Theres no point having an australian server because the community would be quite small plus the skill level would be evidently alot lower meaning even longer q times for higher elo players, ie how many australians are plat and higher ? if you can count them thats a problem. Sure our ping issues would be resolved but i'd rather play against a larger base of players, shorter q times and slighty worse ping.

~180 average ping

~1520 elo

I main Anivia.

I'm pretty ****ing sure that the main reason i'm not higher than my current elo is because of my CS. And that's partly because of ping. And Anivia's ****ty last hitting animation.

The ping is fine I suppose, just a slight disadvantage. It's the spikes. The queue timer would be significantly longer, but to play the game you like at 30-40 ping without any dramas, still being able to play locally with your friends etc. It will take some time, seeing as we aren't in numbers like America. But, in no time soon we'll have a great gaming environment.

our internet options suck so hard compared to the rest of the 1st world countries.
pay $50/month, get 213 ping
pay $150/month, get 213 ping
/boggle
plus our government, for some unknown reason, kokkblocks gaming companies setting up servers over here? Or tries to milk them for money to the point they just pull out.

Maybe if Riot set up a server in southern asia somewhere that we could connect too? Covers the australasian area?

Though If you ever played iRO, you'd remember the utterly terrible lag all the time. Dunno if that was just that game, or whatnot

At lest League Of Legends wasn't rated as an AO game, therefore would be banned from Australia. (Or watered down in l4d's case)

It would be nice, but we just don't have the numbers, plain and simple.

i can do the ali headbutt pulv combo 95% of the time, so i don't really see why an au/nz server would be necessary. sure if we had one it'd, be better, but playing on 210 ping is fine for me.

It's work in progress, if they see it now. The community of Australian players, could grow.
