I know the servers are the same for Oceanic and Asia players and from what I've gathered they are based closer to Australia then Asia, I'm playing from Australia and I'll tell you the amount of people with poor connection I play against is appauling and if it persists I don't see my friends I play with sticking around too long as laggy players though may not have the advantage, anything you do to them is the subject of lag compensation and i've had a few instance of times I died then came back to life for a moment only to die again to a the Gizmo shooting me frim Asia which can't be a good sign.
I wrote this mainly to ask the question as to how are the servers managed? Are they in Sydney or north Queensland? Are they split between a few locations? Is the possibility of splitting the region on the table? Maybe adhest matchmaking to not be so worried about making a lobby in 1 min and give more time for players to form better ping balanced lobbies (I can assure you Aussies are no stranger to 10 min+ queues)
