If you mean ping, as in the command-line tool in Windows and *nix, it's because most of our servers don't respond to ICMP ECHO requests.

It's not a big deal.

Ultimate: You can't play CTF without the full version anyway.

If you go to the command line and type:

[code:1:53d992f640]ping ldagames.com[/code:1:53d992f640]

that uses a protocol called ICMP Echo , and on our servers, it doesn't return anything. That doesn't actually mean the server is unreachable, though.
