Does location matter?

Post by hewett92 » Tue Nov 20, 2007 12:12 pm

I am about to buy a server and I saw the "LOCATION" Box..

Does it matter which location I pick? I don't fancy paying any extra for my server because I'm still in school so I can't afford alot.
I live in the UK and i see the option for London at 0.50 extra per player..

Thanks,
Hewett92

Yes location can make the big difference, if you check http://www.gameservers.com/why/network.php it will tell you the ping from your location to the EU location you are in.
