Dear Players,

Due to some players from other battleservers using Oceania battleservers as a venue for farming battles thanks to the lower population there, we will be shutting them down during downtime on Monday, 28th of July 2014. Any players in the Oceania region will be directed to either the Asia battleservers or the US battleservers, depending on their individual ISP routing. Oceania players should expect a slight increase in latency when playing on either of these battleservers, yet hopefully more and varied opponents will balance that out in the overall gameplay experience.

Thank you for your understanding,
-DUST 514 Development Team

Sorry to see that happening and hopefully players on them will still be able to play without it affecting experience (in terms of latency).

Yep. Makes sense. And paying for battleservers is expensive as far as I heard anyway.

If I have to put up with **** loads of bad latency from those other servers dont expect me to continue playing.

Better use the lost resources on making them better.

This sucks

It's not just the boosting players. It's also the decreasing player count. We used to be able to get good battles on the oceanic server once upon a time. The oceanic server would also randomly disappear sometimes too.

Does this mean when legion happens that there will be no oceanic server?

Don't forget the aussies. We get shafted all the bloody time when it comes to server location.

Everyone is just going to use the equipment spam crap..... that's more important to fix.

Playing on other countries is bad enough but dealing with both pfft.

Priorities are always mixed up in ccp.

And once again, another game company ditches the Australian Market.

Yes, I know we can still play on other servers, still buy stuff, but seriously, when it comes to DUST 514, the latency is keenly felt. Other games are playable on other servers fairly well, but when it comes to DUST, one of the few saving graces was we had our own servers where we'd get 20-40ms latency at most.

Stopping the farming itself would have been a better option that shutting down the servers. Low population could be handled if you gave those of us here trying to promote DUST / Legion a leg to stand on.

I have been in contact with the CCP Community Team several times over the last months trying to drum up support for EVE Down Under, as well as pitching this entire New Eden universe to the Australian Public, and have gotten nothing in return.

people have been doing this bs for over a year it would seem too little to late but oh well now just shorten the red lines a bit and non playing players may have to do something

When it comes down to it, it saves them money. Some people using it to boost kills is just a scape goat. Seems kinda obvious.

Actually a server with a thriving population would make them money. But no. It's much easier for CCP to blame players for the shut down rather than acknowledging that bugs, the botched announcement at fanfest, and general decline in numbers due to lack of marketing and delivering on promises.

It's bloody rude for CCP to blame players for this. Thanks for yet another middle finger CCP .
