Basically this. I've lost track of the counter arguments

"Ping isn't THAT big a deal. Stop crying"
To which I ask "You are located where, west coast? And what is your ping?"
"Yeah, it is like 15, your points?"
To which I simply respond "Exactly. Mine is never lower than 80 and sometimes as high as 120."

People that don't have to deal with ping in the range of 80-120 think it is no big deal but I promise you it makes a big difference. Even Riot has admitted in a post I wish I could find again that there is evidence to back up that West Coast players have significant higher "ELO" than those on the East Coast.

Heck go look at ELOPhant for examples. There is a very obvious chart showing the higher your ping the lower your elo. Bronze has the highest Ping which is proven with numbers and Riot has admitted this. Challenger players have almost no ping at all which is proven with numbers and Riot has admitted this. Yet...here we sit.

NA - all time ping (which is just season 3 since their were no ranks before, so basically 2013)

Challenger average ping 20
Bronze Average ping 129

That is no coincidence.

It's in the OP

Also, someone was worried about search times. It wouldn't make a difference, only search times that are long now are challenger (and I doubt there is anyone on the east coast in challenger maybe 1) So search times would not make a difference

Another argument used "I want to play with my friends" Fine then stay on the WC server. If you want better ping then switch but you are not forced to.

Or Riot could just have central servers having everyone who plays in NA play at 50 ping.

Bump. I've payed far too much for this game to sit around at over 100 ping (with the best internet service available here I must add) and have to just to "deal with it". Do you know what my ping is to most places in my giant Province of Ontario? 1-6ms, typically 2ms.
