In the meantime, we're working at optimising the connectivity from the East Coast to our servers on the West. This stuff does take time - but I promise we're constantly working in ALL of our regions on making it the best experience for everybody.

tl;dr - Stick tight Summoners! Working on it

I'd love having east coast servers if they could stay connected. Need to be able to play with friends from West Coast.

Why wasn't there just a server put in the middle? bit unfair for the eastern players since ping has an (although slight) impact on high levels of play.

Translation: East Coast servers denied. If we're lucky we MIGHT get around 80 ping instead of 100 sometime in 2017.

Any reason you don't host the servers in your St. Louis office? Seems like a simple solution that may or may not have been seriously considered yet.
