Quick question about game servers (BF3 mainly)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, is it best if the ping on the server is low or high? I assume low but i dont get as much lag if the ping is high...like 70 or even 100?

On BF3 beta, sometimes i join the server and here sound but main screen with the deploy button doesnt appear. The mouse pointer does aswell as the sound. Anyone else had this?

the lower the better

I've had the same thing happen as you with the screen and sound. Sometimes if I wait 20 seconds or so it comes on. If it's longer then that, I find a different server.

Yes ive had that happen. But only on the Caspian Border servers (which all suck) Its just the connection timing out. After a while it will close the game automatically.

I've been lucky and got in a few caspian servers that were lag free. Maybe10% of them or so.

I thought it would be the server. Yeah, i cant be bothered to wait 20+ secs n i know it will be hard lag so i just ctrl, alt + del, task manager and then close the window. I guess that is the right way to do it?
