@Ub3rgames so is it EU or NA?
We can already tell where the server will be and it is all bad news If the release is in next few months then server will be in France. The reason is simple. It is a lot of work to migrate the application to a new infrastructure (I doubt Darkfall has been dockerized) . A lot of fine tuning and testing needed specially around performance and latency. There is not enough time for this.If the release is so far off that dev are not thinking about final location than it could be in NY. That means release won't be on 2017. I am not a fanboy so here is how I see it.@Ub3rgames is not being sincere to their customers. They even admitted they dragged this thing for too long. I don't buy this whole "market share" will determine the destiny. There will be huge disappointment either way if it is on EU or on NA. We know there are players who will simply not play if DF is not in their region. So Why not get this over with early on? Have the whole community on board on the finalized location. What exactly do you gain (actually risk a lot negative PR) by keeping such a disruptive decision towards the end?
As much as i want to know their decision.It really shouldnt matter.1. Its going to be the only darkfall you can play in about a month or two2. There's been massive work in making the client more response, making playstyles less ping based possible.3. The entire point of this iteration is to move away from having PvP as the only reason to play the game.Your ping doesnt matter for trading, crafting, PvE, politics, ect...ect..If the game doesnt offer this, with enough of a focus on them to fill your time, its going to fail anyway. Doesnt matter if its Eu or Na server.Having said that, they should announce and set up their server so launch doesnt get fucked.It also helps players get used to what its going to remain like, which is good because swapping from 40 ping to 140 (or vice versa) fucks you up a lot for a few weeks.
Final decision about where the servers are gonna be located should have been made clear months ago already

obviously, it will be in NYC. thanks everyone for participating.
Our guys are all NA and they are happy with an EU server. Honestly the game vision is likely to cater more to an EU than an NA crowd. We'll play wherever it is.

We'll play wherever it is.For many of us its not about us its just looking at the numbers, the west coast of the US has got to be one of the wealthiest and gamiest regions of the world and not putting that over the far less so E EU and Russia, even though far more generally populated, makes no sense when discussing a subscription game.
