Issues with game servers
The Brazilian servers have had a history of malfunctioning since their launch:
- Before the February 2016 Double XP Weekend most Brazilian players had issues logging in, having to connect to foreign servers to participate in the events.
- Server 47 has suffered from several cases of poor performance in the past, including exceptionally high server pings, exceeding 2,000 ms.
- Due to the distance to the server, many Brazilian players have complained about the lag. On average, both Portuguese and Brazilian players reportedly have a ping over 200ms for these worlds.
