Because you guys don't have west coast servers like ijji did, my ping went from 50-70 to over 200 consistently. This is a serious crying shame. It has cut my game play in half. It's intolerable to be floating, tele-porting, dc'ing and lagging as much as you guys have caused me.
Point being...I have to be replaced in CW all the time. My ping skyrockets from a low 150ish (yes that's low for me now) to over 300 for 1-3 minutes at a time. Its freakin outrageous. So, we called for a replacement and the other team started screaming stack and taking screenshots even though we told them it was a replacement. CW teams need to understand that too so there's no lame banning for replacing. FYI.
I lost a 6-6 match cuz my ping went to 414 and I dc'd and lost the clutch while stalling with 18 seconds on the bomb. Lame.
The scrim channel was still in the East coast server all the same. The North America server (and scrim channel) now seems to be in Canada, which should be closer to you. If you have ping problems, make sure to end Akami netsession and Aeria Ignite with task manager.
If you want to sub in a clan war, you should tell the other clan and have the replaced player leave first before subbing him. But thanks for bringing that up, I'll add it.
