Probably not, because what other f2p game is as awesome as this?

Seriously... There just isn't enough players to make this possible. I have to deal with the same "problem" you do and it doesn't bother me one bit.
Do you know why? Because it makes absolutely no difference to your play...

I think the only reason so many people agree with your POV whilst disagreeing with mine is due to the split/ratio of different skilled players. Gold badge is the top 3% of players. If i were to look up the elo's of everyone posting on this thread, most of them are below 1200-1250. They probably think that their "high" ping is what is holding them back from getting a decent elo when really, it's their lack of skill. I don't mean to sound harsh, so excuse me if i come off that way.

Edit: you guys can downvote me all you like, i'm sorry that you guys are so bad you're stuck in elo "hell" (doesn't exist, you're just bad).
High ping doesn't affect play as much as people think it does, but it DOES affect it significantly - especially when trying to carry a game at lower elos and split second differences can make or break a game (or at very high elo where the same happens).

I'm from NZ so i know what everyone is dealing with in terms of ping and tbh it makes such an insignificant difference to your play. You get so used to the 150-200 ping that it ends up not mattering at all.

If you think the "high" ping is what is holding you back from your gold/plat badge, you're sorely mistaken. Smh.
Let me explain this in terms you might understand.

Having 200 ping (I get like 170-190) means you have 0.2 seconds of delay. Now that doesn't seem like much, but when you couple that with your normal reaction time (between 0.1 and 0.2 seconds) then it becomes significant.

I play supports and certain things take a little longer (making it not as good). Clutch shields now have a 0.2 second delay. Spamming Janna's tornado now has a 0.2 second delay to cast and 0.2 second delay to launch. That means you can't use it to cancel mid-air abilities which is a major move by Janna unless I predict it 0.4 seconds in advance.

Alistar has the pulv/headbutt combo, the way people do this is by hitting Q as soon as they see Alistar responding to the headbutt command. Since it takes me 0.1+ seconds longer to send the Pulverize command I don't have the same time to respond. In fact, the only way for me to do the combo is to use the combo BEFORE Alistar responds to the headbutt. This means if I'm out of range I'll be headbutting the ground.

Flash + Combo with Janna.... yeah not happening. I'll probably ult them to safely as they have time to respond and flash away.

So while the 200 ping isn't keeping me from Plat. (but rather my lack of skills) It doesn't help. I have limitations and am not playing this game to it's full potential.
