NC-Zone is the main reason i played so much aoe2 the last years. The fact it seems to be left behind really annoys me. So a possibility to keep it populated has my full support.
Also aussies are be great teammates and nice people as far as i have witnessed. The high pings made me grow an inner hate against playing with them though. If that really is no concern on DE (havent actually tested) i see no reason to keep the communitys splitted.
Appreciate AUS-Zone coming forward after they (sometimes/some people) havent been treated nicely here.

Great idea. There seem to be 4 players with an account in both zones,

Name Nc_Rate AU_Rate Difference
_Arc 2306 2019 287
jouds 2566 2029 537
link_chaos 2605 1982 623
Shed 3492 2914 578

I think a +400/500(450?) points would be a good point for conversion. We can increase/decrease this depending on how the games go.
There used to be many more players in both zones (ca. 10-15) and the difference is not just additive, but multiplicative+additive (the nc ladder distribution is more wide). E.g. kamigawa was 1200 puntos lower in Australia than in Europe.

But u are right, since DE, ratings are not accurate anymore anyway, and we can simply use a rough translation and correct manually afterwards (when - and IF - the zone comes back to life).

Ahh, didnt know that. Thought a sum with a constant wud be enough. I guess both ways we'll have to make adjustments.

With DE being servers based, there essentially isnt any network lag anymore.

We played tons of tg with brazilians so far and there is no lag (while we aussies used to have 600+ ping with Brazilians).

We played a few tg with phillips, jaysquared etc as well.

Zain and I are happy to do player activation etc from the aussie side pov of things, but i think nagus should be the main admin stuff related person from our side (nagus essentially ran aussie zone).

Thanks folks, permissions have been granted. :)

We'll active using known players as a reference point and take it from there. Hopefully we can integrate the interested players smoothly.

Hey robo, If you had a voobly nc zone account you can just login.
A voobly aussie zone account has to be re-activated.
