Hi all,

Starting on May 9, 2022, a networking option provided by one of our partners will be terminated. As a result, if you are playing on the Middle East server, you might experience a high ping. We are exploring different options to solve this issue and will keep you posted.

Please be aware that any solution will take time to be implemented. Therefore, we cannot provide an estimated solution date at this time. If you experience high ping after May 9, we recommend switching to another server or setting your server selection to Auto as a temporary workaround.
