So does this guy still work here or what?.

I imagine he's retired to look after his grandkids and play golf by now. Chances are I'm going to be retired myself by the time we hear anything on this issue. I hope my nursing home has decent wifi.

there is one major problem with having an oceanic based server, yeah you may get low ping, but there will also be an even lower population, think about how many aussies (like myself) who would rather deal with the high ping but be able to not wait ages for a game to be found!, this is the same thing that killed Australian based servers of SW:TOR, yeah lat is great but hardly ever anyone on due to 1: odd work hours, 2:the sparse population (compared to how condensed america's population is!), so they had to reconsolidate all their servers into HI POP servers but even still hardly any Australians want to wait 10 to 20 mins to get a FP group.

surely RIOT is smart enough to see that for Australia's population size, it is currently unwise to put a server base here, and also, what American in their right mind would want to go play on an Australian server.

now don't get me wrong but i am stating fact here, as a fellow Aussie (Far North QLD) i suffer anywhere from 300ms to 600ms lag, yet in playing non-ranked pvp, i have no issues sealing the deal and making my Gentleman Cho'Gath go "Nom Nom Nom Nomm!" on someone with 35ms lat! i just have to click a fraction of a second before i want to kill someone, its that simple!

well if you know what your doing then press it a fraction before the card you want comes up and you won't have that problem, eg when i go to charge someone on Vi, i aim a bit ahead to compensate for my lagg, its that easy, don't be lazy, use your head!

No. This is the whole reason why we want a server and why these threads exist. We don't want to have to deal with this problem. It's an unfair disadvantage and it just makes some matches not fun to play. Not to mention the disgustingly erratic and extreme ping spikes.

!

The longest wait I've had on DOTA2's Australian server is like 3 and half minutes, and that was at 3:30am.

I'm not sure what LoL's Oceanic player base really is, but I'll be willing to bet it's a damn site larger than DOTA2's. The numbers are there, maybe not for every single game mode, but as long as there are enough for SR and ARAM I'd be more than happy.

Bump for Riot response.

Last nights ping was well over 200. Had the old "character doesn't move for a few seconds then runs at super speed around the map" issue quite a lot.
