We (NA) need access to the European servers. With the diminished NA server population, I can see no other option than to allow us access to Euro servers so we can get out of this terrible player base, which is killing any improvement to MM.

Ping is bad to the USE server from the west coast, I can't imagine how bad it would be to EU. I doubt the EU player base is any better than here, either.

I don't see your point. At 7-12 pm there is 200-400 people in queue, more than enough to run any tier. And besides, EU has the same MM we do.

You must have horrible problem solving skills, if you think that's the only option available.

You are absolutely allowed to access the EU servers, you just need to make a new account. :hiding:

I think it's a great idea. Keep NA the way it is but link the NA and EU servers so that both sides can play where they want when they want. NA would get access to a larger player base and the late night Euros could play on NA when our server pop is at its max.

Ping is bad on the east coast to that server as well.

I live in a Southern US state and the ping is BS monitor for EU. Its faster and smoother than playing on US Central much better than playing on East. There are no issues like we have on NA with technical issues posted on here. Vastly better performance on EU than I ever get on NA.

There are at times 90,000 to 120,000 people on so its better but still you simply have a bigger player base to water it down. WEs when I play on EU mostly, its no where near the crap fest it is on NA. But again lot more players to dilute the matches so it isnt as noticeable. Not nearly as toxic in chat because half the players you cant understand anything they say so a lot more use of map pings. They do enjoy TKing US players when ever they can. I get a lot of what I assume is negative shout outs in chat about the current administration especially from German and East Euro players.

 

P.S. You wont get the free stuff in the volumes you get on NA.

You can play in the EU server. Just make and alt account like the one you used to post this thread.

A couple of points Id like to bring up because some players are often complaining about "quality of gameplay" or some such thing.

 

Point 1.  Some players are under the impression that pub battles are "team" oriented. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no Commanding Officer or even Platoon Leaders in pubs. In fact, if some perma-teal re-roll barks orders at the "team", many will do the opposite just for spite.

To have an effective team, there must be a recognized and followed authority leading it and that is just not the case in pubs.

 

Point 2.  Since pub battles have no real leadership, just self-appointed armchair Generals whom no one will follow, then one must realize that pub battles are actually 1 vs. 29 affairs. (2 vs. 28 or 3 vs. 27 if platooning)

 

Point 3.  Realizing you are 1 vs. 29, you need to further understand that the LOWER the average skill level is across the entire server, the EASIER it is for a better than average player to carry his battles and improve his stats.  Over a large sample, the enemy teams will all average out to... average. A better than average player will have, on average, slightly better than average teams due to the fact that he is always on every one of his own teams.

 

Point 4.  Better than average players should, therefore, be happy that the overall skill level of the game is declining (if that's even true) because the lower the average skill level is relative to their own skill level, the easier it will be for them to carry more often.

 

Point 5.  If team play is important to you, stay away from pubs… instead, do Stronghold Skirmishes, Team Battles, Clan Wars or Tournaments.

I do it all the time from California - yes it's higher but it's not unusable.

Well aren't you special and witty! Look super genius - its about numbers - there are more player on the EU servers than NA - pure simple facts!

Look when you see matches 2 15, 1 15, 3 15 more so than ever after 7+ years of play you can't just kiss off the number of players and experienced players issue. You would have to be blind to any observable evidence!

I am in Boston and my main account is on EU.  My ping is 125ms, which is very playable.

I have been playing on EU for 4 years.

My playtime is in the morning and early afternoon, which is great for playing on EU.

Generally have 25 - 60 K players online on each of  EU1 and EU2.

In terms of playing, I experience no difference in gameplay.

Why? The EU servers allow certain mods that are considered illegal on the NA servers. Snowflakes would have a meltdown playing against EU players.

I don't see the logic, having a larger player base does not make a higher percentage of good players.  How does having a larger percentage of poor players (your statement) affect MM?  MM takes into account tier and types of tanks not skill.

Seems like their are plenty of players on NA my wait times are perfectly acceptable.
