I am from Australia and the Oceanic community of players. Even since vanilla we have long discussed with blizzard (practically begging and shouting at them for over 9 years) to give the Oceanic and SEA community proper server support for World of Warcraft. Oceanic or "SEA" is compromised mainly of Australia, New Zealand and South Asia regions.
The problem is that Oceanic servers do exist in World of Warcraft, ever notice that little TAB in the server list with Oceanic? That's us. The problem lies with that these servers are actually hosted in the US, like any NA server, but are just labeled as "Oceanic" servers to split the community of SEA players away from NA.
I wanted to make this thread to discuss the possibility that blizzard may be hinting towards SEA/Oceanic servers? The latest expansion information (still unconfirmed if true or untrue) was officially trademarked in "New Zealand" and "Australia" a short time later. This got my attention.
It may be an overreaction, we still have no idea blizzards true goals or plans behind SEA servers or if this expansion information is credible, but lets discuss the fact that the trademarking in our region MAY or MAY NOT hint possibly SEA/Oceanic servers in the future (hosted in SEA region, not US).
Please keep it civil. <3
