DO NOT COMMENT OR TROLL UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT!
If you are like me and you live in oceania, New Zealand in particular you probably in whatever game you go to you lag.
I asked my dad about this and he said it could be three things, Slow roblox servers, us having slow internet, or the servers
being too far away (This means that your ping is through the roof ). So I asked my dad if we had slow internet ad he said
"No, we are on the fastest internet plan in the country."
And to verify what he said I went on various speedtesting sites and it was confirmed, I dont have slow internet. So I thought
that the servers were just slow, and after alot of painstaking research I found out what servers roblox uses, ( I would tell you what type but I would get in trouble for advertising ) they were not slow at all. So I only had one option left. Ping. ( Read the bottom for this
in noob terms ). Through alot of (very annoying) research I managed to acquire many of the roblox servers ip adresses through the Whois function.
So I put them all into a ping testing program and guess what? My ping was off the charts! RAnging from 361ms to 543ms!
Now to make it a fair test I got to visit Australia and Indonesia, and guess what? The pings were still WAAAY too high!
But lucky me had a cousin in the US who was kind enough to do the ping test for me, the lucky narb had a ping of 98ms!
So if you are like me and you live in oceania and you are sick of roblox prioritising the US and you are suffering from a laggy roblox, please, support this thread.
--------------EVERYTHING I JUST SAID IN LAYMANS TERMS--------------
Ping is how long it takes for a signal from your computer to reach a server, If you play any recent FPS game you will know that the higher your ping is the more laggy the game is. A normal game ping should be about 150-200ms if it is any higher, you lag. So if a server is far away you lag!
So basically, you are suggesting that ROBLOX set up servers in places like Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and other countries where ROBLOX is played by a lot of people to reduce their lag?
Cool, support :D
Theres been about 20 other threads about this that i've seen over the past 2 days, but i support, it would make where i live(the UK) a lot less laggy and would actually make roblox more money, as people would buy BC and build without the risk of lag.

idk, roblox is a small company that is based out of California and probably can't afford to go to a foreign country, if this would make more ppl in those countrys buy BC then support, otherwise, sorry no.
i believe roblox should take everyone who plays roblox, and get the avarage position on earth of them all :P
So it wouldnt be in US, it would be a bit away from US xD
WEWT! So you guys agree? And btw roblox aint a small company they make around 266 mil a month, I woiked it out.
"And btw roblox aint a small company they make around 266 mil a month, I woiked it out. "
If ROBLOX makes $266,000,000 a month, you wouldn't see ROBLOX running on the world's crappiest rendering engine and the crappiest physics engine. ROBLOX would have advertisements on TV, Radio, buillboards at New York City! They would have over 1,000 employees!
Your argument is INVALID.
ROBLOX hardly has 10,000,000 accounts.
If they made $266,000,000 a month, they would have MUCH MORE players.
Beep, its because roblox can't keep up with the amout of user's already, oh and the roblox HQ isn't in new york, its in california.
"Beep, its because roblox can't keep up with the amout of user's already"
That's why I said they would have over 1,000 employees.
"oh and the roblox HQ isn't in new york, its in california"
I never said it wasn't.
I would say roblox makes around 15,000,00 a month because of all the people with OBC TBC and BC,also think about the people with lifetime OBC thats already about 1,000 dollars right their and lifetime TBC and BC and 6 month and roblox cards and advertisements on the roblox site.Run on sentences are fun aren't they?
easy, make a new HQ in England, it'll give them more cash and more employee's and more people to make updates...
