A fast ping means a more responsive connection, especially in games like Tanki where timing is everything. Ping is the time (in milliseconds) it takes for the information your computer sends to reach the game servers.

PING is the measurement how fast the internet is; the lower PING, the better the connection.
Hopefully this isn't too confusing, but basically, when you "ping" something you're sending a small message to it then back. The ping you see on Tanki is the time in milliseconds (I think) for the message to be sent both ways. As already said, the lower the ping the better. Some maps may normally have bigger ping than others and I think this might be because of servers of some maps are located in different places (globally), so some maps might automatically have a bad connection.
