I began playing on Werner (EU) but quickly went to an US server and I probably will go to an US server this time from the start.

Assuming the server is located on the east coast so I get around 100ms.

 

US servers tend to have more players and I play a lot late in the evening when most europeans have already quit playing.

If that pro sieben thing also means we will get patches later, I will definatly play on US server or not play at all.

Free to play games atttract alot of balkan players who dont speak or dont want to speak english.

The game will be overhelmed like in WoT with those kind of players.

 

I have nothing against balkan players who speak english, i welcome you as brothers in arms, but for those other people who refuse to communicate in english they need their own server or this game goed down the drain.

Thats why i start on USA servers anyway, i can already see what will happen on 1st day of release.

 

This is also why I never ever play on EU servers. Even if the EU server is marked english you still get loads who do not speak it.

hopefully the penalty for friendly fire is pretty much the same as original planetside, at least, you do have the option of shooting said people, same side or no.. half the fun if you ask me

 

the latency issue is a big one though,  if the absolute best you can hope for is 90ms which is pretty high for an FPS, chances are with server overheads etc your probably going to be looking at least at latencies of 120 ms.. even with a decent cable connection and ISP,  anyone who doesnt have that much will probably get anything from 100 - 180 ms.. and if you live in the countryside as i do.. where cable is a dream that will never come true.. then your lucky to get even 200 ms.. which means you can pretty much forget bothering with USA based servers generally.. never mind just for FPS games..

i have no clue who these probien people are or what kind of reputation they have.. problem is, if i want to play PS2.. i may not have a choice anyway..  except the basic avoidance one that is.. which isnt really much of a choice.

probiensat is alaplaya  ... and some of their games like LOCO and S4League had many many hackers at one point on each game so i quit it ... they managed to lower those hackers after a while so it might turn out ok even for the EU .. but i'll sure play on US first and see if pings are ok ... i have fibre optic cable and i get like 50-135 ms on US servers ... only for a game i had like 250 ms but it still played pretty great :D

i play BLR now while i wait to get to play PS2 and even the EU servers i dont think they are in EU area lol since i have 64 ms and on their US server i get 85-120 something like that ... and then it is War Inc Battlezone ... that has EU and US servers ... now the US server has 60+ a bit and the EU has 20-22 ms now if Planetside 2 US server will have like 120ms i'll play and see how it works out and if i dont like i'll prolly try the EU server .. hope the ms on US wont be very high :D

We can pretty much expect this company to screw up and not give us a proper service.

They have said on the PSU forums that if you at least won't be able to make an SOE account from Europe, not sure about logging in.  You may need a US vpn.

It's not clear to me how far the IP blocking will be used for SOE games. From what I've read so far, it sounds like existing players (i.e. EQ2, etc.) will "always" have the option to play on US servers, but NEW customers may well be IP blocked and therefore be restricted to EU servers.

 

I cannot see the logic in SOE allowing EU players to freely use their US servers. If a EU player is playing on a US server, then he will also be using Customer Service for that US server. That would mean that SOE ends up providing CS while AlaPlaya just rakes in the cash. Can't see that working for very long, tbh.

 

I'm very unhappy with this state of affairs. AlaPlaya runs a portfolio of cheap asian F2P games. I have serious doubts about their professionalism, but hopefully I'll be proved wrong.

 

Lastly, it's no longer possible for EU players to use the SOE "All Access" pass, which was actually a good deal if you played multiple SOE games (even casually). Apparently, a similar "All Access" deal will be offered by AlaPlaya, but I suspect that will be a good bit more expensive than the SOE deal.

sry for the wall of text, i really hope they let me as a EU player play on SOE PS2 server ... i got this mail:

Dear Heroes and Villains,

An exciting time in SOE history has arrived and we are very pleased to be celebrating it with you, some of the most passionate DC Universe Online fans! As many of you know, SOE has partnered with ProSiebenSat.1 Games to provide and market eight of its games to players in Europe, including EverQuest® II, DC Universe™ Online, Free Realms®, Star Wars®: Clone Wars Adventures™, Magic: The Gathering - Tactics, and PoxNora®, as well as the upcoming PlanetSide® 2 and the next game in the EverQuest® franchise.

Specifically, the above mentioned SOE games will be made available through the ProSiebenSat.1 Games service in more than 40 European territories, including Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. Other countries may be added at a later date.

Under this new partnership with SOE, ProSiebenSat.1 Games will lead the effort to further enhance the presence of these SOE games in the European market. Expect more players and more focused attention on international players!

The transition process will begin today with DC Universe Online being the first game migrated to the ProSiebenSat.1 Games service. Once the transition takes place, DC Universe Online players in the above mentioned European countries will need to have or create a ProSiebenSat.1 Games account in order to play DC Universe Online. European players who want to transfer their existing SOE account and character data will need to link their SOE account with their ProSiebenSat.1 Games account.

Transitioned players who have pre-paid, non-recurring SOE memberships will automatically have their memberships transferred over to ProSiebenSat.1 Games so they can continue enjoying any remaining play time left on the account. For transitioned players who have a pre-paid, recurring SOE membership, their remaining membership time will also be transferred over to ProSiebenSat.1 Games; however, the membership will not renew at the end of the current billing cycle. Once the billing cycle ends, those players will be able to re-subscribe through the ProSiebenSat.1 Games service in order to continue enjoying the benefits of a similar membership.

What you need to do:

DC Universe Online players in the above mentioned European countries will need to have or create a ProSiebenSat.1 Games account in order to play DC Universe Online. European players who want to transfer their existing SOE account and character data will need to link their SOE account with their ProSiebenSat.1 Games account.

Linking your current SOE account to your new ProSieben Sat.1 Games account:

1.        Create a ProSiebenSat.1 Games account: If you don’t already have a ProSiebenSat.1 Games account you will need to create one. You can click here to create a new ProSieben Sat.1 Games account or login with an existing account if you have one.

2.        Link your SOE account to your ProSiebenSat.1 Games account: After creating a new ProSiebenSat.1 Games account or logging into your existing ProSiebenSat.1 Games account, you will be prompted to link it to your existing SOE Station Account. Enter your SOE account information and login if you want the accounts to be linked. After successfully linking the accounts, your DCUO items, character data and station cash (ProSieben SevenCash) will be available on your ProSiebenSat.1 Games account.

3.        Download the new launcher. After linking your ProSieben Sat.1 Games account to your SOE Station account, you will be prompted to download an updated LaunchPad. Start the executable and select “Repair/Reinstall” when prompted. Don’t worry, you don’t have to download the whole game again! Once you’ve updated the LaunchPad you’ll be ready to play DCUO by logging you’re your ProSiebenSat.1 Games account!

4.        Re-subscribe to any recurring membership:  Please note that none of your personal information will be transferred to ProSiebenSat.1 Games during the account linking process. No credit card or other payment information will be shared. If you want to continue or start enjoying the benefits of a recurring membership, please sign up for a membership using your new ProSiebenSat.1 Games account.


Players who have a SOE Authenticator will not be able to use it with the ProSieben.Sat1 Games account. If you purchased an Authenticator, we will refund you the amount you spent.

European customers who maintain All Access accounts during the transition period will be transferred to ProSiebenSat.1 Games later on in the process. Further information on the transfer of All Access accounts will follow in the near future.

Again, we are very grateful to have such a diverse and passionate community, and want to assure you that SOE will continue creating dynamic games for you and your friends.

Sincerely,
Sony Online Entertainment & ProSiebenSat.1 Games

There will be no IP blocking for PS2 - been stated so many times now I am tired seeing this question.

The IP blocking for european SOE players is already in place, but it only affects logins, not game server access.

 

As a euro-based player of the SOE games published by ProSiebenSat:

  • you can only login via your ProSiebenSat account, but you can play on any server (US or EU).
  • you have to use ProSiebenSat's Cash Shop and buy their virtual currency to use in games (you cannot use StationCash, even if your character is on a US server).
  • you can choose to play on a US server, but I have no idea what kind of Customer Support you will get for those characters, because as a euro-based player, you will only have access to ProSiebenSat's CS.
  • you can no longer buy an "All Access Pass" for SOE games, even if the games you want to play are not covered by the SOE/ProSiebenSat agreement (e.g. Vanguard and PotBS). That option is IP blocked. If you wanted to play those 2 games as a "premium" customer, you'd have to buy 2 separate monthly subs, whereas US players can play ALL SOE's games as a premium player via a single "All Access" pass.

What you need to do if you want to continue playing though SOE, is make a new SOE station account putting your location as US (annoyingly, this cannot be changed after making the account so you need a new one).

I doubt they will IP block regions or US players wouldn't be able to use their accounts if they moved or went on holiday to Europe.  They may region lock IPs on account creation, but you can just use a proxy when you make it.

You could use a proxy or vpn to create the "US" account with SOE, but then you'd also have to use that same method to login via your faux SOE account, which will most likely result in a horrible ping (not ideal in a FPS game).

 

There's an adiitional complication, in that you will have to use a US credit card as payment method, because when SOE verifies the payment method, they can detect where the card was issued. This is not insurmountable, as you can always buy game cards online and use them to buy Station Cash. Or never use the Cash Shop ;)
