High ping is one of the most unwanted occurrences in the gaming world. For the uninitiated, high ping occurs due to a high amount of lag in the game or network. When you are playing offline, a lag is not very much of a problem. However, when you are playing a game online, and you suffer a lag, the losses can be incomprehensible. Windows 10 OS is prone to high ping from time to time, and thus it can get very unpredictable when you are playing an online game on a Windows 10 PC/Laptop.
