    Hey all

    As I am closer to the European time zone, I'm considering playing on the European server once ladder resets.

    Is Europe a good server? Is it as populated as USwest or USeast ? Does it lag much?

    Thanks for any input :)

    From playing the last 3 ladders on both East-coast and Europe (I'm in Europe), I found the lag a little worse for me on the East coast server (no surprise really). I play HC only. Europe is fairly busy, nearly as busy as the US. Trading on Europe has been easier than the US (I guess more of the players there use a certain crappy trade site). The enchanto-bot games are busier on the US than Europe, they start earlier in the ladder and there's usually at least two going at any one time vs 1 on Europe, if that's your thing. If you are looking for the Diablo Clone, I've been dropped out of every game it happened on Europe so far, which is annoying. I don't know how stable it is on the US East side because I've never had a 'walks the earth' over there yet.

    Overall, I prefer Europe to the US East, but I wish the connections were stable enough for DC events.

    Ive played on the EU servers for 8 seasons now. And sure, as on every realm, there are fewer players playing d2 now than ever.
    But EU has always been busy, with alot of activity. And an easy time finding games.

    Last ladder was my first one ever and actually I really enjoyed it. The guys was awesome, I mean I traded with a bunch of guys (and played with some, too) last season and everybody was so kind to me. So many shops in the midseason with great stuffs with solid prices.
    I can't wait the next season folks.

    The comment had nothing to do with your English.

    'Is Europe a good server?' That was the question right zoiiii? Your post is.... haha, I mean this is not a gipsy-forum. Look elsewhere if you need a fight.

    Guys, this topic is doomed. :(

    Ohh man, you are wrong. I mean Archone's ladder shop, Crsynth's ladder shop; weapons, armors, helms, jewelry I mean everything for Pgems or runes or just trading smthg. Trading shops, man! You feel me? mule trades or in-game trades. Come on man, what's wrong with you? :)
    Please Archone, help me with this. :)

    That is nice. The biggest problem I had on US East during the last ladder season was that it was nearly impossible to get some of the not very valuable yet quite useful things because the trading forum was so quiet.

    Europe activity is triple East and West combined. And that's a conservative statement,

    Being from Sweden I get 100-300 ping with the occasional 1500 MS spikes, so what's up with that? I really want to play ladder but it's hardly worth it... Please help :(

    ps: I live on Gotland, which is an island off the coast, so perhaps that is why, but the 1500 ms spikes are still absurd, aren't they?

    @ Eyeback - Yep, as Archone said, I thought you meant the dreaded bot-sites. Apologies.
