    ok, this may be a stoopid question, BUT, what benefit is it to lower the ping rate?

    The ping is the latency between you and the server so if your ping is lower then the reaction time between you and the server will be much quicker.

    If you have HIGH pings....

    With a high ping, you will find it hard to enjoy the game. You walk around feeling as though someone has tied some bricks to your feet, gameplay will not be smooth,you'll find yourself stuck and unable to move, or you might walk forward but a few seconds later you're back to where you were before this really spoiles the online gaming experience.

    Also in the reply to the above post i went to have a look at the tips at the site link but i had to look alot harder when i got there for the correct page so to save you all the trouble here it is
