    east or west canada?

    You should pick whatever's geographically closer...one isnt bigger or better than the other, and the difference in ping is going to be more important than anything else.

    i agree with droid

    tracert to uswest.battle.net, useast.battle.net and europe.battle.net
    (they will timeout after the attens servers)

    fewer hops and lower pings will be better

    Well, if there is no technical advantage either way, I recommend USEast. It is more active than USWest, so if you ever want to make friends or trade, that is the way to go.

    Basically there are just more players on USEast. I don't have any statistics, except the ones available at this very forum. Have a look at the number of posts on the USEast and USWest trading forums, and you'll see what I mean. Europe is, of course, the most populous realm.

    I play east but wow they are such a pally and sorc realm pvm shako land on ladder. I think you know what I mean. Most pvp comes from nl but you have to work your way up on ladder to obtain gear and keep it on nl.

    europe is fine to play on if you can deal with some lag
    about 50-100ms higher there for me

    economy and servers are generally more stable
    europe trade forum is always busy, but you may need to use mule a acct for forum trades if you cant schedule them

    most of the players on europe type english
    some dont but you can ask them to
