asks about servers to try clear up the confusion.



There seems to be a lot of confusion over "East Coast", "West Coast" and "Central" shards.

People are still making references to "Central" shards, even grouping Lake Austin in with Great Lakes, Lake Superior & Chessy, as if that condition still exists (if it ever did).

I can see references going back to the AoS Release of Lake Austin being a West Coast shard, as far back as the opening of LA to non-new accounts.

And, were the Central shards ever actually in Austin, as many commonly believe, or were they in Chicago, as Brandon Williams stated in January 2004? - And where are they now?

The servers are currently at a few locations - one in Europe, one on the US East Coast, one US West, and either one or two in Asia. At one point I do believe the "Central" shards were located in Austin, but they were moved a number of years ago and now all the US shards are either on the East or West coasts

Sonoma is definitely on the West Coast. When I was in D.C. a month ago, my ping doubled to 120.
