Yes...assuming you want tremendous lag and the pain of organising raids etc. when you are in a different timezone.

I played on a US server during the mass beta weekend 3 weeks ago and had no lag whatsoever! I even played several PVP matches without any problems!

While EU players were complaining their butts of about massive lag on EU servers.

I have been playing EverQuest 2 (and still am) on the US RP server for the last 4 years without any problems.

This is not some FPS game where having a low ping gives you advantage.

An EU player can safely roll a char on a US East Coast server.
You can count on it that he/she will have less lag on a US East Coast server during EU primetime than on a full overcrowded EU server during EU primetime.

not to mention, everyone speaks english in the NA servers. that itself is one big enough reason to play in american servers instead.

My friend and myself used american servers during the last two beta weekends. No lag

On american servers evryone understand whats said in general chats, while my experince from wow is alot of yada yada in a different language than english in chats.

So my american friends you better prepare for alot of euros with bad spelling.
