Why we can't have one server for Europe and NA players? I have friends who live close to NA servers and Europe and we can't play together... Why in 2018 we still don't have 1 server or 1 server with channels?

    I have no clue how hard it would technically be to make the game run on 5 different servers at the same time, and while I know it's possible, I can't imagine it's easy.

    Besides that, it is so much smoother to keep them separate. Event times, Server reset times wouldn't conflict with timezones, people could abuse those reset times by switching channels. A bunch of stuff I can think of that wouldn't work out or needs some serious work done to make it viable.

    But hey, at least you're not IP locked to Europe like you were in GMS. So you can still hang out with your friends :)
