latency on the oceanic servers?

I'm moving to Japan and wondering what it's like to play on Frostmourne when the server's data center is actually located in the United States.

I'm thinking it probably makes more sense to play in this time zone while I'm living in Japan

Well, depending on your internet, you can usually get around 200-250ms. But that is the lowest.

Nothing like the 15-50ms you would get in the USA.

What Concordia said, probably around the 200 mark. Maybe about 150~ in Japan as it is a little closer, I can get as low as 170 on good nights here; it usually sits around 180-200 though.

I believe qconnect is/was in Japan due to military? (not 100%) he could probably give you an accurate answer. However I haven't seen him post on the forums in quite a while :/.

I was in Okinawa for a few years, my latency was usually around 250-300. Lowest I'd ever see was about 150.

To an extent, yes. It is very easily playable, and you get used to it and adapt to the delay you get. But at high levels of play such as top end raiding and high rating pvp we are at a pretty big disadvantage to Americans on sub 50 ping.

Dying to a annihalate when your body is clearly under the rest of the raid and not in the graphic, oh to be Australian...

Oceanic servers are all in on the west coast of the US so you can get some idea how of how it will play compared to other us servers from that.

As a whole we pretty much have to just play better than americans do to achieve the same level of success, it's something most of us have come to terms with at this point :\

You know it doesn't actually work like that right? Spells just get queue'd .2 seconds in advance. They only disadvantage to having higher ping is interrupts and pissing around with LoS issues.
