You put a ping bar on seasons.
The ping bar is between yourself and the server.

Yet seasons is played over P2P.
Now cal me stupid if you wish but explain why you do not have a ping bar between player and player please?
Also please explain why your are using ping when the game is not using ping to play?
Are you that certain ISPs are not manipulating ping to make themselves look good on pingtest.net etc but then treating the game packet protocol like p2p was in the days before net neutrality?

In a nutshell shouldn't you be actually testing with the same packets the game uses?

    And how do we know exactly what the latency indicator is based on? Is it described anywhere or are you just making assumptions?

    Are you referring to the latency bar as a ping bar as i don't think that's the case.

    Had a think and got to a conclusion. Apparently you're a bit dense

    In BF4 you could rent out servers, why cant ea either get more and better servers or at least let people do this.

    I heard p2p in fifa first connects to a server and then somehow uses both players internet as well. Im not an expert on this but it seems it uses servers and both players internet somehow because your opponent can effect the connection by doing dodgy things in game.
