I'm really excited about this just want to know how they work before jumping ship. I'll be looking for a good raid home for WoD might pay to start trying to form something with people moving off my realm I guess!

I wonder how PVP etc., will be done?
Quote:
The servers will be hosted on the same hardware that powers the Australian Diablo 3 and Heroes of the Storm servers, which means iiNet customers get faster-than-normal access thanks to the peering arrangement we worked out, just for you.

Next Tuesday there will be an extended period of maintenance. When the servers come back online, you’ll find the Oceanic servers you were playing on are now entirely relocated to Sydney, Australia, and you can enjoy your beautiful new low ping.

Character transfers to the new ANZ servers will be free.

I would expect US servers to get the benefit of the doubt in that one and any Aus match ups will be hosted locally.

I'm looking forward to this. I've been playing with 200+ for so long I won't know what to do with myself!

So they are moving all the servers and we don't have to do anything and can still play with US ppl, cool. Thats a lot of blue text

"Please note that due to its high player population, Frostmourne will not be an eligible transfer destination. Players currently on Frostmourne will be able to initiate optional, free character transfers to other Oceanic realms at no cost if they wish to relocate."

this would have been awesome 10 years ago. now, not so much - the game has progressed to the point where 180-200ms latency doesnt really make or break it.

however, there are times where boss mechanics might improve.

obviously im discounting pvp - this will only improve in world pvp really, as you will still use the US servers for bgs etc.
