Are these guys hacking?
I just played with a team who had, them all, amazing ping rates, during the whole match. Are they hacking? Because it does not seem normal for me.

I screen-captured them: http://cloud-4.steampowered.com/ugc/433775032549370761/AFB2FE287E255AFDEF0C5D134CED4C442EC2E4C5/

I'm not sure how ping numbers usually look in CS, but 40's doesn't look particulalrly amazing to me. Certainly in WoW when I used to play, I would be annoyed with a ping higher than 50.

You can't get better ping by cheating.

cl_cmdrate +500
It's called ping masking, tricking the console into thinking you are closer to the server.

Some servers may not like ping spoofing -> kicks you out of the server right away.
You won't get into trouble, because it's basic console command which is built in the game.

He's talking about the other team with crazy high ping(at least I hope, there's nothing unusual about low ping(just means they're closer to the server or better internet)) and no they're just connected to a server that's far away from their location.

Lower is better.

I thought when he called it amazing ping rates he talked about the lower pings.
but seeing the screenshot taken from the low ping team I think he means amazing in a bad way.
