So what exactly do the bars represent? The answer is not as obvious as it seems.
I am from Aus and joining US boats gives me 1-2 blue bars and unless the host is a potato and everyone lags, I generally get no lag at all. I can do the hooks in Abomination just fine, and I can even do Neam without any deaths fairly consistently; 2 deaths in the last 12 runs.
However, I know a few Aus hosts who give me 4-5 blue bars but lags (rubber banding type) even if it's a duo run.
And I also have experienced a few runs where the whole party was on 1 red bar the entire time but didn't lag at all.
So from what I experience, lag does not always correlate to bars, hence bars is not ping and color is not latency, so what do they actually represent?
And in case it matters, my graphics settings is on custom; model, shader, lighting and texture are high; shadow, animation, physics, particles are low; streaming, multicore enabled; the rest disabled.

Yes, I never lag if I have 5 bars and lag always increases as bars decrease. 47% (7 votes)
