Ping to what ... please tell us it is not to a Public DNS that is not required to respond to any ping streams.

Test for packet loss to a Public DNS using a script of 50x :     nslookup hp.com 8.8.8.8

Ping the game server ... is that reliable & stable at responding.

I use warp+ cloud dns on iPad Pro  I tried it in london on my friends place I get constant ping no variation but here where I am is a bit shocking

32ms ping is fine for online console gaming and you won't see it much better than that with current VM broadband, due to the DOCSIS infrastructure.

32 ms is the lowest plus it fluctuates a lot the problem is it’s not constant

It won't be constant.
