I've already put that I could still lose with ping

The difference between ping in wzs and ping in duels is that in duels you're required to be very precise with your abilities. With warzones you can have ping cause problems and still be ok a majority of the time cos you don't need to be 100% precise in wzs cos you have healers, taunts and assists to help back you up when your skill or lag make those mistakes That being said it def wasn't meant to degrade a player but at the same time I don't want to hear the words "he's as good as you" I can take that statement if I were compared I certain but how could someone say the word "even" when it's not even at all in terms of handicap?

Also Andy, did you even read what I posted. Never heard someone twist my words that hard.

I'd have to agree with Cathleen. Ping is pretty sucky sure, but being American, living in Cali. I've had it the whole time being on this server. I don't think I've complained about my lag or ping issues. It's all playable still. I have a healer, I click as well. People probably say I'm a bad healer mostly because you don't know me and you don't really like me, oh well. The ping problems is playable, everything can be timed. Trust me ik, I've been through it all along lol. If I'm going over a fire pit, I know my merc's limits. Think okay well that one is up, pop a defensive cooldown run through and have someone jump to me or pass or okay don't go up yet because I know I will get stunned, wait for a pass or opening... About knockbacks... it can be very frustrating timing the knockbacks but can do. Even if my mercs knockback is all around, I play a sorc too. Do just fine. About me grabbing the ball before you in huttball that one time Mosh. I was just there first, had nothing to do with your ping. I have bad ping too lol. Don't complain about melee, I played sin, as well as leveled a sent to 50. The only difficult thing about playing those classes was being a clicker. Most times I use my ping to my advantage, not as a tool or excuse. About what Andy said... A good player isn't about how you play but also how you react to people. Kinda learnt that. Mi'ri for example, not only was she an amazing healer, but she was an amazing woman irl. Very gentle. You will always lose games and wins some or lose duels and win some, but what makes the difference isn't your ping but how you use everything to your advantage.

Nice Carthy . I have a Level 24 sin and a level 32 operative healer there atm. The lowbie pvp is brutal though. pubs seem to win lowbie most of the time. Might decide to make a sentinel or a guardian once i get both the sin and the operative to act 3.

I actually have a 50 Shadow, Vanguard and Scoundrel on The Bastion atm damn good server for PvP pops are amazing.

Playing on constant 3 bars over there only notice the ping when I drop to 2bars or under but on 3 its perfectly fine.
Oh dear lol, this has turned into what I didn't want it to. I don't have problems every attack I use lol. 90% of my
gameplay is ok. Like Cathleen said, it became a mechanic to deal with.

Everyone knows I have no problem wrecking on any toon I play. I'm still Mosh, still destructive. I made this as a complaint post, that's it. I'm being a little crybaby ***** about the last year of having to deal with the little annoyances of high ping screwing me so many many times. So please ignore it. I have nothing to prove or nor do I have to prove anything . That post was my way of finally venting which I haven't done in a long damn time.

No one here can say I haven't slowly became nice over time. Hell, remember lordoss days? Every single day we'd come on here and bash one another including you Carthy. we've all came a long way since that time imo and this is just me slipping back to the darker side of myself for a day

Daffy, this isn't about ping in that sense. It's just the little things that annoy/piss me the off just like anyone else that plays on high ping. My ping issues are just being made openly. I'll sometimes go an hour without noticing myself getting screwed over but hey even if ping screwed me one time in a week if still be furious.

I guess my rage is the sacrifice I made for being the sweetest person in the world irl and the biggest douche in swtor when I get competitive. I dont like making many friends cos when someone is my
friend I can't be mean to them, I'd just feel bad.

The funny thing is that those of us out in other parts of Asia get better ping on US servers, and have more frequent WZ pops than on Dalborra. I just rolled a lowbie Assassin on the Harbinger, and the server lag is around 150-200, 1/3 of what I've been getting on Dalborra in recent weeks.

On a melee class its like night and day in terms of having abilities activate when and where you want them, and especially valuable is avoiding those lag spikes where your health flies to zero when you didn't think you were taking that much damage.

The downside is though that the lowbie players there are absolutely horrid compared to our server.

While guess what I live in America and have a constant 220-350 ms and you dont hear me complaining on the forums or to anyone because of my ping being so high. You didnt see me coming on here to complain that i lost to Keiga he is better skilled than i am even if i dont have my ping so high. out of the 5 juggys i accept my place as the fifth as to the two juggys from SnX that could not make it i accept my place as 7th juggernut on the server and yes i do have the balls to say this why because i dont care what others on the server or just others in general think about it. Yes i might joke with Keiga that im better than him on vent but we both know even though it doesnt need to be said he is better. You however CLAIM that YOUR the BEST but it has been showed on this forum that you have be weighed you have been measured and have been found wanted by the fact that you have lost one dual and have to come on here and complain the fact that you lost to "lag" you know what if you were so called the best you would have won even with the "lag"

Now to comment on your post :

"What would happen if I played on 30ms connection?
I would be able to play like Jwalsh, Celo, Lycaon and Aznpower(when he was on 30ms). Same skill level just don't get hindered by ping when they need it."

out of the four of these players Celo and Lycaon are and should be the only two players that you named to be feared players Jwaish and Aznpower i rarely even see playing anymore as far as im concerned they do not count. sure they had skill but the fact remains that they dont play as much anymore they do not deserve to be called feared skilled players anymore.

"I believe some ppl are already too bad to care, just don't care or play ranged classes since theyre not as affected by ping nearly as much as a melee. People like me who want to win, care about the little things that screw you over. It's not about taking it too serious, I want to win,what's wrong with wanting to win?"

ppl are bad because you say that they are bad guess what alot of those "bad ppl" you claim are much better than you by far. I like winning and i want to win alot sometimes i have to drop group with guildies because i wish to PvP more hardcore than most of my guildmates wish to play. ill even tell you a secret when i go hardcore pvping i play Britteny Spears music why because i wish to win my matches. you might consider me to be a complete crap player but i dont care because i know better that you think that you are a god player and im telling you here and now that you are not you play in the past you compare yourself to players that either no longer play or dont play as good as they used to learn to accept losing duals


"When am I finally leaving Dalborra?
March 1st. Finally going back to America so time difference will be too great to play here anymore.(I know a lot of you are happy I'm leaving )"

And as to you leaving GOOD leave sooner why dont you. like i said i play in america in the Central time zone not only am i a college student taking 14 hours of classes and have two jobs one of them computer programming i am still able to make all most all my guilds raids and in-house rated pvp and still get enough sleep to function why cant you ? you fail to be unable to mange your time and be so called the best ? LOL

being the better player means learning to accept defeat and move on you have to lose more than you win to learn to win better. a concept you will never learn and you will over look this why i know that is because you thinking winning more than losing makes you the better player which fails all the time.
I don't care what you say about Mosh's complaining, but Azn and Jwalsh are still a power to be feared. Correct me if I'm wrong but Jwalsh beat Nuisance in a series of duels AFTER the tournament. For some reason he wasn't interested in participating.

Yeah I just gotta say, Idk what not playing very often has to do with being feared and skilled in WZs. Doesn't really matter that Jwalsh and Azn don't play much atm cause of work obligations, when they *are* around, they are still just as dangerous as ever.

I don't think it's very fair to them or their abilities to write them off just because they don't play as often as they used to.
