if you live in the middle of nowhere... like me... the best ping i ever get is around 60 but its usually like 90. if im under 100 im happy. plus i like having a high ping, it makes every1 mad when i pwn them

oh, and 40ms (60-20) doesnt really matter... you'r kind of splitting hairs at that point. if your getting pwnd, u need more practice, not a 40ms faster connection

Yeah, it sucks that you guys in Australia/New Zealand always have bad pings, it's not your guys fault.

However, you can own with that 200ish ping, I've seen it done before.

0 - 50 = excellent
50 - 100 = good
100 - 150 = tolerable
150 - 999 = unplayable

Graphics don't affect ping at all. So stop worrying about that. Find a different server, it's that simple. Find a closer server.

growing up playing CS on a 56k (200-400ping)and then going to college w/ T-1's (30-60) it was like i had god mode on... now i got a job and play on dsl (40-90)... starting w/ a huge ping def makes you a better player in teh long run
