I've just popped over to the oceanic server after playing on US Alsbeth for the past month or 2.
My ping is exactly the same (200ms) which raises the question, is the oceanic server not oceania based? and if so why not?
I'm a NZ player and 200ms makes a BIG impact in the end game raids, we've started GSB now and once you combine the ping with the sheer intensiveness of the graphics, its starting to show in my healing, 1.5second gcd's etc don't make for a solid healer.
So back to the original request, Shard Laethys, states it is oceanic. Is it actually based in oceania? If not, why?
And also if not, will you be creating an actual oceanic server and again if not, why?
