EU is and always will be majority of the playerbase in Warhammer Online. It was like that back on live, its like that in RoR and if Apoc will start gain significant number of players it will be the same here. EU prime time double or triple NA one in population and that includes also EU players who like to play late nights boosting NA primetime numbers.
Providing best ping for the majority of the playerbase seems like a logical choice to me.

Honestly my only reason why I don't play Apoc is the ping (as EU player), when i play melee dps i got like 0.5/1 second delay, almost impossible to kill someone, as healer the situation is a bit better but not that fun under pressure. So at moment I don't care about new contents if the ping make the game unplayable! The only good thing on RoR is the ping and i wish Apoc can be the same or better one day so I will play and support this project.

Why so all of us NA players can suffer like we do on RoR? Nah. It's fine as it is once it is stablized a bit more the server should be fine, if you expect EU players to get special treatment then I can't support you. It's nice for once having the server here as RoR is exceedingly filled with hostility for NA players, For a long time we have the lead dev banning people he found out were NA.

So all I can say is , tough.

Nobody expect special treatment - simple giving better ping for decisive majority of the playerbase.

Agree with Gravord, seeing as majority of playerbase is EU, it makes more sense to locate server there.

Taking RoR as population example - EU easily crosses 1k daily, even on working days. NA 300-400, which includes also at least 100+ EU players who doesnt have to get up early or dont need sleep much.
As for Apoc, even right now with very little population and NA ping, EU population is few times bigger.

Looks like there is a lot of consensus Apoc should be EU based :)

I can understand the point of Werebear... And even when server stays NA based i would never play RoR again.

But If you look at it objectively, the EU Player base on Apo is by far bigger than the NA one. And i don't think that is gonna change soon.

I really don't care about the server base for myself... I can handle some lags no problem. But it would be a good idea to attract more EU players and would be good for the server population ;)

That may change when the Apoc staff start promoting Apoc in a bigly way.

Didn't they say they were going to promote in NA heavily? is that right?
