Some players (e.g. Oskar) still don't get it:

Ping (latency) is dependant on the distance between you are the server you are connecting and the routing your ISP does. You can have a gigabit connection but you will still get high ping if you are connecting from USA to some asian server (that's why you should always play multiplayer games in your region).

Location: What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.
As I've stated before: Jitter is a much bigger problem than ping times.

"What is jitter?
Jitter is the rate at which ping changes over a period of time (otherwise known as ‘ping spikes’ or ‘stuttering’). ‘Jittering’ is essentially the fluctuation or variation of latency over time. Simply put, if every information packet takes the same amount of time to travel from point A to point B, then there is no jitter. However, if the packet delivery times are inconsistent, then there is ‘jitter’.

In the same way as ping rates, the lower the jitter value for the connection, the better. However, consistency is the most important thing. You can adjust your gameplay to allow for lag and make timely, accurate shots. However, jitter makes for extremely unpredictable game play that throws off your timing making it hard to play successfully."

Yeah, latency is a curse. All of us players 'downunder' are already a day ahead of you guys, latency is the only reason we can't kill you before you even get out of bed! :roll: :lol:
