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....
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.
Thx for these nice words. i will follow you and will enjoy it. Oh and send me some belgian waffles plz. The one with honey or sugar. Im so in love with these things. Visited belgium around 4 times.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!!
