Yes if your ping is good enough.

We have several players from NZ, Australia, Taiwan and Singapore that I know.

You will need an NA account and the NA client.

Nope... you can use a single client for the different servers:

True but if they are ever on a different patch you are stuck with the region your client is for.

True, but the patches are generally less than 24 hours apart. I used to play the European server with my North American client while the NA server was patching. I did this while monitoring the NA forums for any problems with the patch. When all seemed good, I updated my NA client. The Asia, EU, and RU clients were usually patched by my next session, so my client and all servers were on the same iteration of the game by then.

Except for events that are regional. Speaking of playing on the other servers, I haven't been on any of them for a long time.

No, but NA/EU players are defecting to the Chinese sever since they've not gotten to the new CV patch of 0.8.0.

So if you wan to play pre-cluster disaster of patch 0.8.0.1 to 0.8.4 then the Chinese server is for you... For now

There was somebody I divisioned with for a while who was from Vietnam and played NA server instead of Asia Server.  He had a far better connection to play NA server than my other buddy who plays from Kentucky.

 

I've played with a bunch of people from outside the Americas.  Vietnam, UK, etc., even someone from Russia.

Seeing the recent influx of chinese and korean typing in the chat window these days, I'd wager yes.

That is a sad comment about the state of internet in the US. You do not have to go far from a city before your internet options drop to dial up, DSL that is maxed out at 3 Mb up and 850Kb up, and satellite. We have a top tier backbone but it is the last mile where are system struggles

I live in Taiwan, played since the tail end of closed beta. The government here runs the internet and fiberized large numbers of rural and mountain communities years ago. It's generally a lot better than what you get in the US.

US ISPs are just milking whatever they can of old networks.  They really don't want to spend the money improving it.  Just provide old sh*tty service with unreliable access for many.

The guy from Kentucky constantly disconnects, loads late, etc.  He knows the problem is his end, there's nothing he can do.  Meanwhile our guy from Vietnam loads first and almost never disconnected.  Hell, he'd load earlier than me and I was playing with a good connection here in San Diego.

 

The guy playing from Communist Vietnam has better internet service than either of us here in the Capitalist Dream in the United States.

Absolutely you can. I do. Only real issue is that you have to deal with Americans ;-)

Can’t do that in America. Can’t have socialiZed infrastructure, Socialized internet nor Solialized medicine, cos having stuff that works well is anti-freedom. EOD

There is next to no competition between providers and where they do overlap in service area they operate as a shared monopoly.

That's true.  I moved to the mountains after retirement for privacy and was forced to downgrade to DSL.  I did get a little lucky with 24MB but it does go out at times.  A friend gets 3-5MB.  

The sad thing is that I'm not that far behind a nice development which has high speed fiber :Smile_facepalm:

I don't think there is a NA server in Asia unfortunately, so no.  You can play the Asia server in Asia or you can play on the NA server from Asia, but that is it.

:cap_tea:

Sorry, I couldnt resist.  :)

I am in Australia( east coast just outside of Melbourne,Victoria ),and have both NA and ASIA accounts.

Most of the time I have a better connection to the NA server than the ASIA one.

Not sure if its still the issue,but a few months after OBT ( when I was getting a very good connection to the ASIA server at 65ms ping ),apparently real ships kept dropping anchor on the undersea cables to Singapore.This resulted in bad lag and ping for over 6 months or so,and even when it settled out,the connection rarely gets better than the one to NA.I'll have to take notice again,but I think it usually matches the 105ms I get to NA.

From discussions we were having on the ASIA forums a few years ago,it seemed that the probelm was with Telstra mainly ( or I guess their cables ),another play who lived about 15km from me who was on Optus was having no issues.

I don't want to turn this political.  But today's Red States would have never made it into the 21st century, had there not been the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s and the Rural Electrification in the 1920s and 1930s, paid for by the federal government.  They were exactly socialized infrastructure.

Yes.  I was on work travel to Korea a week or so ago, and I was able to play on my NA account with no problems from the hotel wireless connection.
