Default Blizzard confirms. SC2 AUS/NZ players will be put with Asia and not NA

Quote:
'Blizzard Entertainment also announced today that both the standard edition and Collector's Edition of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty will give players from Australia and New Zealand access to play on servers based in Southeast Asia, alongside gamers from Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. This local datacenter will offer players in the region improved latency for a high-quality gameplay and connectivity experience.'
Considering the beta is not restricted...i don't understand why they would restrict it. The ping isn't bad at all, and third party connections like smoothping/battleping/etc will be pointless for SC2.

So we get thrown in with all the worlds most uber starcraft players? Harsh

Exactly. Others would kill for the opportunity to play against them, but the language barrier is not good.

What's worse is the fact that our ping from AUS will be worse to Asia than US :/

it would add authenticity to playing against an alien race

and isn't it just Koreans who are uber starcraft players? South East Asia is a long way from Korea.

Aisan players are retarded good. It's kind of sad actually. The only thing they have to do with their lives is get better at video games.

All 2-3 billion Asians?

I'm not usually one to care about racial stereotyping but this is a bit extreme. Firstly you can't spell Asian, and secondly, have you ever met an "Asian" or have you just seen them on TV?

dude, Korea is in the far north of Asia, not South East Asia, which is the region that Australia resides in. Korea is closer to eastern europe than Australia
