European Server

I recently found out there is a whole different server for LoL in Europe.

I play with over 200 ping on the current server, so this seemed great to me.

However, if I was to play on European LoL I would have to start from scratch at summoner level 1.

Is there some possibility of changing the server my account is currently on?

If not, will there be in the future?

Not now; possible but not likely in the future would be my guess.

Until the level of service on the EU servers are an exact match to the level of service on teh US servers, I'm not going there.

The patches are not released at the same time, the developers posts are not replicated to those forums, the languages used ingame are too varied etc. etc.

Riot has a real stake in keeping people happy and pleased. The EU licence people, GOA, just want a low maintenance income source.

I predict it will never match the US experience. Instead, ping will continue to get better with tech progress.

When u dont know things its better to shut up :/

At first Eu servers was bad (the 1st month) but now i left US and playing there and i can say its great. Stable, they even apply patches faster (i mean downtime) than Riot do.
Stop blaming GOA becuase they failed in other games u played. This is a new game and currently they are doing their job fine.

As for late patches, they patch 1 or 2 days after US, so what?

This.

Also if I will spend money on this game, I would like it all go to the developers. Plenty of other reasons too.

The language variety seems like it would really kill the solo queuing as well.

Lets just say that GOA has a really bad reputation among Europeans.

Haigoeo actually got a point there. I still stay on the US Servers because the experience is better. The 2nd reason is because of the people who play there.
