anything below 400 is playable online. heck, i used to play with an 800 average (on aol, got slightly better with netzero!) now i never get above a 100 with my adsl

It also depends if you are getting packet loss. If there is packet loss than It would be rather hard to play reliably.

I really don't care what my ping is. Just as long as I don't get that stupid little red disconnect sign in UT and it is not choppy.

I can't believe that Fredi has not made my sig the sig of the week yet. :frown:

oh yea it also really depends on the game as to what your ping will be and how sensitive the netcode is to latency.

you're lucky. my ping was around 350 on my modem. i just changed appartments and got on the lan here at school (t3). i started a game of tfc and took a look at my ping....i think my neighbors below me hate me now, i was dancing around the room for so long.

At the core of every system: "I'm sorry dave, i'm afraid i can't do that."

300 is fine, although if you get into serious competitive gaming, under 100 is a must.

Because this may possibly be the oldest thread resurrection I have ever seen...ever. Funny to think the OP is now almost a decade older.
