Blizzard, this is NOT acceptable. It's only passable in WoW because that game gives you a stupid amount of time to react to everything (and timers pre-empt every single area hazard - a lot of it is prediction, not reaction). It is NOT acceptable and NOT passable in an ARPG like Diablo. Fix it. Add Oceanic-based servers. If you're going to charge full retail price for a game, add the kind of support that any sane person can reasonably expect from such a game. I'm already feeling ashamed that I have given money to a developer so willing to so openly shaft such a large chunk of their audience. Australia is not a niche audience or some backwater country - they must have at least a million players here, and that's being extremely conservative.
