I wonder how the ping will (negatively) change. Please write new ping values in the comments below.

With this move, we’ll now be handling all connections in a location that services the region equally.
What does this mean for me?
In truth – not much. One tiny difference is that your server choices will now be displayed as either Hong Kong or Australia, instead of the former being Singapore.
Aside from that:
- Hong Kong shares the same timezone as Singapore, so no impact on timed events (e.g. Global Map).
- Depending on your location and ISP, latency may become slightly higher. With that said,
- The Australia server is still available should you wish to connect to a server nearer to your location.
- Lesser chance of cables getting bitten by pesky sharks (we hope).
Sounds interesting. Maybe I should try it out…
Good idea! Our first Mid-Week Skillful Play Bonus missions are still available, so it’s a perfect chance for you to grab those rewards while testing your new connection.
Also, keep an eye on the portal this Friday – we’re serving up something special that’s sure to make your weekend better.
