well many reasons why the ping is the way it is...
1. if you live farther away from them the pign won't be good
2. The map could be a problem if its a made map it could make ping high
3. the server owners internet could be like terrible dial up which makes u have bad pign
so if the ping is ever 9999 then u woun't be able to join..

The 9999 ping-servers need to be portforwarded

i know that sometimes servers for example have that an 8 max but have 16 people this is sometimes because there are bots witch seem to count as players
I will be back to play soldat, just not now , but i will....... some day.

The 9999 ping can be caused by two other things that haven't been mentioned yet:
1) the server host has not forwarded the ports properly
2) YOUR ISP is blocking the small UDP packets used to ping servers after a certain number of them are sent.  This is because small UDP packets are often used as part of DDoS attacks and also port-scans, both of which are things that ISPs may or may not want to block, depending on their ToS

O.o; Maybe it's a zombie server or whatnot? I don't think it matters, though, unless you're playing in the server. Your ping prolly wouldn't be 9999 in there anyways.

I've got some of them at the end of my list too, i don't usually visit the higher pinged servers, 200~250 suits me fine.

I believe the ping is 9999 when there is no reply received when the ping-cmd is sent to the server.

In other words, ping time out, possible due to packet loss.
