yes and at that point i am faced with two options: play to the end of an unplayable game or quit and lose my streak and take a loss. why is it such a bad thing to want to know before a game starts if i am going to have a ping of over 250 because i am in a lobby on another continent?



i am baffled by the amount of people acting indignant because i just want to know my own ping in a video game. you would think i am being offensive the way people are reacting.



why is it i can see my ping in %99.9 of online games and not this one? people in this forum are lunatics.


how are you going to know your ping before a game starts? answer your not, even if they brought back the bars you still would not. I have seen games where everyone in the lobby was at 1 bar until the countdown timer finished then everyone went to 4. You join a game and quit your going to get a loss and there was never a way to check before the start of a game.

It's not about be being a butt licker. It's about applying dirty, unlikeable facts of life to your gaming experience. Namely, that sh*t happens. The other aspect of life that sucks is that, well, I'm just not the best there is at everything there is to do. That in mind, what can I do to makes things for myself just a hair-bit better?

I can stop worrying about the sh*t I can't change and start focusing on the sh&t I do control.

is it so unreasonable to want to know your own ping in an online game?

TBH, your view of others ping doesn't matter until they sort out the lag compensator. As it stands right now, you're better off with a slower connection. I doubt they'll sort that one out though.

I know it drives me crazy, really. One of the reasons I play more squats instead of multilayer o.O'

Because of people f'ing with their connections due to leaping to wrong conclusions about the nature of Lag Compensation.

I've said it before, I'll say it again: the community (or certain parts of it *glares at youtube*) will be the downfall of this series
