    When I test for my ping online, it shows my internet is 10ms. However when I'm in game, it shows I have 500ms. I do not know what is the problem here...

    Could be no problem at all.

    I don't know how you are testing your "ping online", but the ping response is directly related to the distance from your PC to the server to which you are testing (or gaming).

    Your online test could be to a server within your ISP's network, the game server could be on the other side of the world. Ping will also be affected the server load. So if you are hitting a server on the other side of the world, during a peak time when there is a lot of traffic, it will be slow. This is why most games provide multiple servers in various regions.
