    For anyone interested the Japan server is now Season 5 with 75 days left synched with EU and US servers and with new map as of today 10th Aug - and for the first time victory crates for winning

    For players like me from Australia - the difference in ping and lag is staggering compared to EU - now only if enough people start playing Japan server and enough people get better over time it might actually work for people in our region of the world

    Its mostly all English as well

    Last thing - it is no longer region locked to Japanese PS account - I can play no problem on my original account

    How do I hop on Japan server on my regular account?

    2 high,
    Create a Japanese PSN account - then download the game with that from Japan store - the Japanese account status will trigger the Japan version to download

    After installed - you will have 2 of the same Game Icons on your screen (whichever you played last is more to the left) - but even when logged into PSN with your normal account - it will let you play when you open the Japanese version

    At first - I needed to change users and play with the username i created with Japanese account - but that has changed - so I now play as steve_y66 on Japan as usual as per EU servers

    To be fair the standard is not there yet - I think I won 7 of my first 10 games and I'm not an elite player at all - but the more good players playing the players should improve
