Alright, Crown's Jailbreak has a common problem the all multiplayer games have. Everyone has a different ping. Americans has low ping (server is located in New York as far as I know) and Europeans-high. My suggestion is just to add artificial latency for players with low ping. For example, if a player has 60 latency server wait 40 more milliseconds, and the ping becomes equal to 100. I play with 150-160 ping and everything works fine, I don't sight the latency. So if the minimum ping is 100, noone will suffer, and the game will be more balanced especially in lr/fr game.
Everyone is unique, and everyone is typical for their uniqueness.

Read carefully, please. My last paragraph at least 100 ping for players with low ping. No more

This isn’t really even possible.

I never thought I would see a suggestion to purposefully cause lag

100 ping won't cause lag (I play with 150). But it will balance game a bit since Jailbreak is played from all over the world

and actually it's possible. Here's my fake C++ code (I don't know torque):
int Ping = player.getPing();
if(Ping < 100)
if(player.eventButtonPressed() || player.eventMouseMoved())
server.delayPlayer(100 - Ping);

Torque doesn't have any sort of "delayPlayer" method, like Crown said before. I understand being irked at having a high ping because of living far away but trying to balance it out would just be sketchy.
