I'd like to point out that the demand for Australian servers have hushed over the past couple of months, and I'd like to say the Australian HoN community is damn tired of 300+ ping..
It makes it very hard to play on a competitive level with all this lag, I have asked s2 so many times about if their is even TALK on Australian servers with no reply.
s2 I want a answer it's a very simple yes or no answer.
Do we see Australian servers coming sometime in the near future?
Lets just say the next patch isn't only bringing a free to play hero pool .
I agree from a fellow Australians point of view, however I'm fairly sure that the issue isn't entirely s2's fault. Server costs in Australia are stupidly high (even blizzard don't have servers dedicated in Australia). However we do have some servers except they are in public only which is a bit annoying.
Another thing to note is Garena HoN, I have just started using it. There is a bit of a language barrier however the ping is around 150 - 200 for MM, which isn't so bad and the Q times are much much much shorter, especially for competitive.
Edit: I hadn't seen Dawnbringers post before I posted mine, but seriously, you better not have gotten my hopes up...

If Aussies get their own MM server I'm going to bone S2 so hard they won't be able to sit down for weeks.
Well this is... ironic.

Oh sweet bebe jesus! I had an inkling after reading Dawnbringer's post in my thread but now it's all but confirmed in my mind. Better not be let down here!
Despite what they would have you believe, HoN forum-goers are indeed just a vocal minority, <1700 mmr and more susceptible to confirmation bias than most normal human beings...
