And it really bothers me that koreans get a lower latency than us, while much further away.
It hurts my performance in ranked, turning every small odd against me. I can't steal baron or other buffs, loose some close calls I know I would have won If I had a quarter second more and I miss a lot of last hits with mages and when I start with boots + pots as an AD carry.
You, sir, have my support. I hope Riot considers our appeal.
Lots of others foreing players plays with 200+ ping and still do well, and are able to perfom all these things nice.
Having a high ping is sure something bad, but u get used to it, cant really put all the blame on ping if you cant steal baron, last hit well, etc...
