A lot of the pot calling the kettle black. We see connectuon issues from people in various regions. One just isn't the issue. If we were to region lock, how would it be fair to block one region and not another?
In any video game. You're going to deal with the same. I too find it frustrating, but in quite the quagmire. People from the troubled regions are supporting the sever financially, often times more than others. It's not the reason they're allowed to play, and I have banned people who have a proven track record of connection issues. But I've seen people from the UK, Australia, South Korea, UAE all display similar connection issues. We are not in an age that we can rely solely on north American players to sustain a population on the server. I believe that if this was going to be a practice, it should have been implemented long ago.
On top of that. The ability to implement a ping kick has proven to be extremely unreliable and lasted for 10 seconds during my last attempt at its implementation. I will continue to monitor and look for potential solutions. I must advise you, it would be a swift and decisive action that ultimately will have some collateral damage. Like i said above, this is unexpected to occur. But individual action can be taken.
