Just wanted to ask if anyone here has played these games. I mainly want to know about the kind of pings you guys are getting.If possible mention details of your internet connection as well.

I tend to shy away from multiplayer (especially FPS) since I have wireless broadband (Tata Photon) and popular opinion seems to be that Wireless=Bad Pings. But I played CS 1.6 on an Indian server recently and got pings in the range 8-20 ms. I know neither of these games have Indian servers, but still, what kind of pings can i expect?

If you were able to get 20ms ping on Indian servers in 1.6, you'll definitely get playable pings in Tribes. Not sure on planetside though.

I reached level 11 something in planetside 2 then i stopped playing cuz i bought bf3 :D. If you don't have money to buy bf3 the planetside 2 is very good game with massive maps that u will get tired to walk by if u go by foot. :D

This game is how MMO games ate supposed to be. Best experience for me. I get 300-400ms on my bsnl bb 850combo plan.
But the thing is, my gpu isn't good enough. :(

Whereas on T:A, I get pings around 100-200ms

Most of the servers have higher than 500 ping for me. I am using BSNL, it may be my ISP only. I used to get below 200 ms ping for Battlefield 3 SG servers at night. I stopped playing BF3 for some time as most of the SG servers are empty. I thought Planetside being mmorpg no one will notice your ping as lot of players playing in one server. On BF3, max 64 player limit make it easy to notice player with high ping, even getting kicked for it.

Checking the steam link now.
