That's not entirely true. I play from the Philippines on Connery with a stable ping around 200. When my connection runs through Singapore before going to LA then I get around 400ms. Anyway, that does seem to be a sweet spot where everything looks normal on my screen but teammates tell me I'm skipping around a little. I run a VPN when this happens to get my ping back to 200. But I've talked to guys with great connections in the States who use a VPN to purposefully send their signal to Asia, then back to the States to dial in their ping to 400 or so. So a certain amount of git gud does apply, but there is room for the game to improve. Anyway, that and conveniently losing your internet connection is what I refer to when I mention lag wizardry. It's exploited on a wide scale in this game. They seriously need to set a ping limit that invalidates damage when someone is above 300 or 350. That would let just about anyone in the world find a server, but stop this connection manipulation.
