No response to the outrage on the forums regarding the stupid decision to move the west coast servers to the east coast and not even have the decency to tell us in advance.

Anyone want to play the odds for when Bioware will communicate with us about this. I don’t think it will be today or tomorrow. They are probably too shell shocked from the barrage of rage.

I bet they will drop a small one or two paragraph post on Friday afternoon before they leave the office and hope it blows over by Monday 🙄

Your inability to read does not equate to bioware's inability to listen.

When the Hardware change was complete, Keith said right up front that people on the West Coast would experience some higher latency and that they would be working on that.

So he preemptively addressed all this ************, and yet people are still demanding "answers" when he already provided one.

To play devil's advocate for a moment Keith did say it would be two weeks whilst they get the teething problems (lag spikes and whatnot) sorted out from the relocation.

Of course what Keith didn't say is that they were doing it in the first place.

I imagine he's enjoying the usual drama on the forums while drinking his 10th coffee of the day, it's not like he's busy if he's got 10 toons up to 300.

But to be fair, he also didn’t tell us this was happening in advance. He owes us an explanation and communication.

They weren’t answers, lol. They were lies and propaganda.

I think it's just the vocal minority.

No, he said they would use the next two weeks to "smooth out kinks and address performance issues."

He does NOT state whether or not Bioware considers the West Coast higher pings a "performance issue." He was vague. We have no idea whether this is considered the new normal or whether it is something they are trying to fix. Hence, the ire and the requests for communication.

He has ZERO CONTROL over the hops between WC and EC, he cannot change ping.

Unless they plan on buying all the ISPs in the continental USA and route internet traffic themselves, there is nothing they can do about ping times for people who got moved unannounced.

Perhaps it is you who should read... maybe something on how the internet works... more specifically on lag time and latency.
