How much does lag affect gameplay?
I’m located in Thailand and I want to get this, but the last time I bought a less-than-popular game (Red Orchestra 2) I got shafted by the lack of a South-East Asian community and was forced to play on AU servers. Needless to say, the ping for me was up around 300ms and I soon stopped playing.
Other than Singapore, the nearest servers to me will be Japan. I expect my ping to be around 200ms and I was wondering how much of a negative effect it’ll have on my gameplay.
Ultimately my decision on whether or not I get the game will be based on this, because I don’t expect the Asian Chiv community to stick around for very long.

Under 200 ping, the game is playable. Over 200 ping, your parrys become unreliable, and it will be hard to hit a backpedalling enemy with short weapons.
Well thanks for the reply. I hope I’ll always have low ping populated servers I can connect to :)
