The "Ping" it the time it takes for a packet of data to go from your PC to the server and come back. It is measured in milliseconds.

So a ping of 200 means that there is a 200 millisecond delay from the time you press your mouse button and actually shoot someone. A ping of 80 you hardly notice.

If you do play with 200+ ping (dial-up) you have to aim about 1 centimeter ahead of the player to shoot him. You have to predict where he is going.

Why the hell you back on Dial Up?

There are many different factors that have an impact on your ping - Such as the service provider, and current hardware configuration.
