Default What ping is acceptable for you?


Just a random survey question. What kind of ping do you usually play with, in DotA or DotA 2? What is the highest acceptable ping for you?

If it's <100 i'll play heroes with fast action (carrier, ganker)
But if it's around 300,i'll play support.
Ping>400 is totally unplayable for me.

I usually play with 120~150 which is acceptable. Anything higher than that becomes unbearable.

I always have 300.

Don't notice any delay really, I can hit Invoker sunstrikes and Pudge hooks easily.

We are complaining about QUALITY not QUANTITY. I hope I am clear.

In short: People expect to play better matches the more they win, but happens vice versa.

About 100 is smooth,100-200 is acceptable,more than 300 will hurts your eyes (but still playable).More than 500 and your brain will bleed.

250 max. But can't evade several skills with a 200ms ping. Using Dagger fails in most cases.

I usually play with around 80, i can be ok up to 200ms. I guess it's playable if you have more but you need to get used to it for sure.

I played other games with 400ms but never Dota.

I feel comfortable with 180-230 MS. That's playable. And I'm flexible.

Open the console up and type in "ping". To enable the console, you'll have to tweak the Steam settings a little.
