Implement ping restrictions to arena

General
If someone have over 100 ping, never let them enter arena. !@#$ing bull%^-* to have someone warping all over the screen, looking like they jump down and then suddenly they're back up again. Just ban them from arena. Don't let them play.
I would prefer an !@#$%^- restriction to all group content, starting with this guy.
Is it stopping you from breaking 1200?

100 ms is not much. The game was designed to be played with much higher latency. I dont recall if it was 300ms.

No, it wasn't. Over 100 ms the game becomes unplayable.

Lol, no it doesn't. It's one tenth of a second. The global cooldown is 1-1.5 seconds base.
Lol op u are banning whole countries in wow. For example in my country most people have avergae 250 ping

holy crab, you are pretty delusional mate.
Australians played with 300 ping for over a decade and they were doing just fine.
You can easily play to US from EU, which is about 150 ms minimum.

He's right tho. The game lags even more since BFA, and after 100ms, the game is like a private server. It just lags hard.
I play on EU servers from New Zealand after moving here and the game is just fine at 250ms. No lag and group content plays just fine.

You realise that's not 100ms ping, that's a latency hack.

No, I'm playing with 30 ms usually. Above 100 ms is clearly noticeable and has a noticeable effect on my interrupts and rotation and players warping. Especially noticeable with shadowstep when you end up miles behind your target.

Back when I played mage in TBC I couldn't blink cheap shots before rogues got poison up on me if I had more than 100 ms, because it wasn't fast enough at reacting to me pressing blink above that. If I was over 100 ms, I could die to rogues. If I was at my normal ms, I could kite them forever since they never got poison up to slow me at the opener.

Yeah, obviously. But that doesn't mean that 100ms inherently makes the game unplayable.
