When I play online games, like call of duty, there's always someone complaining about lag. I have a theory. Let's say you play a game and you have like 20ms constant. You also happen to have a monitor with 20ms lag. My theory is that you play without any lag, because it's equal on 2 sides.
Am I right on this or do I have 40ms lag in this instance? I'm not very good at math, but this sounded logic to me.

In my opinion, your own movement would appear to be 20ms late, but the other players would be 40ms late to your vision.
