Will Asia and or China have servers at launch? Holding off on preorder until its confirmed.
@MiniHammer Please check out this thread where Specter and others explain the whole server situation.
You can also find additional info on how SpacialOS works.
TL;DR: there is only 1 server that's technically a cloud of servers processing different parts of the world with seemless stitching. No info on how bad the ping will be in Asia but I believe that the servers are lockated somewhere in Europe, don't quote me on that though.
Hi @MiniHammer, currently we only have one world, hosted in US East. Later on, we might add an EU server if population becomes too large, otherwise we'll stick to a single server for US+EU.
Other markets are a different story. Latency from Asia/Oceania to EU/US is too high, so once we hit Asian markets (likely at full launch, as you mentioned) we'll surely have a world hosted in China. See this blog post for more info
so no EU server, i wont be playing then. not gonna play a pvp game with 100+ping!
@PaulMacabre Should copy and paste this to as many threads as you can. Oh wait...
