It appears my post has made a few waves around Reddit etc and has raised quite a bit of speculation. To summarise:

- ~100ms to the NA servers from the East Coast is something we can improve.

- Latency buffs are coming. We're working closely with the major Internet Service Providers (not just in NA, but in all regions) to have you connecting to LoL as optimally as possible. Time moves slow in Internet land as there's a lot of moving parts involved, but the aforementioned works are already underway.

- Further improvements are being discussed, including the possibility of distributing game servers in other locations than the West Coast. < This scenario would be a huge shakeup - and though we love challenges, we want to make sure that we pick the best solution that is going to improve everyone's experience overall, and get it right the first time.

Hope this clarifies things!

Foro out.

It's always been frustrating that I play on 98 ping and am laning top vs a guy with 20 ping. That little bit of difference can go a long way believe it or not. When I was visiting a friends out in California and playing there was a whole new world! Skill shots were easier to land, that's for sure.

Some in Atlanta would help East Coast players a lot. It's bad when it's closer for me to play on the Latin American servers.

Sounds promising, Foro. I would LOVE to not deal with 100+ ping anymore. I'm even okay with a more consistent 70-80 but exceeding 110-120 gets a bit much.
