  • High ping player epidemic on Australian servers

    Every night I play games are always at least half full of players with 300-400+ ping who clearly are from the other side of the world. Now I'm totally fine with being able to play with high ping if you choose, but this is a little bit much. I don't think these people even know that they have high ping or what server they are being placed in. I would really like to see the regions you can queue for at a time limited more to 2 or 3 or something, because this makes playing on AU servers very unfun, and our ping is high to just about all other servers so we don't really have any other option.

        Are you implying that there's no server for these players to play on? Because I'm sure there's somewhere they can go where they get better than 400 ping.
