I am an old player since PT 2008, LevelR and Heat online. I am in Brazil so I normaly have a ping of 200ms to Europe or USA., but I have a fast fiber connection, so no jitter. Even so I used to play PT/LeveR/Heat ok because the game compensate the ping. But now I see a lot of players flying and ppl said I am flying too.
because it isn't only YOUR connection that matters. Because the game is p2p based, if someone else's connection is bad... well you've seen the results. everyone needs to have a good connection not just 1 person.
