    x2 ping than normal

    hello, i got a real big issue with my ping!
    i live in gernany pretty central. when i play on DE frankfurt i get 60-70 ping when i do a pingtest to a server in frankfurt it shows 22-27.
    even on nl servers i get 60 ping and pingtest shows 25 max.
    what can i do to improve the ping to ql servers - sth must be wrong here :-(

    i am pretty new t this problem so i hope sbd can give me an advice!

    Pingtest doesn't tell you what your in-game ping will be. They use different servers than the ones that QL uses, so you can't rely on them.
    You can however use "ping" in the command prompt (with the IP of the QL server) to good an estimate of what the server ping will be.

    It wasn't a matter between it being easiest to tell from in-game. You asked why your ping wasn't the same that Pingtest gives you; I told you it's because they aren't using the same servers / routing and therefore are useless for QL.

    I then offered a realistic way to check the servers outside of the game itself (Only if you copy the IPs down though).

    It's not an id-caused issue. You can complain to them, but they're not the ones who are providing the routing. You would be required to contact the specific server's ISP since it's their fault.

    They're not optimal towards what you want (lowest ping possible), but it's not as if they're 2000 ping (Read as "Unplayable"), so the answer *is* "No, the servers are fine enough for playing on".

    Generally in games you're not given an exact amount for your ping. You also generally don't 'get' to complain about it either, because as long as it's playable it's fine.
