    Both, likely. I'll be gaming with Fast E for a while at least on his native servers, but depending on the lag/latency I may play on my local servers instead of the ones across the pond. But I may stick with EU if I'm happy there. Besides, if I want to be MP-ing with other random SPF members (and that's a BIG if, and won't occur for quite a while) I'll probably need to be available on both servers.

    So... Durf/boobies is the most apt selection for me.

    Being in South Africa, the distance to servers and our terrible infrastructure makes lag an issue.Since the Internets goes through Europe on its way to the US, I'll be playing EU. D2 was never really playable on b.net from here (by my standards), but I've gathered from other people that the AL is pretty good, and I've also played PoE without a problem.

    EU - because i live in the EU... Though i guess i may well end up on both, especially when pvp rolls round.

    EU - I live in the EU and since MP will only make a very small amount of my play time, I might as well stick with the best server performance :)

    Re: D3 - US or EU servers

    I live in Latin America, so I dunno. I played in EU on d2 (people said that it was more friendly, etc.) and I kinda liked it. I'll stay a while on Latin America (I believe that d3 has a latin america server...) and if the "forum activity" focus on EU or US, I'll move to one of them. So, yep, kinda dunno...

    Edit: Also, people on EU servers are more tolerant with my insanely bad english and I don't know how to write on spanish (quick note: some people believe portuguese and spanish are almost the same... Well, they aren't. I remember that once, there was a guy from argentina in a series of lectures here, in Brazil. Everyone spoke english with him :coffee:)

    EU. I'd actually been assuming that the server choice was region locked like Starcraft 2 is. Is this not the case?

    Whichever one is closest to where I am, so I'm rolling with EU ;)

    Nope. D3 is "global," in that you can play on whatever region you want. There's no character/item transfer among them, naturally, and you *may* be locked into the RMAH that correlates with wherever you bought your game (so the American dollar in the US, the Euro in Italy, etc).

    Good news for me, it looks like I will be the only one on the US server. LOL!!

    Need an option for "playing strictly solo so it really doesn't matter".

    Was a tough choice between not playing and boobies, I went with boobies.

    I will start in US just because I am here. Might visit EU too to have a start from scratch feeling at some point or to hang with some friends there. I am actually looking forward to multiplayer capabilities of diablo too just for the ease of playing with friends.

    Re: D3 - US or EU servers

    I am in Aus and we have just as bad infrastructure, that sad lag to the US server wasn't too bad.

    I am playing on the US server, but I couldn't resist voting for boobies.

    Edit: forgot to add my reasoning. Main reason is it is the default server for Aus and it will allow me to play with Kegs, Muggs, Zokar et al.

    I may run some untwinked games on EU to play with Skjolde and Korial (if they'll have me :))

    Re: D3 - US or EU servers

    I also voted boobies cause I prefer to point out the positive - boobies - instead of the negative - not playing.
