~~~~Here is statistics showing the average ping of players in each tier. This shows how much ping makes a difference. (July 1, 2013)
http://www.elophant.com/league-of-legends/charts/tier?region=na&period=all Selecting NA and all time.. Challenger tier with an average of 21ms... yeah seems legit.

~~~~Theoretical Speeds of The Internet~ Updated:Jan 29, 2014)~

~~~All data is rounded to nearest hundredth unless approximated~~~

Earth is aprox. 24,900 miles in circumference around the Equator.

Light travels at aprox. 138,450 Miles per second.
This means that light can travel around the world 5.56(rounded) times a second. However the rule of thumb is 2/3 of that through materiel that isn't a vacuum of space. roughly 91377 Miles per second.

You could ping yourself in a circle in 272.50ms(milliseconds, rounded) and pong it back in twice that 545ms(rounded.)

New York is around 2,410 miles from California, the theoretical latency should be 26.37ms(rounded) with a pong of twice that 52.75ms(rounded.)This means that the polling constant for response should be roughly 18-19 times a second.

However, because we do not come close to these theoretical marks; the best ping we're seeing is 100+ on the east coast with few under 100 due to better lining routes. Obviously a huge factor would be that these lines are not running in a straight line across NA, bandwidth pipes, queued signals, and different materials the signals channels through. Which is why the only fix is not just a better ISP or connection, that's just a stupid comment, some people don't have a choice in what is provided in their area and will only help if they're bottle-necking their bandwidth with.. The best option would be to implement a server for players on both sides of NA to address latency issues as best as possible.

~~~~New Clarification about adding a new NA server Updated: (Jan 29, 2014)~

Since there were questions about this, my thread, is about linking the database between the two servers west and east. There will be no full split just split on players playing east and west. You can still choose west or east at the game mode screen, say you get 20 ping east and your friend on west gets 60 ping to east. However, you get 100 ping to west and your friend gets 40 ping to west you're likely to play on east for the duration of your games with each other. However if you're playing with a ranked team, if most of them get lower ping to west than east than of course you will want to play west with them so your team is less affected by latency issues. This is a really great fix in my opinion. You're not stuck on west or east in this case.

~~~~New Message to Non-NA Players(updated: June 9, 2013)~

I am aware that this is not all about other countries in the world that "Should" have servers closer to play on as well. Please be aware that I'm trying to address a NA issue, I support that Riot should put servers in Australia and other areas, however this is not what I'm posting this thread about so please try and understand that. Thanks!

~~~~~~Message to Riot~ (Updated: June 9, 2013)

Riot, players around the world benefit from the increase in servers. It is time for the millions of daily players to get their much needed support from you guys. The East coast is one of those places need your support. I know the biggest thing for most gamers is latency, a lot of friends and people I know won't play certain games because it is not enjoyable for them to play with lag. League of Legends is no exception. Those who play and have experienced high latency and low latency know just how much the game's experience changes when this aspect is brought into play. Characters that involve skill shots are extraordinarily hard to play with ping above 150+ and nearly impossible to play beyond 250. One of the biggest issues I have noticed is your characters will tend to have a mind of their own, running after enemies or standing still for a while before responding to your commands, much of which can lead to your demise. Imagine playing as a melee champ, you are sitting in a bush; all of a sudden and enemy appears in the bush with you and they hit you once then run away to a group of their ally champions. Your character's response is to chase the attacker or attack the nearest enemy target. However, you tell your character to flee as well, but because of the latency your character decides he's the smarter person and chases the enemy back to his comrades for about half a second. Now the enemy thinking to themselves, A this guy is lagging, B he is an idiot for charging in or C just a noob. A of course is the answer. Well you died, and the normal response is, "I hate this lag with a burning fiery passion I wish Riot would have servers closer to where I live." I think I've said something similar out loud more than in the game but I know I'd complained about the lag several times even recently in my last couple games.

Either way, it really would be nice if you would support the players who support your paycheck for either skins or characters to get their money's worth and get more servers. Riot, you know you'll only end up with happier players and defiantly more players than before. Lets try to set some good Guinness records here shall we?

(update: Russia, South America, Australia, and many other places now have servers, this is great since they have needed them.)


~~~~Major Problems With Lag~ (Updated: June 9, 2013)

-Ping is a latency measurement of packets from one network(or system) to another and then back.

The problems for people who are not near California and are stationed more towards the east side of NA is that we suffer latency from high latency(ping).

With experience a person can make the most of latency by pure estimate or chance, however even those who are new and unskilled know when lag caused them their miss a shot or die, an example would be casting your ult as Tryndamere knowing you hit it in time but dying cause of the time it took to send the signal to the server was much too long. Or throwing your area of effect ult, and missing because the people moved out of the line of your shot by the time your skill finally casts. There are many situations like this that hinder a players abilities and potential, where having lower latency would better show one's skill, over being practically useless.

~~~~Preview of East Coast Server performance~(updated: June 10, 2013)

-LAN Server Getting Connected - 6/10/13
-Make or Transfer a Smuf account(not your main) to Latin America North
-On the launcher change region to LAN(If it didn't change it already after transfer) Update the game
-On your computer go to \Riot Games\League of Legends\RADS\system
-Open file called locale in a txt editor program (notepad, word, etc..)
-Change it to "locale = en_us" without the "" then save to make LoL run in English
-Close the launcher, then open it back up and it will be in English.
-Enjoy testing the LAN server if you live on the east coast

My ping went from 110-120, to 46-51, a huge improvement with much more responsiveness. It's really amazing how much different the game feels.

I've played on both the west and east coasts. There was only about a 10 ping difference between California and New Jersey.

They need more Servers period, and I don't know how you could only get a 10 ping difference from CA to NJ when that's not even possible.

i played bloodline champions who's server is on the east coast. I asked numerous times for them to give west coasters less lag. I got no help. and the server still east coast.

so if you want less lag play bloodline champions. the only reason why i left that game is cause the server of this game is much closer to my home. Oh and i love this game alot more.
