    See this @EA_Andy? High ping players get too much of an advantage, it ruins the experience for people with a low ping. This is what creates the inconsistent gameplay.

    Dice put high ping players at a disadvantage by making them lead their shots. You shouldn't cater to unstable poor connections in a competitive mode.

    This is a wind up? 2 bars and you don’t get depay? What is your ping or what ever it is?

    I’m on gigabit internet with a wired connection and it takes awhile to get 5 bars last couple weeks though a 5 bar match has been hard to find

    Having a high data rate means f-all. It’s all about ping, if you’re isp has heavy traffic where you are you’re f’d.

    Fibre optic broadband really does help

    Other way around, your internet is garbage and your opponents are getting delay waiting on your 2 bar connection to catch up. Look up lag compensation.

    He has a gigabit connection, he's obviously on fibre. He may be miles away from the servers though.

    I would love to know what server I’m on but without logging into my logs every match there’s not a way to do it
