In World of Warcraft, all the dedicated realms for the Oceanic region have had to rely on servers of other continents, but that is going to change as we draw closer to the release date of Warlords of Draenor.
Blizzard Entertainment has announced on the official forums of the game that they will be introducing new servers for the Australian and the New Zealand fans of the game:
We are pleased to announce the upcoming deployment of Australian World of Warcraft game servers ahead of the games next expansion, Warlords of Draenor. This new infrastructure will support Australia and New Zealand and should provide a significant smoother gameplay experience for player in the region.
So this means that all the players who were previously playing from those regions will get improvements in latency and more when they try out the Warlords of Draenor.
This will have an impact on everyone who is in one of the following: Barthilas, Frostmourne, Thaurissan, Saurfang, Caelestrasz, Jubei’Thos, Khaz’goroth, Aman’Thul, Nagrand, Dath’Remar, Dreadmaul, and Gundrak.
Other than that, people in North American region, like the ones on Blackrock and Proudmore will be given a free character as well as limited time guild master realm transfer offers.
The announcement post has also come with a detailed FAQ section that should answer any questions that you might have in your mind regarding the upcoming servers.
That being said, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is being developed for Microsoft Windows and the OS X, series fans will be able to pick it up on November 13, 2014 all over the globe.
