I'm in Australia and I play on NA East even though its and extra 30-50ms ping over West because the MM does not work that well with only 3k users. 250ms ping is fine btw.
GeneralDirection: For sure. The idea behind opening a new server would be to grow the playerbase significantly. While fixing ping for existing players is important, we can't do that without a certain threshold on the server (otherwise queue times are awful). We're going to approach it with a very aggressive growth strategy in mind if we can make it happen. That's the main reason it has taken this long for a solution, though: on one hand you have latency, on the other hand you have gameplay experience. It's kind of like the chicken or the egg... which comes first? Not an easy nut to crack, but we're trying to figure it out.
