Southern Legion pulls out of Planetary Conquest

The press release is here, but in essence, we were really, really tired of the choice of server determining the outcomes of our PC battles. When the server went our way, we won; when the server went against us, we inevitably lost, so we decided to give it a rest for the time being.

I’m proud of what we achieved in our time with PC; at peak we controlled over 10% of all the districts available, with some great matches both in our time zone and out. I’m confident that when the issues are resolved, we’ll jump back into PC at a later date and reclaim our turf.

Just not right now.

    I’m not playing Dust – so is it more of an issue from down in our corner of the world with lag etc, or more general for everyone?

      Anything cross-server is bad, but PC in particular is really bad. We’re seeing situations where we’re getting 1 or 2 FPS with 1200ms lag. I don’t care how good you are; you’re not going to win in such situations.

      One match, we managed to get the oceanic server to fight on, and our opponents (Nyain San) pulled out after five minutes because they realised they didn’t even have a chance. When the opposite happened to us, we’d fight it out because :anzacs: but it doesn’t do much for your morale to be stomped 35/150 repeatedly.
