dedicated servers
(Comments from around the Gears 3 World)
Pengu :” Dedicated Servers? Sounds nice doesn’t it? But I’ve yet to actually see them work to their potential of diminishing lag in Gears of War 3. So far, almost every single match I have played has had a lag that last 2 seconds in length at any given moment throughout a match. It’s not one of those lags that you can predict and maneuver around to enhance your ability to get some kills in match. What will happen is I will be in a point where I am about to go against an opponent in a long-range or short-range battle and then I will see their character either slide out of cover randomly…”

|Playing quick team matches and horde mode, I lost connection to the host 3 times last night. I guess only ranked is on the dedicated servers huh? Kinda misleading on epics part.|
|Peer hosting is a joke…|

|Ranked gets the priority of servers, then the leftovers go to the public matches.Even without the servers, the game is still smooth as butter with almost no lag, so there’s not much to complain about. While I agree, it is an annoyance when the host quits, but thank god they added host migration.|

|So whats the point of ranked? Just to appear on that leader board? It seems dumb cause you have to find a whole new game every match.And yes even the hosted games seem smooth as butter. This has proably got to the least laggiest games I have played.|
