Sure, your argument is totally true. But you have to take into consideration, that the previous migration use garena server, who are well place in the game world. But Axeso is not. So i'm so sure the community will expand.
I'm also want the community to expand, but i'm not sure if this is the right direction, specialy in LA.
Sure, that's a valid concern. I guess my response to that would be this: if Axeso is unable to provide quality servers (and therefore a quality experience), the playerbase shouldn't increase enough to justify the change. As such, this would force them to a) fix it and drive expansion as planned or b) don't fix it and face losing the license/client.
I don't think anyone has disputed S2s (legitimate) goal of wanting to expand HoNs playerbase, especially in these regions. If this change doesn't end up being the recipe for success, allow them the opportunity to course-correct as needed.
