Hi Manic, do you play over 3G or WiFi?

I play on WiFi from Melbourne and lag isn't too much of an issue unless I chose the south american, north europe or east US server.

West US is the best then South Asia followed by Europe. It will also vary with time of day a little.

revivng this thread to add my support to this idea, I can usually only join the Artois server at the best of times let alone have a choice

In theory Artois should be the fastest for you. It is in hong kong

You would think that the delay to Hong Kong would be less, but the west coast of the US is usually a lower round trip. The cables under the sea in Asia don't go direct so the latency from Sydney to HK can be as high as 350ms, where as the latency to the west coast of the US is usually around 200ms.

ok, maybe it's different here in Perth on the west coast due to distance

Perth - Hong Kong is 6,000km
Perth - Los Angeles is 15,000km

it used to be the only other server I could connect to was North Europe for some reason, but now the Asia server is the only one that works, and even that is disconnecting all the time.

I might add that I quit playing Dogfight for nearly a year because I could never log on successfully until a few months ago

yeah Perth is the difference you guys are closer to Singapore than the rest of us, so you can hub through there and up to Hong Kong. Perth is an RTT of ~100ms from Melbourne, the west coast of the US is ~200ms, and at the moment Hong Kong is 230ms.

what about south America? the server is on brazil, so maybe it is more straight line?

as for Australian server per se, I find it hard. The reason is because it is expensive to get a server if only a few people are in Australia and not many on the area subscribe. From the stats only a few players are located there.

So Zup; include NZ and the surrounding islands to those stats. Probably still not enough money around here but please check it out.

I guess a server will cost a few hundred a month, so we would need 100+ paying Antipodeans to cover the cost.
