Thinking of preordering

I did answered you on Discord aswell.

There is no plans (for now) to have a server located in EU. That being said, the nature of the game, with a slow paced combat & long global couldown, and exclusive PVE content, is much more forgiving than for more action oriented games.
I do play from Belgium since the early days & our world designer @Charlizd from Australia. We never encountered PING issues. Atleast I never did.

If you are hesitating, I would recommend you to wait a little before to pre-order the game. We will release a bunch of informations starting the 1st of january. That will give you a better overview of our project and you will be able to make a more educated decision. :)

Having EU server is not a deal breaker for me, unless you have open world bosses etc, then it does become a problem. FFXI was a good game but, in the EU you could not get the kills on open world bosses because the the people with the lowest ping always got it, that been Japanese servers meant asians always got the loot and sold for stupidly high amounts on AH, again this leads back to money seller problem, they dont just botfarm they will level characters specifically to farm the bosses etc....

Our intention at the moment is to have 1 single GLOBAL INTERNATIONAL server. We will have to see how in practice this plays out. We need to see with how thing happen with our WORLD BREAKER event and take decisions then.
But so far that's the intent. We also hope to translate our game in other languages once we establish ourselves. That will mostly depend of our success and the interest of the community. But then again, we want to keep everyone on a same server if possible.

We really want to focus on the feeling of community, and in 2022, its really about time to have a global, international game if technically doable! So everyone can play together.
My personal dream since I started, back in 2003! :3

Well Im pretty excited. This game looks like the game i was waiting for. Im a little community leader for my own and i did some advertising for the game as well but.....im not sure if i preorder the game too. Most of my members wait for EU servers too. Mostly cause there are ppl with a pretty slow connection. We talking about 25k Downstream.....
Many ask me to prepurchase and test it for them. Stream it and tell them my opinion but...im not sure with preordering too. Just cause the EU-Servers Problem. I mean yes it is slow but if you have 2 seconds to dodge a attack, then 0,5 seconds are 25% less time to react. This is HUGE.

Hey hey Avina!

I understand your reservations.
It's really unlikely we will host a EU server, because we really want to have everyone playing together on one single global server. And so far, it work really well. None of our EU testers (aI'm myself from Belgium) have reported bad ping. That being said, its really our WORLD BREAKING event in April that will allow us to consider our options better. This event will also be open to non preorders, so keep an eye over here to sign up with your community when it happen!

As the NDA is lifted you can expect content creators and streamers testing the game and give their own opinion. Mine may be a little biased or short sighted, as I've only be playing from one location.
Wait a little bit to form a proper opinion!

I will be hosting a weekly show on my personel channel aswell on Monday 4-6pm CET. You welcome to check it out and ask all your questions!!
