Hi there, my names Alex.
I played from the beginning of BC into the early months of Cataclysm, when I had to move from the UK to Australia.
Now that I've settled in here I am thinking of getting back into my favourite ever game, but I have a few questions that I could use some help with.
1 - I am now living in Canberra. I have heard from the corners of the internet that the Ping times here in Australia can be pretty abysmal, especially when compared to the UK. If so, how do you guys get around it? And what kind of figures are you pulling?
2 - As far as I am aware there are no official Australian servers up yet, and that Aussie players have to connect to US servers. If this is the case, which US server is pretty buzzing with East Coast Australian activity? Or are we spread out across a broad range of servers?
3 - Obviously I had an EU account, with achievements such as 'What a Long Strange Trip it has been' and the 'Brewfest Kodo' etc on my main. Will these achievements carry across to my new toons in the US servers? And if so, do the mounts and rewards come with them?
Thanks for your time
