I would love to know how many tankers are playing from South Africa.  State your game experience and connectivity. 

I play on when I'm lucky on good day 240 millisecond delay, bad days 400 millisecond delays. It boils down to the fact that I cant play my lights or medium properly. Heavies, td's and SPG's not to shabby to play..

 

Ps. This is not a complaint or whine.

the 250 to 350mS delay makes play style choice more of a deciding factor than pure skill would..... peak a boombing and town brawling gives the oponent nearly 200mS advantage in reaction time... Lights are a definite challenge for me as the mistiming of steering inputs will often result in clipping or hanging up on rocks and buildings...... Overall I just laugh when people whine about laging 80-100ms... that would be truly awesome if I could play off such a low ping :-)

Loads of South Africans playing mate. Quite a few South African clans too and a fair amount of them are pretty good players with impressive stats. I'm South African, born and bred Durbanite, but live in the UK and have recently defected to becoming a UK citizen although still have dual nationality. Is telkom your SP or are there others now?

Nice to meet you...

Yip Telkom, dear old Telkom is my SP... And they will give a world of excuses to why I'm paying for a 4meg line but only get 2meg... I so wish for a better connection...  It will be fabs if I just once be able to take my lights and mediums out on the run without having to spin on the spot, or go on a suicide run by landing in the water... It's a shytie feeling when your tank just go off on its own and run of a cliff or run into water..The comments horrid, I know what it must look like, but yes got to the point where I know which tank to play in which frames and ping and I  dealing more damage now than ever before...

Another of the rare breed here! I play on 200ms on a good day and 240ms on a bad day, it was only weird at the start, now it feels normal. At least it doesn't affect one as badly as say playing CoD or something on that ping would. No trouble playing any tank classes, but I may get better ping due to being in the west of the country? :)

My ping sorted now, running solid 200 and most extreme 300 but it's a huge improvement to what I use to get...

I used to play on US servers many years ago with 150 ping (not wot obviously) and did OK. So do you play on EU or NA servers?
