To Set Max Ping or Not ? Is there a real benefit in limiting ping rate for players these days ...many of my players are in EU .. my server is in US .. if I limit I cut off much of my user base .. is this still needed today or not

I would say you need it, if a player has a huge ping then they can lag out people around them (especially if in the same vehicle) and it can affect the Arma engine itself and cause the server issues (I found that out as someone with huge ping joined server and it would then stop allowing others to join) but you don't need it set really low I think I was on about 400

just my experience though and I may be totally wrong

It's usually not needed, if you find players connecting with over 500 ping then I'd enable it and limit it to 400.
