High ping CS:GO (mainly matchmaking)
I looked on internet about high ping in cs:go but nowhere were usefull informations. Maybe somebody know something what can help me. I have problem with ping in cs:go mainly in matchmaking but sometimes also on dm servers,etc. I have usually ping about 30-40 on web pages and in cs 1.6 as well, but when i play matchmaking i have latency about 1000+ ping for 5 sec then 5 seconds is allright(ping about 50-80) and then again ping high as hell. I think it is due to low upload (just 2mbit/s) but i am not sure. When i am not at home and on different internet i didnt have never problem with ping. Btw at the start when i was home everything was allright but last month it is terrible and unplayable. Do u have any ideas if it is caused by low upload or no? Thanks. (sorry for bad english)

Hmm, no idea really but I can say you that I with 4mbps download and 0,50 upload have 40-90 ping on matchmaking(depends on server location), average ping is 75..

then turn your max ping lower in options when you look for MM servers. Ping has nothing to do with your upload anyway. And 2mbits more is than enough. You could even stream and play at 720p

It depends on the location of the server and i doubt valve has a lot of servers in your region thats why your ping is higher since most servers in the EU are hosted in central/northern europe

About 1000+ ping #6 said it.
Either someone in your house uses the internet connection as well or malware

what rate use guys 18000 or 80000? or more?=D
2013-08-05 17:03:57
128000 is optimal if you play on 128 tick servers. Even if you don't I think it's recommended.

MM scoreboard ping isn't real ping afaik - 'ping' in console to get it.

How about the net_graph ping? Isn't it correct?

i think thats what he meant :D
2013-08-05 17:17:07
Do you mean that he meant that the net_graph ping is false or that net_graph shows the right ping?

I hate mm-even with 130 ping I am pawning those noobs and they bitch about my ping that they cannot aim me lol,they don't know my ping is high cause of the distance to the server and I am not teleporting.

same problem bro! :'(
2013-08-05 18:05:32
I have 80000 rate now but i tried many options and many modification on my config, nothing changed... i can try to find any malware/virus but i dont think this is reason of my ping, btw some of you think its due to downloading, i am sure this isnt problem because when i am downloading ping is higher but dont jump like in cs:go and ping is measured simply(speedtest.net,pingtest.net,or just simple through command prompt)
And back to the virus/malware... i dont think so because i have no visible viruses/malweare and when i am in school or on different internet i never had problem like now.
Thanks anyway, I will try to find anything what can help me

Simply try the same thing (the connection) with a different computer, borrow a laptop from a friend, etc., you will see what's what. I bet the computer (presumably bloated) is the reason.

matchmaking servers suck, sometimes i get 400stable ping for an hour.

and its only on valves matchmaking servers because they are shit

Just to make sure, just your pcs for viruses. update your router.

Well I'm getting this problem right now. Me and my friends get into a lobby, we start the match, they have 40 ping and I have around 130 (WHICH NEVER USED TO HAPPEN AND I ALWAYS USED TO HAVE 25-50). It just happened suddenly and I have no idea what happened. I tried cs 1.6 - my ping is okay on every single server. So are there any solutions?
