Going through some of my old Shadowplay clips and I stumbled apon this. https://gyazo.com/acdaf0a4769555ee665bf506e90c065d Watch everyone around me, then watch Garrett (#208)

Not quite sure what happened but he had no automatic prediction. And, it looked awesome. It made me question, what exactly is the point of automatic prediction? Wouldn't it just make racing worse by block passes being exaggerated with skippy lag, and just overall racing in general worse?

What are the benefits? I wasn't around when it was introduced.

Not quite sure. That just seemed like decent internet connection. The point of prediction is to smooth lag spikes and make high ping people at least race-able. No one played older game where people went over berms and came back, knocking out all toughblocks doing so?

No prediction = either people stopping or going straight as soon as a few packages is lost. Jlv correct me if I'm wrong.

Prediction puts the bikes where they actually should be. Without it everyone else would look like they were behind where they actually are. I'm pretty it was in the first version of multiplayer. The only update was to predict collision response.
