does anyone have an answer about that issue. when i do browse the serverlist, i do see - as an example "#2 Elite!Warriors^" - servers with high ping over 100. but when i do join the server, the ping is around 40. what could that bee, any ideas?

thanks for the support

    AFAIK if you refresh the server browser, you do not ping them directly. Your ping gets redirected over Steam-Server. Depends on the game of course. I may be wrong tho, but that's what it was back as Source was a new thing. Obviously if you're connected to a server, the redirect is missing. In addition does a connected player have a higher priority than someone who is pinging (flood protect).
