People that aren't at least on the same continent as the server will have high ms which can negatively affect their combat efficiency.
One way some games fix issue like this is by having shards for every area, but that doesn't sound like it'd work for MR like game, at least not when pop is low.
I don't know how logistically feasible this will be, but what if servers changed location according to prime time of the area.
So around 18 to 00 hours see most activity while there is hardly any around 5 am. but while it's 5 am in one place of the globe it's between 18 and 00 in another.
Any better ideas or insights from people who actually know this stuff?

Hey @John White,

It is definitely viable in our situation and it is something we will be looking into in the near future in order to enhance the player experience. Thank you for your suggestion!

Can we region lock servers?

This seems to be a great idea that we can start tinkering with during alpha/beta to make sure players from different timezones get the best possible experience.

I keep saying we need to host servers from Pakistan. It'll instantly resolve the issue.

probably some form of racial or gender segregation would fix the lag issues
