first I wanna say I love the game. I'm not trying to complain about your choices for anything but this is something that really bugs me.
At first I thought it was my internet provider. Internet in Alaska is a joke. It can go fast but everyone has caps and during peak hours you get ridiculously high ping. At first I thought it was just a busy time of the day but thanks to your addition of the FPS/Ping monitor I've been able to watch it and compare it to my ping tests online.
Normally my ping for games is 85-90. Yeah it's not great, but it was good enough. Since the NightBatNerf update I consistently have a 170 ping! It's ridiculous! =( I still get my 85-90 on pingtest.net then drop into game at 170.
Just some notes for the devs I guess, but I thought you should know. I can only add my comments on the after game survey so many times. Thank you for the great game.
