I’m not sure how many others have this issue but there is a major issue regarding low ping. It happens nightly to me and is something that I’ve taken notice to quite often. If I happen to have a ping below 30ms and a player, whether teammate or enemy, is above 80ms (stable or fluctuating), the game plays very poorly. It actually feels like I am on a 250ms connection because I have many delays, shots not firing, rubber banding, sponging and a whole list of things. Enemies will just abuse me like I am playing with no thumbs.
The very next match I’ll have a ping around 40-50ms which is the sweet spot for having the best connection when someone is above 80ms. I have played the same team back to back before along with new teams and the one constant is when the server changes and I get a 40ms ping the enemies go from being sponges to taking damage and I no longer teleport.
Now, if everyone is below a certain ping the low ping would be fantastic and much appreciated. However, I have yet to get a low ping more than a couple of times where everyone is below 80ms which in turn creates a very frustrating experience. In the end, all I am asking for is you to right a wrong here and stop adding a major handicap onto me that is impossible to overcome because the game is so out of sync. A low ping with a Gigabit worth of bandwidth to go around hard wired into my PC should not net me a poor experience. Lag Compensation is necessary but it shouldn’t cripple me.
So please, end the madness. Either fix it or some how stop giving me a ping below 40ms or at least near that number. It’s ridiculous at this point because all of my friends know it’s an issue when they see me with such a low ping.
