Disabling or Raising Max Ping?

I use to play on my mostly Aussie clan’s servers on launch not sure how they did it. Now there is a new one up and running old guy who ran the last one is gone. How in the world can we change it so I can actually join the server? I mean I got like 220 ping which for US is a bit high for Aussies that is good when they are forced to use NA servers. so sadly I am over the default max ping, and I can’t for life of me see anything to raise it.
