Let's see, adding a few thousand more miles to the route, yes, it can be.

It might not.

You could have the worst route in the world to your physically closest server, and a far better one to a more distant one.

But what are the odds of that?

In an ideal world with no implications, anything going from A>B will take X time, and if the distance A>B is increased, so will X...


SO if you're EU and play on a US server, there is further distance to the server so it will take longer to get there and back (Higher latency)

That being said, so far it still seems playable to play cross continent servers, however if it still is a couple months down the line is unknown

Well length of cable has really low implication on latency. it is the jump through a router that generates time not to mention firewalls.

So the least amount of jumps gives the least latency to simplify things.

I play on Shadow Hand (US east coast) and my MS is in the high doubles or low triples.
It's very playable, heck in WoW on EU servers I'd often get MS around 200.
