Yes but if you could think about it for a second, if a bunch of them had a presence on the server, friends and what not, they'd still be hard up to leave the server.

It isn't just a straight 2 dimensional solution there is a third one that most people forget about.

Great. Does that mean you will be able to get them off our servers?

I've only ever played wow and the best latency I've had via Smoothping was 290, but I often had to play with 700ish. I'm already happy with TOR as my latency is often 250-300 with no Smoothping.

It would be amazing if we had AU located servers...50 latency...omg (if htay is what they mean by 'local')

Thankyou for the great news Stephen.

If you're going to officially launch in a country you should probably figure out when the seasons are!
You'd think! I guess I'll have to ask to go on a fact-finding mission.

I'll correct. You're right, we're thinking of this from a US perspective; Q1/2 of 2012 is more accurate.

We'll have more details on the retail offering closer to launch. I've got no info on that right now.

We continue to look at all potential markets for the game - we'd love to bring the game to as many places as possible, but we don't have any official announcements on this just yet.

We are planning on actual servers located in the area. The final location is being locked down, but when we say 'local' we don't mean 'in the US but with a label'.

Would you possibly consider making some collectors editions available for our region as well?
