First I wanted to say I am barely 2 hours away from DB on the West Coast and I get ping times at 10-30 ms with that being said with better performance came a host of bugs for DX11. I chuckled when a buddy of mine said Emerald Server runs better than Connery due to the lack of players from asia and people running high ping times. He was right! Connery lacks the hardware to support players with such horrible ping and frankly the Connery runs like junk. The bugs are still there but definitely less noticeable even with ping/server latency 50-100 ms. So essentially the game rewards players with high ping times and punishes those with a good connection.
