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

There are lot of benefits available.
Ping is very important one when you are playing games through online and it's varying in different games.It's related to your internet speed.If you ping rate is high,your internet speed also low and you can't play any game.So you will need to decrease ping rate.According to me,lower ping is better solution.You can check whether your ping rate is low or high using Whoisxy.com

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
