As an English guy living way out here in the middle east I was wondering (and have always wondered actually) if an EU only server would be better than a NA/EU or even a JP server for my location. I think, and please correct me here as I'm pretty ignorant about this sort of stuff, that my local ISP's cables come from some sort of hub in the EU, but does it really make that much difference?
If anyone out there remembers the 'What eruption?' , ''Oh that one that just killed me...' moments when fighting Ifrit in 1.0 you'll know what I'm talking about. I was one of those players that had to learn a different strategy to other players that involved ESP and some sort of sixth sense in order to be able to take part in that fight. Although it didn't spoil the game for me (as I kept playing until servers went down), I always wondered if there was any more I could do to make the game seem more like it was running in real time.
I think most of you guys in ZAM are NA with a few EU players posting here and just wanted to tap in to your infinite collective wisdom :)
