QuoteAnybody else play Quakeworld back in the day and remember the scourge of the LPB (Low Ping Bastard)?  Hah, those of us with 56ks or whatever got demolished by the kiddies at college with the T1s etc.  Luckily, I only had to suffer through it for about six months as we had broadband cable in my area as far back as 1997 (among the first in the state to have it), so I became a LPB as well.  I became what I despised!!

...

i went from 28.8/33.6/56/isdn!
i also blame quake..

What I don't understand is this. If someone believes that high pingers have an advantage, why aren't they playing on servers where THEY are the high pinger? Or as someone suggested using a VPN or proxy server that routes through Europe?

I have played on British, German, and Japanese servers. I assure you, I still suck.

Because most European/Asian servers will kick you if your ping is above 100. They happen to not have the shittiest ISPs

I know I'm dredging into waters of old, but obeytheboss is not a scrub player complaining about people shooting him. Alot of the elite players like erazoredge, myself, obey, and others have felt this problem. It is MUCH worse in bf4 (which is why I uninstalled that POS) and it's made more prevalent on close quarters servers like cq domination. There is absolutely NO way that a person with a 250 ping should EVER get the jump on someone camping a door that has a 15 ping. I ran into this with multiple people where they would jump (space bar) around a corner and I would be dead before they hit the ground on my screen (keep in mind that you cant shoot while in the air). It also in inconceivable that in a server with 40 players that there are only 2-4 that are low ping in the top 20 players every single match.

As for being picky over milliseconds...yes this is, but that time is what makes the difference between you being dead or not.

BF1/BFH have jumped leaps and bounds ahead of BF4 in both hit detection and ping variance issues FYI.

On a side note: How do you explain the fact that the players who generally complain about this are 100x better at other shooters who dont have these problems?

i'm not exactly sure what you mean but we all have those same/problems.
everybody harps on about pings but what is more important is the quality of the connection, packet loss, routing, and stability in general. for example, today there's some ddos wars going on the internet and most of us were getting more than usual packet loss.
