    Looking for advice about server choice based on latency

    Hello fellows.

    I'd like some advice about whether I should pick a US or an EU server for better latency numbers.

    I plan to play this game from Pakistan and I really don't know which option has been known to yield a better latency.

    I would also like to know if there is a way to check latency/ping in Guild Wars 2.

    Additionally, if an EU server is the answer in your opinion, which one has a good population of English speaking players?

    Thank you in advance for any answers I can get.

    All servers in a region have the same datacenter. US/World is Texas, EU is Germany. There is a ping check for GW2, I'll find it for you. Alternatively, just use speedtest.net and select the data center. Texas is Austin, Germany is Frankfurt.

    edit: I found the ping test. It's in this thread. http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ng-amp-latency under troubleshoot. It's the -diag one.

    Thank you very much.

    That was quite helpful.
