I'm going to be terse because people (including myself) will always find any excuse:
- If higher ping is better then simply pick a server further away
- The enemy can't magically get their information to the server faster than you can (if their ping is higher).
I agree playing with players with very high ping is annoying, I'm guessing because you don't get notified until they have put a few shots into you. But you have the advantage for sure, and if they beat you then they would have beaten you even more with lower ping. End of.
Scotty not being rude I love ya but this perpetual myth has to be stopped!
