I was wondering if there is an Oceania server in the making? If not what is the best server recommended for Australian players??

I've been playing a lot of game with Aussies lately, I come from Frostmourne so most my friends are Australian. They dont seem to have any lag with just the servers as they are. I never rly hear them rage about lag or anything, just about missed kills or failed chases.

from my experiance this game has NO lag problems from europe, to china, to the US, to austraila.
There will be no need for multibe servers.

Is there a way to even pick your server?

+1 for Oceanic server.

I've been having problems with my 300 ping.

Example:
Playing Singe I was standing just at tower range waiting for Jax to jump me so I could toss him backwards.
Every time he jumped me despite me having my finger on the toss key (and clicking mid jump), he was able to jump and run, leaving my Singe to chase after him.

I mostly play range now though as my ping it is less of a problem with ranged characters.

I had asked Mark Franz about this in the last dev chat on IRC. His response was:

Quote:
Teirdome: Any chance you'll reveal where the server farms are going to be located at release? I need to know where to move to get my ping down. More seriously, what types of efforts has Riot taken to reduce player latency?
Mark Franz: If you’ve been experiencing latency in the beta so far, we’d love to talk to you and hear about it. Our plans for the U.S. right now are to have servers primarily on the west coast. We’ve done a lot of testing to ensure that players have a good experience when connecting to our servers and the response has been positive so far. Besides just reducing player latency, we also spent a lot of time reducing the impact that latency has on players.


I personally only have latency problems when Comcast fiddles with their network causing packet loss. Otherwise I'm a stead 50 ping. There's also some great latency merging code from what I've seen.

Aye for servers closer to Australia! The commands are not as responsive over here (at least, I don't think they are).
