whats the reasoning behind not showing our pings?

i dont want to have to wait till i die 5 times in a row after emptying a clip into someone and doing no damage to confirm that im playing with people far, far away from me?

cant we just see our pings in the lobby? why are they hidden?

At first i thought it was a conspiracy so we didn't know how bad connections were, now I just think it's just another sign of the half-assed quality of Ghosts in general.

Battlefield has servers, I think this game has like one in NY and one in LA and that is it. While it is still important, knowing your ping in COD is more important than one that uses servers.

Because Activision doesn't want you to see that people with crappy connections still have a noticeable advantage.

if its so true why has it never been proven? there are countless videos out there claiming to show it but none of them actually do. so if its so bad as you guys claim why is it so difficult to get a picture of this bigfoot?

Are you freaking kidding me?  You've never been killed way after you went behind a corner, or had somebody kill you by shooting you where you stood 1 second ago?  Hell, in BO2 people with 3 bars had a pretty big advantage.  It's extremely obvious that people with bad connections have the advantage, this isn't new.
