a week ago, 22 april, me and the bois™ were playing COD WZ like usual. killing dudes and talking some shit. learning the ropes and lazer beaming nerds. this game is different, however. we can chat with the match! this has never happened before.
russian and chinese text characters spamming chat. this is a bad sign.
the game starts and immediately i'm killed before i have a chance to open my chute. killcam shows a the guy who killed me instantly headshotting a dude then snapping to me waaaay up in the air. headshot. we run into a bunch of cheaters throughout a bunch of games. it's just a part of the experience at the moment, so we deal with it.
time comes for them to leave, so we log out.
the next day, I log in and search for a match. fill the squad. why not.
"searching for match <52ms ....... <75ms ....... 100ms ...... 150ms ....... 200ms"
i got frustrated and quit
the bois and i want to play on friday. same thing happens. they can connect with each other and solo, but i drag everyone down.
"maybe you should contact support"
yeah. i haven't done anything wrong. court can connect and play fine on her computer. ima contact support.
i should have just fucking chalked it up to a 20$ loss.
this was my exchange with the rep today:
