I love this game and I think Riot have done a great job with it, but I cannot play on 300-500 ping.

My internet is average for where I live, I used to be able to play on 200 ping constantly and that was great, but 300 ping is a noticeable delay and I can feel it effect my performance.

None of my friends (I go to a private school so they don't have poverty internet) have under 160 ping.

I have never played on godlike ping (>90). In fact I have never played with ping under 160. I am sure this ping is effecting my elo and my performance and I am sure there would be MANY competent players from Oceania that would be able to compete in tournaments but don't get noticed because they can't compare with americans with the ping disadvantage.


Anyway, I hope quitting will increase my grades at school. Please think about this Riot. I would love to become a competitive player one day but that isn't possible when I am at such a disadvantage to low ping players.

inb4 people say "my friend is from nz and he is 2k elo" - Perhaps your friend has the potential to be the best player in the world but his practise is being inhibited by external factors like ping.


Maybe I'm exaggerating, I don't know.

As an Australian, I (slightly) feel your pain but my average ping is about 170-200.

I'm from NZ too but I don't know any different than having 200 ping so I'm just used to it.

I was amazed at the feel of Dota2 when I played on their australian servers. Its a real difference going from 230 ping in league to 60 ping in Dota.

NZ player here, know that feel. My average ping is about 220. 300+ is crippling, if not unplayable.

10/10 would like to play on green ping for once.
