so I am an EU player, and I want to use the EU proxys. if I use those, then I dont have lag and issues

however eu1 proxy is garbage. I never ever joined to the game with that, it hangs on me on the connecting to the login server page. however eu2 proxy works like a charm

so all I would like to know, how to force the game to run on eu2 proxy instead of the not working (maybe not even existing) eu1
this is the trick to force eu2 proxy for default eu proxy
  1. determine your windows directory, for example C:\Windows
  2. go to command prompt (cmd)
  3. take not of eu1 ip address by using: ping
  4. change to your windows drive and enter folder C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc (cd c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc)
  5. edit file named "hosts" using notepad (notepad.exe hosts)
  6. add this line at the bottom:
  7. save the file end close notepad
  8. ping eu1 again as above, note the ip address
if the ip address has different than the previous, it's done. if not, verify again all steps above. now your windows will force any hostname resolve of eu1 to eu2, try login to sto, note that sto still displaying "using" but actually you're now connected to eu2
