Why isn't the EU2 server up for ranked? I get a horrible ping at EU1. i'm sure there must be players who find this a nuisance. I hope WG does something about this.

Very simple: to make it easier for the MM to form teams without breaking the rank rules. If you split the playerbase across servers you'd more often get matches with rank-spread of 3+ which kinda defeats the purpose of the rank-MM.

Same reason why most modes besides randoms are limited to EU1 when the population for that mode is not sky high. iirc evnen historical mode did that. And if you lack players on some ranks on one server to get games going. It's not gonna help is it? Thus if you keep them all on the same spot. It's easier for MM to get games going across all ranks, not just the lowest ranks etc. As the player base for that mode is not gonna be high enough besides peak hours to justify it.

Eu2 has always less players.

Which is why they should do it on that server. It only makes sense to put the extra load over on the lesser used server.

I usually play on EU2 and no, it doesn't need stinking up with Ranked Battles.

While I don't have detailed knowledge of Europe's information hgihways, there's a fair chance EU1's better suited for the majority of the playerbase in terms of connection quality (which is probably why it has more players).
