Agreed, ping to the APAC servers is (roughly) double that to the West Coast servers. It'd be great if they moved the servers to SG instead, it's more centralised, so everyone in APAC benefits instead of only AU/NZ (pipe dream).

On Topic: Merge pls
Actually that is not far off. New York has a pop of just under 20mil, Australia's total pop is ~22mil.

Remind me again, how is that bigger than 22 and a half million. Lmao.

You are also so wrong on so many points in your post. CBF re-quoting, but if you think ping doesn't matter in PvE you are quite bad. Small example - The calibration droids on Kephess fight HM EC, they have a 1 second channel of a move that needs to be interrupted. Now, given a ping of 250 ms, this means that by the time that you see the actual bar appear, you have already missed 1 quarter of the opportunity to interrupt this. Factor in that also sending your interrupt back to the server also takes 250 ms, there is also 1 quarter of the opportunity missed.

So this leaves us with the bracket between 0.25 and 0.75. Now, also consider the average human reaction time is about 215 ms, and you are left with a VERY TINY window of opportunity to actually pull off this interrupt.

BUT DONT WORRY GUIZE, PING NOT IMPORTANT IN PVE LAWL.

Considering that wasnt even the point of my post, just stating how minor the consideration is for aus players.

As much as I don't like his trolling, he's right. 250-300ms for PvE is not acceptable

I have. But the only reason I play SWTOR is because of the APAC server ping. If I want a MMO with horrible latency I'll go back to Pandas.

Cheers.

This arguing about ping really is pointless. Some of you want to stay on the Oceanic servers. That's fine but don't expect others to feel the same. Shouting at us about ping isn't going to make us change our minds. What will is a viable population on a server. Ping doesn't mean anything if it takes 2 hours to find a group to take on that boss with a 1 second interrupt.
