We would like to collect some connection data from players in Oceania (mainly Australia and New Zealand). If you live in the region, could you please provide the following info:

Where you are playing from ? city level detail preferred, e.g. Sydney Australia
Your usual ping from this location
The best ping you've experienced from this location (any specific reasons for it, if you know)
The worst ping you've experienced from this location (any specific reasons for it, if you know)

Your input is much appreciated!

Shouldn't you... uh... be able to get this info yourselves from IP addresses? For example, my IP address can pinpoint what major city I live next to. As for the latency I'm sure you can get that yourselves as well.

Just curious.

Where you are playing from? New Zealand Christchurch.
Your usual ping from this location: 200 something.
The best ping you've experienced from this location 170 something (probably because not much people online or my internet got faster xD
The worst ping you've experienced from this location: OVER 9000 (Major lag then got dc'ed)

Possible, but we also like to understand things from the player perspective. So, for instance, if our ping data is off for Australia, we wouldn't know until we asked the players themselves.
