I hate them ppl who kick for high ping too!!!! hahaha
With mah 56k, I often get >250 ping in the game, which is my "acceptable limit" of ping. but what annoys me most is when i have 300-400 ping and get like 5 kills in a few seconds, or even better, i get lucky during a ping spike of like 3000 and kill someone, then they all accuse me of hacking.
Bloody hell, the "low" pingers, who have ping of 100 or less than 50, lose a firefight against me, with their "skilless" ping, they piss me off... truly, i've played with that much on an honor server and that kinda ping requires NO SKILL AT ALL to win with.
HATE 'em but there ain't nothing we can do about them.
Lag is a combination of the players and the server...if youve been playing americas army for a reasonable amount of time you should know this by now... if youve got a shitty server...theres gonna be lag. if youve got a couple players with 350+ ping...theres gonna be hella lag. your best bet is to get off dial up (lol) and spend the extra money to get DSL or cable. DSL and cable work wonders when surfing the net and playing aa.
if you dont kick high pingers it ruins the game.
RUIN ? NO but its pretty UNFAIR to all other players! all have a ping around of 80-120 and ONLy 1 have 560-800 ..that what i can see all the time on my servers! All have a good ping and ONLY 1 or 2 have a really bad slow ping===>this ppl must kicked! and this is ABSOLUTLY not the server,this is a FACT! :cool: :cya:
yes which is why if you dont kick them, it ruins the game, sometimes you get stuck, and cannot even open a door or throw a grenade. AND, believe it or not, not being able to sprint, getting a grenade stuck in your hand, and being headshotted are all forms of lag. High pingers should be kicked. Most of them in the 400-600 range are either running 56k dial-up, or are running a download of some sort. Please keep in mind that if you run a download of any sort while playing Americas Army, it will raise your ping by at least 100, this can effect the whole server.
I have an ADSL connection, but the fact that I live across the Pacific means that my ping on West Coast servers is usually around 350. Frankly, the idea that high ping means you are useless to the team is beyond retarded. My high ping combined with my lousy system specs result in a horrible kill/death ratio, but I put my skills as a medic to good use and I help my team in completing objectives. High ping doesn't ruin the game, lamers (including those who think high ping causes lag for others, despite the proof being to the contary) ruin the game.
:smack: DON'T JOIN SERVERS THAT ARE FAR AWAY
If you live in the US, don't join a European server. If you live in Europe, don't join an American server. Its that bloody simple
actualy there was a report on the lag myth on aa tracker that said that its cuased by packet loss that can not be cuased by either one sorta weird but its true something like that
