Exactly.

Of all the times to change it, why now? Every previous SOE game has displayed the server select screen when launching and that list of servers contained the NA servers and the EU servers, I say again....why change it now?
Dumbest fucking move ever from SOE.

I'm a European ProSieben account player; after I create my ProSieben account, will my SOE account be shut down?

Make sense of that question if you will.

That's your assumption though, so like I said we need to wait for response from Higby etc.

He hasn't been seen since that tweet so it isn't looking good so far.

Apparently its a bit like the way SC2 work currently?....

Of course SC2 isn't a MMO and hasn't been through server merges and years of gaming.....

There is your mistake. Those who created this agreement didnt use common sense. They use hunger for money. Soe get paid for exclusive europe for pro7, and they surely payed enough to make sure they will have players. So they lock them for new accounts and new games.

Damnit Sony, stop money grabbing and let people choose where they want to play! Also Martha stop being so damn ignorant and let me show you some facts...

Let me use Bf3 as an example for ping/lag. I live in Colorado and I get 15 ping on average for Midwest servers, 30 ping for servers on the East Coast, and 60 ping for UK servers. For 64x64 battles that's pretty good and 60 ping doesn't really affect gameplay, although it is a bit jumpy at times.

With PS2 I would have more ping, but it doesn't matter for a game that is about 1000's of players on a continent at a time shooting each other, it's more about the war and faction rivalry that makes it fun.

Martha is the first name on my ignore list... shame it is, I have really not expected to add anyone on these boards. Now at the first sight of the shit hitting the fan, serious flaming/trolling arises... c'mon guys, grow up! And try not to forget that after the final merge, EU players kept PS alive for a good 1-2 years! Now it is going to end - in a bad way.

My ping will be lower but who cares? EU residents will probably get a far-from-skilled support team, and a lots of tools will probably be US-only. Not a big deal... At least my outfit is EU-based - but we do have mates at the US-side too and they seem to be lost for us...

At least no chineese invasion on our generators... that's something...

This is shit and unacceptable.

It will mean 2 copies of the game, IF SOE allow a US account registration from a Euro address - and I am willing to they won't because the deal will be exclusive.

Further to that, I went through the Turbine/Codemasters issue on LOTRO and the service, forums and experience was abysmal. This will result in SOE not caring about euro subscribers and ProSieben investing fuck all in customer service as it makes them no money and they have no direct line to resolve major game issues.
It doesn't matter what promises are made now, it will not go that way.

Further to that, for outfits like us in Unleashed where we're a mix of people from all over the world that play in a euro timezone, we can no longer maintain our outfit.

This is horrible thinking and treatment from SOE.

If fine with SC2 and other region based games. Its better to play on nearest server. But Blizzard keep accounts for himself. thats what irks me. Different account system. If pro7 only managed server HW and advertisement i would be fine with it. But force us to play under someone completely different is unacceptable.
