Dtoid reader Dont Taze Me Bro reached out to me recently to bring to attention the current situation regarding Titanfall's performance for users trying to play in Australia. As it turns out, those that have been playing in the beta have discovered that they are connecting to servers based in East Asia or South East Asia, as there are no local servers at present.

"As someone who lives on the East Coast (Sydney) that means 135 - 170 ms [ping]," Donttazemebro told me. "Not ideal, but still playable ... We're used to being screwed over my MMOs, but a fast action paced shooter is a different matter. A higher latency does matter."

Respawn community manager Abbie Heppe was asked direct by another Australian-based player, and she stated that Microsoft "is building servers there now." Multiple threads have been started regarding the issue in Respawn's forums, and this specific thread has been created to consolidate everything regarding Australian players. That will be the best place to voice your concerns.

While it's a shame there won't be local servers at launch, they are on the way at least, though no specific time frame was given as to when exactly.

This is the most impressive Titanfall pilot ejection I've seen yet

I've gone on record in the past to say that I'm not all that enamored by Titanfall. But, one aspect of it that I can appreciate is the way that its mechanics and use of verticality can lead to some pretty nifty feats. Here's one of them, even if it's maybe one part skill and about a million parts luck.more

Titanfall's 'Expedition' DLC is fun, but not entirely worth the cash

Titanfall came, and it hasn't gone just yet. Although I didn't find it to be the be-all, end-all of FPS games as we know it, it's a fun experience that I still play from time to time alongside Call of Duty: Ghosts. The t...more

We can't see the new Doom yet, but it sounds like a return to form

Bethesda said its big reveal of Doom -- that is in fact "Doom," not "Doom 4" -- at QuakeCon would be for attendees only, not for us Internet ne'er-do-wells, but I still watched the QuakeCon stream like a sucker, anyway. When ...more
