This will completely kill PvP on the oceanic servers. It was perfect after the pre-patch, why the hell blizzard decided to randomly change it now with no mention or warning is crazy.

Blizzard are completely useless.

Hello. I just want to acknowledge that this was a deliberate step taken to prepare for PvP in the Burning Crusade Classic.

As a result, we expect to see:

  • Better PvP queue times for players on Oceanic realms.
  • Better Arena matchmaking for Oceanic players.
  • A much higher likelihood of Oceanic players being able to meaningfully compete for end-of-season rewards.

On that last point, remember that all of the realms in the Americas and Oceania are part of the same region, and Arena season rewards are region-wide. We don’t want to see Oceanic players prevented from earning rewards because they aren’t being matched up against the vast majority of the region.

How exactly is arena better with 200ms ping?

You think forcing Oceanic playerbase onto american servers on 200-300ms is in the best interest of the “Oceanic Community” ?

Have you forgotten the reason why we initially wanted oceanic servers to begin with ?

Have you asked our community what we would prefer ?

This is a lazy fix to a problem you’ve created very disappointing

Also stop changing the title of my thread that includes (LAG) because that’s what we are experiencing right now

Another one of those blatantly obvious "WE SHOULD ANNOUNCE THIS CHANGE TO THE PLAYERBASE BEFORE IT GOES LIVE" decisions that … well, “small indie company” and all that.

The real reason was that U.S. players missed reading Aussie trash talk in BG chat. lol

Try again and answer the question please. Why would players WANT to play with bad ping? Why was this change not made clear before implementation.

Any competitively minded player would rather not play at all than play against NA players with 250+ ping. Terrible change that no one asked for.
