This system utilizes Dream Seeker and it's built in web browser interface to create a ping-pong system which can be viewed by the game.

By the server sending a call to a client javascript, it allows semi-accurate pings based on individual's internet speed.

Version 2: Rewrote Javascript to utilize built in Date() instance, allowing for ping to be returned in milliseconds. Created a list for players so the Average Ping verb will not cycle through all mobs in world. Cleaned up a lot of the script and organized it better. Also made ping calls client side to detect server spikes.
