I don't know too much about it.

It's a message sent between the client and server with an aknoledgement message sent back to test the response time of the client (you). Something like this anyway.

But basically ping tells you about their connection to the server and if they are lagging.

Under 150 is good enough but after that then players cant handle sending and receiving information from the server and it gets delayed or distorted or something and they experience a skip in time called a lag. This is also bad for you because they are not sending the information to the server in time so there player models are warping around the place and are hard to hit because they are not always in the position they are visually in.

and it somehow lags other people on the server

sorry i don't know how to explain it too well

Thanks Billy,

Sounds complicated to me and as you know, me and computers are not the best mix lol!

Cheers
