[Idea] Regional Servers with No Transfer In or Out

So, if profit is a concern for TQ in making a regional server for Australia/Asia/Oceania. Why not make non-transferable regional servers?

Whoever wants to join would have to start from scratch, which would essentially mean a bulk fest. Which = Profit $$ for TQ. Sure, we may cry, but at least our ping won't be **** anymore.

Pl0x forward Rxin.

Hi, we have such a server Columbus, a north America regional server, but its status is not so satisfactory. That's a major reason we don't make new regional servers.

You have such a server for one region, that is not vastly different to your other servers. Asian, Australian and other Oceanic players have no server to go to that provides good ping. Look at the success of your EU servers, Champions EU is packed with bulkers! Storm EU is one of the most item dense servers! You provided a group of players with a server they needed, a European server!

You have a whole community in Oceania that you have been ignoring since the conception of this game, most of us have quit or semi-retired from the game because we cannot play competitively due to our ping. If you create a server for us, you can bring those players back.

The NA server is not a good example of a regional server or the idea I'm stating, I'm suggesting a fresh server, no transfer in's or out's.

This guy is actually right, you guys hurt yourself years ago not doing this when there was more Aussie players.
I know more from Australia that play co then the US for sure, and Australia has really crappy net, like from what I have seen its just as bad if not worse in some places as the net in egypt, which I don't understand because Australia is an amazing country

Australians the ones I know are loaded too, milk them for some money with some oceanic servers. There is more people out there then Europeans!!

Honestly this is just another example of failure by TQ. When I played Aion (pretty religiously, like 8 hours a day every day) I had the choice between a West Coast server, an East Coast server, or a central Server, I went with Central because even though I was East all my friends were Central and I was willing to deal with a bit of ping issues to play with friends.

But Aion also has other regions around the world, they have individual servers for every major country and regional area. Aion is only one of hundreds (if not thousands) of games that do this too. You can steal their wings why can't you steal their server framework?

Personally I do not see someone wanting to start over on a regional server where things will be very limited. It is not very hard to use a vpn to get in to a region locked server to be honest.

well i dont think he's saying to lock it like they did columbus...i think hes just saying have a server based in the oceania region...because there are a large number of australians, new zealanders and a huge amount of asians that would prefer playing in a more local server

asking for regional servers might be too much to handle for u guys... why dun u guys just give us back US West Coast server so we could get at least lower ping under 300.. dat would be great

Doesn't need to be region locked, none of us care if other play on it. We just want low ping. The suggestion is for regional, non-locked, non-transferable servers. The whole starting over thing, I get, for some players would turn them away. But, I think it is the most profitable model for TQ. I don't personally care how much I spend on the game, since money is not really an issue for me. Just the ping makes the game unbearable.

It's not about the lock, it's about the lower ping and the ability to have a community that for the most part speaks the same language. Also they could just make regional and international servers, and give existing players a choice as to whether they want to go to the regional one or stay on an international server.

Umm... All of the non-EU servers are west coast. You can even check by pinging your CO client lmao.

Used to play with decent ping, 190-250 and right now strugglin with 300+ ping LOL

If you're halfway around the world (seems to be if you have 190+ ping) then them moving the servers from one part of California to another part of California isn't going to impact your ping, your network either got worse, or the servers got worse, I would not be at all surprised if it was #2. My ping is 49... until I start moving then it idles at 150 minimum.

Weird that there is a big difference in the US.. since egy players seem to get 20-70 ping in eu servers lol
