Ping and You
What is ping, how does it impact your game, and why should you care
What is ping? Put simply, ping is a numerical representation of the strength of your connection to our game servers. You always want to see a lower number when you’re looking at your own ping. A low number is better because that represents the response time for the data requests your computer is making. Ping is measured in milliseconds (ms).
We recently added a ping indicator to King of the Kill to help you visually see the strength of your connection.
Red: 200ms and over
What can you do to lower your ping? Make sure you’re on the proper server based on where you’re connecting from. We added an indicator of what server you’re currently connected to in the top right corner of your screen while you’re playing King of the Kill. Do you want to change your server? You can do that by following these steps:
- Launch King of the Kill
- Select “Settings”
- Select “Region”
- Choose from one of the following servers based on your location
- North American
- South America
- Asia / Pacific
Making sure you’re connected to the proper region is a great step in ensuring that you and other players will have a smoother gameplay experience.
