Being unable to play lol because the servers are always down in the Oceania peak time because that is when the least players overall play. It bugs me to see how we always seem to get treated the worst, when an Australian server would fix all this.

Sure it we may be at a disadvantage, but in all honesty it's not something that can't be dealt with.

First step: learn to use smartcast. Having moved from the US to Australia I never needed smartcast but it helps to slightly counter act ping issues.

Second step: Work on your play. Regardless of the ping skill takes over. I know plenty of high ELO Aussie players. 90% of the time it's not your connection, it's you.

I played a few games on the Garena SEA server. Ping varies from game to game 140-180ish. Games at 140 are an amazing difference to my NA games at 230. Last hitting is so much easier, I am able to watch minion health get much lower to prevent lane pushing. Everything is more responsive and my CS is much improved. I haven't played any characters with a fast combo yet except for Lux in a 180 ping match. This was a little better as I was able to detonate her E almost instantly.

Another aussie here. I'm on the new fibre optic network and the best ping I have gotten is 169. This looks to be the limit.
