This has probably been talked about, but just to make sure...

Do you think that host has too much advantage over the client?

For example,
When I join a game, I get hit when someone swings their saber no place near me...and when i directly hit him, he doesn't get damage...and the pings look fine...all below 100...

Does that happen to you too?

Wouldn't the server host have zero ping, or very near? So, yes they would have an advantage. Though if you are an LPB yourself this wouldn't be insurmountable...

First off, dedicated servers' hosts cannot play on them. Are you playing on the Zone with non-dedicated hosts? Well, that's a problem. Zone play sucks.

Pretty much anything below 120 I dont think anyone really has that much of an advantage. I was playing on my own server a lil while ago. I am on the same LAN with anywhere from 2 to 20 ping but everyone was saying that their lag was unseeable, they had no problems with hits connecting wrong. I had one guy that was in the UK with a 300 ping on dial(must be really nice dial considering I am in the mid west US) he said it was great.
