    This way it’s fair because east will always veto central

    Diamond (cali) gets 42ms to south central, Paradis (qc) gets 47ms to south central. It's the most neutral server for west vs east and makes for a completely fair game. vote yes

    The thing you are ignoring is that most canadian west players PREFER playing on the QC server or Central server vs the south central server. Those guys shouldn't be lumped in with the very few amount of west players that benefit from the south central. No matter what server is picked there are far more east players than west players. The ultimate goal should be to level the playing field, but having the entire lobby play on 70 ping instead of 9 players on 30 and 3 players on 50 isn't idea either. In this case the south central server is not an answer. There needs to be a Minnesota or Winnipeg server in my opinion.

    No matter what decision goes through either west players are screwed or go back to a massive advantage. More east players so we know how it will end. This is about EA having to create dedicated servers. It won't happen.

    broadway. If this goes through it's not an advantage for anyone. It's an equal playing feild for west vs east. Diamond (cali) 42ms Paradis (qc) 47ms to south central

    Those Canadian west players you're referring to don't understand that they will benefit from this. If they are van west, they get roughly 68ms to QC and 68ms to South central. If they are closer to Alberta area, they'll get roughly 60 to qc and 70s to south central.
    The difference is on QC server, the other team will be on roughly 5ms, on south central they'll be on roughly 47ms. So this would actually help Canadian west players be on a more level playing field and at less of a disadvantage. It's the best solution until more central servers are added in the future

    It was already added in, problem with it was the other team could just veto south central if they wanted

    Really? That's actually good then. I mean southern players the new meta but still I guess that's best option.

    This isnt necessarily true. While it's true for QCs on the QC server getting low ping there is an entire population of people that play around 30-40 on the QC, Virginia, and Ohio central servers.

    There are simply not enough west players in the community to currently justify forcing everyone in the lobby to play on 70 ping. That would create for a miserable experience for everybody involved. Most canadian west players are okay with playing on 55 ping on the QC server. It's the east virginia server that causes the most issue with northwest players. Defaulting to the ohio central to bring everyone "closer" to 30 as opposed to 70 is a much more realistic option.

    I do agree with most of this. A whole lobby on fair ping is not ideal at all, so technically the Alberta players can still play the game on qc if they wanted as long as the other side is east. But you saying that the whole lobby would on 70 is just not true. That's only true for the alberta region. Like I said QCs get 45-50, but players who are US east/midwest get low 40s, high 30s depending on exact location. And as we know, cali players get 42ms, van players get high 60s to it.

    So regardless, this change should happen to allow an equal playing field between west and east.

    East players will fight this because they know deep down that they’re terrible players. QC people would be forgotten about, stuck in the CHL for life. West players would be elite. This would be a huge change for LG. Unity is the most popular word of the year, now let’s all come together and play on an even connection.

    voted other and it says to comment.

    i think it's worth giving this idea a shot, but the only reason i voted other instead of yes is because when trying this new format i would still like to see a ban option and that's only because of the west server.

    i'm not saying that to be mean. it is my personal experience for several years now. i'm fine with any server... just not west. it's a total game changer. if southwest becomes the new west then i think i'll have no complaints.

    West servers wont be used. Like brodie said, 6 west players in a lobby would make it south central automatically

    Just because that says it's the best server means nothing. The northeast server is "supposed" to be the best for me & it's so laggy that it's not even funny.

    Out here in BC, I get 60-70 on QC server. 80-90/100 on everything else. Ohio and Dallas servers are worse than east. The real question is when will they make a real central server for up here. Been playing with ankle weights on forever.

    The only time south central would be used is when 6 west players are in a game. Really, it’s a solution mainly for southwest/oregon/washington players right now to make for even west vs east games until more central server(s) are added in the future.


    But it still benefits canada west players. Instead of playing on 60s against guys on 5ms, your playing in the 70s against guys on roughly 50/high 40s

    So would you rather be at a 20ms disadvantage (south central) or a 60ms disadvantage (qc)
