Regionalisation would be a backward step and IMO if it did happen I don't think many people would migrate from here anyway. (The earlier comparison to City of Heroes US and EU was spot on).
And to the people from Europe who are complaining about downtime in EU times, all I can say is: the servers are in the USA on the west coast. People there work 9 hours behind Europe so you can hardly expect them to perform maintenance out of work hours for the USA.
This is a global game andwhenever they have maintenance somebody will be inconvenienced. Is it not arrogant to think that, as Europeans, we deserve special treatment and no downtime at primetimes? Perhaps its more equitable to rotate downtimes so different time zones aren't affected but this would be more expensive in the long run and frankly I'd rather my subscriptions went on more content. I did manage to function without this game a few days ago and I am sure I can think of something else to do while the servers are down.
