Sup guys. Just wondering if you can play with americans if you are from Europe, in ESO. Is that possible?

We do not know. The only mention from devs, is that there will be US and EU data centers. If it means separate megaservers is yet to be clarified.

As Rage said, we don't know any specifics about the tech behind their "mega server" concept besides varying data centers. Personally, I'm hoping for US/EU integration.

I just hope that if we'll be restricted to players within the best connection reach that I'll have the option "english speaking only" Since european servers only tend to be filled with polish only speaking polish and germans only speaking german expecting everyone else to understand what they're saying and demand that you speak it as well....well....do speak german but the point is I prefer to stick to one language confuses me to shift constantly so let us merely pray for the benevolent Stendarr to plead to the developers on our behalf.

If you watch all of the video interviews in one of them, I forget which one, Paul Sage hints at there being a North American Mega Server and another one for Europe. I don't think they will be connected in any way though, so if your gaming friends are in Europe and you are NA I guess you need to make some new friends...

I quite likely am wrong about this but I do remember them saying two servers one for NA and one for Europe, though having the two connected so you can transfer data is quite possible to happen.

Thats actually the part he mentioned "data centers", not megaserver. It wasnt clarified what exactly data center means within their megaserver tech

@Rage is correct. They could just mean that these are established in europa and america since the data would take longer time to arrive from america to europe and the other way around.

That's what I'm hoping for. Individual and local data centers to manage local packets, and a crazy synchronization system to bring them together.

For a tech guy like myself, that's an awesome system to watch being implemented (if they are thinking along those lines).

let me tell you in a different way. you make a character. but you can choose phase from US or EU or other.

so your character can "change server"/phase. so you dont need to re-roll character each time you change server.
