Oceania servers?(1)Category: Australia & NZ GeneralNovember-8-2012 1:58 AM PST (9 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Will we ever see servers situated more towards Australia and New Zealand? To be honest 200 ping just doesn't cut it for D3, especially when you're a CMWW wizard like me.

The latest CC changes have made it so that the 200ms latency reduces the time I have to reset my freeze's cooldown by half, making my job harder than it should be.

I'm not saying that the game is unplayable though. It would just be nice to have that little latency advantage that Americans and Europeans have.

It is possible for Blizzard to implement a service like Battleping or Smoothping? The cost for this shouldn't be much at all. Or even implement it as part of the D3 client.
This is something I will relay back. Usually we would never recommend a third party service within a product though. Oceania servers are not off the table, but it also isn't a quick fix. Will know more details early next year.

The straight up answer is that we are still going through tech details to see if this is viable. We have made changes to improve latency that from the feedback we have had on this forum has helped for some. When I have a update I'll be posting it here for sure.
