    USEast vs. USWest Ladder: Any differences?

    Back in 01' I played on USwest and didn't really notice anything, but I kept hearing from my customers(worked at net cafe) USEast had less hacked items and just a better player base. Considering I live on the west coast I found this odd, however I didn't pay much attention to them.


    I was planning to just play on USWest like I did before, so I thought I may as well if theres really any differences between the two.


    Thanks.

    Judging from the various stories and anecdotes from other forumers, I'd say that East and West both have their fair share of idiots and morons. You could try to play on both realms and see which one you like better, but I'd just continue to play on West, especially if you have friends there already.

    Playing on both realms can be fun though. Like if you're realm down in West, switch to East! And vice versa.

    East is a bit more popular. Has some French speakers from Quebec. West has some asian language speakers. They are pretty much the same.

    I'm starting over from scatch, so I wanted to see if one realm was more friendly then the other because my friends no longer play diablo. I was also wondering how much of a poplation difference there is between west and east.

    Like I said, both realms are riddled with morons and idiots. Picking a realm based on the level of "moroness" is pretty difficult.

    West has always had more hax for Blizz games. Look at the history of banned accounts for hacking/abusing and West always gets the most accounts closed/keys banned. Or maybe Easties just hide it better ^_^;

    Which is weird, since East has always had more people. I guess us Westies are just more stupid.

    Always will. I bet that's why not too many of them get their accounts locked and stuff, even the Blizzard folk don't wanna go near em.

    That's why I always wear cootie protection when I visit my east accounts. I always practice Safe Realm!:grin:

    I have accounts on all realms, and generally have found that east and west are pretty much as reported above. Europe is probably the friendliest, as long as you don't say you support Bush. Asia is the quietest, which can be quite nice!

    There seems to be more nice/helpfull people on US East aswell, it may just be me but there seems to be alot more people offering free stuff/rushing etc on US East compared to West

    I don't think you will ever find a true answer because almost everyone is biased towards the realm they play on. For example, I would say US West is better because I play on it. However, I did notice that when the East Servers were down for a while, there was a ton of weird people on US West from US East (see, i am biased :thumbsup: ).

    I think you should play on West simply because you will most likely have a better ping and less lag than you would on East.

    We on West are a greedy bunch, just ask anyone of us how many mule accounts we have crammed full of crap we'll probably never use. :laugh:




    Gib Itamz!!!!

    Uh-huh, they were spreading their cooties! I was sick for two whole weeks after that!

    Yeah you're right. I would probably sell my mother for a mule full of HRs...
    Actually, maybe not. My mommy can buy me runes on eBay :laughing:

    Requiem, I will hunt you down and give you West Cooties. Also known as West Nile Realm Down Craziness Double Sneak Attack.

    Wow, $120 for that cooties shot was the best money I ever speant, I could have sworn the guy just poked me in the arm with his finger but he assured be that it was a needle full of anti-ecootie vacine. Seems he was telling the truth as I haven't contracted anything yet.
