I was bored and looking at the shard list today and I began to wonder exactly where each shard was located, and which geographical area of the world do they cater too. There a some that I know, some that I don't. I would like to use this thread to find out exactly where each EA server is located on the planet and which audience that plays them. If you are as bored as me, you can help me figure out where each one is. I'll begin by providing the list of the ones I know and the ones I don't. Atlantic Legends Lake Superior Great Lakes Chesapeake Catskills Siege Perilous Pretty sure these are all East Coast USA servers. I have heard they are in New York. Anyone remember, or could clarify? Origin Pacific Sonoma Lake Austin Baja Napa Valley I believe there are all West Coast USA servers that reside in California. Please correct if wrong. Europa Drachenfels I'm pretty sure these are the only two shards dedicated to a European audience. I have no idea where they are located. Oceania I think this one is the only Austrailian shard of UO. No idea where it is. Mugen Wakoku Hokuto Formosa Izumo Mizuho Yamato Asuka Arirang Balhae Sakura These are the ones I know the least about. I would love to find out exactly where each of these are (geographically). Years ago I heard of EA moving all shards to Austin Texas. Don't know if it was true or not. But given average pings and distance, it makes me think that they are seperated geographically to support their customer base. I live on east coast so I ping better to east coast servers. When I take a trip out to California, I ping worse to the east coast servers and better to the west coast. Anyone wanna help me figure out exaclty which shards are korean/japenese/chinese? Please help me find out where each one/group is located!
