    they aren't going to answer, but the reason you lag is because they are connecting you to servers farther away rather than local ones, and the reason for that is usually "lack of players" in your area, in the queue, at that time.

    in the US west to east coast is 100-130 ms. Foreign servers are 200+ if they have to go over an ocean or otherwise somehow not directly connected over land.

    In general it doesnt matter how good your connection is for games, what matters is stability (packets making it to their intended destinations) and distance (time it takes to get there). Games don't actually use a lot of bandwidth and they have abysmal tolerance for dropped packets/interrupted connections and also very sensitive to distance (time for round trip connections).

    You're probably looking at about a half second delay at 250ms for a round trip for every action or update. Thats not fun to play in. Thats pretty close to dialup gaming - except there are WAY more LPB's now.
