Hello. I just want to acknowledge that this was a deliberate step taken to prepare for PvP in the Burning Crusade Classic.
As a result, we expect to see:
- Better PvP queue times for players on Oceanic realms.
- Better Arena matchmaking for Oceanic players.
- A much higher likelihood of Oceanic players being able to meaningfully compete for end-of-season rewards.
On that last point, remember that all of the realms in the Americas and Oceania are part of the same region, and Arena season rewards are region-wide. We don’t want to see Oceanic players prevented from earning rewards because they aren’t being matched up against the vast majority of the region.
