PingBetter, anyone know of it?

»www.pingbetter.com/

I'm moving to Okinawa shortly and will have to play World of Warcraft on an Oceanic realm, whose servers are all on America's west coast. This causes pretty sucky ping (like 200ms on average). Is this program worth a shot at my $6/month? What do you guys think?

I just don't buy into the hype that some guy sitting at 30ms is really going to outplay me by some detectable margin.

Most online games nudge their timing by some amount, so even if you have a 30 ms connection to them, it treats it like it's 200 ms anyway to level to playing field.

Dunno, these guys are obvious heavy-hitters who know what they are talking about. How could you not believe 5/5 stars???

In all seriousness, $6 is a small price to pay to find out of it does any good.

Yeah, for $6 it's worth a shot.

I'd also give it a shot, but find out how bad the connection is at first.

if you're sitting at 600ms and it takes it to 200ms, it's totally worth it

But if you're sitting at 200ms and it takes it to 120 --- not so worth it.

there are lots of tunneling tutorials that I would try before I actually paid anyone anything for the same service.
