FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pressnews.biz (Press Release) Oct 23, 2014
-- WoW Blizzard has just announced a new Australian server infrastructure for World of Warcraft, deploying ahead of the release of Warlords of Draenor in November. The existing Oceanic servers (Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei'Thos, Khaz'goroth, Aman'Thul, Nagrand, Dath'Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak) will physically move to a new Australian data center, ensuring reduced latency for players down under. Aussie and Kiwi players currently housed on North American shards will be granted free but optional character transfers and guild master realm transfers in the two weeks leading up to Draenor; Blizzard assures Oceanic players that LFG and PvP pools and queue times won't suffer unduly as a result.
This new infrastructure will support Australia and New Zealand and should provide a significant smoother gameplay experience for player in the region.
Players currently on an Oceanic realm—Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei'Thos, Khaz'goroth, Aman'Thul, Nagrand, Dath'Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak—should automatically experience improved latency once the new game servers go live.
In other WoW news, PC Gamer has a new interview with lead encounter designer Ion Hazzikostas, in which he discusses the "obstacles" facing aging games, the dilemma of graphics upgrades, and the non-Blizzard MMOs he enjoys. When asked about subscription models across the industry, Hazzikostas reiterated that subs still make sense for WoW: "We deliver high value for the monthly subscription because it allows us to provide a steady stream of content, and we don't have any plans to move away from that any time soon."
After nearly 10 years of suffering a fluctuating 1000ms to 200ms, Blizzard has finally announced what many Australian players never thought would happen: local Australian servers for World of Warcraft (thanks Rominion!).
Yes, this is not some kind of dream and it is indeed happening. The news was announced just moments ago at Blizzard's pre-Warlords of Draenor event in Sydney, with the most simplest way possible: a slide with the words "Australian Servers."
The servers will apparently be turned on during next week's Tuesday maintenance, with free character and guild master realm transfers being offered off North American servers.
"Players currently on an Oceanic realm—Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei'Thos, Khaz'goroth, Aman'Thul, Nagrand, Dath'Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak—should automatically experience improved latency once the new game servers go live," say Blizzard. "To help those currently adventuring on North American realms, such as Blackrock and Proudmoore, optional free character and guild master realm transfers will be offered for a limited time."
"We want new and returning World of Warcraft players in Australia and New Zealand to have the best possible experience with Warlords of Draenor," said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. "We're pleased to be able to roll out local realms in time for the expansion's launch and give Aussie and Kiwi players the ability to fight the Iron Horde from their home turf."
