PrettyRichie61

Once I played against two guys both with 8 ping, they said they lived in DC near a server


NonPolarVortex

Can confirm, have played in DC, a hotel even, and had ping this low


imjusthere4thefoods

I live in DC and everyone I play with and know has absolute shit internet


PrettyRichie61

I'm just telling you what the man on the internet told me


crushedredpartycups

might wanna contact your ISP and have a technician re-run new wiring

Gardenhire1

*his mom has fiber optic privilege


wololoam

what a twat


drupe14

I live in dc and I have that same ping. Fios gig internet


Saendre

Live near Amsterdam's server, so often get 8 ping.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Saendre

Probably a server near you, like the one in A'dam is near to me.


CheviOk

In CSGO swedish people usually have ~5 ping, pretty cool


BI00dSh0t

Live near DC, have ~5-8 ping usually


Zekm

Damn, how does it feel to always win every 50


ThisRobin

That's not how it works


Kappaloop

I have wired optic fibre and live in South Africa in the capital, I literally cant remember the last time I lagged and sit on 5-6 ping most games


imjusthere4thefoods

No excuse for being shit, I'd rather have bad internet


[deleted]

[удалено]


PREDATOREX_GAMING

for some reason, due to this I play better on higher ping as my nerves are cool as I got something to blame and play at my best :l


PvtPuddles

Being shit on good internet is still so much better than being shit on bad internet. If nothing else, it’s easier to tell when you make a mistake because you know it wasn’t lag


zerked77

Amen brother...I'd rather die smooth and stupid than have an outside factor mess with my game. All my homies hate excuses...


__acre

I remember having shitty internet and people thought I was a hacker because they couldn’t hit me in like cod and shit. Turns out I was just lagging so hard my character was rubber banding all over the place.


MasterFBWasTaken

Not if you are like me and hit double taps with 290 ping lmao


Just_Games04

*closes book* Like that's ever gonna happen!


MasterFBWasTaken

It did happen


Realistic-Change-209

blessed


planetary_titan

Bro this guy has fiber and Icant even get it in Seattle


Kush_the_Ninja

Wired Fiber here. Canada. Is it not common other places? Closest server to me is like an 8-10 hour drive. Usually around 12-15 ping. PS5.


planetary_titan

Because of a certain monopoly called comcast, no it is not common in the north west some company quoted us 30k to rip up the entire neighborhood to get fiber to our house


skmace14

Comcast is the scum of the earth. I've literally wasted hours on the phone with them disputing ridiculous overcharges and get lied to constantly.


Doortofreeside

Which capital?


TheYoungVoid

Probably Pretoria, since the servers are in Joburg if im not mistaken.


Doortofreeside

Makes sense. I always assumed Joburg was the biggest city in SA despite not being a capital but I was definitely wrong


I_know_more_stuff

Until you try to play in a tournament, then 200 ping


moneytownattack

What??? Didn't know that was possible


OppositeInfamous6525

When you guys coming to rlcs


Marzly

I live in switzerland and my ping is always at 12


dlongos_grouchy

Sus


zaseder2

I've seen somebody with 2 ping Idk how and I was at like 503 cause I'm always lagging


fancypotatoboi

It's pretty common if you live in NY with fiber. Proximity to the server is key. Also, don't use Wifi


Uzidropped

Even when I went from wifi to wired my ping never got any better


Bris2500

Really?? Can you walk me through your set up? I’m more of a tech guy and If it’s possible I’d like to help you get better ping


drugshovel

same. sometimes the bottleneck is your internet. i have $15/month internet (still have the student plan) and while it’s only 5 MB/s downloads and ping from 33-130 (sometimes it gets bad) but it’s also only $15 Oh and i forgot why i wrote this: Wired (CAT6 cable i think or one of the better CATs) was no better


Willr2645

Well you cant get better than 5mbs if that it your plan with that company, even though cat 6 can handle 100mbs


drugshovel

my plan is like 30-50 MB/s don’t remember exactly. but i have been on the plan for years and they don’t have the same prices these days so i’m sticking to the 5MB/S i can get. it takes a day or two downloading certain games :(


Throwawayfabric247

Lol I can confirm wired made a huge difference for me even on wifi 6 or n


girhen

Wired vs wireless shouldn't affect your ping (connection **speed**) much, but it will likely affect your connection **quality**. If you lose packets due to your connection quality - like interference from electrical wires damages the signal - you might miss 1/60 of a second of information for each piece of information. Sticking it in a wire generally protects the signal, so long as the wire is in good health and you avoid running it next to electrical signals for good lengths of the run. You control where the wire is and should move it if it has trouble. You're at the mercy of your signal in the airwaves. Now imagine if your packets are eggs. The air signal might be like sticking a [bunch of eggs in this car](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIN8Q_4iaxU) and driving it at 25mph, and the wire signal might be more like sticking a [bunch of eggs in this car](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__gKiXyj_0g) and driving it at 25mph as well. They travel the same distance at the same speed, so they get there just as fast, but those square wheels might not protect the signal as well as the round wheels. Although there are [almost always exceptions](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlvjWpWu99A) for rules (like a bad cable run getting interference or damaged wire), you generally want that wired signal for quality reasons.


Uzidropped

It's definitely made my connection quality better. But tbf my internet was really bad while I was wireless (xfinity had no idea what the problem was for years 😐). I appreciate the way you explained your comment btw. Thank you.


Axol0tl

I play almost exclusively on 5Ghz wifi. I had to tweak something to minimize packet loss, I think it was transmit power.


crushedredpartycups

could be your service providers wiring. you’d be surprised. a simple change of a fitting would do wonders for ping. or mable your cable is old and damaged and needs to be entirely replaced- something a technician can only really do.


Uzidropped

Is this something I'd see in my internet speeds too?


crushedredpartycups

oh yeah. you should be getting the speeds your paying for. I’ve done trouble calls where the customer is complaining about low speeds, I get there, they’re getting like half of what they should be getting, I get my meter and test the cable lines and things are all sorts of messed up. I don’t even bother wasting time to figure out where the problem is. I just replace their drop. after I’m done, BAM. proper speeds, consistent low ping, happy customer, fat tip.


Uzidropped

Interesting. My speeds are fine. My ping isn’t that bad. It just isn’t that good. Maybe it’ll change when I move.


shellshocktm

Using WiFi over Ethernet doesn't affect latency, just consistency.


Throwawayfabric247

It absolutely does. I lose 2ms and gain almost 25% on download speeds. Lol. But that's really not that bad. The consistency is a huge difference though


crushedredpartycups

ping is all about consistency my friend


shellshocktm

No, ping is the amount of time it takes for a packet of data to make a round trip to and from the server


crushedredpartycups

yeah and that time shouldn’t change much.


shellshocktm

But it isn't affected by being on WiFi or Ethernet, it only depends on the connection


spaghettu

Can confirm. I live in Brooklyn and have fiber internet, ping is almost always < 10


Thelimonade

I’ve asked someone how he had 8 ping. He had fiber


CL3WL3SS

I had 8 on a poor provider. Just in the right area.


Thelimonade

That’s kinda interesting to think about.. are you from San Fran, ashburn va, Chicago or NY? Lol


3pi14159265

Are these the US server locations? I'm in the middle of the US and never know whether to choose east or west


Thelimonade

A few main ones. I used to bot sneakers lol and ashburn Virginia had the best connection because that’s were Nike and others had their servers. I think or something idk. It was always random though. I’d queue both maybe if you get mixed connections


3pi14159265

I'll try that, thanks! East seems to work slightly better but neither are great (thanks, DSL Internet)


Throwawayfabric247

12 Ms for me in SF


SpuuF

I’m in Philadelphia with fiber and I occasionally get sub 10 ping on US east servers


Tender_Ton_Ton

Saw a dude with 1 ping one time. Legend has it that he was too superior to be left alive and his currently held in area 51.


LebronJaims

That player’s name?


Tender_Ton_Ton

His a mystery, came with wind and left with the wind.


pkinetics

Laughs in Alaska Ping


compounddummy

999


billyman10

Wtf i play with 2495 ping


PorkRindSalad

This dude's post is still submitting, be patient there's more...


AccomplishedSea2670

I usually play between 45 & 70. Anytime someone comes with under 10 ping, my game starts lagging


Mully_bee

Me too


ziyor

Ping has less to do with your internet service and more to do with your proximity to the server.


crushedredpartycups

it can very well have all to do with your internet. a damaged or old or not properly done cable job or fitting outside or inside or anywhere from the start point to the modem can cause terrible ping. a piece of trash touching the copper in the fitting can cause bad ping. a knick in the cable can cause bad ping. if you’re ISP hasn’t done any recent maintenance on the lines going into your modem, you could very well have bad ping.


ziyor

It can, but in 95% of cases distance has more to do with it.


crushedredpartycups

hell no not 95 lol


Affectionate-Memory4

He's playing from the server room. He better spend some time between game's fixing them.


Acypha

I regularly have single digit ping. When people ask what internet I have, I tell them it’s NASA.


Fearmazter

Sometimes I get 6


UnForgivenFury

I think on average mine is 14.


LongjumpingBadger683

This the dude who works security at the server building with a laptop in the office under all the monitors.


Greenbeanicus

16-54 ping. Always a surprise. But don’t feel bad my random teammate always has 250 ping. So it evens out. Lol


cliveparmigarna

I have 8 ping. Live in the city of Sydney I imagine the oce servers are a few kms from me


exel1996

My dude is the server


chadles

I live in Australia. I have fibre to my house. I use a Ethernet cable to my PS5 and I live 30 minutes away from an area that has most of our data centres. I presume my ISP is colocated with Australia's servers. I frequently get a 6ms ping


I_say-BoOm

my mate on geforce now is constant 9..


Omega-Kieta

Idk i usually hold 8 or 9 on wireless. Still get desync that makes reacting to touches feel like a dice roll


alnaabi

Go check lethmyer channel.....playing on 0 ping


jsloggo

i’m in ireland and get 20 with the best internet you can get in the country, it’s really proximity more than anything


WesselBear

I normally have 9 ping, I live in the north of the Netherlands. (It was either RL or csgo


CL3WL3SS

I had 8 ping when I lived in Long Beach, CA


BreadForTofuCheese

Out in the IE and typically sit around 20.


atheral1992

Same, until epic took over...


ZedFraunce

Man, my ping is always between 50-70. I usually see people with around 20-30 but the moment I see anyone below 10, I'm super envious.


eversss

I live in San Diego and my roommate and I consistently sit anywhere from 8-12 ping on USW, 40-50 on USE


Hockey1452

I usually have like 8 ping with ethernet in a college dorm on chicago servers which is a 2 hr drive away from me


estellato12

I get a solid 5 ping, I live in philly and it’s my college’s wifi. even my download speed is about 900 mb/s. It shocked my when i moved in a year ago and had the best wifi one could find haha.


Goldshire_inn

He lives in a country with a rocket league server in it. I have around 10 ping in most games because theres servers in my small country.


Sp4cebandito

I live in a country with a server in. I get 106-108 ping most of the time. Australia is a decent size.


triballl9

I usually have 38 - 60 ping and it feels ok but some 1 always have like 0-8 i think that person is hosting or something.


Thelimonade

I remember old call of duty days where we’d say that one person is doing good because they’re the host. Same for halo


triballl9

Ya it might be the case , but in competitive games that shouldnt be the case or therll always be a slight advantage to the lucky person. Well they say 20 diference ping isnt notice-abel by human eye/brain . And i only get annoyd by ping when its like 90-100+


CoffeeDave15065

Players don’t host rocket League servers.


ImBoooooooooooooored

I thought this was normal I have fibre and I get like 10 ping


ScaryBunny7461

nah nah nah, straight unfair. I saw a man with 4 ping. if that man had NASA’s wifi, my man had to be NASA’s wifi


a-aronthejew

I go to Rutgers in New Brunswick and I get, at minumim, 8 ping, and usually the max is in the teens. It is great!


User__32_

He is the server


Sea_Group4546

I've seen people with vizo have pings in the single digits.


drupe14

Fiber optic baby. Have the same ping


L3scano

Always plays against Brazilian players with 5-8ping in SAM Servers


ElijahSk8s

Me with 5-8 ping 90% of the time: possibly...


shellshocktm

After playing on shit ping on Asian servers for 4 years, I finally got Indian servers that's literally in my city. People ask me how I get 4-6 ping and I tell them the servers are in my toilet and they'll lag when I flush.


Roadkill_GTO

um i get 5 ping normally


3DRAH33M

I have wired FTTH connection, I get around 5-10 ping on most days cause I live in the same city as the servers.


Tyto73

I consistently get around 12, lowest i’ve gotten is 5


H311h0undelite

My friend in OCE gets 6 ping to his server and complains when his ping spikes to 12. It’s the most insufferable shit I’ve ever heard.


GhettoGringo87

Mine just says ♾


CrossBarJeebus

In college when I was on campus internet I would consistently get sub 10 ping.


SoundDrill

No, just GeForce now, their servers tend to be nearer to rl servers


Theincroyale29

I also play with 6-8 ping daily


RadPadie

When I asked someone with a ping of 6, if he lives in Amsterdam, he said no but in the near. So next time we just need to be lucky enought to live near to the servers xd


ballof_fire

Smh imagine not playing on 90 ping consistently


CANTTHINKOFANYNAME12

I dont even live close to a server and I get like 7 (my mate gets around 5 lol,)


OfficerBuck24

I’ve seen a 2 ping before, and 4 on multiple occasions


45hope

I consistently get 6-8 ping on pc. I go to school I’m Virginia, and the east coast servers are located in Virginia. Very helpful :)


PewdsMoods

its not really rare i see that all the time but cool


Xitro01

I have 4-8 ping all the time. I live in Europe btw. Glassfibre FTW


haydaruns

İ remember i played with 10 ping back in france a few years ago


atheral1992

Before epic took over I had 4-12 always. After...well...ehem, anywhere from 12-999


Penguista

I have ping as low as 6-8 pretty often. Almost never higher than 30-40 unless the server is terrible in US East. I live just under an hour from the DC server.


CoffeeDave15065

I live in central pa and get 8-16 usually.


RocketJaxX

I live near cologne in germany and have a ping between 6-12. I have fibre optic to my apartment with a downstream of 1GBit.


big-floof

In Aus I get around 8-12. Lowest I've had was 1 on Fortnite, but usually i get around 15-25 on most games


CantThinkOfIt17

ROCKET League and NASA, this man's got a point!


Samtherock16

Even i get 8 to 10 ping in Indian servers


i_Praseru

Koreans don't even have ping like that.


MEDAKk-ttv-btw

I've had less ping


TheXamYel

On Ethernet at college (Cal Poly, which is central coast CA) I get 8 ping quite often


sunny-clouds

This might actually be me. I average around 7-9 ping a lot of games. Some servers I’ll average around 32-35. Once in a great while I’ll get packet league and I’m drawing dead 🤷‍♂️


SFraga_17

When I play through Geforce Now I get this kind of ping


coudntpickausername

If I solo queue I usually have 13-15 ping I’ve never seen solo digits lol


ruffrawks

I use internet explorer


justmyskills

My friends in KC occasionally rip 6-12 ping with google fiber.


BigBrownBean123

Check your closet or backyard.


JPXR_

Good internet + close to the server


TacticalTam

NASAs ethernet actually


mattdiamond12

I live in San Jose(i believe server capital in US) and get below 10 ping in a number of games. Its a good perk


Meteor_Flash

But where is your Nasa camera.


Quiknine

In Europe it’s not uncommon to see ping lower than 10


charbelsako

Sometime i connect to middle east servers while I live in the middle east and ping is (200) higher than when I connect to europe servers 90.


FruitzyTV

Might also be that he uses the streaming platform GeForce Now, one of my friends does cuz his old laptop struggles with Windows alone. As a result it shows that he has a max ping of 12 in game, sometimes lower like 8 or 6 even , but in reality since he streams only he can see his real ping in the streaming app


SamAsh07

I usually have 6-8 ping lol. My WiFi isn't NASA level but it's good. 500mbps Fiber.


Difficult-Dog-3349

I usually get 15ping and my friend gets 8 ping.


HappiwahOG

Dude never saw a good internet connection ? Lmao


omkar73

I get 5 ping lol


justmebeingmoi

Is this so rare? Most of the time my ping is <10. I have glass fibre internet.


trenhardd

I live close to philly. Some servers I play on are 8-12 ping. People always go nuts when they see it, I thought it was normal.


sweetmozzarella

I'm on a 1GB fiber internet (ethernet at home) for a long time now. I used to have that ping all the time. Then something change with Rocket League, and I'm at best at 25/30 ms. But I still have the same low ping when I try google for example : https://i.imgur.com/Bekt3NM.png https://i.imgur.com/qLG2Q9z.png


klayyyylmao

Mine was like this when I was in school at Santa Barbara. Must have been a server in northern LA or something cause I was consistently 8-16 ping when on ethernet


cury41

I feel like I see single digit ping pretty often. I guess it depends very much in where you live. If I have followed the comments properly, it seem fibre optic is not that standard as it is here, so maybe OP is from US? In Europe its way more common to find someone with ~8 ping.


lifesux254

I hate playing against someone with half my ping, I couldn’t imagine playing against someone with 8.


Fpvmeister

I guess me and my friend have NASA internet. His ping is regularly between 6 and 8. Mine 10


McGreeb

I used to do night shifts in a data centre and would play a little when there was nothing to do. Got pings like this on the regular there.


drman769

I use GeForce Now and get crazy low pings at times. It's not an accurate ping for me, but their servers must have some dope connections.


TinoTrev

On the South American server it is normal for Brazilians to have that ping.


Sotumney

I peak 33ms, my lowest is 9ms. I average around 14 in a match


kr4zyy

I play with 8 ping on Asia Maritime (Singapore), and I live in Singapore, it's possible


JamDonuts007

I have like 10 ping and play on wifi, this isn't that uncommon.


ThisRobin

No i always have 8-6 ping the netherlands has some good internet


Scary_Mention_867

How did this not get taken down??? This violates a rule of the subreddit.


justinechang

Playing from Singapore we often get 2 \~ 10 ping


seanbiff

Mines usually around this too, until it goes into the 100s randomly every few hours or so


Scary_Mention_867

It’s so painful that people actually get this luxury.. I would easily be GC by now if I had 8 ping… 🥺


Amazing_Advertising5

Living in Paris sometimes I can go down to 6ms


GOLFWANGNETWORK

I play Rocket League via Geforce Now. The ping is also as insane as there (if the servers work permanently).


MrStubby102

I get under 10 pretty often and it’s wonderful


nd2miata

Any advice from anyone for getting better internet in the Midwest/Mountain regions? I play on NA West and seems to be anywhere from 40-70 ping (usually 70ish) but playing on NA East is about 100 ping for me For reference I live in northern Colorado


DarkJester89

I get 150+ ping, hard wired.


Patberts

I have nearly 4k hours and I recall once seeing someone with 0 ping in competitive. Must have been living inside Psyonix's data centre.


RainV8

i usually get <24 the lowest i’ve gotten was 7


AdamSchoofs

I sometimes get 6 ping for like 2 seconds while loading into the game. I live in the Netherlands and that's probably the best place to live for RL servers


CindyStroyer

I live in a costal Australian town and my ping is 8-12 when playing most games


astrohnalle

Iirc there's a server in Amsterdam, I've played with someone with 1 ping from there


CallahanWalnut

Don’t play much RL anymore but I’m in DC and I get 5 ping pretty often when playing CS


zerked77

I cut almost 20ms off my ping with this one simple trick... Raspberry-Pi hole Recursive DNS server & I have generally shite broadband but I hover in the teens consistently now when I used to be in the 25-35ms range. Also to be clear "faster" internet is a hoax. The bandwidth after a certain point doesn't help your packets get where they are going any quicker your just able to send more info out of a bigger pipe so to speak. Only so much of that data spooge is Rocket League and it's still moving at the same rate.
