The last time I played I was still on dial-up and my ping was something like 250ms... translation - slow as molassas!

So today, what's concidered a decent ping time?

I've had some success with my little attack and retreat macro, avoiding p-torps each time, so I presume I've got decent speed.

What's generally the range that most people connect with now, and if I recall, the thing that effects ping is just how far geographically you are from the server you're playing.

I used to have a tool that told me exactly how my connection was traveling over the web, each transfer etc. So, when I noticed a slow down, it was usually one of the servers on the network was down and I was routed through a different connection. Probably not much of an issue today, or is it?

The approximations I use:

Fast < 150
Good 150 - 180
Fair 180 - 200
Bad news > 200 and time to cby out.

A great ping though only goes so far.

That is funny , I fall into the

category with my 300 ~ 400 ping
but I find it challenging to play those in the 180~280 ping area.

Excellent! I think I was being a little generous before, 250 was a good day and 400 was - OK, I'm gonna cry now!

Needless to say, I'm a bit faster now. :wink:

I had a Ping test from http://www.whoisxy.com/ping.aspx and here are the results,
Minimum = 188ms, Maximum = 194ms, Average = 190ms
So, I am happy that i fall under FAIR category.
