The ping is a bit confusing for this game, as it is not really a ping but more the ajax interval time for updating the world's events, NPC's and tiles. I'd like to set this lower but am afraid to reach the server limit very soon, especially with more players joining.
AlanSmithee, what do you mean with "unplayable"? How much ping were you having?
Thanks for the feedback Black-Rock and AlanSmithee! Actually, a "ping" of 1000 is normal for this game (700 average) and yeah there is always a little lag unfortunately. This is because PHP and Ajax can't handle speeds like a normal game server can. I play tested with a friend while we both had about 700 ping and found the game quite playable.
It's so cool I don't even need to give you a link for it.
