Okey i was just thinking, how many times havn't i done bad in a lol game because of bad connection to the servers (my internet goes up and down, so i can have one game with 90 ping and the next with 1500). So i have an idea, what if they added a ping test on the profile page. All you have to do is go on the profile tab and click test ping/connection or something. Then you will know you ping before it's to late. I don't know how hard this is to make, or if it is seen as a necesarity, but i thought it would be helpfull.

Yeah i know i can do that, (thanks for it anyway) but it's anoying having to do that everytime before you go into a game. It's really anoying being excited to play, and you see your ping and you know you've already lost.

You could use http://speedtest.net/ or the pingtest they provide. Its a superfast test by just using your browser. Problems is this tests to their closest server and not the servers by riot. Maybe someone knows where the riot servers are placed, so you can speedtest to a server by this website close to riot's ones.

Only different option I think of, otherwise, just use the above mentioned options...

Yeah i know of all the different options to get better ping by not download and speed and pingtest. But those test can be very misleading. Because as you said they test the closest server. So i can have 150 ping on a test and 300-400 ping in a game.

I'm not really asking for alternative options or help to better my ping cause i know what to do and not do when playing games, it's more a question if it's posible to add a ping test to the game itself. I mean it shoudn't be to hard, and it would be a easy way for everyone to check if they will have a good ping or not. And it would be very usefull, especially for people like me with a very varied ping.

Why ping google when you can ping pvp.net?... well that would give you the US server, but maybe Riot Games can open a port for ping testing on the EU server..

I doubt the actual game server has anything to do with pvp.net.

With the wonderful search function I found a wrenchman post in about 5 seconds:

"Tracert and ping requests are blocked by the login servers.
You can't go further with your network analysis."
