I don't play it anymore, get severe rubberbanding on the PS3 version.

Yes. This should be in the 1943 forum though.

Basically lag spikes, where you think you have moved but then get warped back a few steps.

I typically consider rubberbanding to be "when someone has the lead by a ton, and the game offers assists in order for you to catch back up easily"... 
 
...like Blur does... 
 
...and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.  There's actually an option in the options menu of S&S that saying "Rubberbanding" and you can turn it on and off.

This.
 
I don't play 1943 any more, mainly because I own BC2. I really don't know why they're still working on it for PC (I think?). They should just import the maps into BC2, imo.

Weird. I haven't had any lag issues and I've been playing it a ton the last few days.

A ton of people still play this, I wish I could play more, but I gave up after getting lots of previously mentioned rubber bands.

This game is class, for the price it's better than some full priced games

I wish they would add the 1943 maps to BC2. :/
