Have any of you guys noticed, you can affect chosen player performance in the arena with "user" sliders in the settings? Default is 50 and you can turn everything up or down from 0-100.
When you lower running and shooting sliders, it looks oddly familiar to what we interpret as lag in the game, running through the mud feeling, etc. It's just different feeling from usual button delay.
It's interesting that increasing shooting sliders doesn't really get you better at scoring (in fact it's the opposite), but speed sliders will be much more noticable.
I wonder, and this is just a theory, if EA actually change ingame sliders as a quick fix solution to server overload, on the assumption that lowered moving speed might get us better control over players.
