I'm just curious if it does not matter which server we chose for connection quality? My brothers who live in the East rolled on a West server and before I join them I wanted to see if it would make much difference.


Thanks in advance

Our servers are located in different physical locations, as denoted by their listing in Server Selection. We have servers on the East Coast USA, West Coast USA, and in Europe.

Could you be more specific - are all European servers located in the same country/city? If not, is there a way to determine which server is hosted where?

Thanks for the quick response Allison, much appreciated.

I would gather from your response that since there is a physical distance associated with the actual servers that it would be a wiser choice to stay in your own region?

Where exactly is a good question and one that I need answered also.

I live in Central Canada & therefore I have no knowledge of whether I am closer to the "West" or "East" server without a specific city location.

This information would be great!
