Low US latency

Oceanic General Discussion
Hi there,

I'm Australian, and i play on a US server (guess we all do) and i do PVP, and we all know pvp can be frustrating at some times with high latency.

So I'm wondering how can i force my 180ms to go lower. I herd of smoothping, Leatrix(running) etc etc but they don't really take a big chunk out of the latency only like 10~20 ms lol. Anyone?

There's nothing u can really do to drop it more than u already have. 180ms is pretty good for us aussies. In order to get a general understanding of how ms works and is measured, think of it in terms of distance between australia and where the servers are located in the US. It's a big distance, which means ms will rise the further u are away from the servers. The only way to lower ur ms further than it already has is to get closer to the server.
180ms is as about as good as you'll get. You cannot remove the physicality of the server location and your distance from it - it's just a fact of life with this game.
180ms, I wish :(

12,000 km Sydney to LA = 0.12 sec at the speed of light. Add in switching times and 0.18 secs is kind of impressive.

You Aussies should find some rich dude and see if he can buy a piece of Blizzard and put a server there.

Vivendi still own 51% of the stock.

Who owns the rest of it?
Turning interleaving off.
Tunneling Service may Help.
You think 180ms is high? -__-

I've never been below 220ms! >:(
I'm getting a steady 130-150 MS Now for the past 3 weeks. I STILL WANT TO GO LOWER! :|
