That is easy. Many have not unchecked Oceanic Server... Imagine the wait times if a majority of players opted out of the Oceanic Server......

Happened again today, twice in a row.

This seems counterintuitive to aid 1-2 players out of 24 repeatedly.
Shouldn't there be more servers for primary regions where the overwhelming majority of the player-base lives?

P.S. how did you post that image directly? I can only seem to use links.

The tick box for oceaninc is there so you can OPT IN to be used to fill in players to an oceanic match to get it launched. The entire point is to be a nice guy and let oceaninc players enjoy low ping for once. It usually only happens when theres a few players who have oceanic only enabled and they wait in queue long enough for the matchmaker to add in players who have agreed to being used like that.

If it bothers you, do not opt in.

My 2 cents:
From Bolivia, my ping improved a lot, so I think Fiber is being used to replace Copper lines.
My ping is about 127 to the N. A. Servers.
Must be ~250 to Europe and 300-399 to Oceanic

Why not install more servers around the World that can have Piranha requirements for a server?
