I don't play online much, so I don't know a lot about it. Hopefully someone can fill in the gaps. I have a good broadband internet connection, and I usually connect with a 30-40 ping. What I've noticed is that people on the server that have a ping of 200-300+ seem to warp a lot when I'm flying with them..

Now I've never played IL2 with a slow connection, so I can't tell what sort of warping they get...

Probably what I dislike about online IL2 is checking your six and seeing a plane warp into position behind you.. arrgghh!

Unfortunately I have found no server where everyone has a low ping.. do such servers exist?

They will exist but bear in mind that people are all over the place and networks, being networks, sometimes aren't operating as optimally as they can/should. Also consider that what the users box is doing may have a dramatic impact upon ping response times. Next time you are online check out the response time of the machine hosting the game and you will see what I mean.

The lower the ping the better the high ping and warping about you see is lagging from the others.

One thing i was told, i use cable but in your game file list it as a 56k this way it wont suck away from you and give to another who is lagging. Whether this is true or not i don't know but you might want to try it. As for low ping rooms you may find a few hosts with good pings but it seems most people are still of 56k with will lag so you will still have the warping feature.

I know my old comp i use to shoot at planes that were long gone by the time my shells got to where they were.

May you not become a dirt torpedo.

Yeah but remember that the one who warps alot, also has got alot of stutters.

measured to you again.
