I'm doing a geographical analysis.
If you bring up the 'recently met' menu on PC or Xbox when you invade, you'll notice that most of the hornet BSing community seemed to be made up of Spanish/German/Russian/Korean players. (especially true in the forest) I always wondered why this was so.
All along I thought that it was because they had the largest general latency gap with everyone else (on my screen, players from these countries lagstab from much further than players listed under other nations, barring a few exceptions), and were simply taking advantage of it.
It took this video to make me realize another possible reason:
Now, we've all known for a while now that lag is mutual, but I was slow enough that I didn't realize up till now that they, too, get lagstabbed on a frequent basis (possibly more frequently than everyone else). So the video got me thinking, 'maybe they're just fighting fire with fire, and simply hitting back harder than everyone else!' Possibly they started out retaliating against this frustrating issue, and later discovered they were winning frequently with it, and so continued doing so. Upon doing this, they would naturally also build their playstyle and characters around it.
It seems logical enough to explain for the impartial geographical skew of lagstabbers. Any thoughts?
