My FPS usually vary between 30 to 60, but sometimes drop to 20. FPS does not seem to affect my shooting much though. I find ping to be more problematic. When ping is around 30 to 40ms, I usually score 30% accuracy with my guns. When it jumps to 70 - 80ms (which happens often with bigger battles) my accuracy drops into the 5 - 10% neighborhood. If I go back and watch those replays I can always see the aiming circle where my bullets fire lags behind the actual aiming point of my aircraft's nose by a significant amount. It looks like I'm aiming dead on in game, but replay shows my bullets going where my nose was pointing 2 seconds ago.
I was wondering for months why the reticule looks steady while flying but on a replay you can actually see it moving around.
I was at 30 ping untill the one bad update awhile back(forget which one) and now I am at a constant 90 ping.I have tweaked and retweaked settings in my joystick trying to fix this to no avail and it's really evident on my ju88 where the shots have to be dead on.
I even upgraded to a higher internet speed and the ping is still high.
I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one with this problem as I was ready to reinstall the game in an attempt to fix this but it looks like it's a WG server side issue.
I play on an Asus z87-k with intel7,a 1 tb black hard drive and GEFORCE 660 so it's not like my pc is underpowered.
In the meantime I will take lostwo's suggestion to start flying with no reticule or lead indicator.
