    What is "Ping"

    Daft question i know....but what should you look for a high ping or low??
    Which is better for game play, and does it depend on what your computer spec is?

    Ping is how long it takes for a network packet to leave your computer, get to the server computer, and then get back to you. so you would want a really low ping. A high ping results in lag, which makes the gameplay really choppy. Ping has to do with your internet connection and how clear the connection between you and the server is.

      THKS,,,
      was worried that a high ping was better...my PC custom built by me was getting a ping of around 20 on the 137 ping servers..

      from now on ill keep to the lowest ping servers..
      thks again

        wow, 20 sounds good, anything under 60 is great, but the game is playable up to 120 and some will argue even higher - but IMO it starts to get a little tricky. Make sure your packet loss is zero too as this can cuase you to jump around even with low ping.

            packet loss is what happens when data is "dropped" between point A and point B.

            If you're seeing packetloss, my first question would be: are you running wireless LAN at home?

            If you know your default gateway run a persistant ping to it by typing:
            Code:
            ping <ip address>
            If you're seeing dropped packets to your default gateway, contact your ISP.
