It's not good news at all.
When have you EVER seen a server in OZ that can handle that many players? It's just a false gimmick to look cool.
Tried joining today. Good waste of 30 minutes. With almost 60 players on, half had ping over 200ms! Bit of a joke. This is the only server I've ever seen that's had so many high-ping overseas players dominate it. Quite a few had pings of 350-400ms, and no surprise that a lot of them were just there for some PvP.
I had to give up after trying to get in after 30 minutes. Sure, I could finally join the server for a change as there was enough slots, but the server was lagging so badly I never even got my character loaded.
Makes no sense to me that they increase the slot cap to cater for more foreign players who just ruin the performance for everyone else anyway. Without those 25-30 high ping players right now the server would be golden.
