@chrieze, hehe ok true, but I mean Japan is directly above South Australia, and south australia is only 2 hours behind you, while japan is strangely 4 hours behind. So the sun hits both places in the same way, which means that the clock says 2 hours later in Japan than in SA when the sun comes up at both places (and then again at night) which I find odd. Lot of dark mornings in Japan and light evenings apparently. (Or the opposite for south australia)
I don't know if there is a neutral server for you guys to play on? It would be nice if you can find one that gives you both a somewhat close ping, but if not then you'll probably have to swap back and forth to each server.
