Would anyone else find it handy to be able to see their in game Ping BEFORE dropping into a match?

Just dropped and had a good game, changed ships in port and dropped again, Ping was at 500-600 for no apparent reason, game went swimmingly well :), not. 

If I could see it was bad in port I would do a restart and check it, then log for the night if its my end, having this in the top corner of the port screen would benefit everyone wouldn't it? Any chance others would find this handy? To sensible maybe? :)

Follow this guide and download Pingplotter (it's free): https://eu.wargaming.net/support/kb/articles/50

But set the destination to "login1.worldofwarships.jp" without quotes. PL% indicates the lag on the route e.g. blinking ping.

You can use command prompt then enter: "ping -t login1.worldofwarships.jp" without quotes. What's missing though is the PL% indicator.

Have you looked into WTFast to help with your ping? I used it while i was playing Warcraft and it helped a bunch. Maybe it will straighten out your latency a little. It has a free trial, so it doesn't hurt to try.

Another thing don't forget local storm activity. Twice in the last week I have had some small spikes during an electrical storm.

In port ping display would be good so you know what the connection is like.Especially with the connection to the ASIA server from Australia playing up regularly depending on your ISP ( looks sideways at Telstra!).

I'll have to remember it next time one of their email surveys comes around.

Agreed. i had a catastrophic battle of up to 1k ping suddenly as i pushed the button. Would of avoided ruining the battle for others if i knew it was gonna be bad for me.
