The reason why FA is still so strong to this day is because they are a open community for everyone, changing that with idiotic rules like this will destroy it within months, simply because ping doesnt work that way. Lol.
As long as your ping is stable, So not jumping between larger numbers constant, there is really NO disadvantage. I am from EU and I mostly play on Jay1. (As Kyler Quinn) nowadays, if you wonder. And sometimes I play decent and the other I got rolled.
And that with a average ping of 110-120.
