DOTA 2 Australian servers go live in just a few weeks

Tuesday, 4th December 2012 02:20 GMT By Brenna Hillier

DOTA 2′s Australian servers are just a few weeks away, Valve’s Milton Ngan, a likely sympathetic New Zealand-born staffer, revealed on the MOBA’s developer forum. The equipment for Valve’s Sydney data centre has “just arrived”, apparently, and should be racked and configured by January 2013. No more extra-continental ping on local matches; it is a fever dream come to life in glorious technicolour.

    Yet Riot claims that they can not do this for League of Legends. I get 220 ping on NA servers & 350 ping on Euro servers & those results are on good days

    Valve already has a bunch of data centres in Australia which it uses to deliver Steam content, so it’s a matter of finding some extra room and hardware. For Riot to establish brand new data centres is a whole different matter.
