With the consolidation of all the battlegroups for battlegrounds, I'm just wondering: Was there any consideration for latency?
I live in Hawaii. Connecting to anything but a California server doubles (and in some cases, triples) my latency. My latency when connecting to a cali server is around 60-70. My latency in the battleground I'm in right now (I'm assuming a New York server) is 183. (Anyone who gets worse latency than this, please don't tell me your sob story. That's not what this is about.)
Just wondering if there is going to be any consideration for this in regards to rated battlegrounds. Playing at triple my latency, especially as a melee (and still even worse as a rogue/feral druid because of our positional attacks), is harsh. I specifically play on a Cali server to avoid these issues.
Well this explains why I was getting 300ms in some BGs.
Yeah, I'm actually surprised it isn't getting more attention. I flipped out when I first read about it.
Yeah, although it doesn't really matter. Blizzard generally doesn't care about latency concerns. Hell, the server they recommended me back in the day was a boston one. Couldn't be any more ass backwards. I had a tech support blue tell me that humans can't notice latency differences under 200ms, so my concerns weren't valid. (This was for a different problem a while ago, but it's a good indication of their mindset)
Your topic would likely garner more responses were it posted in the forum it belongs in.
The only other forum I can post this in is general. General forum is filled with so many roleplaying, off topic posts about "My character's boob jiggle wrong" and other such nonsense that this got even less views/responses.
Furthermore, because this is directly related to melee dps in pvp, I think this forum could be used to discuss it.
