    Its a no go for eastern/scandinavian EU players I can tell you from experience. Most of them will have sub 200 ping.

    NY is the best possible compromise for both EU players and NA players, while still appealing more to the larget Darkfall audience: North Americans.

    I really do feel sorry for the Australians out there, but geographically there is no real way to please you guys other than opening an Oceanic server.

    And I'm sure Rawr will do his best to get you guys the best possible routing to our server :)

    Even if you look at this site: https://wondernetwork.com/pings and you put in Sydney > Chicago or Sydney > New York, you are looking at a whopping 17 ms difference. Which brings me to my earlier point, there is no real way to pleasure Oceanic players in terms of ping with either NA or EU servers alike.

    Cancel the plans guys, the 2 Australians aren't going to have good enough ping. Find a new server location or riot.

    Okey, hold up bros! The "potential" aussie players should take priority over the European players we know will play!

    Sad part is even if I managed to have amazing ping, I would still be mediocre at best at pvp.

    Guys I have some network stats I am working on.

    Sydney -> Cali is 1.4 seconds. Cali -> East Coast NA is ~1 second.

    Going to be working on an alternate path from Auzzieland -> Europe -> East Coast NA.

    I know this isn't the best but we have to go by numbers unfortunately. The number of European players exceeds the number of Australian players based on data we acquired.

    I'll keep people posted as I have more info.

    Just settle a Server in the hollow earth. I'm sure they have a place for Darkfall playerbase
