this game is awsome!!! i love it but the problem is that i have bad ping when i play it :( i have a Pentium 4 1700Mhz 256 DDRAM GeForce 4 Ti4200 and i get around 150 to 200 ping. sometimes its 90 but really rear. I have Win XP professional and yes i deactivated the 20% bandwith which it keeps for other reasons. Other games like CS and SOF2 online go at 60 - 90 ping! Can anyone help please??? Im going to have a clan match soon so i need to make sure a get a good ping! thanks in advance....

do not worry about it for now. The server code for this game is still not bugged out. Over time the ping will go down.

You can try this dslreports/tools - they have tools to improve ping and connections.

A ping of 90??? That's incredibly good, even for high speed internet. It all relates to your location to the server, I get anywhere between 40 and 200 depending on whether the server is on the East Coast, West Coast, or Europe..... and that's with DSL...... anything unde 100 is great with any game, try playing with a 33.6 modem as I did for a year .....ping averaged 350-400! Games like Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament deliver the same range as AA right now, there is nothing wrong with a 100 ping!!!!

That will not work that well try puting it on High Priority or try With low priority my ping is high and when I put it on High Priority my ping is 40 to 80 no more than 130 on a bad server.

to get the option "Run Hight priority" try Xteq X-Setup - A free registry editing tool, It is a safe tool.

kpunk is right. The engine is good at miniplating the ping. So ping will not be a problem if you have 200 ping. But if you have a problem with high ping, some ajustment will be made to your side. Like disabling your firewall, changing some tcp seting, etc. once again 200 ping is normal for now, it may go down over time.
