As promised last week, the long-awaited Oceanic servers for Blizzard's mega MMO World of Warcraft are now online after an extended maintenance period.
After waiting nearly 10 years since the game's launch, Australian and New Zealand players now have access to low-ping servers in the Oceanic labelled World of Warcraft realms. Current ping readouts are ranging from 18ms through to 80ms, far below the typical 400 and beyond we were use to seeing.
"Players currently on an Oceanic realm—Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei’Thos, Khaz’goroth, Aman’Thul, Nagrand, Dath’Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak—should automatically experience improved latency once the new game servers go live,” say Blizzard. “To help those currently adventuring on North American realms, such as Blackrock and Proudmoore, optional free character and guild master realm transfers will be offered for a limited time."
