Blizzard has been telling Oceanic players, from the very beginning, that it is not economically feasible to host local servers. This has been said eleventy billion times. There arent enough Players (including all of Oceania) to make it worth the investment of a new building and infrastructure in Oceania.Blizzard offered the current setup and this was overwhelmingly voted for by Oceanic players. Let me repeat that for the A.D.D affected Oceanians in the crowd... you CHOSE the current system. You voted for it, you voiced your support for it, you asked for it to be implemented. Now you have exactly what was offered and ratified by the Oceanic majority.Don't believe it? Go look it up in the Blue post archive.Stop whining about local servers which you chose not to wait for, and realize that current lag problems have been acknowleged by BVlizz and they are working on it.

Um... What was their choice if the alternative of local servers wasn't going to happen? Any vote is only meaningful if you have 2 viable alterntives. If it's 'play on west coast servers set to oceanic time or don't play at all' those are NOT meaningful choices.

It is entirely feasible - Sony are hosting Pirates of the Burning Sea realms in Australia in partnership with BigPond.

A lot of us on Oceanic servers weren't even subscribers yet when this was decided by what was then a minority.Still, though I feel that Blizzard is doing what they can (and would rather wait and see) I feel it is about time that we have our own local servers. I'm quite sure there are enough of us now to make it financially feasible.
