Changing servers allows you play elsewhere if anyone just wants to play. Might be a bit more laggy depending on your connection though.

That is correct, though I often don’t recommend it as latency does increase to as much as 200 milliseconds.

Thanks for the speedy response. Happy (bug) hunting!

As someone who will sometimes have their internet randomly spike to 200ms, and sometimes as high as 350ms, take this as your warning not to do that. At anything above 150ms I stay out of comp, it’s not worth it.

At this time we’re recovering, hopefully everyone is back online now! Sorry again for the hassle and I hope everyone has a great weekend. Cheers!


Praise the nerd!

It is, it only affected the North America infrastructure.
