For those of you who do not believe ping affects games

Challenger tier ping is an outlier. Most challenger tier players are professional players and there aren't any pros from Australia or New Zealand.


That's true but there is clearly a trend with all the other divisions

wait how does gold have the lowest queue time?

I'm wonder how challenger doesn't have 10-20 min queue times

Seems to be that way on every streamer I watch

As you can see the average ping at each division bracket gets lower which means people with lower ping have a not insigificant advantage compared to people playing with higher ping.


gamefaqs pls.

tonight the stupidity is too terror.

Correlation does not imply causation. Just saying.


no one said lower ping causes higher elo.

Its clearly pings having an affect on division bracket

zzz. Is it that hard to understand?
"Having an affect" does not equal "cause".

For example, being drunk while driving leads to more car accidents.
That is not saying being drunk while driving causes accidents, but it contributes towards car accidents.

Same with this example.

Ping is inversely proportional to elo.
That is not saying having low ping causes high elo, it merely CONBTRIBUTES to elo.

Oh and a real cause is:

"the apple fell from the tree because of gravity"

That's a cause. Gravity CAUSED the apple to fall from the tree.
If not for the force of gravity, the apple would not fall from the tree.

If I was suggestion ping caused division differences then it would be implying:

If everyone had zero ping, everyone would be the exact same elo.

Wrong.

It is not a REASON. It's a contribution. I did not say "people get high elo because of low ping". That's a REASON.

Neither did I say "Low ping results in high elo" WRONG.

I said "Ping affects division brackets"

That's TRUE. It's not a CAUSE. did you go to school son? Know about cause and effect? or are you trolling

Hmm Interesting graphs. I've played on both East Coast and West Coast and don't really feel any difference from 70-80 ping to 20-30. I've tried playing on EU servers at about 200 ping and that was a noticeable difference but you can definitely adjust. IMO it makes a small difference.
