Latency is literally the amount of delay (usually measured by a ping) involved in any online activity, a very pressing issue when playing an online game. Latency is more commonly referred to by its antonym, lag.

High latency means high ping times, means more lag, which is bad. Low latency means low ping times, means less lag, which is good. Therefore, "latency" as a quantity is bad.
