Every user on TMBO has it; what is it, like a ranking score or something?

It's the latency between you and the other peers in the room or at least that's how TMBO uses it, IIRC.

To get even more specific, it's the time, in milliseconds, that it takes a signal to get from you to that person's PS2 and then return again.

So if you have a 113 ping on Orion then it took 113 milliseconds for your PS2's signal to leave, get to him, and come back.
