I have been getting ever more frustrated by the lack of teamplay in random games to the point that at least 60% of games are not fun because most of my team have run one way leaving 75% of the map wide open. Not only that, nobody wants to take a risk as they expect that they will not be helped by their team mates (I know this feeling very well from bitter experience) so the big group of attackers that have all gone one way get bottled up at a crucial point and as nobody works together to break out or through, they all get flanked and die. Thus, I get left to hold 75% of the map with 1 tank or TD and no hope because nobody is paying any heed to the messages I am posting asking for teamwork.
When I have written about this before I have been told that many people on the EU server don't speak English and this is why so many ignore the messages. That being so, i am wondering whether I should instead play on the North American server because at least the people playing on that server will speak a dialect of English and will be, at least in theory, able to read and respond to messages.
Has anybody tried it? What are the ping times like relative to the EU server? More to the point, can you even convert to another server or do you have to start from scratch?
All I want is to be able to start a game and not know within 45 seconds whether we are going to lose because a modicum of teamwork is employed. I am sick to death of seeing my stats slide to hell because I get unlucky with random matches filled with random sheep.

they've got the whole of the US on that server and a couple of SEA players so english isn't the only language :D
as for the teams i expect them to have the same problems as we have.

you will need to start another account [which is allowed within the EULA] on the NA server. but i tend to find there is a lot less aggression.
you may get the occasional wtf... but to date i have not experienced any blatant aggressive attacks.

Dont wanna know how much porn you download while you're gaming because i start to complain when my ping is reaching 60 (never reached 70) my ping is always around 25-40 ping
Let's leave the implication's regrading certain adult only aspects of life from the forums, please.

Only problem I had was the timezone difference, as I made friends they were never online when I could play the most games.

Finally, you have to create a whole new account.
Anyone know if I can use the same name & e-mail address or would that cause problems logging into the game?

Interesting to see what events and specials the other servers have, but like the NA but prob more so, the SEA server is very quiet, playing now 10:30am NZ and there is 1393 players. Been in games of 6 v 6. The pings get pretty awful as well, so EU server prob the best (maybe RU too). Not sure if the skills are any better, in fact sometimes it seems worse. Get good players, bad players everywhere I guess

Some games you'll get a lot of Brazilian players so there's less English in a few games than you might expect. I did play one match that started with:
"Hello from England."
"Poland here, hey."
Eventually a timid message popped up...."I'm from the US, can I play too?"
