At least we've figured out that its your connection and not you. I remember playing BF3 with you and you weren't too bad. Honestly if you have a hotspot option on your phone it may get a better connection

1)wired vs wireless connection 2)what tv are you playing on? If you are playing on a flat screen with a bad refresh rate it's almost impossible to be successful. It's really night and day when you compare a TV that is made for gaming and one that isn't. I have had friends genuinely not know that they were playing on a tv that isn't right for gaming and be blown away when they play on a good one. 3)Much easier to get a better k/d ratio in TDM versus domi. 4)Camp areas of the map. I'm not saying sit in a room like a little dingdong and hardscope the door but holding down a certain area with a lot of foot traffic is key. Once you become really familiar with a certain area and understand where all the entry points are, that is when you can do some damage. You have to be able to understand where you are located on the map and where the enemy can attack you from. Once you kill someone, 9 out of 10 times they will come back for you so you just have to realize where they will be coming from. It really all comes down to being familiar with the map. If you just run around out in the open like an idiot over and over your k/d is going to suck.

You've basically got to be obsessive to have a positive kd ratio. R remember my first time playing halo w my friends online, I sucked I played a couple marathons and were better than them (aside from tigerdik, me and him owned shite @ an equal level).
Point is, nobody just walks in owning. Learn the maps. Learn the weapons. Practice. You might be a good gamer but there's a huge advantage of knowing maps and what works in different games.
Era: then the switch from halo to cod it sucks going from boss status to noob but same concept. You eventually figure out what works. You have to find the difference between mastering something until it works (or doesn't) and moving onto something else that works.
