# 1 The proof is in the pudding...

Today proves without doubt that this game needs a EU server cluster....

I started playing about 3pm UK and it was as smooth as a babies bottom, no lag, no connection issues, instances load instantly - a complete joy to play....

Then at about 9.30pm UK when the Americans start to come online, the whole thing starts to go down the pan..... It's not that I have a problem with the states, I have a problem with not being able to play during the main peak times in Europe.....

If we had our own server over here in Europe then none of these problems would exist.....

There aren't many people playing at 3pm on a workday. This isn't the issue or the solution.

They simply do not have enough server capacity yet, and for some reason are being overly cautious abut capacity increase. I am going to guess extreme pressure about overhead.

Wouldn't it be just as easy to reverse this?

I wanted to play at around 4:00 eastern time, but I couldn't because all those damn EU players are still playing since like 8:00am my time.

Maybe if you logged off and went to bed we could play too.

Back to reality....

They HAVE to add more servers. As it stands now the game is crashing from load from just the head start people and on top of that people are hitting 2,000 person queues. I don't care what they say about it being software related, they will never handle the players after launch tomorrow.

So basically what I am saying is either the entire server system is going to flop and you get your money back because they simply can't run the game, or they add more servers to handle the loads.

Those forums are soooo funny, I wish the server could crash even more often.

The only Americans to blame are in California and they work for Cryptic.
