    Mainly English, but it might be a bit awkward to converse with teenagers whose native language is something else. The amount of Germans is overproportionally high, so I'm having a bit less of a problem. However, the amount of idiots among German players seems to be overproportionally high, but that makes me feel like a saint with a minimum amount of virtues :D

    That is true concerning any online game I am afraid.

    But if there is a place where non-native English speakers speak English the best its EU realm .)

    Maybe it's just an imagined issue. There are 100 million native German speakers in Europe, so in comparison to e.g. Czech, there are 10 German speaking idiots for every idiot from Czech who would not be noticed that much then, I guess.

    But bots :(

    I suspect a couple of ETF traders to use bots or to deal with botters knowingly. I only act on hard evidence, but I think my part about people who don't care about making such an impression. The huge trade lists seem to have disappeared (so far!) and maybe it's the result of my most recent posting in the rules thread (it might as well be nothing but imagination). However, I think that the botters are offering selected gear only (which is at least a bit of a success), although a few trading threads are still a bit suspicious.

    Re: Europe?

    So do I, one of the reasons I've yet to make a comeback to ETF other is that I have played untwinked the last seasons, not this season tho, but Ive yet to find any tradable gods to offer.

    a common innsult on the EU realm would be "U ger???", but that said you'll find players with bad attitude from all countries.

    The advantage is that you can answer the one with just y or n while answering a "from?" question takes longer :whistling:.

    Shouldn't use traceroute to check which realm is best for you. Use ping, and wait for a few responses, in case an odd spike throws them off.

    Re: Europe?

    I've been thinking the same. Glad to hear I'm not imagining.

    To add something onTopic, I think you should play wherever the game flows the best for you. If theres too much lag, you cant play at all.

    Re: Europe?

    Oh. In that case, using the last results from traceroute that don't time out should indicate the best realm. From that image, it looks like USEast would be the fastest for you, followed by USWest with a clear margin, and Europe dead last.

    150ms ping in diablo is imo perfectly playable, at least in PvM.
