You say "only", but for those of us who's ping on a good day was between 250-300ms, it was miraculous. It is interesting though, how lag compensation on one particular aspect of the game can make such a big difference, even though the lag is still there in full force in other (just as critical) aspects of the game.

Even to this day playing from Australia it's not uncommon to have a 250-300ms ping on US/EU servers (depending on the game may be the closest English servers).
