With the announcement of Jagex's acquisition by a Chinese firm, I'm pinning some hope that Runescape will be more Asian-gamer friendly.

It has been a while the last time we had an Asian server. I would like to appeal, that a 200ms ping time that Asian Runescapers like myself is not competitive enough, in fact it is an "
unfair disadvantage
" against us. We have no choice at the moment, as we cross-continent just to reach a Jagex server.

I had an old thread where I posted a suggestion for the creation of an Asian Server, maybe situated either in Singapore or South Korea will work wonders for the rest of the Asian Runescapers. We have debated this for the last 5-years relentlessly, the quest is still on. We somewhat reached a goal, a server from India -- but it didn't last long.

With my research, the new owner of Jagex has deep pockets. Hopefully, this time around the solution to the 200ms ping time problem of Asian Runescapers get a definitive solution.

Support. Everyone should be able to access the game without the issues of lagg, etc.

I can understand your frustration.. :P I live in Australia, and have great connection to any server worlds, except the Australian ones...

Nexus, So? What do you want to imply?

We can even give that a different spin, that there is a huge growth potential of Runescape in Asia. Now there is the problem, that people at the other end of the world has the unfair disadvantage of the 200ms ping tax. Given that Jagex is now becoming an Asian-company, hopefully, hopefully more love for Asia!

Cut us some slack!

Feels like he's trying to imply that little picture of his is still relevant despite it being posted back when MMG was still the big boss man of Jagex HQ
Now this is what I call a brilliant signature

I'm not implying anything. I simply presented an image that illustrates the player base by region. Any implications that you came to, were your own thoughts on the matter, not mine. So if anyone needs to cut you some slack, it's you, not me.

He has right to his own opinion, mine the likelihood of having an Asian Server should be bigger - given Jagex is an Asian company now. I have that hope, just imagine your fellow players have 2-digit pingtime vs your 200ms -- is such game fun, do you think?

I never posted an opinion on the matter, I simply presented an image. It's funny how you have come to all these conclusions without me saying a single word on the matter.

Picture is kind of irrelevant anyway.

South America still has their own servers - they even have the game in their own language!
Australasia has many different servers also.
Even Africa has servers and the figure in the picture shows less than Asia.


1 server for Asia isn't going to hurt... I'm sure making a server in Asia to help Asian players would earn Jagex more money though memberships from players in that region, than increasing TH/SGS promotions...
