I originally posted this thread in the "problems, errors, help and others" section of the forum, but i later figured out that i should have posted it here instad.:naughty: Ok heres the deal! I'm getting so tired of ppl votekicking other ppl with high ping, because the high pingers supposedly cause the other players to lag! This is a myth!!! High pingers don't cause server lag! I know its hard to believe, but its true. Search the internet or somethong to find out the technical stuff regarding this issue. Plz read quote of the Dev Teams statement on the issue (if u don't believe me!)

[color=cyan] I want to set the record straight about players with high pings causing lag - this is a MYTH. It is impossible for a player regardless of how high their ping is to cause server lag for everyone else. I will spare you the technical details, but it has to do with the UDP protocol used for network transmissions in the game, and the Unreal Engine netcode specifications. Please do not votekick anyone with a high ping off a server because someone thinks he/she is the cause of the server lagging. [/color]

Now this should be enough info to make ppl change their mind about votekicking high pingers (i hope):D

I agree, unless the computer has a maximum ping option enabled, you really have no right to kick them unless they are actually doing something that warrants a kick.

Yeah,if I'm high-pingin then I leave,but if they're high-pingin' and I'm getting lag,then I don't know whether it's the server causing them to high ping or if it's just that the server is slow.Of course,it doesn't really matter to me,because stupid PB keeps kicking me;and don't tell me to update PB,I d/l'ed the update and it still didn't work.

I have to admit, this one annoys me too.. anyone who says that people with High ping are causing lag for others is a moron who should shut up and learn something about networking before they waste everyones time with their crap. However, in the same group as this You'll find those who boot Snipers for using or assault guys who are injured/Behind Enemy Lines... Really, if you wanna play CS, play CS, if you wanna play a more sim based game, thats what this is for. Another thing that truely annoys me is people who cannot select the Sniper Rifle because they can't pass training, but they follow you around bugging you or making sure you are a visible target, or even flashbanging you so you have to stand about and wait then setting off a votekick because you're blind and can't move safely.. (I've had it happen, don't tell me it doesn't) .. Those are the sort of people you really want to leave with CS, They aren't the people you want playing with you. Ok.. Thats my rant over :p

really I hate when peeps say that high pingers are lagging..its only due to server...I thing pb must do one thing when somebody type ping or lag then he must be automatically kicked...they kick for reason idle...c'mon man even pb has not specified any votekick option for high pingers...this game is for all the peoples...around the world...not for dsl,cable,t1 etc user...its for modem user also..very bad.... GUYS IF U dont mind then we all high pingers should join a server in gang so that nobody can harass us...hope u will listen

Ping isn't a bad thing necessarily....On my clan server, a buddy in my clan usually has about 400 on a moderate day and 300 on a good day and over 1200 on a bad day...he's dial up in Canada and I'm cable in FL....He kicks my ass quite often cuz he is a good player...when he gets his 200 pings, he will clean up the server....this guys is deadly even with the ping being high...

A high ping only means that he can't see stuff in real time....its already happened that many milliseconds ago....he then has to react faster than most to something that happens or he's dead....If you learn from your environment, when it changes, you'll be that much better.....

Point is, Don't kick high pingers....either they suck and they'll die enough that they'll get tired and leave or they'll be decent enough players and help your team out what little they can....or they may be that rare gem and clean the server and school you at the same time....

Ya, this is the deal with me to, I have about a 400 ping on a normal day, a little lower on good days, and a lot higher on bad days. BUT, on a good day I can usually own unless of course i have a crappy gun or what not. KICKING HIGH PINGERS IS RIDICOULOUS, I think some people kick them only because they get :0wned: by the high pingers. LOL, then they say that oh he has a high ping, cant have him in here. But yes, i agree it is the servers fault for the high ping. Thats why you see many people with high pings on some servers because the servers SUCK. So my last thought is dont kick the high pingers.

To all those who think high pingers should be kicked, I have 1 thing to tell you. Broadband is NOT available EVERYWHERE. Be happy that you actually can get cable in your area because some unlucky person living away from the city most likely can't.
