OK.  I'm going to add this as a post because I could not find anything in the various hate filled posts about soccer including obvious garage adverts etc.     I'm not exactly liking it much (had a shot as a goalie create a self-goal because the ball instead of being pushed away came AT me and over my tank-*backwards* physics much?), but whatever I have a few friends who like to play it

to make credits.

 

Playing in soccer mode for me though is bad because of two things: noticeable delay in the server reticle while turning my turret

and shot delay.     I do not have either of these issues while in normal matches in the noticeable sense.   

It's kinda hard to describe but firing in soccer mode is "off".    I'm on a Comcast 50MBit connection w/a wired Gigabit

connection to my computer and 40-50 ping.   So it's not an obvious internet issue.

 

When I press fire in a normal game it fires following my click.  In soccer mode I press fire and there is maybe a 1/2 second delay.

The server reticle sync is pretty good in normal games.  The server reticle lags about 1/4 second behind the aim dot.

 

It's odd there is no other symptom of this issue except when I take a shot.   No other lag or delay is present.

 

Does anyone else have any problems like this?

 

My only way to avoid the issue is avoid soccer mode altogether.

i had the same problem, disabled server reticule, problem solved. Football mode could improve, random bounces and missed shot can get me mad sometimes, but i liked it too.

It's horrible.  Turning off server reticle doesn't really help at all.

It just removes the referrence "server reticle" which shows where the server *thinks* my shot will go vs where I'm aimed at.  The two are supposed to be equal before you fire in a normal battle and if out of sync you may not fire on target.  That is what is happening to me here because the delay is so long on a moving target.  I'm trying to lead my shots between the shot delay and laggy reticle I have a 0 for 90 miss streak! :(

 

Plus there is still this horrible shot delay.  It's made me miss 3 goals where the ball was IN the enemy goal and I fired but the delay made it possible

for the soccer ball to be pushed out of the goal in the time of the delay.
