The comments on that video you embedded are exactly what’s wrong with that segment of the Minecraft community. Trolls are bad, don’t feed the trolls. Even if they have a lot of YouTube subs. Now those people think they can do whatever the hell they want to…. despite rules that Mojang put in place. Thanks a lot Notch… your community is screwed.
You know. Bad Company 2 had a netcode issue they never fixed. You could adjust a setting in the game that determined how much compensation the game built into your shots which was supposed to even the playing field for people with high latency connections. The problem I ran into in essence was that my connection to the server was too good so instead of shooting on target. The game compensated so my shots would happen ahead of where I intended them to go. DICE made the game for people with ~100ms latency, but my 30ms latency to the server a couple hundred miles away was too good to handle. Totally screwed up.
Xbox One beta was 5GB. PC beta was around 11GB.
Since the PC version is being distributed through Origin, you will probably be able to preload the weekend before.
