Hi

It really doesn't matter. The servers are divided so people in similar time zones can play together. Pick the one you think best will fit when you're online.

Hope this helped.

There are two versions of the answer.

1. Ping times: there is no difference. Both North American servers are in the same datacentre in Virginia.

2. Playing Time Zone: There probably isn't much difference by now, as noted above.

I don't think it matters much when connecting from Tanzania. 🤔

If you want something closer to the Tanzanian time zone, I would suggest that you play on one fo the European servers.

The OP was posted on 13 Dec 2011, and if you look at the OP's bio it says they live in the US, so I doubt they're still concerned with which server to pick.

I've never seen "time zone" abbreviated as TZ before. I guess I fell into that one.
