I always wondered if people play far away servers with higher ping, or (like me) only play on servers close to them. When I see people advertise their server, I think: if I am not close to the server, I wont even think about playing on it.
For me, close servers have ping in the 30s. I often play on a server with ping 50-80. And I might consider ping up to 120 or so (playable but not great). So the top server lists, or people saying come play on my server, don’t make any sense to me.
What about you?
