In the old days of weak (processing power and bandwidth) web servers you could effect the response of them by running ping -t -l 6500 -w 10 domain.com and with timeslicing run multiple instances of it to add to the effect.
With the power and speed of web servers today, is this no longer true if run against a low end but new PC turned into a web server?
It all depends on the bandwidth aswell really, and DDoS is the only thing that works now, DoS like pinging someone never really worked unless you were like 1MB vs 56k or you were exploiting some flaw in the OS or TCP/IP stack (The old OOB bluescreen WinNuke).
The things I always found most effective was syn flooding and smurfing with some imaginative spoofed sources thrown in (localhost, multicast addresses, private IP ranges etc.)
You can mangle most stacks if you explore them enough
