Strange maximum ping values

Postby CC » 13 Feb 2009, 04:44

I've been curious of this for some time. Sometimes there are hosted games with strange maximum ping values, like 33. Why would anyone use that? Do they really expect someone to be able to connect with a ping that low? I also see games hosted with maximum pings of 100, which is just ridiculous, I think. Why would someone do that? Is there some bug in the game that is allowing the 33 ms maximum ping value? :?

so :
- u can set the maxping in the .ini to whatever value u want, it's not a bug ;)
- between 2 people geographically close & with good connections, 20ms of ping is quite possible ; with fiber, it can likely go down to 5ms
- 100ms is quite usual, and for me, it's the maximum ping to have lag-free game experience

it is strange cuz he will be allowed to play only with really near people, he's limiting himself to play with just a few people, but it's like manutoo said, maxping under network at the .ini to change your max ping allowed to any value

Tour issues by PM or Skype.
If you don't add me nor send me a PM, you might see your chances reduced. Inform me about anything that might have went on with your matches BEFORE deadlines, otherwise, decisions won't be changed.

OK. So whoever is doing that knows what they are doing I guess. I just couldn't figure out how they could expect to play with anyone. Lucky guys to have such a great connection :o :) :!:

It's not a bug, but it bugs me, because I can't connect :wink: :mrgreen: .
