Before starting an online game, you have to choose a region -- Europe, USA, etc. Does it really matter? I play in California, but I often go to the Europe board because it seems more active at the times that I'm playing. The games seem to move fast enough for me, but am I slowing other players down by doing that? Should I stick to the USA games?

You are not playing a FPS, so I would doubt it. Well, what have you seen in your games so far? Have you noticed lag or delay? If not, I would say not to worry about it.

The best thing you can do to speed up online games time is to be quick and decisive with you moves and turns because that's where the seconds really add up. On two separate occasions I have played a round with a VGGer from Belgium where it was just us plus one AI and we got done both games in just 35 minutes each.

I think the server thing is mainly to do with 'who's awake at this time?' rather than lag etc these days.

I agree with Jon. I've played a lot of online browser based games over the years, and since I'm a night owl, I play on UK servers a lot because my hours often work better with Europe. I'm on the East Cost USA. LOL.

But how is that better than just having one list of everyone that's online?
