Because laggers ruin games.

There's a handfull of games that already have this feature, where you'll get kicked for having too high ping, counterstrike being the best known more than likely.

Laggers make games impossible to win, especially when they either make up the majority of your team or play your top contending tanks. It can also cause them issues and make them unable to get into a game before it's over at all. This results in a whole lot of time spent playing that isn't enjoyable at all, or even remotely playable.

So let's make it so that people with excessively bad internet simply dont get to play.
I know, it sounds mean, telling people "Too bad so sad" and all, but THEY're ruining the game for the MAJORITY of the people.

Now it wouldn't be set scrupulously low, like 100 ping. Maybe 250ish. Any higher and you get kicked from the match (Goes up in flames). :D

This would reduce 'failteams' and i would imagine take a crapload of stress off the matchmaker and servers. And since wargaming puts such emphasis on graphics and generally looking better over playability, you cant whine that their focus is on the low end players.

So for the sake of the game and it's players who are lucky enough to have the computer power and internet to play this behemoth of a game, they must be dealt with. And if you do have 999 ping quite often, and dont like the sound of it, nobody is requiring you play the game buddy.


And all you people in austrailia, maybe wargaming will find it in their heart to give you your own mainland server c:

And just to be clear, since i know there's plenty of people here who have trouble reading small words:
This wont target everybody under the sun with bad ping. Only those with 300+, where they actually start to affect gameplay for others.MEANING that it only affects those with actually bad internet, not everyone with mildly bad internet. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO THINGS. AKA: Australians would still be able to play, those with 999 ping would not.
You know, where people start to lag-out from cover, hit team mates, and generally cause us to lose.

It would be helpful if we had a guide to show us where the lag REALLY starts to hurt so we could have a more accurate kick point.

This doesn't make much sense.  Let people play who want to play.  It doesn't affect your win rate or the relative skill of the teams, because these people are randomly distributed, half on your team, half on the enemy team.

For what it is worth, my ping is generally between 90 and 140.

Less players means less moneys for WG and if you dont like the fact some people live to far from the server or have an bad isp go play an game that has server that has ping limits mainly FPS.

private servers usually do this because they won't have to worry about the negative consequences that go along with kicking high ping players

if WG were to kick high ping players then you'd get responses like the above, this would result in a bad image for WG whether you agree with it being bad or not. Since WG is a business, this will result in probably crappy business.

A private server can just say "suck it bro, go play on some other server" and not have to worry about anything.

So basically you are blocking people from say the bottom tip of South America not be able to play on the NA server just because their ping is a little worse...totally fair. This isn't COD or BF where servers are all over the place...

Not cool Mr Mays. They're ALOT more people on this game who lag, either ping wise or FPS wise than you think. Realistically you only need about 13 FPS to play. IF you have less than 100 ping. Now my ping goes anywere from 89-999 at any given time. Average 180-250, but like most people i have no control over how much ping i have...Unless you can give me some tips to decrease PING with an ATT modem, and a cable conection to the 3rd imput slot? If you can that would be great.

-1  stupid idea. Just cause you are near the server location and have awesome ping, doesn't mean you have any more right to play than people with higher ping...and believe it or not, i usually have a ping that is over 250 (I'm Australian) and I've learnt how to compensate. Stop being so selfish.

And yet other online games do it anyway, to wonderful effect.

How does less players somehow = less money? Simply playing the game doesn't earn them jack squat.

Yeah, because this would totally target them if their ping was a little worse.
But it's not. Constantly going 999 ping is not "A LITTLE WORSE". Stop being ignorant.

I play on really crappy connections(150-250ms) out in the boondocks. I'm still better than 58% of the population.

It's not being selfish when the MAJORITY of players have perfectly acceptable internet.
Why should you enjoy the right to be a bum end on a team, causing them to lose just because you want to play with crap internet? Stop being so selfish D:<

And by the quick 'description' of who it'd target, you would see it wouldn't affect you. SO YEAH, STOP WHINING AND ACTING LIKE IT'LL AFFECT YOU WHEN YOU'RE CLEARLY IN THE CLEAR.

The whole point is to remove the excessively bad laggers who cant actually play, who still try to.

Considering the amount of people who have agreed with you (very few, if any) I think you are the one being selfish. Besides, I just told you that Ive learnt how to play effectively despite a high ping, thus making your comment invalid...in fact, this entire thread is invalid.

they'll complain

people can go from having good internet to bad internet. If they have spent money on the game, then they will feel like they'd be being cheated out of their money.

I'm not saying I agree with either position here, I'm just saying that WG can't go about kicking people with low ping because they'd get a bad image.
