Don't worry man, and most importantly don't give up! I'd wait a long while. Give them a few months for fix their server issues first. They aren't going to give up on you Aussies yet! You all are a great part of the community that they honestly can't afford to lose.
Iíve been in contact with Keith in a few PMs to give him network feed back. Heís admitted that they always expected there would be an increase of 70ms fro APAC players 😢

There is nothing they can do to fix that... thinking it will is very naive... we could give them 3 years and it wonít get better... so saying we shouldnít give up isnít helpful... Bioware have most certainly given up on the APAC community
RIP APAC Players 😢😢😢😢💦

I believe the crowd that is actually suffering is the Pacific. They are after all, the furthest from any avaliable server.

As a west coast US player, I went from ~30-60 ms to 80-110 ms. So it's still perfectly playable.

The outrage is because we weren't informed ahead of time and it feels like a snub to west coast players and a slap in the face for Pacific players.

Like I get you need to save money and I get moving all data centers to the middle of the country costs money. But really, this feels like a snub.

I got yanked off of JC, where I was perfectly happy, and then force me to change my toons's name.
Thanks for nothing

I think you underestimate the sheer size of the US and the obstacles that must be crossed.

Imagine driving from Lisbon to Moscow or from Darwin to Victoria and back again!

Also unlike ocean crossings there are dozens of connections cross country, it is not just one run coast to coast.

This is a confession that I would like to see. Any chance you can post on here exactly what they said?
