Is download or upload speed more important when playing online games...

Sure

ETA: FWIW I have a decent download speed at around 25mbps and a horrific upload speed at 1mpbs and I have no problems playing online

So Download & Ping >>>> Upload

Might have better luck on the gaming board.

ETA: Changing the title of this thread to something better would also help.

ping is most important... how quickly you send and receive "data packets"

Ping is everything in online gaming

You don't check ping before you order internet. Any cable or DSL connection will have a good enough ping.

you can't. but if you're getting internet from any of the major cable companies, your ping should be more than adequate.

you cant test your ping until you have internet.

lets say you are playing games online. if the server is in china your ping will be high no matter what because the server is so far away. a server maybe in the next state will result in very low ping.
