    I'm sick and tired of these damn ping limits. Most are set to 400, which is roughly what I get for these European servers. Basically what thats doing is saying 'Only we can play! Mwahaha' And its giving me the ****s. Yes you do get servers in different areas, but they never last long. I've had enough of this alienation!

    Yep it’s a pain, but what can you do we live a long way from most servers on hyper so I can only suggest you stick with the ones based in OZ.

    Is the Winds of War Server (in the States) also unplayable/too far away for you?

    Yeah...i was just going to say that our ping kick isn't set that low (depending on the map we set it between 500-1000)

    US based servers are mostly OK for us Aussies, but the Euro ones that set a ping kick are mostly marginal if they allow us at all. Personally I don't understand why they set it so low, the server bandwidth and timecheck setting are far more important for good gameplay.

    Oh well, it's their loss

    Doesn't setting a lower ping keep the warpage down?

    Back in 98 I saw that if everyone on a server was also playing the same local ISP that
    the action could be near instant tight. Ping to my ISP was 10ms.
