S3, Any news on Australia?
 
It's been nearly 3 years and Australia, a good bite off the LoL playerbase still has to deal with 200+ latency.

It's the worst feeling in a game where moves are not instant (or even near) where reflexes can mean life or death.

I recently downloaded the Garena LoL (in Taiwan) and experienced the pings of around 100, which seemed to be too good to be true. I didn't have to wait for Ezreals Q to cast, moved in sync (nearly) with the click and most importantly, felt like the champion was a part of me.. By this, I mean that I felt in sync with the said champion I was playing, unlike the NA LoL i had been soo accustomed to. Every click was followed by a seamlessly instant action and I felt like I could dodge anything.

But I cannot play Garena LoL due to the language barrier. I cannot read or write Taiwanese (Chinese) and I have no desire to make my smurf a main, as I have too many skins (50+), runes, friends, champions and memories on the NA server.

All I ask of Riot is to give us an update on the current situation dealing with Oceania. I would gladly pay 25 bucks to transfer to the Oceanic server to play on a green dot, and so would the overwhelming majority of Oceanic players. I remember Romulus made a thread concerning the latency of Australian players but that was never elaborated on unfortunately...

Phreak, Romulus, Zileas, anyone!.

Get these aussies their own server, riot. No one should have to play on yellow ping.

I don't know why people complain about this, I play at 200 too from Australia and I find it fine. I don't know how much better it can get...

However when I reached 300 today it was terrible I'll tell you that much.

Add New Zealand in there too, 200+ ping is just as bad here as in Aus most likely even worse here.
