How much ping time is too much? - Page 3

post #21 of 33
My wireless router is set up pretty much in the worst way possible so I have to live with 130-180 most of the time in BC2. I must have gotten used to compensating because I still can play well.

Depends strongly on the game. I know shooters like CS:S pretty much require a constant below 100-150, or something like that, but TF2... I'd say it's playable enough on 200, but don't try playing sniper or something, because in that case you'd probably miss everything. But a game such as WoW or whatnot you can play with 500, if you want, it doesn't really matter. I'd say 500 is the highest playable, and that's pushing it.

150ms or less for me

150 or less for me as well. Preferably lower but in some games that's all I can hope for.

I agree with Necro. I hate playing on anything above 50. Anything above 100 and I leave.
*Side note* When I was living in Riverside CA playing BF 2142 I was right down the street from the game server. Had 9 ping.

maybe netcode can handle more ping these days, but back when I used to play CS 1.6 like it was my life, i would look for under 50ms for any FPS game. On mmo's you can get away with a bit more like <100... but after that PVP becomes sort of who has the better connection in terms of casting time and actions.

Any NYC counter strike servers I play on I mainly ping between 5ms-20ms.

My Internet was down at home today so I tethered my phone. Anything over 100 for FPS is unbearable in TF2. I didn't get a chance to try HoN or SCII. Web browsing I noticed probably .5 second increase (using Chrome). Watching a YouTube video was bad. I'd recommend loading the page and go make a sandwich and clean some dishes haha and should be good to play for a 15minute video at 480.

Anything over 50, really. I play a lot of L4D2 with the people on OCN and the BOC, so much so that we have our own server, which I get 22 - 30 ping to, so I'm happy with that.

I'm out approaching 100. I get ~30 on Dallas servers and there's a ton of them for any game.
