Hello, I have a ping of 40 to 50 on a dsl connection and another regular on the server has a ping of 300 to 500. When there are alot of players I normally always beat him ,but today we played 1 on 1 and he beat me 28 to 23. From what I have read about pings, this guy should hardley be able to move much less be one of the top players. I not accusing him of cheating, I just want to know if the difference in ping may give him some sort of advantage. If anyone knows, please respond. Thanks

usually for me them having low ping gives them a little of an advantage because your shooting at a still image when he is really moving... but when I lag I usually freeze too... so I would say it kind of evens out.. but also sometimes the lag goes in his favor.. and its all part of playin online I say

High ping has no advantage. You should be able to own a high pinger unless their connection is jacked or if they are using timenudge. Is timenudge a valid command in SOF2w like Q3? if so, he might have had it jacked up so you couldn't hit him (lame)

This is why I don't play laggers 1v1, just not worth it. There are too many low pingers to play out there.

I've played people with pings of 20 - 30 and they warped all over the place... that could have been timnudge, because I doubt it was computer lag.... roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif

lol sometimes when a person lag, they are really good, because if a person who doesnt lag is trying to kill another person who lag, the lagger wins. hehe i ono thats my theory. :p

I suppose when you are shooting at a person who is lagging, you are shooting at the person while they lag so they are stationary... but after they lag they warp 20 metres in a random direction, so you'd be shooting at something that isn't actually there... :uhoh:
