I don't want to derail discussion so I'm only going to make one response.

Firstly, only one or two euros (namely sidey and cmk) are the only ones in recent memory to play on a bot where they didn't have 3 ping (east bot). Now you say I have mathematical issues, but in reality the america's account for a HUGE portion of sheep tag activity. When easties are on and euros are lingering (when easties hold majority) it should go to east bot without question. However all these europeans boycott it? I've not boycotted a game for delay in over 5 years, but people like polar, jean-mii, and many other negative influences not only never play in east host... they actively make sure it doesn't happen by ruining the games (joining, then leaving after noticing they have 60 ping).

I'm not saying every european does it, but easties have played on european host the VAST majority of games (and this is partly due to majority europeans), however time and time again when easts have the majority europeans drop like flies. A sick 3v5 on east host with east majority will never happen because the 2-3 euroes we need ALWAYS without fail boycott east host. It's not fair. It's not right. It's not fun to always play in delay. That extra .4 seconds delay can be the difference between a sick show and a toilet game. That is a huge reason of why I don't play, and a huge reason of why east sheep tag will forever be dead. Imagine if we had another server of resources again. The main reason people don't play on east anymore is due to the boycotts europeans made over east hosts. I watched east die moreso than anyone considering I'm the only true old eastie "semi" active.

tldr; it's not fun always playing at a handicap. Europeans need to be open to east hosts later in the day.
Practically everything said in this was true... (especially about the difference between 20 ms and 60 ms (.4 seconds) delay... Euro's case is decent with having 80 ms or 60 ms is probably quite true.
 as an Eastie I can say for fact we ALSO get these lags - in fact I have delay AND spikes and sure I do complain about it, but the mere moment it hits a euro they're
But hush the Tourny shouldn't not be played because of a little lag. Hope we can get a American Bot and MAYBE play it if we have a EASTIE majority. Euro majority = ofc Euro bot = Yeye?
Respect the Runtag.
