In order to pick the best server for launch we're letting the guild decide as a whole by testing ping times.
Help us pick a launch server by testing the ping to all of the servers, vote then reply with your ping. You can test your route and ping to the servers by doing the following.
open command prompt, type in the following "Ping #.#.#.#" or "tracert #.#.#.#" for full trace.
"ping 18.104.22.168" or tracert 22.214.171.124"
ping will just show time for a tracert you can see how many hops(each line is a hop) and your ping will be the last set of three before the "Trace complete" message.
Looks like EU and US are the same number of hops. EU servers average 140ms & US average about 60ms.
My best trace route ping time was for server 126.96.36.199 avg 58ms .. seems the US servers are in Texas, Stemmons Texas I believe.
