So for the past few days my sister has been constantly torrenting shit, makes me impossible to play tf2(or any other game really). My ping went from 60ms to 300. She doesnt care at all or takes a break

How can i make it so it doesnt affect me so much?

If you have control of your router, you can set the quality of service and give your computer all the bandwidth and throttle the shit out her computer.

Make your parents explain to her what it means to share a resource in a fair way. If that doesn't help pull the plug

If throttling her connection is not an option and she's under 18 just tell your parents that she's doing something illegal that could get her into serious trouble. Surely they'd tell her to stop immediately and maybe even take away her computer. If neither of the 2 above are valid options just punch her or do what Hildreth said.

wareyaset the bandwidth limit to like 50-80% the max then

This is the right thing to do, you can torrent and game at the same time.

Steps:
1. Do a speedtest.net
2. Set uTorrent (or whatever client) to 80% of the max speed.

So long as the torrenting isn't taking up ALL the bandwidth pings shouldn't spike.

Additionally it's usually the uploading that causes the issues.

Most connections have 10x more download than upload speed, so it's much easier to saturate the upload and affect ping.

If you can somehow get to her computer(and be able to use it when she is not looking):

Windows key+Break/Pause key-->advanced system settings --> hardware tab --> Device Manager, right click disable mouse (make sure you can get here with just your keyboard so you can undo this!)

I got that from somewhere, she'll probably panic and ask you for help and you tell her that it's probably a virus from a torrent she downloaded and not to torrent anymore, and then take her out to ice cream if she's crying and tell her you'll figure it out for her later.

Try to find actual methods to solve your problems and not this childish shit that everyone is suggesting. Look up how to do QOS on your router and try that. Are you both on wifi? I got a etherent over power adapter when I was having the same ping problems. Having a wired connection over wireless is like pseudo-QOS and will solve most of your ping problems.
Have you actually tried talking to your sister? It sounds like you've complained to her and the only solution she sees is to stop torrenting, you know that shes not going to stop downloading her shows and music because you complain once in a while. Show her how to set her torrent client to only use 80% of the total bandwidth of your house, this should solve most problems, and she should still be able to download media faster than she can watch it.
