Also, I like the fact you say add a server for them while not realizing that would cost money to do so. Why would they? I mean, look at all the Malaysia and Thailand in the game. The have their own version of S4 (The SEA S4), hell, I'm from NA, I still play on England cause that is the place I find the most skilled players at, while still being able to understand most of the conversations.
♫:I see very few of the Malaysia and Thailand in SO, I think they are here to escape the limited ammo, j/s.
I see tons of MY in SO. Not sure if your last line was a joke or not by that ♫ <--- But yeah.. It's MY/PH/EG that there is a lot of.
And although there is an S4_SEA, it's only in post-production. It's not out yet. As shown above @ http://www.playfps.com/en/index.html
It's not racist to make remarks about other types of people. It's stereotypical though. And there is another word that is in the back of my mind at the moment. Racist refers to hatred toward a specific race. Making remarks about a race doesn't mean you're being racist or are racist. People really need to get that crap straight.
By the way, people "Far Far Away" live in Far Far Away land. It's a mythological fairytale place from the movie Shrek. So being hateful, spiteful or stereotypical about those people is okay since they don't really exist =P
And one more thing.. you claim you go to the EU server for the more skilled while being NA. Do you know why most of us go to EU when we are from NA? Because the lag is still noticeable in our fake server that doesn't REALLY exist. Since the net-code ties us back to alaplaya HQ regardless. Making our server more of a traffic designation than a latency reduction. If we all truly found minimal lag in NA we would be there with no hesitation. NA players give a hell of a lot more heightened skill level than the rest of the world. The only reason other countries tend to look like they are skilled is because the majority of NA runs on old ass D2 modems that are literally 10-50 times slower than the rest of the world's internet modems. EuroD2 modems run 10 times faster than american D2 modems. And in a game based on getting those tiny packets around quickly, EuroD2 > AmericanD2 modems. Not to mention more of Europe is on D3 modems which are next generation and can carry 300-900 theoretical Mbps. And any D3 modem > D2. We have D3 in our country but it's only in certain places and certain ISPs. Still the majority of US is on D2.
US is the place where the world brings their game conventions and professional world tourneys. There's a reason for that.
Not to mention, this game seems to ironically work best with the poorest connections and the best connections. While the majority of the whole world is inbetween all of that. This net-code was stupid as hell to be put in place. As the ones who pay for decent internet should be the ones who experience minimal lag. Not the other way around.
