Hi I live in Central Iowa and I have always had similar problems trying to decide east vs. west. I usually go east (1 hour difference for east vs. 2 for West which is usually based out of Cali).

I did a West server in Beta and I didn't have any noticeable delay from server response time. An occasional lag spike, that's it. The east servers were fuller, but in theory, it should be faster because of less distance for the communication to travel.

Hope that helps.

In terms of physical server location, we found during testing that the latency for servers on the West and East Coast of the US was generally pretty good for anyone within the US. Hopefully you'll find the same.
