Seems like Toronto-Reykjavik is ~130 ping but London is ~90 - so this probably wouldn’t work
Cool idea tho! Ping would probably just suck for everyone so it would be even in that respect

Also, medium speed = medium brains, I thought we’d been over this

We managed to convince NA that medium was better in Native in like 2015 and they switched, keep up with the times! Fastest is just left clicking with no finesse!

London is obviously the BEST choice from the BEST nation.
From all the extensive testing ive done the onl difference in fastest is that certain stunblocks that dont work on medium speed can get through like 70% more on fastest aka why dueling devolped more on NA because we had to deal with stuns more where Eus just blocked them like noobs.

Then any suggestions for a better server location than Iceland for NAs and EUs thats not a location already in use?
https://www.exitlag.com/en - EDIT: Warband isn't supported on this RIP, I figured it would be as Bannerlord is.

To actually answer your question, UK is your best bet as there is direct routing and the eastern europeans can actually play on it.
So imma just keep using express vpn and give up on the icelandic dream

Not that this is particularly good, but went on speedtest.net and changed the server to one in Reykjavik, I'm getting 63ping, Sweden 55ping and Germany 60ping. Unless I'm on google fibre, there's no chance I'm getting 15ping, then again I might be pleasantly surprised once the server has released.
Dang thats a fair point. Well if thats the case that Icelandic servers have bad routing and give people higher ping then thats a rip.
Ill host the server anyways and test it out worst case it fails best case it works.

I don't know what crack you are huffing Anthony but people from London still get 60+ ping to Icelandic servers. They have a very good network infrastructure but not that good.

Only place this is useful is for playing against US or Canada in NWWC to make it more even. But if you have to face Eastern teams they will get closer to 100 ping at the very least which I can tell you now they will not agree to.
Do you have prior experience connecting to NW Icelandic servers xD it could turn out when I host the server it gives everyone 150ping because of routing issues.
And yeah ofc for NWWC I feel the spirt of the game would be to play in the server location that the majority of people get the fairest distribution of ping. So for Eastern players a london or french server would be best if it was NA vs RUS or TUR.

Medium speed tho :)
as much as i want to agree, when playing with a large amount of high ping players fastest is better

Also by EUs u are talking about England, France, Netherlands/belgium and MAYBE Germnay... anything east of that will have 100 ping to iceland
fastest speed breaks game mechanics, native realised this and so did NW years ago, dunno why people still think using fastest is better
The NA's don't really remember but when we were having this conversation back in 2012-2014 it was always settled on using fastest because NA server hosts were extremely unreliable so fastest was necessary. Back then all you had were hosts like Bluefang which although they got better was an absolute pain in the ass for the 7NA servers etc.

I'm surprised east coast gets 45ms considering Iceland isn't at all situated in a good geographical location for servers, it's also very much NOT mid-atlantic
Iceland is an extremely popular server hosting location at the moment. After the banking crash the tech and networking industry has boomed. Geographical location isn't the full picture.

I'm surprised east coast gets 45ms considering Iceland isn't at all situated in a good geographical location for servers, it's also very much NOT mid-atlantic
Yes 45ping thou is only gonna be NYC with great internet. The rest will be 60+ I think. And for geography its not mid atlantic but its way better than any other places ive found so far.
Then why are we having this conversation? Feels like its only going to be good for you and your friends but shit for everyone else?
A lot of the Top NA players are either middle or east coast. So it benefits the large part of the community although leaving out CHADS like Glenn who is from CA or Hunteh from Vancover. Nonetheless though A lot of the top Eu players are English or French so we still get to see a gf vs top EU players with great ping and top NA players with good ping. So for a NWWC It would be good for the majority Id say.

Yes and for NAs I am mainly talking about those living on Eastcoast as well. If your in middle of the US your looking at about 100 plus ping still. But much better nonetheless.

Why do we need to move to different servers just to save the dead NA scene?

Wouldn't be bad for things like NWWC though, if there is another one.
Not suggesting move every single thing to icelandic servers. But there gonna be occasions where people will be able to have a much more fair competition with 60-80 ping than with 90-120 ping.

Greetings
NA and EU both have sizeable communities and a lot of the top competitive NAs are from the east coast. I believe  Icelandic servers would enable both communities to actually be competitive with each other. For NAs some like yoloswag could get 50ping while others like myself could range from 60-80ping. EUs would likely get 25-50 in central and western europe. I believe both parties would benfit a lot.
Myself 80ping and less is actually really playable and I think would enable a great influx in active competitive players in Europe as well as being able to do GFs between top NAs and EUs.

So far several people have come together to help get this sorted. Biggest thing right now is funding and technical help with turning a VPS into a live server that players can connect too. Once things get going I think we will have server donations open and if you want help with setting up the server message me on steam or reply on forums.

Tell me your thoughts on Icelandic server I think it would be great fun.

If you have any website you recommend for a VPS let me know right now I have two.

It looks like by Saturday we may have the server setup. Atm Scottish Unicorn is working hard to get it done and I plan on paying for the first month to see if everyone takes a likely to it.

Ping Times
As Iceland is geographically situated in the mid-atlantic, it has shorter ping times to locations in Europe than North America. Here are a few examples of nominal ping times from Iceland:

Amsterdam: 17.8ms

Budapest: 26.0ms

Glasgow: 13.0ms

London: 18.9ms

New York: 40.6ms

Halifax: 33.7ms

Hold attack and block at the same time when block then only release the block then reblock. This cancels the stun that is there when you only use the RMB to change direction when blocking updown.
