I get about 150-160 ms ping, so snapshots feel difficult. Do you guys (who have high ping) find it annoying/detrimental to your gameplay? is there any way to compensate for it?

My minimum ping is 150, be thankful. :trollface:

And try to use cable, not Wifi for playing.

Server side reticle. At first a little annoying and indirect, but in the end it works.

Indeed, serverside reticle helps, it shows you where the server thinks you are aiming at instead of what the client shows. But in any way you need to be a bit more carefull when you shoot in order to hit. You probably won't hit more chancy shots. Also, when playing peek-a-boo you need to be careful not to shoot too soon or else you will actually hit the cover you were peeking from.

Enable the server reticle and use Awful tanker's mod:

It makes the server reticle much more pleasant to use.

shouting loud bad words usually helps temporary

If you have bad ping you should probably try to avoid getting into up close fights where fast reactions may be needed. If you play tanks that work better at range you may find it easier as it will give you time to work out how much lead to give.

You can also rebooting your router. Resetting it can sometimes cause it to find a better route to the servers.Then check to see if there is a difference in ping to both the servers. One can sometimes work better than the other.
