I was wondering if it can be more laggy or something

So far it seems really smooth. I recommend you choose a server at the East Coast, though.

you will get better server response if you choose a server that is closest to your location... like I live on the US east coast and if I chose EU, sure I could play, just playing east coast will offer a little less lag.

I almost never had lag in Beta, the fps were about 60-120fps depending on the eviroment and how crowded it was. I plan on playing on a Eastern PvP server and look forward to it!!!

EU: Under 100ms
US East: Haven't tried it yet
US West: About 250-300ms

Really good, considering that 250-300 was always my average ping in WoW on EU servers even in "dead" hours.

From some EU countries, esp. eastern Europe it can be not that good, because of rerouting.

In a word, Yes!!!!

Now, the internet connection may be good enough in most cases to not constitute a problem even if you do play on server overseas, but it will be safer to use a more local server.
