Hi guys,

 

Just a quick question. I read this post but I'm wondering about the "A lower score indicates a better server" line. So servers with 5 stars are the worst and servers with 0 stars are the best? I'm just a little confused by the whole stars as a scoring concept, since it seems to me like it would be more intuitive if they did it the other way around (the more stars, the better).

 

Thanks!

Hello!

 

A lower score will translate into MORE stars. You should prefer servers with a higher amount of stars.

 

Kind regards

Hello!

 

When it comes to latency, which you see noted as "ms" for miliseconds, lower is better, because the less time it takes to communicate from A to B, the better. Thus a lower score in this metric plus some others, translates into more stars. :)

 

To my understanding at least.
