Look into your laws and regulations regarding bandwidth use to find out why Riot, Blizzard and most other online gaming companies dont have a Aussie/New Zealand office.

There was a thread not long ago specifically asking any of you down under for any feedback at all relating to LoL. I cant seem to find it now though.
