Australian/New Zealand servers

Post by cepris » Mon Jan 24, 2011 8:58 am

It's pretty well know that Australians and New Zealanders get major lag on most servers. It's unfair on the other players, because it gives the laggers an advantage, and it's unfair on the laggers because there is near to nowhere to play.

I'd like to dedicate this thread to my fellow Aussies/NZers. Here I would like people to post up good servers that don't lag for us. If there is anybody willing to host a server especially for us, leave a message below.

A simple list server search yields some answers:

Got bored after seeing this post and made this:

Currently doesn't auto update, but I'll throw the update script into a cron later once I'm sure it works right.

I don't offer a list with country names but in case the you can identify the flags...

(You can get the country names via tool-tip when you move the mouse over the flags. My GeoIP source is MaxMind too.)
