The Term "Slow Loader" and Its Effects

      But your suggestion literally makings ping less homogeneous lol. Right now servers are in NA and both SA and Europe are "one hop" from NA. You'd move it so it's in Europe, NA is "one hop", and SA becomes "two hop".

      There's no logic or metric where this would improve the overall experience of the player base. It would exclusively help EU and hurt everyone else. Thankfully it will never happen.
      making average player latency homogenous increases the average player happiness by making fair competition.

      you speak like SA has half the player population. do you have any statistical proof to that?

      can we learn where u live btw?

      I live in the US, but I'm not arguing for NA. Even though NA has more players than EU, swapping servers to EU would be a fair trade for those two regions only. It would just swap which has good ping, and which has okay ping.

      But those aren't the only two regions. Since going to Europe would hurt every other region. it's clear this idea is pure bias. EU has second best ping, and you want to hurt every other region to make EU ping the best? Crazy. Sorry that North africa and the middle east don't have large player-bases, because than EU servers would make sense.

      NA is the most central of all the regions, as well as having the most server infrastructure in the first place. Your ping isn't even that bad. When servers were being DDOSed US had 150-200 ping as well and it was not a big deal at all.

      you are just telling numbers. where is your proof?

      no one told you that it was a very big deal at "all." if i was the decision maker i said i d put it in the uk, that s all.

      read my starting msg. it only asks to equalize zone changing durations.

      you keep telling the same story. hurting the other regions doesnt mean anything if the average ping latency for all people is homogenic enough.

      you think the majority of the players are from the america and you speak accordingly. but what you believe is wrong. period.
    • I am from SA and I play with 170-210 ping.
      As soon as I got a GOOD SSD for my computer my time to load maps decreased substantially.
      I usually load before or at least at the same time as anyone else.
      Also, even if you did not, it doesn't change much: escaping gankers in this game is not about who loads faster.

      sharing wifi is your own problem. you can fix it with acceptable money.
      playing on laptop is again your own problem. you can fix it with acceptable money.
      alienware is again your own problem. you can fix it with acceptable money.

      only your geographic location is one thing you can not fix. you cant fix it with acceptable money.

      so stop putting it next to your other fixable options.
