That's because everything outside of America is irrelevant.

EvE already does this, and they do it quite well. They're the only game that has a SINGLE server, I'm pretty sure. Its all persistent, ect. It doesn't affect my ping times at all. But the way Planetside 2 is designed, with its population limits, it would be impossible.

Distance has less to do with it then the route the packets must follow. The more servers you have to bridge your connection through, the higher your ping.

You could be 100 miles from the server and still have your connection being bounced halfway around the world instead of a more direct route.

I don’t know much about the subject, other than I know I would prefer it! (Not at the cost of game performance, though)

Imagine having a server at “peak” time 24/7?
You cannot improve beyond the speed of light...

Eve DOES have population caps though. You can only have a few 100 in 1 area before the game lags to death, after that you have to queue to get in. It's not a single server either, it's many servers in 1 cluster which is why the game world is not seamless.
