Server + Ping

Hello Boys n Girls so i’ve a Problem with my Ping even if I join German hostet Server i have around 80ms same goes for Games that are hostet from a friend of mine well I just want to know if this is smth normal or if it’s just because I suck ( got a 16k Internet connection )

80ms is what you’d expect when the host lives somewhere near you or you’re connected to a proper server center on the other side of Europe.
The route the connection takes also has a pretty major role, as does the connection of the host.
