I bring great news for our South American and Asian players. This weekend, you will have a good chance at getting "green ping". Our technical operations team has been investigating and testing some solutions that would allow better connectivity and this initiative will help us gather more information to improve lag and latency issues.
We've seen this work before and we're now just stretching its capabilities to a bigger audience. If you're in Asia or South America, share your feedback with us by posting in this thread. This will greatly aid us and speed up our efforts to make the game experience better.
Have fun, and thanks in advance!
