    Ping in servers

    I'm from Argentina (Most fricking austral country in the world, or 2nd don't know) why do i have the same ping(160-200) in the usa server (9000 km away from Arg), and the brazilian server (country right next to mine)?????

    Because the ping doesn't rely only on distance, it also relies on the time server and client take to communicate with each other. I'm from Brazil and when I play TF2 on an argentinian server I get 150 ping, just as when I play on an USA server I get 150 ping.

    Does that means that the brazilian server is way slower than the USA one?

    No, it only means that the distance doesn't make any relevant difference to ping.
